There is absolutely no consistency in this restaurant. Besides the fact that there is no consistency in the food from one night to the next they allow cats under the table. They encourage feeding feral cats and it is absolutely disgusting....
I would not recommend this restaurant to anybody.

I am a animal lover but feral cats are not good on the islands and promote disease.

It’s too bad they don’t put their foot down and stop feeding cats and have better food for customers.

Such a great restaurant did not expect it to be as good as it was. We had the catch of the day which was amazing and so fresh, with just the right amount of side dishes. Try the fish and chips tarter sauce was to die for. Great kids menu as well .

Had ahi sashimi, Poipu and spyder roll. All delicious but between screaming kids, blenders at the bar and just overall chaos, it was hard to relax.
