This restaurant is well worth visiting for the food and the amazing ocean view. Restaurant is right on the beach. My wife and I had lunch there and had a very good meal. There are a lot of selections on the menu. After lunch you can go outside and take a look at the breathtaking ocean view.

We stopped here for a yummy lunch with friends. The food (fish dishes and salads) were exceptionally well prepared. The baclava dessert lived up to it's reputation. Portions are sized so that you can enjoy great food and still have room for dessert. We are close by and will return for a low-key but hopefully delicious New Year's Eve dinner!... More

Went for dinner even though it was some drive from our hotel in Lihue. Booked a table with OpenTable and the place was easy to find with Google Maps. The restaurant was busy. The food was mostly good. The day's special fish dish was quite good, but the vegetarian entrée was a disappointment. A bit expensive for the size of... More

We've eaten here a few times over our few visits and enjoy it very much. Family owned, great music on Friday night (Angela used to be a waitress, she could win The Voice, Idol or anyone of those), and solid food offering. With one of the only sommeliers on the north shore, their wine list is top notch. Even with... More

We have heard about this place and reviews are all over the place, so we decided to try it. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either. We were just hoping for better. The location is great, right near the water, I suppose lunch would be a visual treat. If they were to up their game food wise and maybe... More

My wife and I went there for a late lunch today and had the soup and special of the day. The soup was tomato basil, the lunch special was seafood paella, which we both judged to be excellent. Nice location, would have been perfect had the windows looking onto the ocean not been in need of a good cleaning. Hope... More
