The atmosphere is beautiful. We did not have a view of the ocean but I'm not sure anyone did. The service was excellent and the menu had lots of options. If you do not like sushi or other Japanese food, this is not your place.

The food was good, but the sushi was overpriced and quite bland compared to what we were used to... Drinks and food were quite pricey. Staff was friendly and a great atmosphere though!

All of their menus are available online but you need to go through the Hyatt website to see them. There is no posted keiki menu but we saw many families with young children there so there probably are non-published options.
