Our evening did not get off to a great start - when we arrived our table wasn't ready, and we were invited to have a drink at the bar while we waited. We would have been very happy to do this except there was nowhere to sit until another party vacated their seats, and then after we approached the bar... More

The hostess was very sweet and got us in almost right away despite our reservation being for the next night. The drinks and apps were yummy. Our waiter seemed less than thrilled to be there. The view of the gardens and ocean was lovely! Dinner was good too. Creme brulee was awesome.

We ate in this restaurant for 7 nights on our 8 night stay on Kauai. The reason we didn't eat the other night is they close on Mondays. The meals here are absolutely excellent and the wine list is not only good but reasonably priced also. The menu changes every 4 days, not necessarily the fish or meats, but the... More

Make sure you have a reservation on the weekends. Nice outdoor seating area. Dining prices on Kauai have really trended higher over the past few yrs w/ the increase of higher end resorts and homes being built there, which makes this place a good deal eating out. Very polite and helpful staff.

We went here last night per recommendation and we were so glad that we did! Dinner was delicious from the start. Don't miss the calamari, it looks totally different than calamari back home. I don't even like fish and I like this calamari. The lobster bisque is amazing also. As well as the Caesar salad and macadamia nut chicken. Every... More

The boyfriend and I drove here from our resort in Princeville for dinner. It was great! We started with cocktails, the sweet potato ravioli and calamari. I loved the ravioli, I would have it as an entree if it was offered. Must try the lobster bisque, delicious! I had the Ono as my entree and the boyfriend had the mixed... More

How this restaurant got so much praise. Directly out of the "Love Boat" era, pastel colours, bored staff, the food was, at best, barely ok. It is quite simply unacceptable now days that fish can be that over cooked, salads drowned in dressing and a menu that seems to come right out of the '70s. There is better, some times... More

Make a reservation! Came on Sunday night and there was a wait. They have cool little sofas and chairs to sit in while we waited. We ordered drinks while waited. Very good Old fashion with honey. We were quickly sat to our table and we ordered the Lobster wontons- so good! And my husband got the poke nachos wish he... More

We were 3 couples on vacation in Kauai and made the reservation to eat here based on the previous good reviews - I totally agree with those who enjoyed this restaurant as we all did as well. The service is friendly and attentive, the food and presentation is well done, and the choices excellent. The ribs as an appetizer were... More
