Quiet restaurant on slow residential street away from the crowds. OK to park on the street in front. Good cerviche mix, served with plantain chips and toast. Huge portion for one. Nice with a cold beer. Pizza was cooked in an oil barrel drum, and it never got hot enough to toast the crust. Bread used was the flatbread from... More

We were lucky enough to stay at the hotel across the street from this charming little family restaurant. We had dinner there nearing the end of our week on Easter Island and the food was so delicious we regretted not coming sooner! The fish was fresh and the pizza was this crust and wood oven baked. Absolutely delectable!

I was a guest at Mamma Nui Lodge with a group of friends and we decided to visit the restaurant twice. Both times we were not disappointed: delicious food and friendly service. The first time we tried the "parrilla mixta". The portions were really big and we had a lot of meat to share between four people. We also tried... More

This place is great! I came here with my brother, the owner was there taking the order and making sure everything was ok. We asked for an individual pizza and an atun ceviche and before that, they gave us something to try while we were waiting. Both were really really good, specially the ceviche, which is one of the best... More

Directly opposite the Taha Tai hotel (so about 5-10 mins walk from the town centre), the Mamma Nui offers a change from the usual cuisine with an Italian twist on a Rapa Nui menu. The owner took the time to chat to customers and the restaurant had a laid back atmosphere with several interior tables and a covered exterior dining... More

We had dinner at Mamma Nui last week and it was one of the best meals on the island. The drinks were fantastic and the past was phenomenal. Thanks.

The shrimp lasagna, seafood pizza, and ceviche were all amazing. There was great seafood, like many places on the island, but there were dishes with very unique twists (like Italian-inspired ones). The cocktails were pretty good too and the outdoor seating area and patio were lovely. Service was a bit slow, even compared to other places on the island.

And actually, you are! We 'found' this place while exploring the area around our lodging on foot. This looked like a nice place, so we stopped by one evening for dinner. This restaurant is actually located in someone's home. The children of the owners were playing on the floor in front of the TV while we were enjoying our dinner.... More

This restaurant is right opposite the Taha Tai Hotel, which means it isn't among the string of restaurants on the main drag. Worth seeking out though for good fresh food and a cool vibe with a very personal service. You can eat inside or outside on the (covered) deck.
