Driving here is beautiful. The road tight but with lush landscaping. The restaurant is a long time local favorite. The place seems a bit dated, but pleasant. The staff is very nice. The food some what average. The fact that they offer dishes most other restaurants don't offer make it enjoyable. The food presentation is very nice. This is still... More

- pina colada: they were good - babanouch and pita bread were super good - fresh grilled fish: the fish was good but nothing to write home about - falafels: too much black pepper. Are they home made? - the service was ok. - hula was great!!!!

Great view and food. The view is absolutely spectacular !! The food matches the view. Great soups and fish dishes especially the hebi! To my surprise one of the best hamburger ever for lunch. Good selection of beer, wine and a full bar. We will be back -- worth the drive to the north end of the island.

This restaurant is very isolated and you must travel over several one way bridges to get here. I would not travel at night, but it is a beautiful trip during the day. The food is good and it is a large restaurant inside. This time we went for lunch which has a smaller menu but there is a large bar.... More

We stopped here after going to the Limahuli Gardens. The restaurant was fairly empty because the nearby resort is being refurbished. The menu had a decent variety of items with a Mediterranean theme (they also had burgers, etc.). We had the gyro with lamb and beef and the other gyro made with the catch of the day (ahi tuna). Both... More

We have driven by here many times, but never stopped to see what was here, that was a mistake. This is one of the only restaurants beyond Hanalei on the road out to Ke'e Beach and the Limahuli Gardens. We were on our way back from the gardens and decided to stop in for lunch. The food and service were... More

We came here for a Luau, and were very disappointed. The food was lacking in flavour, was not fresh and extremely over priced. At $85 a person you'd expect to get something at least half decent, but it's the worst food I've eaten at a restaurant in recent memory. We were also charged $35 for our 8 month old who... More

Good spot for a leisurely lunch, food has middle eastern flair, expensive but well prepared and served. drinks, especially wine, out of site even for Hawaii. Have been there many times, but price increases seem out of line with other local favorites.

Worst meal of our trip. Over priced rice a roni and old sea food. Service in the bar was bad but dinner service was fine. Can't understand their good ratings Might be that they are the only game in town at that end of the road.

Super fresh food and incredible views since it's out on the beach in the North end of the island. Good Mai Tai's & wine list.
