Ate here last week. My wife had a burger and I had a plate of local steamed fish. Along with the one drink we purchased, the tab was over $60. The taste of food was good, but not exceptional.

Casual dining, but excellent food. The food was very fresh and tasty. We sat on the outdoor terrace, it was wonderful.

We had late night dinner. We arrived just at the end of rush-hour so things settled down after a half hour. Food was well prepared, nice presentation and very tasty. Fish is easy to overcook or bury in strong flavors. Both dishes were just right. We will definitely be back.

Moderately priced Very good food. Almost entirely 'locals' as clientle. Hard to find but well worth it. Get there at beginning of dinner service since it always fills up. 7 day stay at 4++++ star hotel but chose to drive there 3 separate times for excellent dinners.

Their Black Bean Seafood Gumbo is the best! Plenty for a 2nd meal at home. We also like their Ginger Clams. The Parmesan Bread is great!!

We had visited the King's shops and returned to Kawaihai to enjoy lunch at the seafood grill. Great fresh fish and very resonably priced.

Fun happy hour -- watching the "slightly obstructed" sunset. We enjoyed happy hour ~ Mai Tai's, Shrimp Schumacher & fried Calamari. Calamari -- nice change for an old favorite.

Thank Susan A
