We went for happy hour. The house margarita was pretty good, especially at $7. Our waiter asked if we wanted chips, guacamole and salsa. Sure, why not. I knew it wasn’t free, but was quite shocked when the bill came and it was $15. I’m used to getting chips and salsa for free, and paying some extra for guacamole, but $15? Way too much. It was tasty but that wasn’t cool.

Eat here for anniversary and lunch meetings. Nice outdoor dining. Restaurant staff were kind to reserve us an inside table for our anniversary when it rained. Table are kind of standard, but food is good. Nice happening crowd too on Saturday nights. Also take business lunches here when folks visit from out of of town.

We came for late lunch at 3pm perfect time to go- we have been when the place is so crowded and nightlife vibe which is fun but different. Tortillas , nachos, quesadillas and corn all fantastic and the Mexican brownie was good and rich and huge. Good servings sizes and excellent service. We miss the non alcoholic rock melon drink they used to serve. We will always come here when In Waikiki.
