The freshest tuna you can imagine along with succulent ingredients make for an exceptional dinning experience in Rapanui.

After reading the many good reviews and visiting Kotaro's website, I knew we had to try this restaurant. Reservations were easily made with email. The restaurant is temporarily located in the Hare Boutik hotel restaurant located about a mile from the airport. The dining area has a wonderful open air ambiance. We were greeting by the chef upon our arrival. He then explained the dining options. All of the food is prepared personally by Kotaro and it was excellent. Expect to pay ~40,000 CLP per person - you won't be disappointed.

Tried a number of the dishes (fish, shrimps, chicken) all cooked to perfection. Highly recommended! Currently cooking outside his own restaurant, in a hotel, but sure the new place will be excellent once finished

First of all, Kotaro restaurant is currently being rebuilt and Kotaro is therefore temporary in the location of the "Hotel Boutik" complex. In case you are looking for a hotel restaurant, then you will maybe not find what you are looking for, mainly also as guest is being served after guest with complete menue and it takes a bit long until you get your food. But in case you are looking for a highlevel Japanese kitchen, then this is the best place of the island. We had 5 different plates that the 5 of us shared together (we were 2 adults and 3 teenagers). All dished were great, the 2 fish dishes were extraordinary. We were impressed by Kotaro and will be back again next time.

I was seduced by chef´s blog saying that you will eat the food he would serve, period. It was not true, no as dramatic as I expected. Food was superb, attention individualized. Should I say that it could be better but materials in the Island (specially for a Japanese restaurant) are scarce. I have never tried a chicken like the one we eaten nor the fish, a 10 for shure.
