Packed with authentic dishes from both sides of the border, the Chiquito menu captures the essence of all things Tex Mex. Start the fiesta with fully-loaded nachos or the soft taco sharer between a few amigos, before sampling the famous fajitas and burritos, or a classic chilli con carne. A take on the traditional Mexican market, the street food section of the menu features sweet chorizo croquettes, patatas bravas, and a flavour-packed Mexican frittata.

Family-friendly entertainment and a fun kids' menu evokes a vibrant atmosphere at Chiquito restaurant in Thanet. From the bar, a colourful selection of cocktails, mocktails, and tequilas will add a kick to any meal, whilst an extensive range of wines and beers are also on offer.

With a range of options for the entire family, Thanet Chiquito is a 5-minute drive from Minster Rail Station in Ramsgate.

    Food all ok but thought too expensive for what you got , and the drinks over the top

    We eat here once a year, when we visit Westwood Cross for our annual Christmas shopping trip. We enjoy the food and atmosphere at Chiquito and the fact that there are a lot of vegetarian options. We enjoyed our meal this year and our server was great - attentive, chatty etc. The only complaint is that our seats were in a really cold location, it felt like we were sitting directly in the path of the air conditioning. Other diners seemed fine, but we needed to wear scarves. After the main course, we mentioned it and we were told that the heating was being put on, however, I am guessing it takes time to warm up as by the time we left it was still cold. We were seated near the kitchen and I can imagine it must get really hot there for the chefs and the servers, but it really was uncomfortably cold. Other than that, all was great. We look forward to returning next year, but will be checking our seating location carefully.

    Good value with 50% voucher otherwise too expensive for what we received.

    We always go back to Chiquitos, as it's where we had our first date, however I wish it wasn't. The food isn't bad, however some dishes I feel we could make better if we'd made them at home. But the food isn't the problem, it is the service. I understand they were busy on the night of our visit, however being 'Orange Wednesdays' and right next to a cinema, you'd expect this every week and therefore it's obvious they need more staff. We had not only got our starters before our drinks, we'd even FINISHED our starters before we got our drinks. NOT ideal at a Mexican restaurant serving spicy food! The waitress didn't check on us once, we had to grab other waitresses flying by anytime we needed anything. I also pointed out that my sweet potato chips weren't cooked all the way through, so we got them for half price. Which is a gesture, but seeing as I couldn't eat them, I still shouldn't of paid for them. This is the second visit we have had within the last few months that has been disappointing. I can only hope they sort things out, as we used to love this restaurant.
