I had lunch - fish, vegetables and rice. Very good. I drank a glass of redwine and a mineralwater. The service was ok. It was not cheap, but prices on the Easter Island are of course higher because of the transportation. I think I will visit the place again.

Nothing wrong here, food is good enough. But the coffee was undrinkable with grains floating in it. If you are going to be a cafe. Get good coffee and maybe a decaf or a tea selection. That being said try their lemonade. Delicious. And the fish steamed in tin foil is really nice. They have a nice salad too.

We stopped at this place to have a drink and rest on a very warm day. The front patio is really nice, so we sat there and enjoyed the nice shade from the tree. We ordered only drinks, so I can comment about the food. They didn't have a great selection, only orange juice, which was average and extremely overpriced.... More

We came here for Christmas dinner after a long search for a restaurant with a vegetarian option. The owner quickly offered a vegetable curry that wasn't even on the menu, and it was delicious! Thank you for great service and accomodating customers' needs!

Stopped in for late evening drink and dessert. Service was good and the drinks and dessert were well worth the stop. The prices are reasonable.

A full breakfast at Café Ra'a is just what you need before you go exploring in Rapanui. Try the Breakfast Tongariki. This will get you going the whole day. Its a bit pricey, but so is everything else in Easter Island as you would expect for such as isolated place. Had breakfast here 4 days out of my 6 days... More

We ended up here after leaving a different restaurant which had been recommended by our hotel as the waiter was drunk & extremely rude to one of the people in our party. It was a refreshing switch as the prices were about the same but what a difference. Our waiter was fluent in both spanish & english so he could... More

Amazing Cappuccino here! The restaurant is at the end of the main road. It has a nice patio seating area. Besides the coffee, we also had some white fish steamed in tin foil with vegetables. It was very tasty and certainly fresh. It was a perfect light afternoon lunch.

This is at the further end of the main street - but worth the extra block of walking. They have a true chef - well prepared and presented items. Outdoor seating with trees for shade. You can get hot sandwiches for approx. $11, which you will find is cheap on Rapa Nui - so that is a nice option.

The chef speaks some English, so it was helpful in ordering. The tuna was moist and the rice was perfect. Great experience.
