“Charming, Delightful and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

A treasure that is often missed. Have eaten here twice and will be going back again before leaving the island. An easy walk from town and well worth the effort, plus you can walk off your meal back to your accommodations.
Carlos will be your server/chef and if you wish share dinner conversation in Spanish, English or French. He offers wonderful island meals from sea or land. He uses all locally available fish, meat and vegetables. (Tuna was fabulous and T-Bone very hearty)
Don't be put off thinking that Carlos servers Chinese food, what he serves is truly a delightful meal.
Hard to use the cost per person ($$) because everything is casual dining but costly.

“Great surprise in Rappa Nui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

This great little restaurant was a surprise for us in Rappa Nui. After several days of eating empanadas and grilled fish, we discovered a fine cuisine, with thai and european tastes, mingled with rich herbs and perfect preparation.
The host, coming from Europe and with a great welcoming smile and discussion introduced us to some of his creations, to our delight

“great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

The food was amazing, served by a very welcoming and attented guest. We really enjoyed the atmosphere too,, relaxed and essential, with very nice music as background. On top of this, it' s quite off the main road and you don't feel trapped in a turistic place.

“By far the best place to eat on Easter Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013

My wife and I took a chance and ate here on our first night on Easter Island. It is small and off the main street, and we didn't quite know what to expect. Our host was friendly and welcoming and laid out what was on offer, as well as suggesting wines to match our food...ah, the food! Brilliant flavours, perfectly cooked seafood, the best Pad Thai my wife has ever had. The wine suggestions were spot on, matching the food so well in that way that lifts both the food and wine to new, deeper flavours.

We loved BonBon so much we booked again for our final night on the island. Sometimes you have a great experience, and when you try it again it is never as good. BonBon is an exception to that rule. On our return we were treated to some off menu selections of pork and beef, both reared on the island. Fantastic again. What flavours! What cooking! The kind of cooking that has utmost respect for the quality and origin of the ingredients. Again the wine selection by our host was the perfect match for our food.

As my title of this review says, by far the best restaurant on the island. When I remember Easter Island I think of 2 things, the Moai and Bon Bon Chinois.
