We loved our date night here! Food was fresh and authentic and the atmosphere was great. Live music on Thursdays apparently but we weren't there late enough (done by 8). We got tuna and the Grandma's pork, plus dumplings and coconut shrimp apps and all were out of this world. Total was around $100. Our waitress was adorable and knew... More

We went here for drinks before going to La Lora (nightclub next door). They had live music and the feeling was good.

This is the place to go on Thursday nights in Santa Teresa. There is a live band from 10 until 12 and you can dance or sit off to the side for a break. It's fun and they play a mix of rock and classic hits. Afterwards, everyone goes next door to La Lora to keep on dancing.

We dined, sang and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this energetic, fun filled restaurant on opening evening. Gaston and Rafa were energetic hosts and continued to entertain when they started playing a set of popular favourites on stage! Great night had!! The lightly sealed tune and Grandma's Pork were standout dishes.

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.

Thank Nikolaus G
