I brought my family (6) to this new and very clean restaurant. The atmosphere is amazing. The server Chambrye is awesome, very friendly, making you very comfortable. This is the best restaurant in Hamakua Coast ( from Hilo to Waimea, Hawaii).

We placed our order for 2 sandwiches. 40 minutes later, we still had no lunch. We ended up having to get our order to go so we could make it on time to ATV riding.
