A fun little cafe/diner type of restaurant with a good vibe. Quality food valued right. We had breakfast here several times. The service was good and even with a pretty good crowd, not too noisy or obnoxious.

We were looking for an easy and casual place for lunch, and we spotted the very attractive Island Palms right on the main road through Kapa'a. We entered and waited at the vesitbule, from which we could see at least five vacant tables. No hostess, etc. was in sight, and we waited for about five minutes, at the end of... More

We are breakfast here. Not terrible but also not wonderful. Tasted like something I could make myself. My husbands gravy had a werid taste to it. Service was friendly, price was average. But when you are on vacation you want something that is great not average.

We went there on a Friday night and the place was empty. The calamari was 10 over-cooked pieces in tasteless tempura, which was followed by tasteless mixed tempura with old vegetables. My husband ordered the catch of the day - mahi mahi - that came covered in a white sauce that was heavily spiced with basil or some other herb... More

The restaurant is very lovely, exceptional service. However our food was well below what we expected. My friend had the baby back ribs. They were well cooked, but bland and the side dish of veggies and white rice was well...boring. I ordered the Hawaiian stew. It had plenty of slow cooked beef, but the veggies that were advertised as local?... More

The food here is amazing, made with great care, is very clean and health conscious. In a word, "delicious". My family and I ate there twice during our 5 day stay on the island. Our waitress, Vicki, couldn't have been more pleasant and expedient and we all felt that feeling of Aloha, so talked about in the islands. This is... More

We have only had breakfast there, so I can't comment on lunch or dinner. But our breakfasts were pretty darned good. We ate there twice and each time had really good food and the service was friendly. The second time we were at kind of a between time and were offered either breakfast or lunch. No other customers were there... More

I cannot comment about breakfast as my wife and I only had dinner there several months ago. We are residents and will never go back. Sorry, I am not a negative person and typically would not offer a review less than three stars. As seniors we can honestly say that this was the worst dining experience in our lives. We... More

I'm glad I didn't see some of these reviews before we went on our trip! We had breakfast here, and were very pleased-one of the best of our trip. The staff was friendly, coffee good, and our food was wonderful. We had french toast w/ macadamia nuts and coconut syrup, and an omelet that was very good (and plentiful with... More
