Very friendly service and the tagliatelle alfredo was tasty, The cook/waiter spoke good english. I got a very welcome greeting when I visited the place for the second time. Makes you feel special that they remembered you.

Sat down at this cafe for an early dinner. Ordered a spaghetti bolognaise and pasta with a cheese sauce. Both were not edible. The so called bolognaise came with no meat but this random vegetable slop on top. The cheese pasta was so sickly and like stodge. So these two dishes and two soft drinks cost us USD$71!!!!! I nearly... More

We were in Easter Island over Christmas and this place seem to be the only reliable and always open place to eat. The food (especially the bread and salsa) was good and reliable and they seem to be open from morning till evening everyday.

Our best meal on Easter Island. A little way out of the town but well worth the walk. Great fresh food; great welcome from the proprietor. Stunning sunset views over the Moai. It seemed to be well used by locals which is always a good sign. Eating out on Easter Island is not cheap but this was the best value.

Coffee and smoothies/juices were very tasty here and the outdoor front patio was lovely. The breakfast food looked amazing, but I didn't actually try any.

This place was quiet when we walked by, but the older yet hospitable owners welcomed us into their space like it was their home. I’m pretty sure it was the husband who sat us at outdoor table facing the main street, and the wife cooked us our food (or maybe it was brother and sister?). I don’t know what I... More

We three sat outside on yet another beautiful summer lunchtime and we're all served quickly by a lovely man, friendly and helpful. Two of us had the chicken and vegetable soup which must have had a whole chicken breast full of meat in it. It was delciious. Hubby had the fettuccine and ate the whole thing up happily. Although on... More

My friends (four adults and two well-behaved children) and I visited this place twice. It was two times too many. The first time it was disappointing - things were not good. Slow, unfriendly service and mediocre cafe con leche (coffee with heated milk). I never had the feeling they were happy to have us. Anything we needed, for example sugar... More
