Newly reopened after a Feb '15 fire

It was only open for Tapas style starters and one main entree as they just reopened on Jun 2. We enjoyed about six starters (the Ahi Tuna was great) and one of our group had the special entree. The best part was Tue and Fri are 1/2 price wine bottle prices for much of the list (no Opus One... read more

I feel like they tried, so this review is a little difficult to write, but...My husband and I were directed here by the concierge at the Westin for a date night because of its location on the beach. We put our kids in the kids club for the evening, which is a "big deal" because we go everywhere together as... 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.

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 music is ok. Mostly the place is... More

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.
