I have been here for one month and honestly, Makona has the best food EVER! My suggestions: Start with Shrimps (10US) , later Tuna Carpaccio or Papa Makona. And it´s not expensive as other places in the island.

It was our first meal in Rapa Nui and we really enjoyed it. We had the ceviche and the mahi-mahi. For dessert, the dolce de leche crepe was very good as well.

The restaurant is on main street, few steps to supermarket. We tried the coconut fish soup, vegetable omelet and a paste, all very good. The fish soup there is the best we had in South America.More

It's on the Main Street. We actually stopped a 7:30 and were told 10 more minutes. It opened at 8. The seafood soup was pretty good. The steak was taste less. Pisco sour was strong.
