My husband and I tried Cafe Haleiwa's dinner for the first time on Valentine's day and were amazed at the sophistication of their menu. . We both had the soup which was reminiscent of a hot Vichyssoise with truffles, something you would find in a fine dining venue. My monchong fish with light miso sauce was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth,very tasty. My valentine tried the braised short ribs which was less stellar and more like mother's pot roast in flavor. We shared the desert of strawberries and some sort of delicate pastry to dip in dark chocolate fondue, yummy! Service was friendly and attentive, Our wine came from the wine shop next door,all wines priced under $20. No corkage fee,probably the gift/wine store is family-owned. Beer available also.
Only open for dinner Wed. - Sun. Be sure to call for reservations and ask for a table outdoors for maximum rustic ambience. This is our new favorite North Shore restaurant!
