“Three tries to remedy under-cooked shrimp - all failed.”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Funny, but our best friends/traveling companions own several restaurants in Southern California, one a famous seafood restaurant, so it is tough to convince them that an improperly cooked shrimp is right. My wife's broiled shrimp were served in a translucent state, almost raw. We asked them to be re-done once. They came back the same way. We tried again, no luck this time either. The cook then sent a message via the server that this type of shrimp never turns pink when cooked, whatever that means. The server never offered a replacement dish nor a refund. She totally ignored the problem. Poor cook, poor server and a manager that didn't care enough to come over to the table to see if he/she could help. Funny, we have been going to that restaurant for 25 years, every time we visited Kauai. We probably will never go back.

“Just Wonderful”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

We met cousins there last week for their first anniversary. The wait staff could not have been more accommodating in terms of helping us surprise the table with a bottle of champagne and providing very attentive service throughout the meal. We sat next to a large open window with unobstructed views of the beach and sunset. The food was really great, especially the fist specials that night. It was one of the best meals we had the whole trip and reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back.

“HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

We will never visit this establishment or recommend that anyone go here. We were treated as if we were bothering the staff and they had better things to be doing. The hostess was rude and the waitress was more concerned with other things. After waiting at our table for quite some time and going over the menu we decided to leave. Nothing on the menu was worth staying and being ignored and treated as poorly as we were. As we were leaving the waitress decided it was time to come by but it was too late. We simply explained that we would go find a restaurant that our business was wanted/appreciated. The waitress made it a point to make one final remark as we left. She said there were some less expensive restaurants elsewhere on the island.
