I was excited to see this place was open because of all the good reviews. My husband and I sat at an outside table and got the attention of a waitress. She used our table to rest used items from another table and then left. After a few more minutes, she dropped off our menus. We thought there was some misunderstanding and perused the menus. Several minutes go by and we don't see the waitress. Then she talks to a table that arrived after us and heads straight to the inside bar without looking at us. After sitting there for 20 minutes without being able to ask a single question of the wait staff, we left.

Dropped in here with our guide. Very good. I had the cerviche mixture which was an enormous serve of 3 types of cerviche. The serve was so huge I couldn’t finish it all. I asked for medium spice but it was very mild so I would suggest you ask for spicy. A bit more flavour was needed. Great fruit juices. Reasonable prices for Easter Island. They provided a good vegetarian meal as well. Worth a try. Very clean.

We chose to eat here on our first night in Eater island based on tripadvisor recommendations. Our starter never materialised but we put this down to my poor Spanish. When our main courses, a steak and a prawns pil pil, arrived they looked very nice, however the steak was very tough and there was a big black bug in the salad that came with the prawns. The lady working the restaurant was very polite but overall I would not recommend.

We walked past this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The decor is very ordinary and the price reasonable so we don’t have great expectation this would be excellent decision. Nobody has recommended us about this restaurant.
The tuna raw fish was excellent and the pasta also good and tasty. The serving also very generous. Well done
