The restaurant is well positioned, beautifull view, ocean view, pleasent stuff... Either it was almost end of their working time, and it was crowded, they served us... Also, they served the food very fast. Speaking about the food, it was delicious... and the cocktails -...the best on the island... ⭐️More

A nice place, with a good view to the sea and a simple and good food. This is the right place to go after a day touring around the island, before going to your hotel.

I found Neptune Island on Trip Advisor, on waterfront walking distance from my hotel. I was seated with a beautiful view of waterfront and sunset. We ordered the seafood curry, (as others had raved about it) and were not disappointed! So rich with seafood and...accompanied by perfectly cooked rice, I was unable to finish the meal. The service staff were helpful an engaging. I enjoy hearing about how people are living their lives in the places I visit and the staff here seemed to really enjoy being asked about life here in Easter Island and their travels. As an American with very rusty HS Spanish and our waitress leveraging her English, asking for clarification of certain words from a co-worker, I was almost embarrassed when she apologized for not knowing some of the words in English! I was in her country and she was apologizing to me for not being fluent in my language!!! Also had the opportunity to meet Jose the chef/owner, originally from Cuba. He is very passionate about cooking and has several restaurants. Not only did he prepare a fantastic dinner but made our night more special by allowing us to hear about his journey to this very special place in Easter Island. Highly recommend for the full experience!More

I was a little leery as they boast for being a seafood restaurant but there is something for everyone . My husband had the grilled local fish and I had the fillet mignon. Both were excellent. This was a very enjoyable dining experience.

My wife and I ate here and enjoyed the fresh food and atmosphere. The service was good and the wait staff was friendly. We liked the location and the food. The choices on the island are a bit limited but this is a good one.

RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE TAPATI FESTIVAL LOCATION, HANGA VARE VARE, which was key for me. 7:30pm dinner, then go across the street to the evening Tapati Festival shows (first two weeks in February annually). Make a reservation during that time!

Neptune Island was in my "top 5" list of unmissable restaurants in my recent trip to Rapa Nui Island. Unfortunately though, the waiter was so rude when me and my friend entered the place that I thought we were inadvertently entering a private party. He...was unable to kindly explain why we couldn't occupy the table we chose - I assume that it had something to do with the view to the artistic presentations of Tapati Festival that were going on that night. We picked that one just because it was the only table for two that wasn't occupied. After needing to ask more than twice to have a table and take a look at the menu, we decided to go to the restaurant next door, where we could enjoy great meals, great beers and a much more kind tratment - not to mention the great view to the Festival - which, by the way, wasn't our priority, because our intention was just eat something good before effectively going to see the Tapati presentations across the street. This is the reason why me and my friend couldn't experiment the so-called delicious food of Neptune. While I was really sorry at that moment, now I'm glad I didn't give a penny to a place that doesn't care about good reception. A real shame, specially considering that it isn't a cheap restaurant.More

Four of us had an amazing meal here. Each plate superbly done, each delicious in its own way. Pineapple Chicken was a wonderful flavor and super tender. Tuna with blue-cheese was a surprise high-light, very good. Ceaser salad with shrimp done very well, so easy...to get this wrong, but the shrimp were large, hot, juicy, just right! All this great food matched by friendly attentive service and a waterfront view.More

I came to this restaurant because of the reviews in tripadvisor, and I can confirm that the 2nd place among the restaurants on the island is very well deserved. We came a bit earlier to reserve a table close to the window to be able...to watch the sunset. We started our dinner with a pisco sour which was accompanied by a little entry on the house as standardly done in Chilean restaurants. Then we ordered the local small lobster, the rape rape, and two white wines. It was delicious. We came back the day after to eat the lobster. I was very impressed by the way how they cooked the rape rape that I thought the lobster deserved a try. I was right. We were very happy about it. It was a special day for us because of our first anniversary, and the dinner at this restaurant made it even more special. Before leaving Yazmin gave us a little moai as memory. In the end the staff is very kind and friendly. The dishes are simple and well prepared and presented, always with fresh ingredients. The price asked is honest. I can really recommend this place, and I hope one day we will come back.More

We just had lunch, and the food and service lived up the the many outstanding reviews! The tuna and barracuda (local variety) were wonderful. The view was a bonus! A special mention about our server, Carlos. He was informative, interesting to visit with, and offered...us recommendations as we tried to finalize our decisions, since there were so many appealing options. You won’t be disappointed with the food, and if Carlos is part of the experience it will be all the better!More
