..as good as we expected. Lovely setting and pleasant staff. Enjoyable meal, slightly above average local prices. Nothing to be over excited about. We returned to other places but not here.

We dined here a few nights ago and while I agree it’s a great stetting and a very nice little restaurant it does however fall short of a rave reviews for food and service. We arrived before sunset and sat out on the deck with a beautiful view but often waited with empty drinks while waitress seemed oblivious to our attempts to attract her attention.
With all the great reviews from TA I was really looking forward to the food: The ceviche was okay but not as fresh as we had hoped. The best of all the meals our table ordered was the prawn curry.
Its shame as this could be a fantastic restaurant with a little more management

And honestly, we go for the ambiance more than for the meal. But La Kaleta was so enjoyable on both counts that we broke our "never twice at the same place" rule and came back two nights in a row.

Over the two nights we enjoyed several nice bottles of Chilean wine and discovered the relatively new Carmenere variety. We also had at least 2 starters and 4 mains, not one of which was disappointing. (Unfortunately we were there a month ago and I don't often keep detailed notes on exactly what we ordered.)

Staff was pleasant, knowledgeable and competent and the kitchen was prompt. Not one service problem.

This is by far the best restaurant you can find on Easter Island!

We reserved a table next to the sea, the atmosphere and location is unforgettable.

The service was very quick, attentive and polite.

The food as such was just amazing - very delicious. We were a group of 7 people and had different plates ranging from fish over past and risotto to beef and spare ribs - every single plate was tasty and worth the money.

We absolutely recommend this restaurant for anybody who wants to enjoy a great lunch / dinner and seeks very good value for the money you pay!

Visted la kaleta twice during our stay. Sunset views are spectacular. Food is of a very high standard as is the service. Best restaurant we visited while on Rapa Nui. For tables with best sea views reservations are required, but well worth it.
