Food was Great, pricey as you would expect. Mix drinks a bit over priced. Try to get in before sunset to see one of the best sunsets in Hawaii. Entertainment was also excellent.

The food was average for a high end hotel restaurant as was the service. The big plus was the ocean front location with a beautiful sunset.

There is not a bad seat in the house! We were at one of the table closest to shore and it was breathtaking. Second only to the food. As we were on our honeymoon, we wanted to have one night out for a good dinner....More
