We had breakfast there the other day and it was very good. You can get a Mexican breakfast or just regular bacon and eggs. Both are tasty and the service is wonderful and the prices are reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

Had dinner here. Food was good, but just that. Our waiter was excellent, but couldn't seem to get the drunks next to us to quiet down. I suppose we could have moved to a different table, or at least asked. The experience was not pleasant.

While walking around Kapaa. Found this place. Had a good happy hour there. Then a few day later had good dinner. Prices are reasonable. Food was good. Gluten-free options / staff understands gluten free.

I’ve never given a one star before, but this place was a rip-off! My daughter and I were looking for a place to hang out during the bad weather and came upon this place. It was Happy Hour, according to the chalkboard at the entry,...More
