The service was appalling and coffee equally as bad. Rude and grumpy staff who for some reason thought we were lucky to have a table at their restaurant.

Fantastic dinner with friends and delightful service. We had the seafood specials accross the board and everyone enjoyed their meals and the view was wonderful that evening.

Went for lunch around 2pm with a large group. Service was great and the location and view were ideal. The menu for brunch was lacking we would have loved some pasta options.

The view is off the charts but the rest needs some tweaking. We were here in 2012 and there is a big difference in the quality. With so many good restaurants on Maui I don't think we'll return next time.More

The setting is topped only by Momma’s Fish House, or Merriman’s in Kappalua, but the service ranged from surly to harried to forgetful. The fresh catch of the day was over cooked and way too salty. The filet was fabulous. We were glad to have...More
