Had a table right next to the water...but then again, we all did! Great service and superb food. Worth a visit. Can be a good place for a special occasion or a group celebration.

This must be one of the best restaurants on Kauai for a romantic dinner. It is an open-air restaurant built over a lagoon complete with fish, bird life, and a waterfall. Tables are spaced comfortably apart so you have your privacy. Food and service are excellent.

Well worth the little extra money. The food was exceptional and so was the service. This restaurant sits on a Tidepool with the fish swimming next to your table. A very relaxing atmosphere and as I said the food was great. Would not have a problem returning to this restaurant. All people working seemed to really enjoy what they are doing.

Beautiful setting, although not an ocean view. We got here when they opened and had a table overlooking the tidepool below. Our server had been there for years and was excellent, being very helpful in making selections without being pushy. Our meal was very good and then we took a walk through the grounds after dinner. Prices are expensive here, though.

4 of us had dinner here last nite and it was the best. Had their opa and their filet and they were fantastic. Pear salad was great too. The atmosphere was beautiful and if you are lucky enough to get Les as your waiter, you'll have a fun nite!

Ps.... Don't forget to feed the koi fish some of your rolls!
