The Hetu'u has closed. I don't know what else to say about it. It was good originally, but went downhill of late.

Food is typical island fare. Service was good. Food between main course of fish and beer was about $32 USA.

We almost ate here twice it was so good. The food was authentic Chilean food. Fish carpaccio, ceviche, and empanadas were all amazing. Service was terrific. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Ceviche on the island is, in general rather disappointing because it is usually simply tuna. This restaurant worked with the same fish and shellfish and came up with something much better. The entire night was great, from a table seaside to 3 different dinners, wine and postres.

Another excellent ceviche in Hanga Roa! My husband loves ceviche and enjoyed his dish at Hatu U. I am not a ceviche lover and had the stuffed chicken that was excellent. The service was very friendly and attentive with most of the patio tables occupied. The Escudo beer and pisco sours were great. There was also a resident chicken and... More

Ate here three times, as this place seems to always be open! We found the service to be attentive and friendly. We ate mainly fish (although my partner did have chicken one day) which was fresh and tasty. I had the ceviche on one occasion and highly recommend it. The mixed vegetables were also surprisingly good (fresh)

The service. My wife is allergic to fish and seafood which caused problems given that the menus on Easter Island are dominated by these (not surprising 2000 miles from the nearest land) but they provided an excellent meal for her the first time we ate here and again when we went back. Good atmosphere also.

Visited this unpretentious restaurant on the advice of hotel receptionist. Local fish fried in a light batter was solid, meaty, tasty stuff. The barbeque sauce with which it came was surprisingly apt for the dish. Fried sweet potato slices were crisp without being dry and sauteed vegetables were varied and plentiful. This was simple but imaginative food helpfully and quite... More
