“Great Food at Reasonable Hawaii Prices”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

The restaurant is located in a resort. The setting was very peaceful and relaxed. The waiter (Jason) was very accommodating and answer my wife's questions about the drink and food menus. She selected the Ono which she loved. I ordered the Pork Marsala which was excellent with tender pork and rich flavor. I had the Likikoi (passion Fruit) tart which was outstanding. My favorite dessert during our 12 day stay. The prices were very reasonable for Hawaii. We paid a lot more for a lot less in most of the other restaurants. Important to note that the service was not rushed as it was in other places we visited. If you get the chance be sure to give this place your consideration.

“Wished we ate here sooner”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Not sure why we never tried this place before tonite. We've been coming to Kauai for ten yrs----even had a place here and are familiar with most the regular eateries.
This is a great restaurant with good, fresh local ingredients in a nice location. It has almost an Italian flare in their menu as the have many wonderful Italian inspired dishes. Braised goat with a homemade fusilli! Wow. Even their surf and turf was fantastic. And deserts! Yum- not many places have the European inspired cheese plates on their desert menu. Wine list needs a little work. However, the great thing is they don't gouge you on their drinks and wine(decent vino mostly under $30/btl). Highly recommend-between 4-5 stars.

“best food on Kauai”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

This was our 7th visit. Everything is local and imaginately presented. Fish and meats are always superb. Salads soups appetizers desserts all are wonderful. Wine list is awesome. Cocktails are great. Reasonably prices with great service and an ocean view in the distance. Love this place.

“Amazing service and fabulous food”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

We were thoroughly impressed from the start. Service was impeccable, with even minor details. Waitress was very knowledgable and attentive. They have an amazing gluten free menu. The only thing is the decor - a little old school - doesn't suit the food. It's true what reviewers say it's one of the best restaurants in Kauai. I highly recommend it.
