Great for lunch

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

Would have been nice if the restaraunt would have kept the lounge open during the remodel. Too late, my accommodations were booked with restaraunt in mind. Booo!

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

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

There are not a lot of restaurant choices in the Princeville/Hanalei area. This one is decent, although not really great. We had the paella for two, and it could have used a little more saffron flavoring and would have been improved by cooking in a traditional paella pan (no socarrat). The dipping sampler include hummus, babaghanoush, and tzatziki, and was... More

by default and despite bad reviews, we thought how bad could ordering Greek appetizers for take out be? Well, trust me...they can be bad! The babaganoush was so garlicky, I burnt out my taste buds for 2 days, hummus was tasteless and the tzitziki was so thinned down, we thought it might have been made w milk! The beef kafir... More
