Awesome experience

Awesome international cuisine, with a bit of everything to please everyone ! We went on a Tuesday and back the night after because the food was just heavenly. On Tuesday there was a live band and they also played on Thursday. You have to tast the pork, it literally melts in your mouth !

Kika's Thursdays are legendary, here it's not about the weekend But weekend is on a Thursday. Kika band is playing and the whole place is full of people so much that not everyone fits in and groups of people hang out on the street. After Kika closes next door LaLora is open later usually with Reggae party. We alao went... More

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

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 appetizers. I would go back again. They only...

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
