Description: 'South of the border' passion is always served up at Chiquito. A menu of bold Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine is prepared however the diner likes it. Burritos, sizzling fajitas and tacos can all be customised for vegetarians or those wanting more spice. A kids menu, games and entertainment add to the family-friendly vibe, and there is a great range of exciting cocktails, mocktails, wines and tequilas.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Very disappointed with Chiquito, the service was well below par. The food was okay, but not really up to much. Wish we had gone somewhere else really....

“Lovely food and atmosphere”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I love Mexican food and there was plenty on the menu. Even though kids are fussier eaters there was enough choice for them too.

“Too bad it's the only Mexican place in Swansea...”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Chiquito is really not a great restaurant. The food is alright, kind of like any other meal you'd have out to eat. However you are paying at least 10 quid for just mediocre food. The wait staff is awful. They are all so friendly, but this restaurant has the SLOWEST service I have ever seen. I've eaten here 3 times over the past 3 months, and each time it has been the same. The restaurant will be deserted and it will still take over an hour to get your food after arriving. Just not a great restaurant, especially for the price you pay.

“Fantastic food, great staff”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I went here with swansea uni music society for a social, the food was really good, the staff were really friendly and they managed to accommodate a large group of us and they did everything they could to ensure we had a great evening. The atmosphere is great and the food is very authentic Mexican cuisine. Overall a brilliant restaurant, definitely going to visit again!

“Lovely new menu”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoy Mexican food, so Chiquitoes usually ticks all the boxes. They had changed the menu on the day we went. The choice was much better than the old one. Looks like it will cater for more tastes. Huge choice too. Staff very friendly indeed. They also gave us a booklet with many great offers for our next meal (20% 10% off meal, free starter or desert) Complimentary Mexican spiced popcorn at start of meal. Generally a fun place to eat, great value for money, and no nonsense food.
