A nice little restaurant where we, four of us sat outside for lunch a couple of times. Generally basic meals but always nice and hot and tasty served quickly. The owner very friendly and helpful to us non Spanish speaking Australians. Always people eating here which is a good recommendation and we saw other patrons there more than once.

We stopped here for lunch one day; found out later it is in a lot of guide books. The food was not great and overpriced (although most of the island is). The owner was not friendly at all, even by island standards. The guide books list this place as a moderate priced restaurant - it is not. We paid $8000... More

I've been to this place twice during my stay in Easter Island. I had a very nice and big chicken sandwich there, with local beer. The other visit I drank some imported tea. Not everything that is on the black board in the entrance or in the Menu is available, though. And the flavours are just right, with no extra... More

I had the pasta and a coffee and paid $US 23. The pasta was bland tasting, it was just green spinach pasta with some green stuff on the top so it didnt have any taste. I ordered the pasta because it was the cheapest thing on their menu. So maybe the other things on their menu would have been worth... More

The best lunch we found on Easter Island was at Anakena beach, second kiosk on the left. For lunch in Hanga Roa, we ended up going back a second time. We really liked the vegetarian salad, the chicken and beef sandwiches and the desserts and coffee were very good. Excellent price, quick and easy.

There are a number of resaurants along the main strip in Hanga Roa, and while this one does not have the ambience that some of the others might - it certainly has great food, service, and a certain island vibe that is wonderfully unexpected. We decided to have dinner there because it was one of the only places that was... More

The staff at Cafe Ra'a is friendly and welcoming. The place can get crowded. The food is good and the portions are fine. We went there twice during our stay. Always good !

An average restaurant and not very big either. Located on the main strip in Hanga Roa, we just stopped in for a quick lunch and had the spaghetti. It was overpriced but at least it was a large portion that you could split between two (you can't necessarily say that about other restaurants on the island). If you are staying... More

Like most places on the island the food similar to what you can cook at home with a george foreman grill and the price is ridiculous. Average for the island.

I stopped here mid afternoon it was one of the only places open at the time. Although a little expensive for south america they provided a very good lucnh. I had some deep fried boneless chicken pices with potato chips as a side to start the chicken was delicious and had a hint of a chocolate type taste. My main... More
