After a wonderful meal here on our first night, we returned twice during our visit to Easter Island. The meals are not cheap, but are beautifully presented and there’s a good variety on the menu. The staff are friendly and helpful and coped with the...fact that we only spoke English. I asked for the octopus in Grand Mariner sauce as a main, and it came with greens and a bowl of rice. Quite delicious! Highly recommended.More

After visiting the local museum I decided to stop by because I had read in the lonely planet guide that the tuna in vanilla sauce should not be missed. I was weary that pricing can be excessive but the menu seemed reasonable…and I can be...a hard critic, and also a picky eater. I was not disappointed. the cafe americano had while waiting was great, but the tuna in vanilla sauce was out of this world to say the least. Chef Paula cooked it it to perfection and the accompaniments were perfectly chosen complements. To boot she was happy to provide details about the ingredients and provide excellent lunchtime conversation about local culture. Very professionally done, my mind has been changed about restaurants in general and I recommend everyone visit and enjoy a fine and memorable experience on Easter island.More

We decided to order fish both times we were here, the first time I had something between a tatare and ceviche of tuna, which was very nice. The other time I had the pasta with seafood dish, which my partner had enjoyed the day before....Service was friendly and attentive, and inside the atmosphere is nice, although it doesn't look much from the outside. No terrace.More

We had intended to eat elsewhere but due to the holidays most places were closed. They impressed me. I don't usually take photos of my food but felt it was a must. For appitizer we had Octopus in a Grand Marnier sauce. The tuna salad...and chicken were equally delicious.More

Our tour guide booked us here for dinner. Nothing fancy from the outside, but once inside, the service and food was outstanding. Michelin star quality food, the chef is very proud of her food and presented it beautifully and talked with us at each course....She even sources some of the fruit from her own garden. Wonderful experienceMore

I am a vegan and she made me a wonderful meal. So good dreaming of going back. I traveled in Chile and Argentina for three weeks and this was the best meal I had. I would call her ahead if you have special diet issues....Really wonderful food and people in the restaurant.More

We were directed here by our hotel but were very disappointed. The food is edible but utterly lacking flavor or character. For example, a seafood pasta consisted of underdone fettucine (not al dente, underdone; I know the difference) with overcooked salmon (fibrous) and acceptable shrimp....All this for over US$ 20 in a crude dining room with crude furnishings. The local beer they pushed onto us was sour, vinegary.More

We ate quite well on Easter Island, but we didn’t expect to find an EXCEPTIONAL restaurant there. Au Bout du Monde is, though. I agree with another poster about the tuna with vanilla sauce; lovely. The chef is a true chef — inventive without being...silly. An outstanding ceviche came with a little jam — who knew how marvelous that would be? Another poster was disappointed that the curry wasn’t spicy. I like spicy, too. But Chilean food is never spicy, so I wouldn’t expect it — the curry served on the flight back to Santiago was completely tame, too. The service was fast and very courteous and friendly. The view of the sunset over the ocean was perfect. This was a terrific meal for anywhere in the world, and a real treat on Rapa Nui. Don’t know how they do it.More

Loved this restaurant from first sight. ABright pink and turquoise pillows on the seats made you feel welcome and warm. Amanda and Tatiana were our servers. Both friendly and informative. We enjoyed the Chilean King Crab Pie. It was delicious. My husband and the filet...and beef. Presented in an artful way. Paula, the chef joined us at the end of the meal. A rare culinary gem in the island. Au bout du Monde is lucky to have her. Highly recommend.More
