Absolutely delicious! We had a party of 6 with a wide assortment of menu items and everything was spectacular. The food here was easily on par with the other "fine dining" establishments we visited on Kauai. The service was fast and friendly.

I would have given it a five star as the food was delicious but we felt very rushed. Our drinks arrived at the same time as our appetizer and the main arrived shortly after that. In and out in less than 45 minutes. Not a...More
