We loved our diner at Kotaro. The restaurant is really nice decorated in Japanese style and the food delicious. It felt a little bit like we where in Japan. The owner(s) and the people working in the restaurant are all really nice. Make sure to get your reservation (we didn't but were lucky enough to get a spot).

Dinner at Kotaro was a highlight of our visit to Easter Island. The restaurant is beautifully designed in Japanese style both inside and out. Despite the reports of eccentric rules or rudeness, we were warmly welcomed and graciously served. Everything -- food, wine, beer and service -- was flawless and excellent. Highly recommended.

A "must do" experience on the island! The food is delicious, just trust chefs' recommendations! I had the shrimp in curry sauce and it was amazing!! Take your time and watch how your diner is cooked! Make a reservation in advance and enjoy the night.

It was a total experience to dinner in Kotaro! We loved the place and the food!

We had a reserve for only 1 night but we couldn't resist to book again for the next night!

I am so sad I will not eat in Kotaro again, at least until I will come back to Easter Island ;)

Coming from California, we had lots of Japanese restaurants and all were excellent in culinary skills. In our hometown, this might just considered as food from food court. The food was mediocre, except the fish was very fresh because its caught locally. I guess because there were no good restaurant around here, so its considered #1. A little disappointed because we celebrated my husband's birthday and he was not satisfied with the food and he expected way more. Sushi had too much rice, tempura was not fluffy at all (mainly flour covering). Soup was decent in tasting but no seaweed or tofu in it. I would think twice before coming there and paid the price.
