Surely a very nice place to have a good meal in a very good ambiance. Meat very tender, tasty and pizzas are just perfect. The restaurant is surrounded by nature and that makes it even better. As for the service, charming, nice, staff smilling.

This restaurant is just a mandatory stop for people visiting Playa Grande. Just go and ask the local people. You'll get the best prices and delicious food around. It's open all year (not all the business around this area are), nice attention, you can say hello to Kike and talk to him about whatever you want. Furthermore, some crazy musicians... More

I ate here about 20 times on a recent trip to the area and found it to be quite good overall, particularly the fruit ices or milkshakes. One steak was pretty tough and the Bernaise sauce is really a mustard sauce, but the other steaks and meat were fine and I don't mind mustard.

Sort of a local hangout but very friendly there, good food and good prices. I had previously been there before but never realized they had a pool table, was kind of fun to go in there mid afternoon and have a few drinks while playing a few games of pool.

Visited Kikes many times during our visit as it was one of the only places that remain open in the off season. Wonderful service. Lots of TV's if you are interested in watching sporting events. Food was amazing and, as always, amazing prices. The rice and beans were my favorite.

A cool place to hang out after surfing and have a cold cervesa. The food is really good and at a good price.

We stayed at Playa Grande Park Hotel down the street which was undergoing restaurant rennovations and only offered breakfast.... so this was the closest place that was open late too. Fortunately the food here is good, drinks are good and the price is decent. We didn't try much variety but the pizza, arroz con pollo and burgers all were pretty... More

Everyone eats here at least once in P Grande or for us its almost nightly. Lots of Tico tourists, a few locals, expats and gringo toursts rounds out this open air eatery. Often noisy, particularly if a soccer game is on the TV, it is a lively place with good food and a cultural experience.
