“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

+ the location is fabolous: direct by the sea
+ good service, always refill your soda
- the salad bar was very small and monotonous
- if you take the salad bar as an appetizer, it would be very expensive..
- steak was not really a steak.. Stringy meat
- poulet brust was sweet (..?!)
- too expensive for that what you get

= depend of what you are looking for: for drinks and appetizer it's a nice restaurant. But I do not recommend it for lunch or dinner.

“Good food, OK service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stopped here for lunch while we were at Kailua Beach. The food was decent and the prices were OK, I did feel like the hostess looked down at us because we were fresh from the beach even though we were properly covered up. It was definitely a 60+ crowd so we didn't necessarily fit it, we were just so hungry and needed something to eat. This hit the spot.

“Overall good food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Unique setting, good food, the calamari steak gets five stars. Worth the stop, some seating a bit crowded. Average rating is due to never getting our drink order, ever, which included one reminder that we had not received the order yet. Would I go back, yep, for the calamari steak.

“great food, service, drinks, desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

this is a very popular restaurant across the street from Kailua Beach. We arrived for an early dinner around 6 pm on a Friday evening. We waited a few minutes to be seated, The have a decent wine list, and a very nice tropical drink list. Their Mai tai is very good, and strong. They surprisingly have no tap beer, only bottles. They have many choices of steaks, some chicken and several fresh fish. I had the sea bass, grilled, my husband had a steak. both were very good. They have a nice salad bar, and good bread. The service was excellent. The desserts consisted of their ice cream pies (really good) cheesecake, and others. they bring them out on a platter so you can choose. my only complaint with this restaurant is the tables are very close together, and it is difficult to even get to the salad bar as everything is so tight. The waiter had to move out of the way for others to be seated while he was telling us about the specials etc for the evening. they could not squeeze another table in there if they tried. overall a very good place to eat.

“Great food, huge servings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We went here one night and ordered beef ribs which were superb and were recommended by our waitress to try the calamari for an entree which she said was one of the specialities on the menu. We were impressed with our meals, and the servings were big! It wasn't a cheap night out, but we enjoyed ourselves and were happy with what we got.
