Went on the recommendation of the reception manager at Jardin Del Sol and wow, what great steak. Not fancy inside but generous spirits and the best steak ever

We visited for a meal while staying at the nearby Waikiki, both my husband and I ordered the veal fillet. Have to say they were the best steaks we have ever had absolutely delicious. The staff and customers are friendly and welcoming.

After spending a whole week of trying average food elsewhere, we found this little gem of a restaurant that does great food and also friendly staff. It is a little overpriced but for the great food they served then I guarantee it's worth it. I recommend half a roast chicken with the mushroom sauce for which you also get generous... More
