Great place to sit out of the sun and watch the surf. Service is EXTREMELY SLOW, even at lunch time. Food is ok, bit overpriced.

One of our favorite restaurants in Kauai, we always come for a sunset timed dinner. The sunset this year was drizzly, but we had a fun time and enjoyed the fantastic dinner!! The service was outstanding, drinks and apps and dinner all quality.

The setting on the ocean and the sunset were beautiful. Service was excellent, attentive and helpful. Fish dishes were some of the best I've ever had. Make reservations in Oder not to wait. I'd return for another fantastic meal.

The best time to eat here is at lunch. It is easy to score a table and the view of surfers and the beach is lovely. This is an upmarket restaurant with an expensive decor but the cuisine is patchy in quality. The coconut shrimp...More

Even though some rain and clouds covered most of the sunset, we were still able to have an exceptional dinner on beautiful property overlooking the ocean. The food is delicious and staff are attentive.

First off, the view is what you are paying for and it is amazing. There was a flock of tropical birds, waves, etc. I can only guess our waiter was new or just completely terrible, fingers crossed he was new. He took our drink order,...More
