Yes, it's pricey but it's so good! Everything is fresh. They always have some interesting choices and the specials are always creative. Now they have a market place with all those "natural" goodies that are way overpriced.

Sustainable gardens furnish excellent greens to the table in a quiet, open, tropical setting. More restaurants and gardens like this would bring better meals and sustainable growing.

Near Princeville on north shore of Kauai. Dined twice last week and enjoyed interesting, fresh, wholesome cuisine. Not cheap but what is on these islands. Cousin living there turned us on to this nice hidden spot. Bravo!

We used to love this place. The service was good, the food was great and the location was amazing. Sometime in the last month this went from a sure thing to a bust when they changed their service from customers being waited on to ordering your food before you seat yourself, paying up front and then waiting for your name to be called out so you could pick up your food which is now served in a box with plastic utensils. From a first class establishment to a zoo like atmosphere of a poorly run cafeteria. To make matters worse, the food quality took a plunge as well though that may have just been my meal for the day which left me feeling ill.

The location is still nice, but our island is nothing if not an all around great location. For the price and hassle I will be taking a pass on this restaurant which until recently was an island favorite. Our entire party left with much the same sentiments, Such a shame...
