We stopped in around 5 and the parking lot was nearly full. With no reservation, we were lucky to be seated. We immediately enjoyed some cocktails and a light dinner. The pina colada and the painkiller drinks we ordered tasted a bit watered down - almost no alcohol and is if from a drink mix. I would recommend sticking with the wine list which was great. For light dinner fare, the folks in our party ordered the coconut shrimp as an appetizer (very tasty with a nice mango chutney sauce), dinner salads (the beet salad and house) and a teryaki pineapple entree. The food tasted good and fresh, but the portions were small. The appeal to this place is the open air dining and the beautiful views and grounds of the Hanalei Bay Resort.

Very disappointed, waiter was annoying, food was a 2 out of 10. Got a Chicken Teriyaki sandwich. No flavor and the grilled Pineapple slice was 1/16th of an inch thick. Tried one of their cocktails, let's just say the glass of water was the best thing I was served.

This place has a true Polynesian look to it, settled near the water, surrounded by lush tropical trees and gardens. Their are rock formations where they have small koi ponds and added the waterfall effects. They have tiki torches roaring. The restaurant is indoor / outdoor, not much of a breeze but at night we were comfortable. They have valet parking, another nice touch. The gentleman were happy to take a family photo when leaving and they were fast.

You can reserve on open table, I would recommend this especially with parties over 4.

The staff was great, friendly and fast. The food was good. Not excellent, but good. The BBQ wings were a hit, little messy. I had the poke, it was solid. Chicken fingers were unusually good for the kids. The food prices were what you would expect and for the ambiance, you get a bargain. They have live music every night! We enjoyed two nights here.

The drinks were decent. The top shelf Mai Tai was good and without all the extra sugar.

Overall excellent pick, would absolutely recommend this restaurant first, before all other local restaurants for service and value.
