The restaurant showcases a stylish blend of Hawaiian architecture and modern flair - a lively, informal setting where guests are inspired, surprised and delighted by the Hawaii’s beauty and the flavors of the Pacific, through an innovative menu with playful tableside presentation. Cuisine is prepared oven roasted, flame grilled and wok fired, while an extensive wine list, with a special selection of boutique wines is presented via iPad.

Casual, friendly and knowledgeable servers guide guests through a social dining experience not to be forgotten.

This restaurant really has a lot of Wow. Right on the beach at the Four Seasons Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii, this restaurant works hard -- and succeeds -- in bringing the best the Big Island has to offer in fresh food. On a recent visit I had a wonderful butterfish brushed with Miso: it was fantastic. It was beautifully presented and simply melted in one's mouth. My husband had an Asian inspired Ahi which was equally flavorful. The dessert was a decadent chocolate souffle that ended the meal perfectly along with the fantastic Kona coffee. I compliment the sommelier who went out of her way to find us a special wine we wanted. The beach location is one of the best in Hawaii. And I really respect their using mostly local ingredients on their menu items. All this comes at a high price, but worth it for a splurge.
