We didn't eat here but we have a great visit.
We snorkeled at the near-by beach, sea turtles abound.
They were so nice for letting us park there and use the shower, we came in for drinks.
beautiful open-air bar, friendly staff and fabulous drinks...don't remember what they were called but they were yummy.

Our moment of "zen"? Our waiter/bartender told us how to get to the best beach we saw on the whole trip...located in a gated community (who'd think they let us in?), well kept, pristine and sparkling. The best of our snorkling all week!

When on the big island you owe it to yourself to go here at sunset!
More on the great food in a minute...;)
Now, for your FREE amazing sunset show, follow directions below:
Walk past the hostess desk and around to the beach side of the building, all the wicker furniture on the beach is up for grabs. Take your seat, waitress soon appears. Order Hawaiian drink of choice, take in sunset majesty. Most nights they have local Hawaiian musician. It's quite nice, don't forget your camera.
Let friendly waitress know you'd like to have dinner, can she help you with that.
Go "inside" (whole restaurant is open to the ocean!) when you are called.
Varied menu in restaurant, but you can't go wrong with local fresh fish special of the day.
After dinner:
"A" bay beach (nickname for amazingly long named bay) is right next door, perfect time at night take your significant other over for a short stroll to sit on the (now) unoccupied lounge chairs, breathe in the stars and sounds of the ocean. Sublime if you let it in.
During the day, with its close proximity to "A" bay, easy option for lunch.
Ok, I haven't really talked about the food yet, so here goes. In researching this review I found that my mouth actually began to water remembering:
-Maui Onion Rings
-Standing Ahi Nachos
-Macadamia encrusted fresh catch
And lest I forget, the Mai Tai is top notch!
One day my wife and I were enjoying another sunset here, and had the pleasure of watching two weddings on an adjacent garden area, was just great! We always left happy and satisfied with our experience, I think you will too!

We would usually end our day of sunbathing at this restaurant. It is a beautiful location to watch the turtles sunbathe on the beach and of course the amazing sunset. At times we were still in our beach gear and that was not an issue. Lots of people would come for dinner and enjoy the sunset. The entertainment made this place special too. It was easy to relax here; nice casual environment.

this beach restaurant is very friendly and accomadating. our waitress Catelin was nice, but when we walked off leaving a small wallet in the sofa cushions, she took it to management to have it documented and kept safe till we as owner returned . she was so honest as there was no identification. We were impressed enough to also experience dinner too . Very happy with that too. Thanks Loraine
