“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We were staying at the Aqua Bamboo and finally had a day to sit around the pool. At 2:05 I decided I was hungry and went to get something to eat at the Lovin Oven after hearing great things. Unfortunately they were just closing (from 2-4) so they could shop for fresh ingredients for dinner. A little disappointed I returned to my chair. Fifteen minutes later the owner delivered a spinach salad because he didn't want me to go hungry. It was very good and spinach salad is one of my favourites. I don't know of any restaurant that would be so customer oriented. We then ordered dinner that evening, pizza and a cheeseburger, and both were outstanding. Another couple earlier in the day were raving about the Panini they had. The prices are reasonable, the food is great (they are starting to grow their own herbs), and the owners were exceptionally friendly and considerate. I would make this restaurant a stop even if I wasn't staying at the Bamboo.

“Superb Italian cuisine in a special location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Hidden quite location with very sympathic service and Italian food as good as in Italy...and who doesn´t want to relax on a pool side just two blocks away from the beach?

“Amazing Find in Pricey Waikiki Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We found this via Trip Advisor. It is hard to find as there is not a lot of advertising for the restaurant (the sign is small). The Hawaiin BBQ pizza here is amazing! In addition, my husband and I loved the secluded atmosphere - it did not feel like we were in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Lastly, we loved that we could bring our own beverage without paying a corkage fee. This place has only been open for a few months - it is truly a hidden gem!

“Pretty & quiet at night.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Candle lit tables in the secluded pool area make night dining very nice, really good pizza, great toasted sandwich/paninis at lunch time all served by the pool (for those early arrivals from Australia!) good breakfast, pancakes, fresh juice & coffee while you wait for your room. Eat there even if your not staying at the Aqua.
