We came here once for early dinner. We had the chicken and pork spring rolls for appetizers and they were both scrumptous. For the main entree, we had the rib eye steak and the fresh catch of the day, which was ahi with crusted macadamia. Both dishes were absolutely great and the presentation was impressive. We ordered the Mai Tais... More

We got married the week that Hurricane Iselle was predicted to make contact with the Islands, so we had to be flexible in our plans and move some of our reservations to different times/days. That said, we ended up dining at the Bistro after being married on Anini Beach. We loved the ambience, the service and the food. I am... More

Really welcoming staff. I really like the vibe of the place. It didn't seem too touristy, but still tourists were definitely welcome. The apps were great, they were a little smaller than I would have liked. Definitely go with the Pork spring rolls. My wife ordered the lamp lollipops off of the app part of the menu as her entree...

We visited here ten years ago and loved it so of course we had to come back. The ambience, service and food is great. Love the vibe, wine list and the filet. We will be back next trip. Hopefully it doesn't take another 10 years.

Let me start off by saying that this rating of 5 comes with an asterisk. It's 5 for Kauai. This place does a lot of things right and some things so-so. It's not cheap but everything in Kauai is expensive. Some of the appetizers are very small. The scallop was literally a scallop with some rice and mushrooms drizzled in... More

Cute atmosphere. Good service. Decent prices. Try the coconut porter beer - enjoyed it! Food was OK. The appy (smoked salmon dip) was not great. The bacon-wrapped scallops were very good. Large, but only two of them. The crab cakes were over cooked (almost burned breaded coating) & didn't taste of crab. Although it was on their list of small... More

We were very pleased to find this restaurant after a visit to the light house. Located at the Kong Lung Market Center in the sleepy neighborhood of Kilauea. A relaxed, open air, plantation style setting. Very friendly and efficient service. I ordered the Pork Spring Rolls for a lighter lunch. You get two larger sized Spring rolls with a crispy,... More

Being on the north shore you are some what limited to really nice restaurants unless you go to the St. Regis, the Westin or bar acuda. We found this jewel and was beyond impressed. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was nicely done. The pork spring rolls are amazing. There were 4 people in our party and all were... More

They treated us so good. My brother makes his dried fruit in the restaurant kitchen "Uncle Mikey Dried Hawaiian Fruit - no weird stuff added" so maybe that is why we were treated so special. But, we have been there on other trips without all the family and were still treated very well. The food is very good. Try the... More
