“Fantastic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We have eatten here in the past and were eagerly looking forward to a repeat visit -- and weren't disappointed! I thoroughly enjoyed the wine pairing menu; 5 course meal with wine for only $40? EXCELLENT! My husband has a dairy intolerance and the kitchen was outstanding in their efforts to accommodate him, just as they were our last visit a couple years ago. Be sure to make a reservation as walk-ins will be disappointed to discover the restaurant is full. Great food, lovely view and outstanding service. Would go back in a heartbeat!

“Make Reservations Early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This is in the hotel next door to the Courtyard in the Kauai Coast Resort. Not cheap, but the food was great and the service was also great. This place (because it is not very big) fills up quickly, so if you want to go, give yourself a couple of days as they are usually full and you probably won't be able to get one for that night. Well worth the money.

“Atmosphere, service, good food, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

This restaurant is on the edge of a lovely garden, with the ocean view further away. The hospitality and high quality service was evident from the moment we arrived. They are famous for fish, which we, probably foolishly, did not order. I had the pork tenderloin and my wife had a roasted chicken. By any objective standards the meals were excellent, but to our taste they were a bit heavy, in the German tradition. The value was astounding, two generous appetizers, two large entrees each of which included a salad, one drink and one glass of wine for $85.

“Expensive dinner but pretty yummy I must say!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We came here knowing it was going to be very pricy... And we were satisfied. We definitely left super full! The food felt healthy and really delicious! I had the macadamia nut chicken and it melted in my mouth!

“underwhelming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

The service was very friendly but a bit uneven - appies came quickly but dishes sat on the table through the main course and one member of our party got all their food at different times than the rest of us. I was really expecting something special so was disappointed. having said that, the food was fine.
