“Excellent food on Rapa Nui”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We spent a pleasant 3 1/2 days on Rapa Nui. One of the pleasant surprises was this excellent restaurant. Right on the water it is an excellent place to dine. The views are terrific, service prompt and friendly. Food choice was excellent and we really liked the shrimp curry and the octopus carpacio. The Pisco Sours were refreshing. We ate lunch there twice and highly recommend it.

“Fish with pineapple cream sauce, who knew?”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Marc of Green Island Tours, took me here for lunch during our tour of the island. We had a great lunch. We both chose a grilled fish dish, mine with pineapple cream sauce, his with mango cream sauce. We both really enjoyed our lunch. The view and sea side open air seating only enhanced the experience. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

“Best view in town!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

This place just drew us in from the first night in town... The view is amazing, the food is quite good as well. Esteban, the nightly server was quite nice to us, had good english and made the place even more special... The only restaurant on the island we went to more than once, call it our hangout!
