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.

Heck, you are steps away from the ocean - why eat anything else. Options abound but this place is sure thing if seafood is what you seek.

We had an excellent fish dinner here! The service was a little spotty. But the food was worth it. The view of the water is beautiful. We missed the sunset but could only imagine how amazing it would be from this restaurant.

As others have already noted this is a very good place to eat and it serves particularly good fish dishes with a variety of interesting sauces. The service is friendly and prompt, by local standards and if you are on the island for a few nights this is definitely a place that you should try at least once. A table... More

My favorite island restaurant because of the amazing sauces on the *very* fresh fish. Be sure to try the 5-pepper sauce...it get's 5 stars! Also, if you're craving veg, instead of rice or salad, get the stir-fried veg... Great! Only frustration is that it seemed to frequently be closed or to open fairly late in the evening for dinner.

food is overpriced on the island and this is no exception but at least the food is tasty and well prepared.

Popped in to avoid a rain shower and had a really excellent meal. I had fish in a coconut and fruit sauce and my partner had a steak. Both dishes were really very good. The service was quick and friendly. It was reasonably priced for Easter Island. Couldn't ask for much more.

When we weren't eating empanadas, we were at Makona for the large variety of fresh fish and ways to have it prepared. Everything we ordered was excellent, prepared perfectly, and very tasty. Service was fast and precise and the food costs are very reasonable. You can get just about anything to drink as the waiter runs to the grocery store... More
