The restaurant’s open-air design offers stunning, sweeping ocean views while the 30 foot waterfall plunges into a koi pond below that meanders through the tables.

Duke's has the most beautiful views, it's hard to go wrong w/this place. We had a good meal, at a decent price. We enjoyed the beach view so much, after lunch we went back to the car, got our beach bag, and hung out for an hour or so....so beautiful....Milo was our bartender and he was really nice, and gave us some helpful info. about the island....even if you don't eat, it's worth checking out!

This place was recommended to us as we were staying nearby. We opted for the downstairs area where it was more casual. We were suddenly in full relaxation mode..... green lawns, clean sand, gentle waves, waving palm trees and mountains to the sides. It wasn't long before we were sipping gin and tonics and eating magnificent crab wontons, among other tempting tasters. Although we visited other eateries in the area, we eventually drifted back to this casual place to watch the world go by.

Our family of four enjoyed the relaxing island vibe downstairs. (more expensive, formal, upstairs) Everybody loved their dinner- fish taco's and the cashew chicken stir fry were especially yummy, but we wouldn't have cared if it was just average, as the atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing, and the service fantastic. Very reasonably priced too- Don't forget the hula pie!

My son took me to dinner for my 60th birthday. Had a corner table on the outside deck with a beautiful view. Waiter was incredibly attentive and since we had enjoyed a delicious meal, we returned for birthday dessert, Hula Pie, a few days later. Of course, I had to buy a plate to bring home that says Hula Pie on it! We ate there three times and it was the highlight of our dining, of which we tried many places. You can't beat their salad bar, which is a meal in itself. Everyone we told tried it and raved as we did. Can't wait to return this Christmas...a few more times.

Great food, great price, great service. We had fish tacos and cashew chicken in the restaurant downstairs. The fish tacos are worth coming back for and for those who don't eat fish, cashew chicken with stir fry vegetables was delicious. The view was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable. We will come back.
