Always such fantastic food, all staff are so friendly and helpful, only negative was having to download the App for menu, when I’m out for lunch/dinner I don’t want to use my phone.

Absolutely delicious and interesting food. Two of my favourite things in the world are Chilli Margaritas, and Ceviche, and I was not disappointed at Chicama!

The food was nice, but the service fell short. Nobody asked me for an order for 20 minutes after arriving and that too only when I requested help. The same thing happened after the mains was over - they just left me to my own devices until I had to call for a waiter to order dessert.

Fabulous flavoursome food! The restaurant was very busy so it was a little hard to get service for additional drinks etc, which was fine until we were then rushed out the door (although we’d been without drinks for over 20 mins).
The outside space is exceptionally well heated.

Long wait outside to be seated, seated 45 minutes after our booking time and not updated by staff. Rushed through our meal with no time for dessert as the previous dinners overstayed their slot. Incredible food but let down by the service and rushed experience.

The maitre d' was lovely and super helpful in sorting out our table however for some reason our food kept going to other tables first or we were bought items that we hadn't ordered. The 'outside' area was lovely but was very packed. Think I was in touching distance of the person next to me which didn't really bother me but might bother others.

The food itself was average - just a bit bland and everything needed a bit more sauce. Thought it was also a bit overpriced for what it was.

Me and my partner booked a tasting dinner menu for our anniversary hoping to spend a lovely time while having best of chefs dishes.
Menu looked amazing, we were looking forward to it.
Unfortunately first 5/8 dishes came at once so sadly most of the courses we had to eat cold and before we finished the plates were replaced with the remaining courses. I m pretty sure they would of put them all on the table if there only was enough room. No one advised once what food we are having so we had to guess plus the cutlery was constantly missing. On the plus side the dishes that we managed to have warm were very tasty.
Not a fine dining place.

the food quality was good , nothing too special for the price and size of the plate all in all you could go to a cheaper restaurant and get the exact same service/quality of food but larger portion

The service was very slow even though the restaurant was 30% full, between the dishes waiting time took between 15 and 30 minutes. Some of the dishes weren’t quite cooked to a standards. Octopus was over grilled and an egg on sourdough bread with avocado tasted interesting, avocado tasted like it was a watery mix with lemon.

As always amazing food, service and atmosphere. Given how busy it was (last night before lockdown 2) the service and quality were exceptional. Amazing balance of flavours across all the dishes we had and the pud (not normally a pudding person) was probably the best I've had in a longtime. Can't wait to go back.

Thé food was excellent but the service was way too slow. Took us 45min to get the starters. Not sure if there was an issue on that day. The cauliflower were to die for though

Waited 30 mins to be seated despite having a booking. They were busy however the wait staff were not very attentive. We has to ask on three separate occasions for the waiter to come to take our orders (drinks, dinner and then desert) as the wait staff wouldn't have taken our orders otherwise.

The staff were very nice when we got their attention however appeared to be spread very thin.

The food, drinks and ambience were great!
