Food and service were excellent but was a bit expensive even for the level of food and service. If you're staying in the hotel, it is worth paying the premium to have a great meal without going out

Nice sophisticated setting and the Maître'D was most accommodating. Great drinks and dinner menu and superb cocktails if one fancies a snifter before dinner. Accommodates gluten free. Unfortunately my wife hated the started and they offered to replace but decided against it and they didn't charge. Food overall was excellent and it is well worth a gist but not cheap.... More

No atmosphere. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at $75 a bottle. Mushroom soup like it came out of a tin. Chicken that was uninspiring. That said the carparcio of tuna and the Ono was good but not excellent. If you want to spend a lot of money just to say you've eaten their then perhaps you have more money........................go to Merrimans... More

Very creative menu! Food is very tasty and ingredients are fresh. Service was great. Not pretentious. I had the sweet onion soup with saffron - very yummy but completely filled me up. The mani with black rice was great too but I was stuffed! My partner had lobster ravioli and was also amazing!

From start to finish...ambience was seductive, servers were professional yet fun and interactive and the food...worth every dollar you spend. Be prepared to be wowed. Our evening was memorable and worth every penny. Book ahead and ask for a table by the window. ...Open and further enjoy the ocean breezes.

My husband and I ate a few meals here while staying at the koa kea hotel. The breakfast exceeded my expectations. The scrambled eggs were literally the best I have ever had. The snacks served at the pool bar come from the red salt kitchen. This was our lunch one day and again everything we ordered was delicious. The highlight... More

The breakfast is really good, the best in the island, the dinner is really good too, gourmet food, but pricy for the portions. Definitely worth it.

The food was incredible, one of the best meals we have enjoyed over a four werk holiday across the states. Not sure why we could only get a table at 6:30 as it wasnt full. Our server was a little boring and didnt seem to be well informed of the menu. Coming from Australia the fish is very different so... More
