To my dismay when we went they did not have ceviche, it was supposed to be their signature dish. We had the carne plate instead, good sized portion, excellent chicken. The location is unbeatable for ocean views and sunsets.

Two separate locals recommended Tatuka Vave, so we had to give it a try. The parking lot was full when we pulled in at 2:30 pm. We almost didn’t stay but noticed a table just clearing on the patio that we hurried to. Beautiful setting...More

Ceviche Rapa Nui is fantastic! It’s honestly more like a poke bowl than ceviche but that doesn’t matter. Fresh tuna, very little “filler”, plantain chips, and a really great sauce. I wish I would have gotten one to myself instead of a shared appetizer, it...More

Located above crashing waves near the west end of the airport runway. You probably won’t stumble across it, but you should consider seeking it out. Although primarily a fish restaurant, it has other dishes, even vegetable ceviche. The menu is in both Spanish and English....More

There are many restaurants on Easter Island, but the best one is Tataku Vave. The restaurant is located on a rocky shore of the Pacific Ocean. We sat on the veranda overlooking the Pacific Ocean at sunset. The view was both magnificent and unforgettable. My...More

This is a wonderful place all by itself for a quiet dinner with an awesome view of the ocean. The fish ties for best on the island in my opinion. Ceviche was also good. This is a must eat venue.
