We ordered some drinks & food here on our stay at the Mariott. Nothing special, just your typical poolside drinks & foods at resort prices.

First time eating here! Family enjoyed it. Great burgers no matter which one you get and you can order it your way. Very reasonable priced for what you get. Go upstairs for a beach view while you eat!

this is such a great place to have lunch, a cocktail, watch tv, it's right at the pool at the Marriott resort on Kalapaki Beach and you will be sure to make new friends here.

Food was good. Not the best fish tacos but sandwiches and wraps were good. Also had a delicious quinoa salad with chicken.

We both need to eat mild foods and staff worked with us to provide non spicy but tasty food. We ate there several times
