    Booking the table was easy online,but staff initially didn't seem to realise we were booked! Then expected us to sit at a very dirty table/chairs,food and a broken sombrero on floor. They quickly sprayed and cleaned but we had to wipe dry all the seating with the serviettes as we didn't want to sit on wet seats! The cocktail pitcher we ordered had more ice than mojito in so struggled to get 4 drinks out of it! Food was ok but not as good as we've previously experienced at chiquitos. Felt more like dining at a McDonald's than a restaurant. Far better restaurants to eat at in the lovely setting of gunwharf than here!

    Not a good experience here - when I booked the table I requested a booth, which we didn't get however we appreciated that the restaurant was busy. Also when booking the table I selected the fixed menu offer, we were not given these menus and when I asked for them we were told that the offer doesn't include Saturdays, even though on the website it states 'all day, every day'. My boyfriend ordered the garlic pizza bread starter and asked for chorizo to be added, when this came out it also had sweetcorn on which he doesn't eat and wasn't stated on the menu that chorizo meant chorizo and sweetcorn, when we told the waitress she changed it to a plain cheese as apparently they couldn't make it without sweetcorn. When it came out the base of the bread was still raw and the whole thing was very sickly, my boyfriend who is a big foodie could not eat it. We still got charged for the chorizo! To top it all off, whilst we were waiting for our food a waiter who was carrying too much dropped a full pot of sauce which went all over my boyfriend and my friends brand new Michael Kors handbag! They gave us 25% off (came to roughly £15 off) our bill at the end, but considering this whole experience we won't be going there again any time soon.
