Reviewed 18 May 2014

Heck, you are steps away from the ocean - why eat anything else. Options abound but this place is sure thing if seafood is what you seek.

“Excellent Fish and View!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We had an excellent fish dinner here! The service was a little spotty. But the food was worth it. The view of the water is beautiful. We missed the sunset but could only imagine how amazing it would be from this restaurant.

“Best fish in Hanga Roa”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

As others have already noted this is a very good place to eat and it serves particularly good fish dishes with a variety of interesting sauces.
The service is friendly and prompt, by local standards and if you are on the island for a few nights this is definitely a place that you should try at least once.
A table outside gives one an insight into the passing trade in the town's main street.

“Amazing sauces on sea food”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

My favorite island restaurant because of the amazing sauces on the *very* fresh fish. Be sure to try the 5-pepper sauce...it get's 5 stars! Also, if you're craving veg, instead of rice or salad, get the stir-fried veg... Great! Only frustration is that it seemed to frequently be closed or to open fairly late in the evening for dinner. Other than that, I'd give it 5 stars!
