I love it! Place opens at 5 pm. No reservations. We planned to all meet at 5 but of course, some came later. You can't be seated til the whole party is there. By 5:30 there was a 45 minute wait - on a Tuesday. That's how good it is. It's a lovely open air place. No a/c. There's a nice bar and several other nice places to wait. . Everybody is friendly and you just put your name on the list & when your entire party is there you get seated. For my meal, I had some fantastic coconut shrimp. The best tasting shrimp. There were 9 of us and the service was flawless. The setting is lovely, on a hillside. Everybody loved their meals.

Was my first time there. The food was ok. The salmon w pesto was very salty. They ran out of their famous steak that my husband likes. I did like the kalamari w asian sauce.

The restaurant is so popular that they don’t take reservation. The restaurant opens at five. By 4:30pm, tons of people are already line up outside of the restaurant. The prime rib can feed up to 3 or 4 people. Most of the main courses are BIG. The service is great. The restaurant has an awesome view. The only thing is the place gets crowded so fast. People at the bar would stand around your table once they get their drinks. You may end up eating behind someone’s butt.

I was here 15years ago and really wanted to go back. We finally made it and it was worth the wait. The food was great and the restaurant overlooks and nice marina. It was nice to see all the boats. It was a little pricy, but not any more expensive than other places to eat in Hawaii.

Food was fabulous and the view of the mountains and garden below was beautiful. After dinner we explored the garden. Very popular place so get there early or see if they do reservations.
