We had a very lovely evening. The food was beyond delicious. A must go back
It was cozy, quiet enough for good conversation, but lively. The food and wine we had was great, the service excellent, the atmosphere not rushed.
I've gone to Kika several times for quick and tasty business lunches. This time, the whole restaurant smelled bad--like sulphur. I'm not sure if it was sewage or hard boiled eggs? I hoped for the latter as I chose to not relocate our quick business lunch. Our server didn't acknowledge a single one of us as we said hello and thank you for the waters. She barely found it possible to talk to us throughout the meal. I'm going to move on to a different go-to place for my business lunches.
Great experience as always! Great food and drinks. Friendly staff and easy going ambiance. Strongly recommend this place for tapas.
We had a great time, very nice place good service
Loved the food options - first time, will definitely be back!
Sadly the first 3 items I ordered from the menu were not available
The stuffed eggplant had an excessive amount of garlic and was served in a bland tomato sauce tasting as if poured from a store brought can. Similarly the batatas bravas were bland and dunked with hot sauce.
My wife and I had a nice meal. Sharing tapas was enjoyable. Patatas bravas, crabmeat timbale, eggplant dish and shrimp with garlic were tasty and filling. Service was good; portions were ample and the atmosphere was nice. A nice Spanish dining experience in Cambridge!
Staff was very welcoming and friendly. The menu was full of great options. Unfortunately they did not have one of the tapas that I wanted to try but overall the food was excellent. Great service. I recommend that you try one of their “Almodóvar inspired cocktails”. I hat the Patty Diffusa and it was excellent!
Everything was very tasty and fast. Roasted potatoes, grilled artichokes , tenderloin in Chimmachura, lamb chops, lamp albondigas. I will be going there again!
There are four restaurants, shoulder to shoulder, in this nice quiet side street in Kendall Square. In my mind, Kika is the best for lunch, given its variety and good hot food. It is not frufru, and thankfully more substantial than sandwiches or pizza.
I am never disappointed! Their sangria is the best ever, with a new fall apple flavor. Their steak is probably the best kept secret in Cambridge-a great steak at a Tapas restaurant. All of their small plates are delightful!
Great location with garage and street parking nearby. Great atmosphere and great food. Had about 8 different Tapas and they were all delicious. Paella was also very good. Had several deserts which were also delicious.
When I lived near Cambridge, which ended in late 2015, I really liked this restaurant. So on my recent visit (November 2017), I went there with a colleague. It was good, but only two of tapas,
Duck Leg and Eggplant Rolls, were excellent.
One of out favorite tapas places! Great food and a super nice staff!
I’m hesitant to share my true feelings about this hidden gem for fear the next time I want to go I won’t be able to get a table, but others deserve to enjoy this fun, lively restaurant serving up authentic Spanish tapas (and doing it well), so I will risk it!
Nice little find. Good atmosphere and lots to chose from on the menu. Great Sangria. Good friendly service. Would definitely go back.
Food was lacking flavor all around. Was dismayed that gratuity added to tab without informing me because we chose to eat on the patio. Nothing on the menu about this; we were only 4 people.
Really liked the duck with berry sauce and clams in white wine sauce. Shared 5 dishes amongst 2 adults and 2 little kids. Just the right amount, no leftovers! Can't wait to try the Paella next time, it takes 20-25 mins so we didn't want to wait with 2 hungry kids 😀.
While the food was truly excellent, I have never had such poor service. Not once did the waitress check in without one of our group members going to get her. In addition, we were seated in a mostly empty restaurant next to a larger group that was so loud that we couldn't even hear each other speak. The outside looked to be having fun, but on the inside, we did not.
