This place has to be one of the best restaurants I have been to. The fish is as fresh as you will get in Hawaii unless you catch it yourself. I am glad we could get a spot at the bar to eat.

Beautiful restaurant and location for dinner. Our waitress was phenomenal and the service was excellent. The food was very good but seems a little over priced. Reservations are definitely needed if you want to go.

Of course the food, each meal, every item ordered, was perfect. As was the service. But what makes this the finest in the world is the decor. What I mean is 1) the view/location. It's just spectacular. It's on a soft sandy beach, with wonderful...More

It is a fancier place. Dress shorts and a button down shirt. If you are paying close to 300$ for the meal dress nicer. Plus the photo ops with the most amazing beach backdrop make for nice family photos of you are dressed... More
