My wife & I had dinner here twice on March 29 and 30 – at the recommendation of one of our tour guides. The first night my wife ordered the grilled fish and I had the sea food soup. The soup was excellent with a tasty broth and lots of fish. We shared a delicious dessert of chocolate layered cream... More

Ate at La Kaleta twice during a 5-night trip and would give it comparative good marks. Sunset views are great but the frontage is very limited and the best-positioned tables are often either taken or reserved, so it's not the top place on that count alone. But it more than makes up for it with food quality and more-reasonable prices... More

This little restaurant is right on the waters edge, literally! If I moved my chair too quickly to the right I would have ended up in the ocean. The food was incredible. I ordered risotto with shrimp and langostinos, and not expecting too much for an italian dish, was so surprised. The risotto was creamy and the seafood very tasty.... More

We were on Easter Island for 5 nights, had read all the restaurant reviews prior to our trip and went to a different one each night. On our first night we were walking around and found La Kaleta. It was not busy – we eat early. The menu was posted in both Spanish and English on large chalkboards. Service was... More

Wonderful surprise with tables right on the water and some of the best food we had on our trip to Easter Island and the Galapagos. The Ceviche was to die for, the best we've ever been served. Couldn't have been more impressed with the food, the ambiance or the service.

..as good as we expected. Lovely setting and pleasant staff. Enjoyable meal, slightly above average local prices. Nothing to be over excited about. We returned to other places but not here.

We dined here a few nights ago and while I agree it’s a great stetting and a very nice little restaurant it does however fall short of a rave reviews for food and service. We arrived before sunset and sat out on the deck with a beautiful view but often waited with empty drinks while waitress seemed oblivious to our... More

And honestly, we go for the ambiance more than for the meal. But La Kaleta was so enjoyable on both counts that we broke our "never twice at the same place" rule and came back two nights in a row. Over the two nights we enjoyed several nice bottles of Chilean wine and discovered the relatively new Carmenere variety. We... More

This is by far the best restaurant you can find on Easter Island! We reserved a table next to the sea, the atmosphere and location is unforgettable. The service was very quick, attentive and polite. The food as such was just amazing - very delicious. We were a group of 7 people and had different plates ranging from fish over... More
