This place was amazing!! Location is dreamy, surrounded by the mountains and lush green vegetation. Food is all organic and local and so tasty! After the meal, you can take a walk to a beautiful waterfall and garden. Jump rope in the water! You must go eat there!!

I have enjoyed food by the Common Ground in Australia so was keen to check out the Hawaiian version, particularly as so much restaurant food in the US is quite unhealthy (although to be fair, this isn't the case in Kauai).

Very happy we have this place a try. It was newly opened and they were training employees but that was no issue. The food was fresh and delicious and the grounds were pristine. Loved it!

We enjoyed the fish sandwich and the kale salad, which were both fantastically fresh and well prepared. It was well worth the drive to eat here and to take a stroll across the beautiful grounds.

Have eaten here in past years and it was quite good. Went for brunch today, Saturday, and despite it being listed on its website they do not serve brunch on Saturday. This was fine so ordered lunch. Fish sandwich served on a hamburger bun, sweet potato fires are actually taro fries and were small burnt pieces, and the fish is... More

We chose this wonderful restaurant because we love fresh, locally-sourced cuisine with interesting menus. We were not disappointed with the menu or the food. It was terrific! I have lots of food intolerances so it can be challenging to find suitable options. Not here! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. However, we struggled to find a safe choice for my son... More
