Kiki's has something for everyone from local fair to burgers to delicious seafood. Very casual and friendly. A great place for big groups and last minute get togethers.

“Best local "tipico" and bar in the area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Ir you are in Playa Grande for vacation this is one of the best local places to have a meal. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is not fancy just local, good and comfortable. Good local bar and service.

“It was good enough to visit twice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

We are an English family with 2 daughters aged 11 and 15.

This was a great find. Not fancy or pretentious, just a regular bar / restaraunt selling regular food well and charging a fair price. Unlike some of the other local restaraunts, tax was included and an automatic 10% service charge wasnt added.

Yes - we would go back again

“Good food any time and a pool table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

We like to eat early, and not all restaurants (especially in hotels) in Costa Rica serve dinner early (5 pm), but Ki ke's is open all the time and serves typical Costa Rican food in good and tasty portions for a reasonable price. They also have a pool table for your free use and we watch the Copa de Oro on their several screens. The server was friendly and quick and we liked it so much that we went back.

“Warm feeling upon entering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

Enrique's has been in the same place for 23+ years. As soon as you walk in, you can feel all the good times and warm energy that makes up the place. The typical rice and beans with fish is absolutely delicious. Filling as well. I also recommend the Cantonese rice. Enrique and Yarina are always there, chatting and making sure everyone feels welcome. It's a great place to watch any kind of sporting activity as they have 3 or more televisions. And the beer is cold.
