Chico's is an informal eatery with a laid-back, rustic appeal. Colourful painted scenes from Latin America adorn the walls and lively salsa music lifts the soul.

Originally, the menu here was purely Mexican, but the Turkish owner has begun to introduce Mediterranean dishes. This is a plus for all of Chico's patrons, presenting a great opportunity to taste multiple cuisines and influences.

We began by ordering borek: delicious filo parcels filled with feta and spinach and freshly fried. The golden pastry was warm and crisp, and the filling creamy and comforting. A vegetarian quesadilla followed, oozing cheese and offering just the right amount of kick (if you're brave, you can request extra chillies). As we ate, our main-course choice was decided for us by the mouth-watering aromas of the sizzling prawn fajita delivered to a nearby table. I took note of the grins on their faces, and the attentive staff soon brought me my own carbon copy - huge, juicy prawns, soft flour tortillas and superb accompanying vegetables. For a rousing finale, our dessert was a generous portion of Mississippi mud pie topped with an impressively light coffee mousse. This cooling delight contrasted well against the thick, chocolatey sweetness - delicious.
