Ate lunch here while our flight to Chile was delayed. The staff at the restaurant coped admirably with a planeload of passengers descending on them at lunchtime. Delicious food beautifully presented all while sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean. Best airport waiting room I have ever been in. Our travelling companions said they had eaten there the night before and the food was excellent then too.

Across the road from the rugby pitch.

Upstairs gives the best views if there is a rugby game in progress and also of the sunset - go up if possible.

Service excellent. Food is good to v good. There is no wine list but they do have a selection which is more expensive than most but actually v good - we had the Cab Sauvignon.

I would like to say that being back from the coast it’s cheaper but it isn’t. However the view from the first floor is great.

We were here off-season and the upstairs balcony with the ocean view was closed...a disappointment. The food was nonetheless very good as was the service. Seafood is the specialty here but there are other options. The prices are about average for Hanga Roa. Save some room for dessert.

We initially had planned to dine nearby but on checking the menu noticed the selection was broader and the place looked popular. We weren't disappointed and enjoyed the best tuna ceviche we'd had in Chile/Peru! The tasty food, great atmosphere and reasonable prices made us glad we'd stumbled upon this place!

After sitting by the sea watching the waves this is a short step back inland. We liked the look of the place, it was busy and the staff were inviting without being pushy. Shown to a great upstairs table with sunset views and looked after very well from the get go. We both opted for seafood which did not disappoint: the white fish was cooked just right, had good texture and taste. The sea food sauce that came with both dishes was excellent, a properly made broth of delicious sea food. Waiter was charming, wine good, price reasonable. A great place.
