“Beautiful view and excellent empanadas”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This is not a fancy eating establishment, but the view of the bay from the outdoor deck is magnificent. The owner was most accommodating when he told us beer was not served. The empanadas were the BEST.

“A bit cramped, a bit ho-hum”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Haka Honu has a terrace, but when we were there it was crowded, not just in the sense of having a lot of people present but in the sense of having tables just that bit too close together. It has a sea view, but it would have a better one if it weren't for the building across the road. At dusk the setting sun shines right into your face unless you ask the waiter to stand strategically when taking your order.

Menu mostly seafood; not bad, but we ate better elsewhere on the island.

“They know ceviche!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

They serve the best ceviche on the island... ...and I have had it at five other restaurants. I had the one with the coconut milk and rice, and it was mouth-wateringly delicious. Service was nice too, and the location by the sea-side added a nice touch.

“Superb”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Service, food and location, not to mention the best Pisco Sours in Chile! Great value, we appreciated the advice on portion sizes of starters ( huge) and really good quality from staters to deserts. We ate there twice and would go back tomorrow (i wish!)
