“Cute place ... decent food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Nice place for a sandwich. We ate there twice this week and it was good both times. Not great ... but good.

“Food ok, prices higher than the rest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Our first restaurant on the island. They have decent food, but are more expensive than the rest in the area.

View is ok, service normal.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The fish store attached is good and has quality food but the dolphin was overpriced and the food was average at best. With the amazing local produce and access to fresh fish they should be far better than they are.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Recently had a meal there on a trip to Kauai. Drinks and sushi at the bar were great but when we sat and ordered fish it was basically inedible and no one in our party finished their meal. Stick to the sushi if you go there. It is worth going for the sushi but the entrees were over cooked and very disappointing.
