Good food, high prices, right in the action

The food was good, although typically tourist overpriced as you'd expect from their front and center Alii Drive across from the wharf setting. Service was friendly and good, nice menu choices, fresh fish.

Enjoyable meal with dessert overlooking the water. Food was enjoyable, wait staff pleasant. Refreshing after a long day of shopping along the streets of Kona. Lovely view of the swimmers, boats and the dock. Pleasant breeze from the water.

Just arrived in Kona and had breakfast here. Had a Crab, Avocado and Cheese omelette. Great size and lots of crab! Coffee was great but to be expected as we are in the land of the best coffee.

On street restaurant in the "restaurant strip" in downtown Kona with open air to street and harbor across the street. Very comfortable and good vacation feel. Service slightly leisurely on a not very busy Sunday. Nicely competent fish and chips and fish tacos, neither the best we have ever had but far from the worst and well priced for a... More

Our very favorite Kona Restaurant. More kinds of seafood than anywhere else in town. Even Northwest Sandabs stuffed with shrimp. Great sauces/ The very best wait staff in town. Right across from the downtown pier on Ali'i Drive. You will be cheating yourself if you miss this one.

Sat right by the window. The view of the bay was spectacular. Had the sesame encrusted Hebi, which was the catch of the day. The fish was tender and flavorful. The calamari appetizer was great as well. Service was friendly and attentive. Definitely will be back!

This place is awesome. They have a great $10-15 breakfast. Lovely drink menu. Great dinner. The only thing that was a bit hard was the whole leaf caesar salad. Not a fan. But they are right on the water and if you can reserve yourself a window seat it is a great view!
