We thought we would check this out, since we didn't know anything about the area, and since in was in the Hotel, we could get an early start. We ordered off the menu, and were very pleased.

Ate snacks here several times and drank here lots :) Especially when sitting around the pool or late night drinks. Hawaiian music playing added to the beautiful Hawaiian experience. All staff polite and good service, food very tasty but a little over priced.

Great outdoor bar with food, next to the pool so no beach view. They have a decent selection of beers on tap and wines by the glass, but the cocktail list is what kept us coming back. The food (bar snacks and dinner options) are tasty, well cooked and very large portions. Staff are friendly and attentive.

The Outrigger Reef's Kani Ka Pila Grille is a great place to have a casual meal and listen to the Hawaiian music that they have every night. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner hear and all were excellent value. The service is prompt and efficient.

The Happy Hour Menu is small but excellent. We ordered three plates and two would have been enough for two. The burger sliders were good and the nacho plate was even better. The mini chicken salad playe was wonderful The staff was terrific and the service was prompt.

Our server was Debbie. She was our server last year also. She is more like a friend. The food and drinks were great. They are very generous with the food and on some occasions we shared one meal. Eating outside under an unbrella watching the waterfall was perfect.

Our server was very attentive. The burgers were great along with the fries and onion rings. The only thing that would have been better is if they had a view over looking the ocean. They are rather tucked away behind the pool

Perfect breakfast size with the Pancakes and eggs and bacon and great value for the price. Lunch was also great but after the first lunch we did share as the meals are generous in size to much to one person

We enjoyed the meals that we had here - 2 breakfasts, several snacks and 2 dinners. Service was good and food was excellent quality. The breakfast special was a great deal.
