New Year's Eve.

This was a locals suggestion for New Years and they were right. There was a great vibe. Families of all ages were having fun, dancing and having fun. Glad we went.

Ok so when you pull up to Kikes- it doesn't really look like much. But then you sit down and have the nicest servers and the BEST FOOD!!!! Seriously- the fish casado was the best I ate in Playa Grande and the prices were so reasonable. Stick with local food as that was all delicious. The kids were not daring... More

We spent New Years here this year. We only had drinks, but they were very good, the music was great with some dancing in the later hours, the service was perfect and all of the people were very friendly!! This is a definite stop if you are near Playa Grande!!

It's about time I review this place - I've been here several times and every time I am happier. The location is great - walking distance to a beautiful, quiet beach great for swimming and surfing. Close proximity to other, busier and more touristy beach areas but totally relaxed and calm here. Plenty of people around but not hectic at... More

This place is at the top of the list for local Playa Grande hangouts. They've got a pool table, (something of a rarity in C.R.) lots of space, dancing at night and several big screens for watching soccer games or other sports. The waitstaff are quick and efficient if not overly friendly. They are also VERY helpful and will go... More

We ate here two nights in a row. It feels like a real locals place but at the same time, really welcoming to us gringos! We were served lovely food at sensible prices by friendly staff. Ultimately it's a bar serving food, there's sport on the TV and a pool table. Don't come here for a romantic meal but if... More
