Good empanadas made to order for takeout. They are large and deep fried, but do not taste or feel oily. This was the only restaurant that we found offered a vegan option.

We had an early dinner one evening and we sat in the patio. Nice and cool, but it did not take long for annoying flies to start buzzing around our table...If there ever is another visit, we'll dine inside. The speciality, of course, is empanadas: there are about 12 fillings to choose from, and there are BIG. We split one carne (meat) empanada, and it was absolutely delicious and the best I ever had. Since I was still a bit hungry, I ordered grilled tuna, expertly done. About another hour later, the place was full, with couples and families. I got to meet the owner, Tia Berta, a very nice old lady, and I got to compliment her on her restaurant, which seemed to please her to no end. Fairly cheap, but very good eats.

Is the cheapest food on the island, very delicious and good size, love the taste even if you have to wait over 15 minutes strongly recommended!

Ordered a tuna and queso empanada - crust puffed up nice and crunchy, but filling was very liquidy, with runny cheese, too many grilled onions, and tuna that tasted a bit fishy. Pommes was good and hot. Busy work shooing away the flies. Maybe just plain cheese would have been better?

I've had great empanadas in other places, and because this was well reviewed I was expecting the same here. We tried the tuna and cheese, the cheese and the vegetable empanadas. They're large, but very greasy and quite plain in flavour. We didn't bother finishing them - there are too many other places on Easter Island selling better food than this.
