The sashimi is absolutely delicious. The tuna with seaweed and different potatoes is quite good though the amount of cream in this dish is rather overwhelming. The portion is also quite large. The tuna steak was good but I tasted better at another place.
The restaurant itself is nice, especially outside. The waiters however are terrible, uninterested and lazy. Just a reminder that the 10% tip the charge on the bill is not mandatory...

The place had inside and outside tables with access from Hanga roa's main street. As in most of easter island the prices are high, slthough in this case the portions were quite acceptable, and a plate would suffice for a couple who wanted a light meal. I tried the tahitian beer which was very good.

It looks very nice from outside and they accept credit cards so we stopped here for a dinner. Stuff is very polite and friendly, but they can forget about some parts of your order such as coffee or a salad or a taxi, but still they are so friendly that it is really ok. Fish of the day was very good, and big glasses of fresh juice made us quite satisfied with our choice. Prices are high but it's a general problem of this island.

Great food, 3 sorts of fresh local fish, nice service, always with a smile. Bit noisy because of the main street location (espcially if you sit outside). Recmmended !
