Gorgeous views from the outdoor bar but otherwise nothing spectacular. The chicken sandwich was awful tasted like a bunch of chewy fat. I would not go back. Expensive too.

Very tasty wine! Also calamari and nutella cheese cake!!! We had pre paid menu, and it didn`t include fried potatoes. When i ask the waiter about it, he explained i can`t get it. But 5 min later brought me a plate of fries for free! i was very surprised and very happy :) great service absolutely!

We ate lunch here 2 yrs ago and it was great. Last night we had a party of 4 and all 4 entries were bad. The Mahi mahi was so tiny and over cooked I sent it back. $34. I live in Hawaii and have had fish at dozens of restaurants. This was the smallest portion I have ever seen!... More

This restaurant has both the casual island atmosphere as well as the elegant dining. Happy hours deals good on the budget. Dinner entrees and appetizers are excellent, presentation and cooking is very high quality. Thoroughly enjoyed my Cilantro Macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi entrée; hubby loved his lobster salad (it's more lobster than salad) and shrimp appetizer. Happy hour drinks kinda... More

We have been coming here for the amazing Sunday Champagne brunch for several years. Alas, the hotel is closing July 1st and will be demolished to make way for luxurious condos for the ultra rich folks. The food, wait staff and ambiance are all top notch. We feel like family every time we eat here and will truly miss the... More

The expense of the food is the only criticism of this restaurant. We ate here a few times, and had drinks another. Every dish we tried was well prepared and tasty. When I had a pork and noodle dish, the noodles were homemade and excellent. Sher had crab cakes and liked them. The vegetable sides were grilled, diverse, and served... More

This was a very good meal. I greatly enjoyed my steak here. The bread was not very good however. Tasted much like the stuff out of the store. Still a good, albeit, expensive meal.

The Classic Three Cheese Macaroni Au Gratin was one of the best things we tried we also had the macadamia nut + Cilantro Crusted Mahi Mahi over red quinoa with asparagus which had amazing flavors. The Mahi Mahi fish tacos, & Hawaiian Pizza, and last we had grilled shrimp with Pineapple relish. Great food great restaurant!

We went here for dinner one night and the service was great. Unfortunately, the food was only so-so. The lobster was overcooked and difficult to eat. However, the purple sweet potatoes were to die for. We came back almost everyday for the happy hour. Half price drinks and snacks with a beautiful ocean view. This was the highlight of the... More
