Kiki's reportedly serves some of the best Italian in Varadero, with pizzas topping the list of menu items most favoured by return customers. The menu features a selection of great value Italian and international dishes (with local specialties such as lobster tail present, naturally).

Although most restaurants in Varadero cater to an international clientele, classics of Cuban cuisine (many of which are a variation on the theme of rice and beans) are still served at local "paladares" (family-run businesses). One menu item that features prominently on local restaurants' menus is lobster, a marine product reserved primarily for export and foreign visitors, and one whose capture still remains a controversial topic in Cuba. Some local specialities include ajiaco stew, meat empanadas, as well as chicken and pork dishes.
