“Great atmosphere and setting...”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I love a restaurant that has a unique setting and this restaurant definitely meets that criteria with its location up against the Koʻolau Mountains. It is surrounded by the Haiku Gardens and giant Banyan Trees--great place for a walk before or after dinner. The restaurant has a great open air Hawaiian feel and good food. We have been several times and always enjoy our meal.

“Highlight of the vacation!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Among the best meals I've ever had. I had a special Marlin dish that was unforgettable. My wife had a curry fish dish, very good but no comparison to mine. 2 steaks and a filet mignon for the rest of the table, all absolutely great. Wonderful atmosphere and staff... highly recommended!

“What a gorgeous setting!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

I can't think of a lovelier garden setting - it's like a tropical fantasy. We arrived early on a Saturday (after finding the parking lot overflowing Friday night - it's first-come, first-served.) We had before-dinner Mai Tais and Pina Coladas (excellent), while enjoying the open-air setting. We got a prime table right next to the railing, overlooking the garden, pond and Japanese bridge - with tiki torches providing atmosphere. The service was attentive, but not obtrusive. The salad and entrees excellent. I had fresh catch of the day and my husband the pork chops, both ample and with lovely presentation. We were too full for dessert, although they were tempting. We took a post-dinner walk at dusk along the garden path.One of our best dining experiences on the island.

“Beautiful Views and Excellent Food”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This was my family's favorite place to eat while we were stationed in Hawaii. We loved the beautiful views of the waterfall and the lush greenery all around. You dine in a covered, open area so that while you enjoy fresh seafood or delicious landlubber grinds you are treated to a tropical Hawaiian setting.

The crab legs were the best I have ever had!

“Perfect Wedding venue!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We had our wedding reception here. Coordinators Robyn and Tamara were very pleasant to work with and accommodating. The venue was beautiful and well organized. The food tasted great, large portions and there were options suitable for everyone. Service was prompt and courteous. I would highly recommend having your wedding here because they can take care of everything (depending on your budget) so no stress!
