“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Our family of 4 stopped in for breakfast. Nice location with a great view of the bay. Decent service with the exception of our coffee, first cup was great, but the second cup took half an hour to come and when it did come around it was cold. 2 of us had the eggs, one pancakes and another an omelet. Decent food, good value. Our server was very friendly and efficient except for the coffee.

“Overrated food with a view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

First, plan to wait for a seat- 30-60 minutes seemed standard, but at least they give you a buzzer, so you can wander a little. Check out the world class mounted marlin in the hotel across the street if you're into fish. Hope that you get one of the tables on the rail, for the ocean/ tiki torch view. Wait another hour (yes, it's "Hawaiian" time) for the food, which will be just OK. Oddly, our waitress would swoop in with a full glass of soda or iced tea and replace the glass which was still 3/4 full, so at least you won't get dehydrated while you wait. Burgers are large (you could easily split), the mashed potatoes are served "stuffed" in a bowl with bacon, green onion on top, and the macadamia crusted mahi-mahi was the best of the bunch.

“Excellent coconut shrimp!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

This place has a fantastic view from its second floor location overlooking the bay and harbour. The coconut shrimp and it's accompanying pineapple relish is to die for and the breaded Ono fish is amazing.

“Good view, Nice menu, pleasant and efficient service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We were looking for a good breakfast before boarding an early plane. They were open by 7:30 AM and the people working there were attentive and pleasant - even at that time of day! By the time we left most of the tables were filled. My banana mac-nut pancakes were good. Others at the table had home fried potatoes, bacon, bagel and cream cheese, and an omelette with fresh avocado. Everyone was satisfied. Even the coffee was good.
