“Nice atmosphere, but way overpriced.”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stopped for dinner one evening. A guide book said they had very good fish. I thought it was average at best. Nothing too special. We felt it was very over priced.

“Grease ++ and Cold”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I really don't get what people can possibly like about this place. The Calamari was cold. The crab cakes were absolutely awful. I really mean they were awful. Everything was so greasy and the service was not good. If this is the best dinner to be had in Kona, I am never returning to Kona. Don't order anything fried. Negative star!

“Not as good as Last Year”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We had visited here last year and had phenomenal fish, so we were very excited to go again for lunch, however the view was still amazing, the food was not. My husband had the fish and chips which was a bit greasy this year and I had the ono with rice which my fish was grilled and super dry. I would give this place a try again next year, it could have just been an off day.

“Must try the seafood salad!!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We dined @ this place just randomly while we were walking along the seaside. Oh boy, am I glad we made that decision, THIS HAS TO BE OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN OUR TRIP. The salad is well balanced with seafood, greens and fruit. The mango just melts in your mouth... and the seafood is sooo fresh. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Best fish”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

This was our best seafood supper during our stay in Kona!
Highly Recommend,right across from sea wall,watching the reactions of pedestrians caught unaware by the splashing waves was entertaining! ( no one got wet)
