Beautiful open patio deck with great views of the valley and ocean below. Geckos wander about the railings, and will lick from jelly packets if left out. Nice breeze. Good food. Nice people.

I love this place and visit every time we go to Kona. The food is wonderful. Love the hula bread. We normally come for breakfast and enjoy the view, the food and the geckos! Definitely worth the drive. The staff is always very attentive.

This is our favorite restaurant in Captain Cook and we always try to visit after snorkeling. It has gotten a lot more crowded lately with limited parking. The sandwiches are excellent with a home-made Hawaiian bread.

We had breakfast here on two occasions during our week stay. It had the best food and awesome service! Waitress was extremely nice and informative of the menu items. A must eat is the French toast! It was amazing. The coffee was really good too!...More
