I just wanted to say that there’s a reason Chiquito’s in the Metrocentre is our favourite restaurant.
The people.
When we go it’s like meeting old friends. We’re always made welcome and everyone is friendly - and real! No fake politeness. No dissembling to the patrons. Just an honest to goodness warm welcome.
Danielle can’t do enough to ensure we have a great time. We miss Rachel when she’s not there. Darren is not afraid to issue a rack of ribs challenge to my 10 year old son! My son totally smashed it by the way...
What can I say?
Great people +
Great food =
Great times.
Nuf said.
Do yourselves a favour.
Go make friends with the folks at Chiquito’s Metrocentre.

Myself and my partner visit here once every couple of weeks. However recently we have been very disappointed in the quality of the food we have been served. However despite this upon our visit today (29th April) we were served by a lady called Terri, she was very friendly and polite and even though she told us she’d had a very busy day... nothing was a problem for her and she dealt with our problem efficiently

We visited here on a busy payday weekend for dinner without pre-booking. Although we had to wait for a table, this was only a short wait. The staff were clearly very busy but went about their duties with an air of calm and efficiency. Our waiter was lovely being attentive without being overbearing and made us feel that we had as much time as we needed to choose and enjoy our dinner. The food was of its usual high standards and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

Definitely worth a visit.

Firstly my wife and I have been here several times and not experienced any of the issues others have commented. The staff have always been friendly yet proffessional, even when faced with demanding and awkward customers.

Yes the place gets busy (currently here on a payday weekend!). But aside from understandable delays in finding a table we were treated politely and the food was the same standard we have come to expect from previous visits!
