We read these nice reviews and decided that even though it is the most expensive show on the island we will book it-especially because they advertise themselves as only they do that underground cooking. So, that cooking is just for the show, they have a few sausages in the pit you are not eating that food. They will teach you... More

this restaurant offers a superficial approach to easter island culture for tourists. despite the owners are native, they do not try to do more than what any other restaurant with show managed by non natives would do. the food was ok: a buffet with fish and chicken cooked as the ntives do, partly underground and other average disches. the show...

We enjoyed the food and the dancers. This looked like a family owned and run place, definitely cozier than bigger salons. Would recommend.

We went to this place to show to our teens some local dances and we took the package offered by a travel agency (transfer, show and dinner). The bus pick up was on schedule but once we arrived at the place, we had to wait for a long time since the same bus had to look for more guests…. Some... More

We spent an enjoyable evening at the dinner show at Te- Rai. It’s better to have dinner for the full experience. Hotel transfer was included. Food was buffet style and was delicious. There’s not much to do at night on the island and the dinner show was entertaining.

We went to this dinner and show on the advice of our tour guide. We were looking for a place with Hangi food, and apparently this is the only place on the island that does it. They also have a great dance show that tells the story of Rapa Nui. The welcoming was great. Our faces were painted, and island... More

My mom and I ended up having some extra time on Easter Island, so we decided to book this dinner and show. We had expected it to be very touristy and cheesy, but it wasn't like that at all. A shuttle picked us up and brought us to the restaurant, which also happened to be right next to the home... More

My husband and I did the dinner and show. We almost didn't do the dinner because he's extremely allergic to tree nuts and peanuts and food is serve as a buffet. I was able to speak with them directly and they were very kind to accommodate his allergy. They don't really use any nuts in the food but they did... More
