Four of us visited this restaurant for dinner. Because of the size, reservations are a must! The room is small with dark walls. We were greeted promptly and seated in a corner which kept us out of traffic. The table was neatly set with white linens but not fussy. The bread was warm and flavorful. We all shared an order of the most delectable mussels we have ever had. They were fresh and clean with a savory broth of light buttery cream. (This was the best part of the meal.) My husband had the Hawaiian bouillabaisse which consisted of 4 scallops, 4 shrimp, and a nice piece of a Pacific snapper. The broth was not tomato-based but rather on Chinese vegetables and not as tasty as you would have thought with the fish that was used. The broth needed more reduction. I had the rabbit which was tender and in a light gravy. The side dishes of vegetables and orzo were nothing special. Our friends had the filet mignon and lobster pasta. The filet was larger than usual. Both seemed to enjoy their meals without comment. For dessert we split a profiterole and berry cobbler which were very good. We also shared one bottle of an excellent fume blanc. The bill with tip and tax was $250. Not an inexpensive place! For Kona, this is a great restaurant but if you have been to other French restaurants, it deserves an average rating. However, we will definitely return for the mussels, bread and wine.
