We were cruising around the North Shore, and all got hungry, so we started looking for someplace to eat. What a find Luibueno's was! The food was lovely, the wait staff graciously ignored our scruffy, just-off-the-beach appearance and the cocktails were yummy. So glad we...More

We had been in Oahu for a few days and had several meals, but I was still looking for a really good meal. My hubs liked them all, but I did not. Anyway, I am a Mexican food fiend and was ready for some Mexican...More

Four of us lunched here, and shared dishes. It was very hard to choose, as the menu is comprehensive and we watched amazing looking food being delivered to other tables as we waited to order. We started with classic margaritas, followed by a rich guacamole...More
