Came here for dinner, the 2 female staff pretty much ignored me the best they could for a good 5 mins, later on a man who looks like the manager came out and I was finally shown to a table upstairs. Although it faces the...sea supposedly with a nice view, the sun was so strong an glaring it was uncomfortable for the guests sitting upstairs. I ordered a ceviche and a drink, both took forever to arrive. The ceviche tasted alright but unfortunately I had tummy problems that night which I highly suspect was due to that dish. Also quite disturbing was the fact I saw a lot of flies in the bar and kitchen area, this is the only place out of 6 of 7 restaurants that I went to which I noticed this problem. Unfortunately cannot say I had a good dinner here.More

We booked this restaurant prior to leaving the UK. We wanted to secure a window seat to enjoy the spectacular sunset over the Moai at Tahai and we were not disappointed. The menu is extensive, with something for everyone including vegetarians; the cocktails are delicious...too. The restaurant has a lovely ambience and is nicely decorated. The service was excellent and we were able to enjoy a leisurely meal, enjoy the delicious food with an amazing outlook. Please visit if you go to Easter Island.More

This restaurant happened to be located next to our Lodge, but what good fortune, because it was excellent. The restaurant faces west so the sunsets are spectacular to watch from here, but the food is even better.

We had lunch and dinner during our stay across the street. It is beautiful at all times of the day, especially at sunset. There is a 2 level indoor dining with open windows and a downstairs outdoor area for dining as well as a relaxing...drink. Food is great although a little pricier than in town. Would definitely recommend!More

The food was nice with a wide variety of dishes on the menu. The sunset was spectacular over the moai at Tahai and the service was very good. The only problem we encountered were the bugs, which swarmed over us as we ate and eventually...forced us to move tables. It seems harsh marking down the restaurant for this, but I feel they could do more to prevent the bugs from getting in (they weren't overly concerned with keeping the doors closed). Still a worthwhile experience!More

We had numerous dinners, snacks and drinks here during our stay on Rapa Nui. Perfect location and amazing food! One of the best spots on the island with incredible views! A++

This restaurant overlooks the Tahai moai, THE place to be at sunset. We sat outside and enjoyed the view; we enjoyed the food less. The service was inattentive and slow. The food was fine but nothing special. The Ceviche was good but my partner's Pasta...was bland and somewhat dry.More

Service was a bit slow and “in training” but with a positive attitude . Nothing that a good view and decent preparations can’t compensate for

Great sunsets, views, food and staff Moai.... What more could you want? We went for New Years Eve. It was my husbands birthday so I wanted to pick something special. It was perfect. The bacon wrapped steak and risotto was sublime. Desert was also excellent....Not to be missed. I don't normally take pictures of my food but this was noteworthy.More

The place is fairly difficult to find so follow the signs to get there. The owner has real charm and loves his restaurant. The view is fabulous. There was a real attempt to make the food (large portions by the way) in a stylish manner,...the problem was that none of it tasted up to the level of the presentation.More
