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:... More

We wandered in by accident and could not have been more pleased; our waiter was a gem. Dining is up one flight with great views of the sunset (and a rainbow). Very good food at reasonable prices, very well presented, with attentive but unobtrusive service. Highly recommended

In 2017, I visited the restaurant Kuki Varua at least five times for dinner. It is centrally located across the street from the new soccer field. The ambiance was pleasant, the friendly staff speak English. They also have an upstairs terrace. I can recommend the Pisco Passion Fruit as an aperitif. The first time, I opted for the local fish...

We had walked through Hanga ROA on a hot and humid day. When we felt like some lunch and to quench the thirst. The beer was icy, and the local brew tasted great. We had a lobster and seafood casserole, it was fantastic! Can only recommend this place.

We shared a lovely meal, excellent wine and dreamy dessert. Unfortunately the waiter explained that we could not have coffee, because ' the coffee machine is kaput!'

I've been living in Chile for about 2 years. And this is so far the best services I've been given. People who can anticipate what you need. This is just awesome. Apart of that the food was also amazing. We were nine and everybody was happy with their food. Price for all of that? Average of 15k CLP per person... More

My partner and I happen to stumble upon this place while in Easter Island. We went in without any big expectations, but were nicely surprised. The service was better than what you would expect on the island. We ordered ceviche and it was the best we've ever had. The portion was enormous, the fish was fresh and the flavor was... More
