“Nearly Can't Beat the View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

There are a few restaurants on Easter Island with great sea views and excellent sea food. La Kaleta is one of them. It is very relaxing to sit on the verandah, sip on a pisco sour, eat freshly caught fish and watch the sunset. Don't miss La Kaleta but also try some of the others.

The ocean view from the terrace late afternoon/evening is very special. Friendly staff serving great traditional food. The seviche is excellent. Dont miss this place.

“a bit pricey - but good food, great views and excellent pisco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Sitting on the terrace with the ocean view during late afternoon adds a whole new dimension to the experience - it was a perfect ending of a perfect trip to Easter Island.

There seemed to have been a shortage of chicken on Easter Island at the time of my visit - so the only meat available was fish. But no regrets - the tuna steak was enormously big... and enormously good.

A few stray dogs running on the beach must have thought the same - and they came too close, sometimes even stepping on the terrace and begging for food, until the staff chased them away - but this was only a minor annoyance.

I also ordered "cerveza" made locally on the island - which was... well... "interesting"... but then finished the dinner up with a glass of pisco sour - and that was definitely the right choice! I had quite a few of those during my travels across Chile, but this must have been one of the best (perhaps the atmosphere of the place added to this - let's face it, there are only as many ways to make a pisco :-) - still, it was damn good)

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

It is not fine dining, but it you enjoy dinner by the ocean, this is a great location. Service was typical for this place, not too fast, but that was ok.

“Delicious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

It's a very good restaurant, spectacular view to the sea at sunset; sea food is excellent, Ceviche is one of the best of the island, also the natural juices. One of my favorites.
