This restaurant served us one of the worst meals I can remember in the last thirty years of visiting the big island. Service was patronizing, food was bland and not fresh. Hard to imagine not having fresh seafood in Hawaii. Many better choices around the...More

The restaurant has a website with the menu. The price for the food is on par with all the other restaurants in Hawaii. They are all pricy.
