Went for dinner on August 16th on the recommendation of the concierge at the Westin. The drive over to hanelei was beautiful and the the most memorable part of the evening. The restaurant is located in a time share resort and when we arrived at 6 pm it was mostly empty except for a few young families, with the children... More

The ride to this place is gorgeous, but the real surprise is the menu and the selection of fresh fish familiar and exotic delivered literally directly from the boat!The Mediterrenean flavors and ingredients were creatively melded with the fresh and local produce and the daily catch. Service was fine and the wine specials were as good as any! Aloha all... More

Lovely view of surf. Superb service, knowledgeable and capable, a skill set sadly becoming rarer with the years. Lots of parking. Food delivered promptly, good wine list. Only con is by no means a complaint, but the food is not as good as billed. It's very good and well worth the money, but the MG is touted locally as outstanding... More

We went here for the Tuesday night luau during our recent stay in Haena. Had read excellent reviews of the restaurant, and mostly positive reviews of their luau night. It's an expensive evening, but there's not much else in the way of luaus on the North Shore, so we thought we'd give it a try. To be fair, we had... More

One of my doctors who has a second home on the North Shore recommended this place. He did not steer us wrong. We had the mixed olives as an appetizer and I had the Falafal wrap and we asked for crispy fries...they were perfect. They were not crowded and it is away from the hustle and bustle that can be...

If you lime your hummus runny you can really chase after theirs. The food was ok. Prices steep. Surface ok. My wife liked her steak kabobs, i thought they were ok. The setting/atmosphere was elegant but all in all i would pass next time

1st of all they claim your price range on here is $20-$34, we got one of their lower priced items and it was $36.95! We had 12 people in our party and half of us only wanted something 'lite' as we had a very late lunch. They charged us double for soda's (2 bills, we had none, they charged us... More

We had the falafel wrap and a delicious kale salad with goad cheese. For dessert, we ate and loved the coconut baklava! So good... and with a view of the ocean :-) The service was friendly and gracious. If it were closer to our hotel, I would have eaten there again...
