Obsessed with this place and ate here at least 3 times on our week long trip here. :) Breakfast and lunch foods both were impressive and you must try the coconut banana smoothie. Visit this place at least once on your visit.

Just a small bugger joint nestled in between two buildings it surprised me. The gals were gracious and kind. The meals we had were more than we could eat. Ended up being 3 meals. I'll be back if they are still here the next trip.

We both got a burger. I loved the cheese burger, my husband loved the Bleu burger, it was dripping in blue cheese! Fries are $3.00 more. My husband got taro fries, they were different, but tasted pretty good. They also make a taro burger. They...More

We stopped by on the way from the airport to our resort and it was a very pleasant surprise. We were there early so no problems with a wait. Very good fish and chips and the smoothy was refreshing. Quick and easy.
