“A sleeper....”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

You have to get beyond the entrance and the bar. The dining area has some nice seating with open air access. Great things are happening in this kitchen, especially if you like garlic! We loved the ginger-crusted fish and tried most of the appetizers. All fantastic! Agreed, the Mai Tai's rock!

“Fells like you're eating outdoors”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Great fish specials, have the ginger crust cooking style. Presentation good too. Nice setting inside, open air, but still cozy on a cool night.

“Good fresh fish”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had fresh ahi prepared two different ways so that we could try them both. We enjoyed the ginger crusted one more than the other. We missed the pasta bar that they used to have!

Strong drinks & great atmosphere. Out of the way little town with lots of locals hitting up this spot.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

This place is open and airy and has a stylish simplicity, and delicious food (also great Mai Tais). The Kalua pork rice bowl is to die for; we also came back again and made a meal of a bunch of appetizers, which was terrific, too. Nice little shops around make this a great lunch destination (most likely also very nice for dinner, but we were there after a snorkel tour, then back again for another lunch).
