First time I have eaten at Chiquita's. Grandparents took me and my family there for a Sunday lunch treat to save on cooking. Friendly welcoming by the wife (who does front of house, the restaurant is family run) who took our coats and umbrellas and put them out of harm's way. Vegetable soup was nice and hot and the aioli... More

We have been going to this restaurant for christmas for the last 10 years and also inbetween. They are the most lovely, friendly and kind couple you could ever meet. The food is fantastic and service perfect. You could never find as good quality for the price anywhere else.

New to the area, we stumbled upon this restaurant by chance, and on speaking to friends and neighbours decided we had to try it for ourselves. It's basic and a little dated decor wise, but immaculate, and the food is phenomenal, the wine a treat, and the price is definitely right! Will be returning again, especially as it's within walking... More

This family restaurant has been going some years now and is still very popular and has many regulars who keep coming back. We settled for the fixed menu which offered a good choice for all three courses, some had the whitebait, which was piping hot! and delicious and the musroom starter also met with approval, we all decided on the...

Auguistin in the kitchen and wife Dora in restaurant. excellent set menu Mon-Fri, their Rioja wine is bargain priced. Location is not the best but I imagine the rent is low allowing good prices. Decoration very plain. Some reviewers complain it is not Spanish enough, they confuse it with a Tapas bar - this is a restaurant. Pinchos Murinos starter... More

I live 5 minutes walk from this restaurant and have visited several times. It is in a quiet road with not much going on and often the restaurant is quiet although not when we visited this week. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly but not over the top. The decor is a bit dated but the atmosphere is always... More

First visit to the restaurant as recommended by a friend and will be going back again for sure. Family run who are very attentive and friendly, service is impeccable. Food is exquisite, not the largest of menu's but oozes flavour and presentation. Highly recommend the scallops and T-bone veal. Also has specials board and if you can manage a dessert,... More
