We stopped in here after horseback riding in Waipio Valley and really enjoyed the food. Very
upscale and tasty. The waiter was really helpful and funny and made the experience a lot
nicer. We thought the area was a bit snobby and some of the clientele were obviously well to do locals. A touch on the pricey side but a good experience overall. Sort of a San Francisco feel.

We are local to Waimea and enjoy Red Water Cafe as often as we can.
Try the fuji roll! Its $20 of pure deliciousness. My man usually orders the 1/2 rack. The meat falls of the bone and the rate of $20 like the fuji roll is a good deal for Hawaii priced foods. The service has always been good to great and they often have live music, which is always a pleasure, after all, this is HAWAII!
See you at the Red Water!

our server amanda was amazing and steered us in the right direction. she recommended the thai ceasar salad to start with bloody marys. this was the best round of appetisers possible. Entreea and sushi were great! Redwater purchases much of their fish off local fisherman. this means its 1-2 days fresher than most restaurants that get fish from vendors. this stop is a must to round out your big island experience!!!

Nice, tidy little restaurant, with SUPER sushi (try the Fuji Roll!) And you just HAVE TO HAVE the basil shrimp fried rice...to die for!
They have steak, oriental style soups (YUM!) - great service and a really great, varied menu!! Excellent!

Excellent local food. Great service and smokey jazz added to ambience on a Friday night. Our only low points were lack of beer on tap and desert...miss the cheese cake. Don't miss the ceviche!
