We sought out this place because it was in the Hawaii Revealed book. The service was friendly and fast. The pizza wasn't all that great. Based on the book description we thought we were getting a great "super thin' crust pizza. That wasn't the case. The pizza crust is actually on the doughy side and reminds me of a frozen... More

Found this place by pure chance! We had parked our car and had looked at the posted menu for another restaurant when we spotted PAU in the far corner of the parking area. We were just looking for a reasonably light lunch - nothing fancy - and this place was just perfect! Really nice menu with what looks like updated... More

Not a huge fan of pizza but the combinations they offered (fresh local ingredients) were tempting so I ordered the vegetarian selection with a salad and it was delicious! Staff were very friendly. Low key place, very informal. We got there early and ordered at the front of the restaurant but as it got a little later, table service was... More

My wife and I stopped here on recommendation from staff where we were staying and were not disappointed. The food is fresh and local, which means you're getting salads with very fresh greens and vegetables. The fish is brought in fresh daily and they also do very good pizza. You can do takeout or dine in, and the staff is... More

My husband and I came here based on recommendations in both guide books and on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! It was some of the best pizza we have ever had, period. We shared a pizza, it was a very large pizza for just 2 people, but we were very hungry so we managed to finish it. I would... More

I like this place! It's relatively inexpensive, the staff is always friendly and they offer a decent variety of fresh dishes w/local ingredients. Nuff said.

The salad and pizza were ordered were delicious! The pizza was much bigger than we expected but they let us take some home for leftovers. The staff were great and they were playing really awesome background music! We would go here again if in Waimea.

Went there on a windy, cold night. The place filled up quite quickly. We split a good salad and the Mahi Mahi. The Mahi was cooked ok, but the piece of fish was so small it took four bites and it was done. I heard its pizzas are good but I did not try.

We came here for dinner on a rainy night in Waimea and immediately felt very warm and welcome. The service was great, the pizza's thin, crispy and imaginative and the cost very reasonable. We'd definitely like to return.

We had just finished an activity and were on our way to another. Decided that a take out pizza would be great and Around Me found it for us. The only problem is that it indicated it was in front of us instead of what it really was (behind us). So, after we had already placed our order, we figured... More
