Excellent fish, probably one of the very best in Hanga Roa. Been there 2x in 5 days, would return again. The exotic tuna and the chef’s pescado are absolutely recommended! Nice service, reasonable prices, and great fruit juices.

I had my first ceviche here when I arrived on Easter Island and loved it. I have never had so much fish on my plate! Great service too. Allow 15000 pesos per dish.
