Good but average food, lovely views

I really only rated this place Very Good because it was right next to our hotel, the Hanalei Colony Resort, and because we saw the most beautiful rainbow there and got an amazing picture with it. Otherwise, it was mostly average. Expensive, the food is good but boring. The views are lovely. The... read more

My wife and I chose to dine here on the last evening of our stay on Kauai since we wanted a unique place with great views and a laid-back, relaxed ambience. From reading reviews on Open Table's website, we selected this place. We were thrilled with our experience here on Thursday, 15 Jan 2015, and we highly recommend dining here.... More

I've tried most of the menu, and it's all good. I especially love their seafood tower and the coconut baklava. There is music most nights, sometimes traditional Hawaiian and sometimes more modern, but it's always a good accompaniment.

We went here on our first night in Kauai since we stayed in the North Shore. When we first walked in, they had a musician playing the ukelele so we had high hopes for this restaurant! We quickly found out that there really wasn't much else to this place. We ordered 2 glasses of red wine and when we drank... More

I've only ever eaten here for lunch, so this review is for the lunchtime. Spectacular views. Pleasant atmosphere. Food is fresh and flavorful. I wish the portions were a bit larger, but I have a ravenous appetite and I'm always wishing for that. Servers are welcoming and attentive. I recommend this spot to all of my friends, family, and visiting... More

We were glad to have stumbled upon this restaurant west of Hanalei. We were starving and thought there wouldn't be anymore choices on this stretch of road. I had the gyro and husband had a hamburger. Gyro was fresh and the meat was good. No feta, but it was fine without it. Husband loved his hamburger and fries. This was... More

Try and sit at the windows as the view of the ocean is spectacular.. Mohito's are the best! Prefer eating there at lunch.

Food establishments are sparse this far out but the Mediterranean has a charming quality all its own. The proprietor and staff are most hospitable and live music or other entertainment is offered many nights. Off their small but varied wine list, you can't go wrong with the spice-laden Chateau Musar, an uncommon Lebanese offering from the proprietor's homeland. Several of... More

We had lunch and loved the location. We were told of the sold out luau by staff and felt lucky to have gotten a last minute seat. What we found was a low end buffet, tons of large family groups, and a weak floor show. Not exactly a good choice for a couple.

He and I had the gyro. My order with salad costs $3 more. Definitely not worth it! Fries that came with his gyro were okay, not great. But the gyro themselves were good. Nice presentation. Third person in our party had the Greek salad --- big bowl of greens with olives, pale tomatoes & cheese. Location is great. Service is... More
