Pretty Decent -- Not a bad place to eat

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

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.
