“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Dined at Chico's on Friday night. I had the Fish and Chip's (special Friday price) and my colleague had the Venison. Both were excellent, as was the pleasant Chilean waitress who kept us happy. Will consider another visit next time I'm up in Queenstown.

“Good Stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

Food here was very good - as we went inside, we got a coupon for a free beer or a $2.50 glass of house wine. We took advantage of that as well as having lamb (which my husband reports was very good) and fish and chips (also good). The waiter recommended steamed chocolate pudding for dessert - YUM! He steered us right! Good food for a decent price - we were happy!

“Nice bar food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

We were enticed in with a free drink though you do have to pay $2.50 extra if you want the wine option, and you choose from the specials selection. Lovely old wooden building dating back to the 1800s, The free beer is much smaller than the one you 'purchase' but nice easy pub food. Nice balcony view available over the town mall, this was very busy and very popular.

“Great value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

We stumbled upon Chico's and were lured in by their $15 dinner specials including a beer. A great bargain! Fish and chips were wonderfully prepared- hot, light, crisp.
Cozy atmosphere overlooking a lively street, friendly service, beautiful historic photographs of Queenstown in the hallway.
