Enjoyed a casual dinner here. Shared a Mac nut crusted mahi-mahi with my hubby. It was more than enough food to share. Enjoyed the Kauai Tai too.

Had lunch and just wanted alcohol to drink. This place makes excellent drinks, I can't remember his name, but he made a mean Mai Tai and another fruity concoction. The food smelled good though.

I had the flash seared ahi for a pupu and a burger for lunch. The fish was perfectly cooked. My partner had the tacos. The meal was outstanding, probably one of the best meals we had in Kauai.
