Pretty Decent -- Not a bad place to eat

We chose this restaurant one night as it was walking distance from the Intercontinental Le Moana.

I was a guest at the Hotel Maitai. The Hotel has 2 restaurants one by the beach and another one by the lobby. If this is the one by the lobby then I can say the buffet in morning for breakfast is above average. The same breakfast restaurant has a more formal setting in the evening for dinner, so one...

The menu was varied and it was so hard to pick -- wanted to sample it all. Our waiter anticipated everything and explained how all the entrees were prepared. Lovely evening!

Great location, nice rooms, nice beach with sea kayaks, good service. Less expensive than some of the "fancier" places, but seemed every bit as nice to us.
