Food is good but not inexpensive. It sits on a sand dun above the beach and is a great place to eat outside when the weather is nice. They have a good selection on the menu and a good bar.

My wife and I were staying on site and had read the hit and miss reviews but decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. When we entered the restaurant, there were three female staff at the desk and we felt like we were hindering whatever they were doing. Despite having booked in advance, it seemed like there was...

My husband and I love to sit on the patio with our dog. This is our favorite place to go to have a beer and a bite to eat in the afternoons around sunset. This is a dog friendly restaurant (in the outdoor patio). The staff is very friendly. The bar menu is not too fancy. (I think they've gone... More

This restaurant was probably the worst experience I've had in years of eating out. They did not have olive oil, hot tea, vegetables instead of mashed potato, and the service was a joke. Please don't go!!!

This restaurant has always been hit or miss. Come on a Tuesday and order the same dish as on Saturday, it will be different. Same with the sushi bar, same item always different. Come with friends to enjoy some drinks and you will have a good time, depending on the service.

Ate here with teen daughter and we really liked it. Nice Hawaiian ambiance and good menu with nice variety. We had their teriyaki Stir fry me with shrimp, her with steak. Huge portion and really good. Mai tai was awesome and great service.

We are not from the area, so asked a local for a good place to eat. They recommended Kula Ranch Steakhouse. Said the food was good, but the service was slow. We had a difficult time finding the place as there was a sign on the main road, but none to direct you off the road to the restaurant. It... More

At Sanctuary Hotel, had salmon and fish tacos, slow to get food, but it was very good. Walk the beach before or after. Drive up the hill past hotel check in to park, it's marked.

We ate at the bar and had the room service. Not impressed. The bartender was friendly but the food was just ok.

We have just enjoyed a lovely meal at Kula. We are staying at the adjoining Sanctuary Beach Resort. Great Happy Hour drinks and snacks. We stayed for dinner, sashimi, sushi, ribs and asparagus. All divine as was the tiramisu to finish. We have met the new management who have this place ticking over very well. Service was friendly and efficient.... More
