Amazing food, picturesque views on the seaside and friendly staff - add here democratic prices and you get the best restaurant on the island! Try ceviche of fresh tuna with a pint of local ale and get poe for a dessert and have a fantastic evening there!

This is supposed to be one of the better places to eat in Hanga Roa. I cannot confirm, unfortunately. The view is fantastic. Right on the sea, with a view on the ocean. Gorgeous sunsets. As for the food, I was disappointed. I took some Camarones al Ajillo. They were served swimming in a gooey sauce, that did taste a... More

My daughter and I ate there for lunch. The restaurant was packed, so we waited a few minutes... and we were rewarded with a table for two, right above the crashing waves just behind us. Servers do speak basic English and they understand it too. Service was pleasant and not rushed (who's in a hurry on this incredible island???) They... More

Restaurant was recommended by our lodgings and it did not disappoint. The restaurant deck is right on the water with a fantastic ocean view. We had beautiful weather, a relaxing lunch and a fantastic introduction to Rapanui lifestyle. They serve typical Rapanui cuisine, good service, wait staff was very nice and friendly. Mid-range pricing.

I love this restaurant. The menu wasn't huge but there was something for the whole family. The service was good but the main thing was the verandah right by the sea from where you could watch the sunset and the surf. The house mohitos were divine - an evening here is just magical.

Because of the high rating, we visited for lunch. The wait staff appeared to be indifferent to us asking for a table. Few smiles -- we felt like we were intruding -- even though there were others having lunch. The wind was strong and there was a cloudburst, which soaked everyone close to the water. So, be prepared and try... More

The service is very slow. The tuna was very dry. Only the view is worth going here for and you can see that without going in the restaurant.

Great place to eat by the sea, little of sand for kids to play there , good food! Not many tables so if you are a big group you will probably need to book.

This was by far our best dining experience while visiting the island. The staff here is very friendly and helpful with making choices. I would highly suggest getting the daily catch since while we were sitting fisherman brought in fish caught that day. I had both the white fish and the tuna. Both were incredible. Wine selections here are also... More

Had an evening meal here and sat outside watching the sunset eating splendid good. The Pisco Sour was also very good. Mostly fish dishes but there are a couple of other choices too. The food was well presented and excellent quality.
