“Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

I just love this place. I've been here several times and the location is amazing, the food is fabulous and you can't beat the breathtaking views of the sunset. We brought a big wedding party and the staff, hosts, and managers were welcoming and accommodating. Our server, Adam, made sure our entire party had a GREAT dinner experience. Don't miss this restaurant the next time you are on the Big Island.

“Amazing date night in a beautiful spot!! Food was good, (not great,) but who cares??)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

My wife and I got a nanny at the resort and took off one night for 'date-night.' This place is really nice. We had a lovely evening. Good not great food....but who cares? The location and the relaxing environment would be enough to keep us very happy even with "less than amazing" food. Good service. Nice Maitais. We really enjoyed the coconut shrimp, but the fish of the day was not the most impressive plate of food. We both forgot the name of the fish. Didn't really care to remember. It did not change the romantic ambience of the place. We just loved it. I've never been anywhere else like it. Just a really beautiful setting.

“Loved the beach!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Loved the live music, beach, and atmosphere, but the food was just ok. Maybe we ordered the wrong things? The ribs were ok, but the chicken was raw and the hamburger that replaced the raw chicken was also raw, not rare, raw. The manager was very nice about it and tried to fix it. We didn't tell our waiter that the hamburger was raw, we hated sending back one dish, let alone two. We were there at sunset and loved everything else, just not sold on the ribs, hamburgers, or chicken. Should have ordered the fish tacos?!

“Excellent spot for great food and a nice sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for dinner and it was superb. My wife had fish of the day and I had coconut shrimp. Both meals were excellent and were equalled by the service! Really nice place to relax over dinner and enjoy the Hawaiian sunset right on the beach. What more can you ask for. A little pricey but worth it. Nice way to end our vacation!

“Delicious food, relaxed vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We walked here several times during our stay at the Marriot, mainly to have drinks during the happy hour (3-5p.m.) and then watch the sunset. We had Hugo's Maitais and they were delicious. Once we had dinner there comprising of appetizers (ahi poke and club med plate) and entrees (surfer girl). The food was extremely good and fresh; particularly, the seafood was sublime. I haven't had such a good soup ina long time (the surfer girl)! Portions are not that big unfortunately! Highly recommended for having dinner/drinks on the beach in a relaxed atmosphere.
