Well, to be honest the dishes seem closer to Cuban food than Polinesian. Still the quality of the food was very good and the service was very nice. If you are eating, you can get a seat near the window with a nice view. When...More

When I came to the restaurant the air aconditioning was broke. Also the menu is very short and the food quality was poor.
