We dined here one evening during our stay on Easter Island and had one of the best fish dishes ever. The views of the sunset over the ocean were stunning. Tataku Vave translates as "count the waves". Not to be missed.

amazing views, local music playing in the background, delicious appetisers (free) and a great menu. Mainly known for its fish, it has a wider selection if you prefer something else. Great place.
