Too overpriced for what they offer, 3 drinks 40 bucks before trip, I usually tip 20% but this place only rated 15, 8 diners, hit and miss with some not liking meals " don't recommend their version of gnocchi or paella. And some being disappointed because of lackluster service, mistakes that were avoidable, charging for an extra bread roll, however... More

Wow! I didn't expect to find a world-class French entree at this reliably delicious old-faithful Kailua restaurant. But this evening I ordered the Beef Bourgignon for the first time in many, many visits -- and it floored me! I don't think I could find any better rendition of this classic bistro dish in Toulouse or Lyon or even Paris. The... More

We have been going here for the last 3 years and by the changes in the menu the ownership must have changed hands. The portions were pretty much cut in half and the prices have gone up. the fish tacos had hardly any fish in them. It's too bad because we used to really like the ambiance and the food... More

The wine selection here is quite extensive with over 50 wines to choose from. This place is noted for their steaks, seafood and thin crust pizzas although I can’t comment regarding the pizza because we did not order the pizza. Live music is present every Friday and Saturday, although we did not experience the live music. My family of 4... More

We enjoyed our dinner here, but it is pricey.The food was good, but depending on what you choose it can really add up especially if you are with people who drink a lot.

I am not a fan of pick up bars. I come for the drinks and the food. If a restaurant doesn't have that, I can't give it a good review regardless of how many single regulars insist this is the best place in Kailua to find a date. Because.. that is not why I am there. It is many months... More

This place is open air, has a great bar, and always has talented live music on the weekends. Their appetizer bruschetta is to die for!! So good!! I also really enjoyed the Sangria. However, I have a dairy allergy and do not eat meat, and I have eaten there a few times. Depending on which chef is working that night,... More

We grabbed an early dinner here on the basis of other reviews, but we were disappointed. Portions were small (for what you are paying), Service could have been better - we were never told what the specials were, for example. She had a salad and an appetizer - shrimp with hummus, an odd combination but good. He had salmon with... More

We just happened by this place while on vacation and loved it. Meals were excellent and service was also. Will go back if we come back to islands.
