This was my last night in Hawaii, and I was determined to eat fresh fish. It wasn't cheap, but I wasn't disappointed. I had three kinds of fish, all perfectly cooked. With soup, appetizers, many drinks and dessert my tab for two was over $200,...More

The best part of this restaurant is the covered outdoor seating and the view. Husband enjoyed his oatmeal. I had eggs, ham, and cheese biscuit. It was ok.

We ate here 3 times during our stay and every time was delicious! The service was on point and the open view of the bay was beautiful. Definitely recommend the choco mac nut pie!

All four in my family really enjoyed their meals. I had the macadamia encrusted Mahi and it was delicious. Nice open air restaurant with a view of the bay. A little noisy with the street traffic but easy to overlook.
