This restaurant is down by the harbour and has the most wonderful location looking over the ocean. The food is excellent - we had the freshest seafood. The restaurant is very popular - so get there early to get a table outside. Graet place to sit and watch the sun go down over the ocean with a good glass of... More

This is not a fancy place. But they do serve some very fine fish very well - and can do posh lobster to order in advance. Portions are huge, especially ceviche, so i'd miss out the starters unless you're starving. Good choice of fish, shellfish etc Drinks reasonably prices- beers, wines, soft drinks. It's in a lovely setting on a... More

We were picked up by the restaurant "cab" and taken to an place a little out of town on waters edge of a cliff just as the sun was setting and as we had our Pisco Sours, the local drink, the sun sank into one of the most gorgeous sites of colors spread wide over the water I've seen in... More

My wife & I had lunch here. It's a bit out of the way on the far side of the tiny marina. Very simple and largely outdoors though covered from sun seating. The view of the crashing waves is great. Food was good & fresh. Ceviche bit chunkier and less spicy than what we're accustomed to in the Philippines but... More

This is a cash only, seafood restaurant, which has ton of good reviews, not sure why. We had a group of 4 people, ordered 4 different things, and nobody was happy about their dish. The food was nothing spectacular compared to other places. It took 1.5 hrs to get the food to the table after we ordered it. (where they... More

Good place to eat, we had dinner with a friend, can't go wrong with the fish of the day, good piscos sours and fantastic view. A great thing that happened to us while having dinner was that the evening plane approached and flew by righ over our heads, defenitively a high light of dinner

The food at Tataku Vave is very good - tasty and fresh. Service declined during the evening when the restaurant was in full swing - waited 45 minutes for our simple desserts to be served. Nevertheless, our dining experience was a positive one as we watched the sunset over Hanga Piku over pre-dinner drinks

Not so easy to find when tou listen to the other indications... Easy if you know that it is the last restaurant at the far end of the road, after the port... Excellent view for sunset but take a hat or a cap as there is no protection... And even at 7-8 pm sun is hot there... Excellent tuna carpaccio,... More
