Terrific food, mellow vibe and good value

Just arrived in St. Teresa and i'm staying across the street from Kika. Got served quickly. Entrees come with salad and potatoes or rice. Had a delicious spicy tuna and had a taste of the octopus appetizer. Both were very nice. Almost all outdoor seating. Menu has about 10 entrees and 5... read more

Kolas is a very cosy restaurant and promising menu. Unfortunately we were very disappointed of the food and bad service.

The Grandma's Pork is really something, so good it totally melts in your mouth. The entertainment on Thursday evenings is really worth a visit too!

We liked this place because of the staff and atmosphere - outdoor dining in a yard/patio, warmly lit with dogs wandering about and a stage (we didn't hear music). Although there was no music that night, they were playing the best music of anywhere we went in Santa Teresa. Unfortunately the fish was overcooked to our liking. The octopus, however,... More

I cannot say enough good things about Kika! My husband and I stopped in for dinner and were immediately greeted by a very friendly server. We ordered the grilled octopus appetizer, it was delicious! Next we shared "Grandma's pork", so far this has been the best food of the trip! The pork is cooked to absolute perfection and finished with... More

Super friendly and hospitable hosting! Sexy people, good chill. Awesome rocking band with bongo swing and touch of Latin inspiration...that will get anyone on their feet straight to dance floor! You'd spend every given Thursday at the place like this! BTW I've heard they do a speciality pork! Apparently secret Argentinian family recipe! If you are someone who likes meat,... More

Super laid back atmosphere with a good vibe. Limited menu but with a good selection. I had the tuna which was very fresh& cooked to perfection. It came with potatoes& a salad. Priced right, I would definitely eat here again

Seriously get the Pork. It's a quaint little spot with a cool atmosphere. Grandma's Pork was really tasty. It reminded me a lot to some of the roadside food trucks in Hawaii, but the quality of the meat was much better. Good Mojito's too.

First off this is not a restaurant review, this is an entertainment review. We showed up on Thursday Night after 10:00PM, because it was touted as the night out spot from 10-12 for live rock music then followed up by a stop next door for the 12- ? Reggae music scene. We rolled up about 10:15 and the street and... More
