We were visiting friends & wanted seafood with a view. Sat upstairs had a great view of the ocean. We ordered the sea bass & spicy ahi. Both were fresh & fabulous. Also ordered spring rolls & spicy endame as appetizers which were also fresh & spicy. Long Island Ice Teas were also very good. Casual & attentive staff

Great Food. Best appetizer made of combo of avocado and brei in a mini wrap. Parchment wrapped salmon unbelievable. Very unusual food dishes. Great view of sunset. Location perfect.

Ki's was a very friendly place. My husband's Thai chicken wrap had a good amount of chicken with a good peanut sauce but rather non-descript filling. My portobello mushroom wrap was good, but nothing special. The restaurant is across the street from the beach, but seating is all on the second floor so there is a good view.

Always have had great meals at Ki's. Breakfast, lunch and dinners have all been outstanding. We like the idea that they use mostly organic and local grown foods. The breakfast specials and dinner specials are always a favorite.

This is a local favorite for breakfast or lunch to watch the surfers while dining. You order downstairs and sit upstairs with walls of glass and panoramic ocean vistas (no elevator or handicap access) to wait for the server to bring your meal. You can sit outside or inside and get your own tea and silverware, so it's pretty casual... More

We ordered some food and drinks and sat on the deck. When we received our drinks (we both ordered bloody mary's NOT spicy). They were super spicy and kind of gross. We were excited about the healthy food choices but not impressed about the taste. We left our food and bloody mary's and went somewhere else to eat.

Healthy food at the expected price, Ki's is across the street from the beach. This is an old family favorite, and I try to hit it up every time I am in town. The food has only gotten better, and pretty much anything you order here will be health conscious. I love the breakfasts and salads, but they make some... More
