Andrew was wonderful and even spent time chatting with us. Decided on the 5-course Tasting Menu. You get enough to taste plus paired with wine. Highly recommend.

Just 2 minute walk from our room. The menu is superb! Beautiful tropical view off the Lanai. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Our meals and dessert were fantastic! I would highly recommend this place!
