Stopped here for a mid afternoon snack. The cheese empanadas were excellent, some of the best on the island. I believe they were baked instead of fried, so less greasy that others we have had. No English menus or English spoken, easy to point and order inside though!

This restaurant has a variety of food, and there were also several excellent vegetarian dishes on the menu. The service was very friendly, and the chef easily provided onion- and garlic-free alternatives. We went back for several meals and were very satisfied every time. We were told that they had closed down, but this is clearly wrong!

We ate at this restaurant twice while we were at Hanga Roa and thought that the food was really good. Unfortunately, we heard that the restaurant was scheduled to close (ownership change...), and would probably re-open at a later date under a new name. So, if you are lucky, maybe you will have a chance to eat there before it... More

The Hetu'u has closed. I don't know what else to say about it. It was good originally, but went downhill of late.

We almost ate here twice it was so good. The food was authentic Chilean food. Fish carpaccio, ceviche, and empanadas were all amazing. Service was terrific. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Ceviche on the island is, in general rather disappointing because it is usually simply tuna. This restaurant worked with the same fish and shellfish and came up with something much better. The entire night was great, from a table seaside to 3 different dinners, wine and postres.

Another excellent ceviche in Hanga Roa! My husband loves ceviche and enjoyed his dish at Hatu U. I am not a ceviche lover and had the stuffed chicken that was excellent. The service was very friendly and attentive with most of the patio tables occupied. The Escudo beer and pisco sours were great. There was also a resident chicken and... More
