"Ahhhh..." That's what you'll say at the end of your meal at Kono's. The restaurant decor is simple because the star is the view. You can take in a relaxing sunset view through the large glass doors if you choose to dine inside. While you can eat outside, we preferred not to battle the Kihei breeze. Casual attire is fine and the atmosphere is definitely laid back. No rushing here. That doesn't mean service is not great - it just means they move at your pace. Our server Valerie (who confessed she was brand new) was wonderful. We totally enjoyed her attentiveness and sincere effort to do everything just right..and on top of that, she was fun! We dined early so we could take advantage of their appetizer specials and Kamaaina dinner discount. Shichimi Ahi, Calamari & Chicken Wings were great. The lamb entree and the pork chop entree were each cooked perfectly and the portions extremely generous. As we preferred not to have the accompanying potatoes, the chef was accommodating by adding extra vegetables. We were impressed by the lightly sauteed bok choy, asparagus, broccolini AND spinach - wow! Their dessert menu is pretty basic though well priced. Manager Calvin checked in during our meal and the hostess was pleasant on our way in and out. Overall, an excellent meal in a totally relaxing setting. Though it was our first visit, it won't be our last.
