“Great garden and mountain views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

Saturday night and very busy but we arrived early and got a great table. They do not take reservations and dinner service starts at 5:30. The bar opens at 4:30 and we put our name on the list first and got what I think was their best table. To see the great view you need some daylight so plan accordingly. Even before the bar opens a casual walk through the gardens is a nice plus.

“The view alone is worth the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

We were referred to this restaurant by a waiter at another restaurant. It was worth the trip. It's a little off the beaten patth (hidden by what looks like a townhouse community) but definitely one of the best in that area of Hawaii. The VIEW IS SPECTACULAR as the open restaurant overlooks the botanical gardens. The service is fantastic as well. The food, particularly the seafood, was among the best that we had on the trip. Excellent coconut shrimp and some really creative ways to serve the seafood. They had a gorgeous wine selection as well. Don't miss if if you are in the Kanoehe/Kailua area!

“Never disappoints!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2011

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!

“Amazing!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

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.
