Reviewed September 24, 2012

Ask when you arrive to get a place (only 80 places)
The show is great and the dinner is well, you can repeat the plate and the salads are buffete tipe, they go to your hotel to carry you and then carry back when the Show finish

“A great evening”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

The evening started with aperitifs, followed by face painting in the traditional style, and then taking the food we would eat for dinner out of the 'oven' in the ground. We then enjoyed dinner and drinks, followed by great dancing, with a number of stories. Highly recommended.

Dinner & a show. The owner's of this establishment really care and want everyone to enjoy and have a good time. It includes everything: hotel transfers, dance lesson, buffett, wine, and a great show where they really work. Highly recommended for a wonderful night out on Easter Island.

“Must-go place for your trip on Easter Island!”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

It was my first time coming to the island and thanks for all the reviewers on this site, I've chosen the dinner package at Te Ra'ai.
The package includes a pre-dinner show introducing the ancient way of cooking, the main buffet dinner with special event live music celebration (Anniversary, birthday, etc), then followed by the main after-dinner show, which is amazing!
For all of these, the price is just 30+ USD pp.
BTW, you MUST make reservation in advance!
