“Really good food with a unique view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Part of the Four Seasons resort this is the pool side restaurant which during the day serves great snacks and lunch but in the evening morphs into an excellent italian restaurant. It also has a unique view of the bay where the spinner dolphins come in to play almost every day, making it a great place to relax with a beer or a Mai Tai.

“Casual dinning option at the Four Seasons”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was a good place to go for dinner or lunch without leaving the Resort. The food was a little above average Italian but so were the prices. There were not a lot of choices for a quick lunch by the pool.

Aloha mjbinkc,
Thanks for taking the time to review your dining experience. Located poolside and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the restaurant is an idyllic location to enjoy beautiful views and as you mentioned a convenient setting. Glad to learn you enjoyed the contemporary Italian cuisine. Our seasonal menus offer a nice variety, between lunch and dinner options. We hope to see you again soon.

Thanks again!

“Great views and delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We stayed at the Four Seasons where this restaurant is located and ate here 2 out of 3 nights because we liked it so much. The specials were particularly good - fresh fish, yummy appetizers. The views are also beautiful and peaceful - very romantic.

“Delicious Italian dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Never would have thought that the beachfront/poolside outdoor restaurant at the hotel would have an Italian theme. However, it was delicious! Had a great pasta that I'd love to find here in the Mainland and the tiki torch lighting and ocean breezes made for a wonderful atmosphere.
