The atmosphere of Kika's is really nice and the food is really good! I don't think I would ever order pork at a restaurant, but my boyfriend got the Grandma's pork and it was so good I would order that every time! Our server was very lively and fun. I really enjoyed my visit here! Portions are large enough to... More

Kika is a perfect place for a romantic evening. The atmosphere is laid back, and the candles and dim lights are very cosy. The food was wonderful and the service was great.

It's a very nice place/garden restaurant. The specialty of the house, pulled pork, should be taken. Mainly it's an evening place suitable for every kind of visitor. Thursdays they do nice live music (the owners and their band) and do little warm up for the discothek just to the next.

Thursday nights everyone goes to Kika's at 10PM to watch the owner and a group perform both American and Spanish music. It was a great time. The food was good too. The place was so much fun and everyone was dancing. After midnight it closes and everyone goes to Reggae night in a dancehall/warehouse right next door. It was a... More

Very cute place, though our table was in the back corner of the restaurant and we kept hearing dogs and people on the other side of the fence... For dinner we shared the fresh fish (sea bass) and Grandma's Pork which was very good - both served with salad (which was a welcome surprise). They have live music there on... More

This is an Argentina-inspired menu with local seafood and beef. The octopus is worthy of a dinner portion and Grandma's pork is well worth the trip. Very friendly staff as well.

We really enjoyed our evening spent at Kika. The ambiance is great! We had the Grandmas pork, tuna with mango and limonade and everything was delicious!

What I love about Santa Teresa is that there is a lot of great cooking to be sampled. And, to some degree Kika is no exception, but on the same token it is NOT and exceptional experience. it is average. our meals were good. the menu is small but original. The drinks were pricey but adequate... Now, the reality is... More

The food here is over rated, running 15-20 per course. Small portions, and the Argentinian manager was really rude and condescending to our group. Best avoid. The drinks have rip off prices too unfortunately. Plenty of great places elsewhere in town.
