Go here for a really good sunset dinner. We ate here twice and both times found it delicious. My husband had the poke appetizer and I had the corn chowder. We both had fish entrees. Service was friendly and excellent. It’s expensive but worth it.

A must visit. I tried the lobster tail in miso and the pork ribs. Fabulous service, great wine selection and a view to die for. There were 7 of us and everyone rated this restaurant as fabulous. Get there before sunset so that you can...More

If you want to catch a sunset, then make a reservation for 6 pm for the 7 pm sunset. It is worth it, given that the food is excellent, the service is impeccable, and the live music adds to a lovely Hawaiian evening.

We completely finished our meals here - everything was delicious. Sunset view was the best we experienced on the big island. Even gave us complimentary desserts to celebrate the last night of our honeymoon. Great service and great experience - would definitely go again.

This restaurant is so under rated in my opinion. It consistently has amazing tasting food, great service, and gorgeous views. Try one of their soups as a starter. You won’t be disappointed.

As is usual, the service, the food, and the beverages were outstanding for dinner with a terrific sunset as an added bonus. The restaurant along with the Mauna Lani hotel is closing in September for a $100M 14-month renovation. So don’t miss this wonderful spot...More

Beautiful location but the food was not great. I had the Mahi Mahi special and it was over cooked and the rice was mushy. The lamb dish was terrible. Chewy and gamey. The beat salad was good but nothing to write home about. We were...More

Yes it's fairly laid back as far as dress is concerned. Even shorts are ok but I personally would have dress shorts and top and jacket.
