Gorgeous views from the outdoor bar but otherwise nothing spectacular. The chicken sandwich was awful tasted like a bunch of chewy fat. I would not go back. Expensive too.

Very tasty wine! Also calamari and nutella cheese cake!!!

We had pre paid menu, and it didn`t include fried potatoes. When i ask the waiter about it, he explained i can`t get it. But 5 min later brought me a plate of fries for free! i was very surprised and very happy :) great service absolutely!

We ate lunch here 2 yrs ago and it was great. Last night we had a party of 4 and all 4 entries were bad. The Mahi mahi was so tiny and over cooked I sent it back. $34. I live in Hawaii and have had fish at dozens of restaurants. This was the smallest portion I have ever seen! The lamb was over cooked to the point that only half of the portion was edible. The waitress, Karen was very kind and gracious. I could tell she was embarrassed about how poor our food was. They did give me a pizza to replace my terrible fish, the pizza was fantastic... for whatever that is worth.

This restaurant has both the casual island atmosphere as well as the elegant dining. Happy hours deals good on the budget. Dinner entrees and appetizers are excellent, presentation and cooking is very high quality. Thoroughly enjoyed my Cilantro Macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi entrée; hubby loved his lobster salad (it's more lobster than salad) and shrimp appetizer. Happy hour drinks kinda limited but go off happy hour menu for full bar choices. Nice live Hawaiian entertainment in lounge area makes for a romantic yet light time. Gorgeous sunset view!!!

We have been coming here for the amazing Sunday Champagne brunch for several years. Alas, the hotel is closing July 1st and will be demolished to make way for luxurious condos for the ultra rich folks.

The food, wait staff and ambiance are all top notch. We feel like family every time we eat here and will truly miss the wonderful staff, the great food, and the live music. So sad about the closing.......ALOHA Jonabel, Debbie, Alan, Tony, and Sunny. All of you are dear to our heart.

If you have a choice of brunches, eat here before the resort closes. This is an end of a great era.
