Yes, it is VERY pricey but for the experience, worth every penny.

Our group of 11 ( age 80-2) enjoyed lunch here last week. The view is wonderful.

Food and service were excellent. We tried almost every appetizer and they were all delicious. The standouts were the mahi mahi spring rolls and the calamari (not your typical preparation or presentation). The island snapper entree was amazing but we also enjoyed the curried trio, the ono and the lobster. The ono seasoning was great but it was slightly overcooked.

The banana macadamia crisp is outstanding, the signature Black Pearl is overrated in taste (chocolate mousse is chocolate mousse) but the presentation is gorgeous.

Fabulous meal !

We made a reservation for the 31st of March after a tip of a friend. Well that friend will get a great bottle of wine. What a great place with fantastic food and great service. We went with our 2 kids 6 and 8 years old and they said papa this is a really nice restaurant with great food. Some people say it is expensive but for a restaurant at this level with great food and a fantastic view I would argue that. We went back 2 days later and again it was worth every penny. Thanks Mama for 2 unforgettable dinners.

The ambience is great, you may think you are in the South Pacific, the staff is friendly and helpful. The food selection is excellent with great choices of fresh sea food. It is prepared excellently and presented well. After a shared appetizer, the four of us had mahi-mahi, short ribs, the Hawaiian dinner (lua-style), and the duck in mango glaze, plus four drinks, and a shared dessert. Everything memorable. Price tag was about $270 before tips, more than we pay normally for four, but worth the price for a special evening. Reservations are needed.
