We have been this Chiquita a number of items over the last few years. Without fail, the welcome is always very warm and friendly. The food is well cooked, tasty and of good quality. Very tasty bread with butter and a garlic dip to nibble at whilst you are waiting for your meal, a good selection of vegetables to accompany... More

Have been here a number of times with friends and have not been disappointed, don't expect nouvelle cuisine but good portions of the more traditional type of food. Steak, chicken, fish etc, with vegetables. The menu is not extensive and there is nothing exiting but it is well cooked. The place is run by a lovely couple with minimal help,... More

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...
