They were good but decided to concentrate on the farming aspect and after having won a liquor license, closed down without much warning…too bad..good location and a nice respite on a 5 mile walking trail..

This is a great place for lunch. Especially if your Vegan or Vegetarian. I am neither so the menu was very limited for my taste but Carol loved it. Great location on an operating farm so the food was really fresh. I liked the atmosphere and Carol liked the food.

This place is so surreal - tucked away on its own garden which spans several acres, it is surrounded by a lot of lush greenery, has excellent free wifi, and the best gluten-free desserts. The food here is farm-to-table and like everything on the island, is made with lots of TLC (so be patient if it takes a bit to... More

A unique and fun setting amongst the outdoors and gardens. Quality ingredients for the GF to vegetarian to the person who wanted bacon, sure to please everyone. A pricey brunch but worth a visit.

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). The restaurant is deservedly busy. The food is wholesome, full of flavour, exotic ingredients and hearty servings. I had... More

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.
