Casual dinner at local place

A small restaurant close to the Pacific Ocean. Very nice owner/cook, who seems to run the restaurant by herself. Not a fancy place, but good, honest food. The tuna trio was delicious, but on the small side (more like a starter). Therefore we additionally ordered the seafood risotto, which we... read more

We encountered this restaurant on our last night and it was by far the best meal we all had experienced on the Island! The owner is nice and an amazing cook! The food was fresh and delicious, highly recommended if dining in Hanga Rao, it has a great location, perfect for dining after watching the sunset at Tahai

This cemetery made restaurant is great to have at after-hours. The sitting arrangement at this restaurant is great as you can also enjoy sitting and eating the stars. The atmosphere in and around the restaurant is nice and soothing. This is the place to eat in peace, while enjoying the magic of nature. They offer extensive menu, which includes some... More

My wife and i arrived to this restaurant by accident, while taking some pictures of the cementery. When we got there, we ordered some nice drinks and food and were astonished to see that everything was way above our expectations. It is a small and nice restaurant, with some tables on the roof where you can see the sunset. Its... More

The simplicity and kindness of the owner that welcomed us was just the opposite of the food: was very, very tasty and elaborated.... Delicious in many levels. With a great view to the sunset, great atmosphere. Top #1 of our trip! Ask for the desert of the house, was even better!

The restaurant is located near the hostel where I was staying, I have gone there at least 3x first because it was close, the ocean view is great, is facing with one of the archaeological sites of Moai in the Island, the food is very generous and they have a beer too good of Tahiti. But the best of everything... More

We visited this place just to seek shelter from the rain...is very common in this island to start raining out of nowhere! So we asked for a bottle of white wine! A dish of fries and tuna and tuna's ceviche! The most amazing thing about this small but cozy place ( just 5 or 6 tables) is the view, surrounded... More

Hands down the best Tuna Empanadas on the island. So good I ate there twice on my visit. A great location with a lovely view from their deck out to the Pacific Ocean of Polynesia. The staff is very attentive and if you are lucky enough you will get to meet the beautiful and charming owner Miss Lily China Pakarati... More
