I give my first review to this restaurant! Originally we asked our rental car owner for recommendations of good local restaurants, and this is one of his top lists. We just had dinner tonight and it was the best meal we ever had on this island. By the time we finished snorkeling it was about 7:10pm, we were so hungry... More

I love to eat in this restaurant, specially to share a nice time with friends. Meal is tasty and abundant. I love the "papas makona" which is a mix of chicken, shrimp and beef with a cheese sauce with french fries.. simply delicious! The people that work there are very friendly and always with a smile in their faces..

Lovely ceviche, soups and grilled tuna. All made as we asked and came fairly quickly - for Easter Island standards.

Nice place, very good food. Nice ambience and service. A little expensive but not for island food. A pretty broad menu too, We had local fish, which was very nicely done.

I stayed on Easter Island for over a week and tried tons of restaurants. This was one of the few that we went to on multiple occasions. The waiter, who I think is also the owner, is a really nice guy, and speaks good English too. The menu has English listings in addition to the normal Spanish listings. The best... More

Dived all day, really hungry. Great ceviche, great steak, great service and a good street presence. For the linguistically lazy the menu is in Spanish and English....Wanted to return on my last evening on the Island, unfortunately closed.
