The restaurant is one of the best options for family dining. It is very popular and gets quite busy. The food is good and there is quite a variety to choose from the menu. It is a bit pricey but that is what we are used to especially during the holiday season. We have had to wait over 15 minutes... More

I booked a reservation for 6 last night for a final dinner with close friends prior to them leaving to return home. We were seated, ordered and we're just sitting our drinks when they brought out our appetizers. One minute later our salads appeared followed by one minute later our main course. It was ridiculous, our table was covered with... More

A busy noisy restaurant and the turnover is fast. We have dined there many times and the food and service has always been good with a spirit of aloha. Dishes are large and we shared the Mahi mahi entree, it was good but I wish there was less butter sauce which hides the taste of the fish and makes the... More

This place is great. The food is some of the best we had on the island. Our server was excellent and very attentive without being annoying. He treated our kids great and went out of his way to treat them as actual customers and not just an annoyance. Drink orders were taken promptly and delivered quickly. The recommendations he made...

The seafood dishes are good. The wine list is barely adequate (more selections and a better pinot noir to accompany the seafood dishes). They need more bartenders to speed up the service.

We were excited to try this place out and were quite disappointed. The server was not your typical wonderful service we've come to expect in Maui. Never really checked on us, food came out at all different times and it was not impressive at all though will give them it was edible just not good. The salad didn't have any... More

It is a French restaurant right next door, great menu, but a bit pricey. It is great for a dress up evening out, celebrating something.

Simply put, you have to try this place. Affordable but fantastic food. You need reservations. We have been to all the restaurants in Kihei, we finish up our vacation on the night before we go home to celebrate a great time and great food!

The food at this restaurant is very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is a little bit noisy, but it's a fun place for groups and families. We all felt this was our best dinner out during our vacation in Maui.

We flew in to maui and this is the first place that came to mind after 6 years. We enjoyed it then and it was just how we remembered. Super friendly staff. We had fish dishes and you cannot go wrong with them and their daily one. I had the Mahi fish and chips it was monstrous. We also ordered... More
