A friend and I spent 10 days on Easter Island and we ate almost everyday at Manuia Restaurant. The food here is great, exquisite and so well presented. The owner is a great person, Mirta is her name, and she call fill you in on all the happenings on the island. Besides the food, you can also have some drinks... More

We ate at Restaurant Manuia one night during our five- day trip to Rapa Nui. I ordered the seafood risotto. The risotto was perfectly cooked and a welcome change from the Polynesian meals I had been eating for the previous few days. My husband ordered the ceviche, which was very good and a large portion. We both enjoyed pisco sours... More

Stopped here for lunch whilst out sightseeing. We were actually the only customers, so we had the place all to ourselves. The waitress was very friendly, and explained the lunch specials to us. I have the beef steak with rice, and my wife had the tuna and salad. A soda and desert was included with each of our specials. For... More

This is my favorite restaurant on Easter Island, and, since there are not many on the island, my wife and I ate at a lot of them during our stay. The restaurant is up the hill from the city, so it is a little out of the way, and it is kinda hidden by another restaurant. The food is the... More

We stayed for 6 nights on Rapa Nui and ate at the Manuia Restobar 4 times. We came upon this unpretentious little place almost by accident as we didn’t have the energy to walk all the way into town from the Mana Nui Inn after a red-eye flight from Tahiti. The owner and chef, Mirta, made us feel right at... More

Came here for the dinner after reading the review. The fold just simply with salt on fish and fries. There wasn't any skill about cooking at all. The worst part was the owner added 10% tip on top without asking. This is illegal in this country. Their food and service not deserve it. You can find much better food for... More

I've noticed there's a listing for this place and Manuia Gourmet. As far as I can tell they're the same place! Either way, this a fine restaurant. It had been a wet Saturday morning and I was walking from Tahai passed the cemetery when I noticed this rustic looking place. I decided to give it a go. Only a couple... More

This Restaurant was recommended by our tour guide. It is a local family restaurant that has good food. It is located north of the town across from the cemetery, but you can see the ocean and it is in walking distance from the town center. The friendly owner served us both a free welcome drink of a piso sour using... More

We had lunch here and tried a salad, carpaccio and the risotto with seafood and cheese. All were excellent and the prices were great.

We absolutely loved the food here, so much so we ate here three times over the course of five days. Every time we had a disappointing meal elsewhere we would return to Manuia. The owner/waitress/chef extraordinaire was incredible, she made such delicious food. My boyfriend had the ceviche (and said it was the best he had and he ate ceviche... More
