Great food, very refreshing menu, ingredients and cooking. Delivery of dishes was inconsistent in terms of the amount of time it takes between courses. Great spot for a date or family / friend gathering.

OMG! This was one of the most delicious meals I have ever had. Each new dish arrived and each dish brought groans of pleasure from our table. Staff were lovely, good wine list, relaxed atmosphere.
LOVED IT!

Lovely food. Service a bit slow and tiny bit inattentive - good but not 5 star.

Second visit for me and my wife's first visit. Needless to say, if you don't like seafood... you won't like Chicama but if you do...

The food was delicious again. Between two of us we had a few cocktails, 3-4 starter size plates (aubergine, cauliflower, tuna, peppers) we tried the trout and squid too and finished with the banana yuzu ice cream. All were great though the squid was probably our least favourite, I've had the Octopus before and wish I'd chosen it again as it is sublime.

All up £125 and we were stuffed. The wait and bar staff were fantastic as we had bar seating so it was nice and interactive. Can't wait to go again!

I’ve been to this restaurant a number of times and it has never failed to impress. Service was impeccable. They now have a menu with allergens listed which made one of my dining companions who is lactose intolerant very happy! Seafood was fresh and well cooked. Restaurant has a very relaxed and comfortable feel. Expensive but it’s consistent with location and quality of the food. Highly recommended.

Lovely place with great food. We had the tasting menu ( 1 vegetarian and 2 regular) and loved pretty much everything! Food was tasty, fish was fresh and we loved the concept of sharing everything. I also felt it was fairly priced. Overall will highly recommend it.

We had taster menu. It started well with raw fish with sauces but soon descended into a dark valley of stodgy vegetables and ither unknown substances in over flavoured sauces. One sauce which looked like porridge kept returning. And what did they do to the aubergine? Sickly sweet and cheesy? By the end of the meal was very pleased to be leaving. Unsubtle flavour overkill and often too salty. Helped along by overly bassy music. A disappointment.

Food was really good. Unusual dishes with lovey flavour combinations, some with a good kick of chilli. The sauces that accompanied each dish were especially nice and always had just the right amount. Everything was cooked really well and the waiters were attentive. I wasn’t sure the chart music really added anything to the atmosphere, but perhaps that is just a matter of opinion.

I booked Chicama for a friends reunion hoping that it would be a nice, chilled environment where people could catch up while being able to enjoy the atmosphere and listen to each other. This did not happen as we got the table by the door, where a queue started to form shortly after we sat down for our booking at 7pm. The acoustics were terrible and the noise levels unreal. Perhaps it would have been better on a week night. The food was great and so were the drinks. Service was done with a smile, however, anyone could sense they could not wait to get you out so as to get the next seating in. It’s just not what you expect when you spend quite reasonable amounts of money. It was not a relaxed evening as the diners were made to feel on edge due to the noise and the fact that the waiters and waitresses were wizzing around waiting for us to either place more food/drink orders (which was impossible as we went for the tasting menu), or get you out as soon as possible. I would probably go again, as I really did enjoy the food, but never again on a Saturday night. It’s the kind of place where people go ‘to be seen’ and it just gets so easily packed which can ruin the experience.

We went to Chicama for my birthday dinner with 7 friends. We had the tasting menu. Overall it was very good food - ceviche was to die for and popcorn chicken was delicious. We found the fish over-cooked but we were also slightly full by then. It was amazing value for £45. The service was also very good. We'll definitely return. Highly recommended!
