I've been going to this restaurant for 40 years!!(before it was Haleiwa Joe's) and just visited again in July 2011. I'm always pleased that the oasis like atmosphere has been retained even with all the development around it. It's a "must" for me to get there'd early enough to walk the gardens before dinner. Food and drinks are always good and the whole experience worth the trip!

We attended a wedding on December 31,2010 and this place is absolutely stunning. It was our first time to Hawaii in general; so we were stunned when we stepped off the plane. Heading into the entrance for this establishment is a series of beautiful wrought-iron pieces the intertwine beautifully with the landscape. The restauarnt is just perfect; the setup was great for a wedding function as well as regular everyday dining. We were seated in an area with an open patio with partial roof cover which overlooked the wedding cereomony site.

The food was to die for!!! I can't even tell you how amazingly fresh and tasty everything was. The function was setup as a buffet and the choices available were great.

Ate here with family (4 adults, 3 kids ages 2-12).
The best thing about this place is the view - gorgeous. We had a table right near the edge, where you can see the gardens and lake below, and mountains above. Would be very romantic place for a date.
It's all outside, but there are plenty of fans to keep the air moving. We had mosquitos biting us while waiting for our table, but no problem once inside.
The wild wahine martini was good, but the Hawaiian version of the margarita was better.
Calamari was light and tasty, the cheese bread we got for the kids was REALLLY good.
I had fresh grilled fish with rum raisins, white rice, green beans/carrots. Was ok. I had not had that fish before and it was just a little too meaty for me. Kids' menu was ok - fried fish, grilled fish, chicken tenders.
Service was OK. Not bad, but not great.
All in all, we thought the food was good, but I think the highlight of this place is definitely the views.

One of the nicest settings on all of Oahu. My friends drive from all different parts of the island to eat here. The food is quite good though not exceptional...but then who cares when you're surrounded by beauty!
