Breathtaking ocean view!

A lovely restaurant to have lunch with an ocean view. I liked the ambiance more than my garlic chicken sandwich. My friends ordered the virgin lava flow drink and loved it.

We had a really nice meal here with a beautiful view, great drinks, and solid food. My son loved the lamb and my husband thought the fish was excellent.

We went for dinner on my daughters birthday, the staff was very nice. The windows are quite small so unless you are right next to the windows you won't see much of the view. A bit of a drive from Princeville. The menu is quite limited and sizes of the dishes are rather small. Overrated in our opinion.

First night on the island, but this restaurant was a real disappointment. A recent fire in the kitchen apparently destroyed its ability to cook anything other than panini's. No excuse for the watered-down drinks, however.

Besides at the St. Regis, you really can't be the views here-- even the drive was gorgeous. The menu has some standard greek fare along with some new twists. The gyro plate was excellent, as was the ahi tuna dish. The service was perfect. The only reason I gave this four stars instead of five was that the menu was... More

We stopped here after driving down to Ke'e beach for happy hour. We were seated ocean front and the view was fantastic. We just had drinks and appetizers but what we got was fantastic. The hostess was super friendly and the table service great. The chef even came out and asked us if everything was going ok. We plan on... More

We stopped in here on a rainy day after a beachside massage at the nearby Hanalei Day Spa. We hit during happy hour and many of the appetizers were half price. We took full advantage and ordered their salad and both types of the hummus and pita bread. We also had a gyro and the entire meal was quite good.... More

We have truly enjoyed the location and the "fresh catch"- cooked Med-Mid-East menu over many year but this time were surprised that the place had recently suffered a serious kitchen fire and has,currently, on offer, a much reduced menu. Service was fine and their weekly wine specials are "top flight" but we would urge the prospective diner to check first... More

We stopped by in the middle of the afternoon and the resto was pretty quiet. We had a really late lunch/early dinner. Great veggie options, the salads were delicious, and everything so fresh. There is a beautiful view to look out onto while dining too, along with that ocean breeze

Ate here for lunch with our 7 and 12 year old. Very small menu but for our palates, some good choices. We found the hummus to be quite good - not soupy like mentioned in other review. It was very garlicy but that suited us just fine. I had a good greek salad, could have maybe been a bit bigger.... More
