This Polynesian-inspired, thatched-roof, open-air piece of paradise will make you forget you are not oceanfront. Best food I had on Kauai. The hazelnut crusted fish had a wide variety of complex flavors throughout the plate. Amazing and beautiful!

The restaurant is built around a koi pond, it's lovely!! My boyfriend had the lobster which was excellent! I had a salad which was also excellent!!! I gave it a 4 because the service could have been better being a fine dining, expensive restaurant.

Ok to start we lived the food and view. It's an amazing property. However. There were 2 idiot bartenders and another server who kept joining them behind the bar to serve (count them) 3 customers. 2 hostesses standing around pretending to be important and 1...More

Embrace the tempting combination of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine served in a unique Hawaiian setting. Thatched-roof bungalows float above a koi-filled lagoon at the base of a waterfall to create romantic ambiance. Inspired by local ingredients and the rich culinary traditions of Hawaii
