I would have expected better quality for the amount they charge. £19 for an 8oz rib eye that tasted nice but was cold. A pepper sauce on the side was also cold. The salmon fajita was with peppers and onions. 4 thin slices of pepper and a huge portion of semi cooked onions. The burgers are ready made burgers. I cannot understand this mentality of ready made burgers. How difficult is it to make a burger. It tasted like rubber. Service was ok but food was not exciting. Forgot to mention that corn on the cob was awful. Won't be going there again

“Wasn't perfect, but we had a great night :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I went out with a group of friends for a birthday meal. The food choice was brilliant and it was delicious when it came! No complaints on that front :)

However we had to wait 2 hours just for our one course to come because the restaurant was so busy, but unlike the other reviews the staff (Especially Ben because he was awesome!) were very apologetic and we got drinks and nachos on the house and a big overall discount without asking. And we still had a great night! We'll be back!

“Good service, enjoyable food, high price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

I think my title says it all. The service was great, the staff were very attentive. However, the restaurant was just about empty. The food was a welcome change from the usual Chinese, Indian, English that's available in our country. I loved my burrito, but I just couldn't help feeling it was very expensive for what it is. Saying that, they do have a cheaper lunch special menu which seems good value, but I can't comment on the quality or quantity of the food off that menu as we didn't order from it.

“reasonable...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Chiquito´s is a very known restaurant chain in UK. You can find in several different cities and to whom are a mexican food lover this is a good option for a relaxed meal. If you have kids, they gonna love it!

This restaurant in Peterborough have the usual decoration by Chiquito, but the particularities are the wide space between tables and the light. Because it´s a big space and full of windows it´s a bright restaurant.

The food is the same as usual, some mexican delicacies: starters, mains, desserts and drinks. But there´s also some internationals influences/options so anyone can find something that fit their particulares wishes.

The staff efficiency maybe is the thing that can change from one to other restaurant, I have visited this restaurant twice and I was always very welcomed.

Regarding price, they use to have some special deals quite often!

I would say that is not the greatest restaurant, but to whom like this kind of food and a relaxing meal fits the needs.

“Slow”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We have just been to Chiquito in Peterborough when we arrived we had a 10 minute wait for a table even though other tables were available after ordering a starter and main the starter arrived relatively quickly but after finishing that we have had over an hour wait. After asking about the food twice we were told it is on its way a further 20 minutes later we still had no food at this point we had had enough and told them to cancel the order as we are not waiting any longer the was not even an apology for the time waiting. We will not be visiting them again
