Brilliant place for and evening meal. On the expensive side but well worth it. We went twice and each time it was exceptional. Don't go in the afternoon, maybe it is a different chef but the menu is different and not as good. Can whole heartedly recommend the calamari.

The daily homemade pasta is light with great texture making it perfect for a meal on a warm day. The menu was full of options but I'm a picky eater so I built my own pasta dish which they happily prepared.

On a previous visit, their menu was a bit limited for items other than sushi. Now their menu has many more options. My sushi was very good and others liked their non-sushi meals. Service was also good. This is now a good option for groups that want some sushi but also other meal options.

First of all the wait staff here is incredible! Our waitress, Torian, took the time to describe each dish in detail and even let us try one of the sauces before ordering. The hand made pasta and sushi here is to to die for. The view of the ocean is the icing on the cake! Pete, the owner, treated us... More

I understand that dinner is where it's at at Koi and we only went for lunch. The service was fantastic but the food was just okay and they have a relatively limited menu.
