Being a local and dining there several time our latest visit was great as it usually is. The sharing plates were beautifully presented and very tasty. Very happy to recommend Kika to anyone visiting Wanaka.

Well , what can one say, but truly excellent food , and especially for sharing. You could easily think Matt Moran is in the kitchen. Very good everything! The decor and atmosphere can be worked on.
