To start off the kika house beer wasn’t cold, and our wine glass was cleaned but certainly not dried as it had drops of water all over the glass. We ordered the feed me menu. The actual food was pretty good. Small portions but very...More

We had a fantastic night at Kika, having the banquet - three beautiful tapas, a main, two sides and dessert. Staff were friendly and the wine was delicious. Definitely worth checking out if you're in Wanaka.
