This restaurant served up great food. I had a steak that was cooked to perfection on a bed of Risoto, I also had a Pisco Sour which was well made. This restaurant also provides the setting for a Polynesian Dance show.

On our last night on Easter Island we decided to try this restaurant for dinner. We started with pisco sours - which blew us away! They were the best that we had had on our trip. Given the number of pisco sours we had in...More

A cozy restaurant with good food and good wines. It has typical dance shows but we did not watch it. Dishes well presented and tasty. Good wine list. Like everything on Easter Island, it's a bit overpriced.

This restaurant is on the Main Street. We went on a non-show night and had amazing gnocchi (local purple potato) and fish of the day. I am vegetarian and they easily prepared the gnocchi without meat. Also the free chips and salsa at the start...More

Incredible meal, unexpectedly creative for such a small island. Appetizer was hummus with marinated/pickled vegetables, main was gnocchi with shredded wagyu beef in a cheesy foam cream - a sort of new wave shepherd's pie. Should have had dessert, but I was stuffed. Reasonable prices...More
