From start to finish, this was by far our best meal after a week on Maui. Our last night and we decided to try it. Amazing food and service...absolute perfection! We started with Hawaiian Bread that includes a strawberry spread and a goat cheese spread....More

Just eaten here and the octopus was gorgeous as was the lobster fettuccine, however I really wanted a nicely chilled rose wine or even white wine to go with it. All their wines are kept in wine cabinets but the roses and whites are not...More

I expected a great deal more than what was offered at this Ritz Carlton Hotel restaurant. The seafood fettuccine consisted of a couple of scallops, cherry tomatoes and three head on prawns around a cheese-sauced pile of noodles. This wasn't seafood fettuccine. It was scallops...More
