This restaurant was recommended to us as one of the best restaurants in Hanga Roa. Though we had been warned that it was a bit expensive, we were happy to give it a try to see what more of a "fine dining" experience on the island would be like. The night that we dined here there were only 3 other tables of people for the entire night. That could be coincidence or it could be that it is a bit too pricey for the food being served. They started us with some bread and salsa (a combination we became more accustomed to in Chile but certainly welcomed and different from the US). My friend and I shared 2 appetizers - the tuna ceviche and the mixed seafood. The ceviche was great - soft chunks of tuna that were almost sweet - mixed with sliced tomato, red onion and garlic. The mixed seafood was a warm dish that was rich with butter and mildly spiced with scallion, garlic and kalmata olives. My main course was fish soup, and as you can see by the photos, you got the whole fish in your bowl! I love whole fish so this was a highlight for me, but to some it may be off-putting. Overall the food was good, but our meal cost about $150USD all total which seems like quite a lot. I suggest sharing one appetizer and each getting a main as we over ordered and ended up having to leave most of our main dishes. The server was a bit absentee, and though if they were busy I could understand, but they were far from that.
