There just didn't seem to be anything special about this place, except that the owner was very personable. If you can go on their open mic night, they some really great local talent. Definitely worth going if you can make it on one of those nights.

My 2 girlfriends and I stopped here to eat in April on our trip down the pacific coast. Gaston was so friendly and made sure we had a great experience. The food was absolutely amazing! We decided to have our big spending night here and weren't disappointed! The fish was delicious as were the mojitos. Loved the atmosphere of this... More

I went there with a large group of people the day after my brothers wedding. They took care of us so perfectly. Friendly accommodating staff and good music. The Grandma's Pork dish was one of the best pork dishes I've ever had! Please try it if you are in Santa Teresa

We came with a large group and sat at a long outdoor patio table. Menu is a few items on a chalk board that the server brings over so for the vegans in the group, there was only one option to choose from and one appetizer (which were both delicious nonetheless). The food was delicious but it was expensive for... More

So we are in our 20s and of course was wanted to go out one night. Our receptionists mentioned Kika, which is where there is a live band with great music. It's so much fun! People are doing their own thing, and the music is fantastic. We had a great time dancing and enjoying ourselves. Also, the drinks are good.... More

Came here one night, which happened to be the open mic night. Had the coco something shrimps. Which were good, but a bit overpriced I think.

This place is run by a friendly Argentinian guy. They were out of a lot of the menu when we arrived late, 9pm, so we were left with grandmas pork. To our surprise the pork was delicious, highly recommended!This is a good casual place to eat with friendly staff.

Kika had some really delicious, easy to like food. It is a bit hidden, and from the outside doesn't look like much. However, once you enter through the gate and peek behind the wall, Kika has a lot to offer you! We were there for dessert with friends while a live band was setting up, so the place got quite...

We had a party of 6 and the service was fantastic. The mojitos were the best I had the entire time I was in Santa Teresa (7 days). I got the coconut shrimp and my boyfriend got the mahi-mahi and we were both extremely happy. The coconut shrimp was definitely the best coconut shrimp I have ever had.

I've been going to Santa on and off for the last 10 years and Kika is by far our favorite restaurant. Every dish I have ever had there has been excellent. The staff and owners are always helpful and you can tell they actually care about their restaurant. Treat yourself to a night at Kika and you will not be... More
