No time for guests.

Food was good. But the waitress had no time for me - she was very rushed. The dim lighting gives a good ambience but there was dust and spiderwebs on the lights. The mens toilets were bad - no lock.

One guest liked their BBQ chicken wrap but the burger had far too much chill jam in it and the pulled pork tacos were soggy. The most... More

We have used Ciquito on a few occasions as a pre-cinema meal and we have always had good food, drink and service. It's all good Central/South American grub! In fact it's only when you go somewhere else that you miss the little things that they do... We will return.

My friends and I visited the restaurant mid January for a celebration meal. Upon arrival, despite booking a table for 7.15pm, we were told that our table was just being laid and we should therefore wait at the bar (I was confused as to why laying down some cutlery would take long enough for us to get a round of...

Meals were brought to the table when we hadn't finished starters , then they tried to re heat it later and return it to our table . I found this place highly over rated and over priced for a bog standard tex mex house .

A Saturday evening out to celebrate a birthday. We booked a table so got to sit down straight away. The place was heaving but we got our drinks and food really quickly. Staff were really busy but they kept asking if we needed anything. The food was just what we expected and what we wanted it to be - excellent... More

If you want slow service with mediocre food then this is the place! Forgot our drinks order and our booking wasn't on the system, staff seemed miserable at times! Toilets need work

Great, fun atmosphere ideal for couples, families and friends. Lovely staff willing to attend to every need. Food can be fairly pricey but is good quality and cooked fresh. Lots of choice of dishes and the experience is topped off with good cocktails and complimentary popcorn on your table!
