We went for Happy Hour. Sitting at this lovely, open to the beach, restaurant is pure heaven. My hubby ordered the Cinese BBQ ribs that he very kindly shared with me and our friends. We all four agreed they were five star delicious. Our friend, Ron ordered the Luau Quesadilla. It was also wonderful, fresh and full of flavor. My... More

We met some friends staying at this resort for late breakfast....WOW! Fantastic. And they serve breakfast late for time troubled travelers. Others at our table had some of the more traditional island lunch items and they loved them. Cassie was our server/bartender...what a ray of sunshine...and there taking care of any needs. We spent the day around the pool/beach catching... More

Early evening brings out a bar crowd, but try to get a booth for dinner facing the windows to watch the glorious sunset. Had the whole fish, perfectly prepared. M'lady had a salad featuring Kula greens which she pronounced superior. Now back to that bar crowd. The parking got backed up. Seems everyone wanted to leave at the same time

We were surprised by the few negative reactions to this place, what is there to dislike? Some really annoyed reviews which we found so surprising. Here is a neutral review - great lookout, lovely sushi and fab Happy Hour prices (1/2 price), good basic house wines, great service. What's not to like? We had lovely service and will return. So...

There for happy hour. Server: Alicia Bill: $144 for 4 ppl To call our server perfunctory would be a compliment. How about lazy, uninvolved, poorly trained and un-engaging. This was by all accounts the worst service I've had in years surrounded by some very good food and otherwise reasonable support staff whom dropped off some dishes. Table maintenance is not... More

Met with friends who were in Maui the same time as us and had a wonderful visit over appys and drinks. Food was good and half price as were the drinks. Nice views. Certainly a place to visit.

Perfect place for my 50th birthday. We started the evening toasting with Macadamia Nut Chi Chi's (Hawaii's answer to the Mexican Pina Colada), tropical and delicious cocktails. My husband and I both ordered fish, him the Fish Trio (3 different kinds of fish/mini entrees on one plate) and I had the Troll of the Day: excellent flavor and presentation on... More
