Visited recently with friends for an evening out, I have to say the food is amazing,cooked to perfection. The owners are both very welcoming and attentive. Nothing is too much to ask of them. Can't wait until we return.

Have visited twice now, and both times have been excellent. The first time we visited on our own and we ate from the A La Carte. The last time 6 of us dined and ate from the set menu which at £14.95 for 3 courses and coffee is excellent value. Lots of choice and very generous portions. All of the... More

The owners were rude and not welcoming at all, food was not great, and not a good atmosphere! Will not be returning or recommending to anyone.

A cosy family-run restaurant where Dora always gives everyone such an affectionate welcome. The food is excellent always. The mid-week set menu is superb value for money.

I don't think I have ever been to a restaurant where I've felt more welcome than I do at Chiquita. You're treated like one of the family. The food is delicious, and the menu has a nice wide range of options with specials available based on what's in season. Highly recommended.
