“Great little beach restaurant. fresh fish is good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Went on Friday nite. They have a $16 BBQ. Steak, pork chops (2) veggies or fresh fish...with corn niblets ( must be a hawaiian thing ) and salad bar and white rice. I had the Ahi fish ..tuna.. very fresh and quite good. Stole some of my daughter's steak.. medium rare as ordered and very good. They cook everything on a big gas grill up front, bring the meat to the table and you get your own fixins. No beer/wine, but many folks snuck in some beer and wine in cooler bags. Not us of course :) excellent spot to watch the sunset, and at 745 watch fireworks from one of the hotels. Excellent evening! Went there during the day for lunch as well. Good food, kinda slow..but all in all a good place.

“Fantastic beachside cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Just looks like a beachside cafe from the outside, but had lunch there a few times and always delicious, healthy and such good value. Would highly recommend the kalua pork sandwich!

“Nothing like good food...and a great view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

I am in O'ahu, Hawaii for the week for business. I decided to go for a walk along the beach and discovered this little gem! Since it was breakfast, I ordered their,"The Queen's Bagel". Toasted bagel, red onion, sliced tomato, capers, pesto and cream cheese. Dang, tastiest bagel I ever had!

You place your order and they take your name. Pick a seat, any seat as you are looking straight out into the pacific ocean. If you are fortunate enough as I was, you will have the pleasure of watching surfers as they make your order fresh (not frozen) which explains why it does take a little bit longer to get your food but who cares...you are in O'ahu on the beach and someone else is cooking fresh food for you.

There is nothing like eating fresh food, outside at the beach in O'ahu, and letting time slip past you as you enjoy every bite. The menu is decently priced (O'ahu standards) and they offer some real good choices such as crab cakes (fresh and real crab) and homemade burgers with tons of flavour.They are friendly and the food...well the food speaks for itself. If you are in O'ahu, or coming soon, you just have to come see these guys!
