I've been eating here most visits to Hawaii for the past 20 years. Sadly, the number of vegan entrees is less than in years past. Service is great and the setting is charming. My most recent visit, the vegan Sombrero dish was just off, and...More

It was raining heavy so we stopped in for a glass of wine. Then we ordered some food. Real nice people run this casual place. Food was awesome. Wine selection limited but with very nice wines. Great ambiance too.

Perfect weather for outdoor dining at Postcards. The Caesar Salad had a nice creamy dressing. My pasta with seafood was delicious and my wife's blacken fish was also delicious. The fried coconut crusted ice cream was just average.

My wife and I shared the Tapenade Trio, it was delicious. I had the seared Sesame Ahi Tuna and my wife had the Sorento. Both were incredible. The tuna melted in my mouth. For desert, we shared the lava cake.
