Several weeks ago Social Student was invited to the Chiquito VIP Launch Event, in Leicester Square, to sample the new food and cocktail menu. So, we thought we should review it! (You know, being a blog and all!).

We arrived at the event (slightly late thanks to the tube!) to be greeted by red carpet and several photographers. This was enough to make us feel like ‘VIPs’ and set the tone for the evening. Upon entering the restaurant, our photograph was taken and, although we were not sure why at the time, the reason for this was going to become obvious later.

After receiving a complimentary glass of champagne, we were then taken to our table. The very helpful waiter then took our drinks order and was more than happy to offer recommendations on the food and drinks menus. His extensive knowledge of both helped us greatly in chosing from the vast offerings.


Our orders were taken and we began taking in the lively atmosphere of the newly refurbished restaurant; we were particularly impressed with the addition of a traditional Mexican band roaming around the dining area. Check out the short video below:

Moving onto the food, we have put together course-by-course reviews, which you can check out below:

Whilst eating our main course, a member of the PR company brought us each a copy of the photograph taken at the beginning of the event, which had been edited and put on the front of a mock up of “OK” magazine – a nice gesture and great memory of the evening.

After finishing the last of our Ultimate Margaritas, we left the event. Chiquitos had put on a fantastic evening filled with laughs, good food and the best atmosphere we have ever experienced in a restaurant. We encourage you to check out your local Chiquitos branch soon and try the new menu… You will not be disappointed! And don’t forget, Chiquito’s offer 25% student discount all year round!
