The food is good and everything is reasonably priced. The waitstaff is competent and friendly and no one rushes you.

Not the cheapest restaurant in Hanga Roa but worth every penny. Our fish was so fresh, deliciously prepared, and beautifully presented! Five Stars.

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.
