We were very disappointed after traveling the long and winding road tonight in the rain to find the restaurant was closed due to power outage. They should have had the decency to at least call customers with reservations to save them the trip so other plans could be made. We've always enjoyed the music there and the food used to... More

We just stopped by in the afternoon for "happy hour" between 3 and 5 p.m. With some tropical drinks, steamed clams and other appetizers we enjoyed the view of beach and ocean from the windows of the waterview restaurant on the North Shore near Princeville. I would love to go back sometime for a sunset dinner. Very good food and... More

Very good food considering it's remote location on the North Shore. Good fresh fish and the lamb rack is excellent. A couple of half price wine nights every week, may need a reservation at busier times and it is not inexpensive. Take a stroll down to the beach after dinner or before to catch a nice sunset. Recommended.

This place is a beautiful ride almost to the northwest end of the island road and can easily be missed,. Keep an eye out for the Hanalei Colony Resort, it's in the same resort compound. They serve lunch and dinner, start at noon, and happy hour daily from 3:00-6:00. Every Wednesday and Friday night they have half-price wine night. The... More

Very friendly staff, very good food and nice view of the ocean. They also had a children's menu. The restaurant is tucked off the road and isn't really near anything other than the small resort near it. We went to Ke'e beach and went there for dinner on the way back.

Please don't waste your money. The atmosphere is wierd without being funky, the food is mediocre at best and the service is uninspired. The only reason to eat here would be if you are staying at the Hanalei Colony Resort and were too tired to go elsewhere.

We tried out the restaurant and was very happy we did. It ended up being 1/2 price wine night and we ordered champagne. The appetizers, dinner and desert all where good, was one of our better meals on the trip. They had two guys playing guitar so we found it very enjoyable. Worth the drive through all the one lane...

We are here a few times during our stay in Ha'ena. It was so close to the home we were renting and was nice to look out at the ocean while we are and not have to make the 20 minute drive into Hanelei over the one lane bridges. Delicious fresh fish, salads and desserts! The coconut baklava was divine!!
