We had the special sushi roll and spicy shrimp fried rice. Both were delicious! Food came very fast with great service. Loved the atmosphere and live music too.

Such a great atmosphere. Great change in pace because it's not a formal place. The service was excellent. This was our second time, and the wait staff is always great. Both times they joked around with my family. The sushi is great, so were all the dishes we've ever gotten. If I remember correctly, we got a chocolate cake...awesome. My... More

We drove to Waimea from the resort area for dinner. We are so glad we did! My husband had a delicious, tender steak, that he really enjoyed. I had the shrimp wok. The waitress suggested that I get the 1/2 wok and I'm so grateful that she did. It was plenty and very good. We had a table next to... More

OK I have to admit that we were not let done by any of the restaurants we ate in while in Hawaii (good luck or just good research?!) and this is another little gem. Worth the 25 min drive from our hotel even if we left a warm balmy evening behind only to step out in a wet and chilly... More

One of our all time favorite restaurants in Kamuela/Waimea. We live in town and go all the time. The food is fresh, always wonderful service! I suggest making reservations for dinner as Red Water fills up quickly. The fish and sushi specials are to die for!

We had dinner in Red Water Cafe and managed to get a table for 2 the day we arrived in Waimea. They offer a varied menu with some additional daily specials that were explained by the waiter in a mouth-watering way. The atmosphere was pubstyle and pleasant. They offer wines by the glass and bottle and we had an excellent... More

Despite the very casual exterior, this restaurant serves very high end meals with great ingredients and interesting preparations. We had Ono and Lamb Shank - both outstanding and with wonderful sides. Portions are generous. 1 shared Caesar Salad, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, 3 drinks: $120
