Great food, lovely setting

We went here for our last night in Hawaii. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Kona in an outdoor garden setting. The food and service were great. Highly recommended.

We were lucky to walk in on Valentine's Day. We never thought we'd get in at 8:00 pm, but I suppose people eat earlier on the Island. This was fortunate for us b/c it was a memorable meal. The server was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Couldn't have been any better. The food was also excellent. That may have been the... More

We had lunch here and it was delicious, well presented and reasonably priced.The garden setting, with running water in a pond full of koi fish, made for a nice atmosphere. The only drawback is the road right beside the gardens can get a little noisy and you can't get away from it. Apparently the dinner menu is different and we... More

Great dinner and service in a garden setting. Fresh fish (we ordered the swordfish and the mahi) was prepared perfectly. Love this place and visit every time we visit the Big Island.

You don't want to miss this wonderful off the beaten path restaurant. My sister, brother-in-law, husband and I went for dinner there for valentine's day. I had the Big Island Short Rib which was wonderful, my husband had the catch of the day and we were both VERY pleased with what we ordered. The atmosphere is great and so was... More

We went for dinner on our final night on the Big Island. Wish we had discovered this café earlier! The meal was fantastic in a gorgeous garden setting. The appetisers were terrific and the brisket was incredible. Melted in your mouth. We would have liked to try out the coffee shop next door and also spend some time touring the... More

A friend of ours who grew up in the area recommended we travel to this quaint village during our trip to the Big Island. we didn't know what to expect when we arrived but were quickly pleased with the open air, farm to table concept of this low-key restaurant. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of sparkling wine while we people... More

The cafe, and the coffee shop attached (that came first) is an always visit when I'm on the Big Island. I always loved the coffee and pastries at the cafe before they had the full restaurant. You can even sometimes catch a local selling their wares, like fresh veggies, avocados or eggs! The restaurant part of the whole ensemble is... More

The food here is really good! Quality and presentation was awesome. The restaurant itself is very clean and pretty, like eating in a pristine jungle. Service is also quite fast and friendly. This is a great place to get lunch when exploring Holualoa or nearby.

Based on other reviews we went for dinner our first night on the Big Island and loved, loved, loved the food and the ambiance. Food was top notch prepared with all island grown products and the presentation was spectacular. The Mahi Mahi was so moist and the Vegetable Lasagna was divine. Portions are large; we both had a second meal... More
