My family members and I were looking for a place to have lunch one day during our vacation and just happened to walk up to this restaurant. We checked out the menu and decided to give it a try. All the adults ordered the crepes after the waiter's description of them. I had the vegetarian one and have to say... More

Located in The Most Expensive Region of Hanalei, In the latest modern structure, overlooking the glorious Hanalei Valley is the latest candidate for Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmare! This place is terrible! When we asked the waiter, "Are you open?", he responded rudely, " I am now.",must be affiliated in someway to the clowns that are running this place. Several people... More

I had a burrito, my wife had a fajita wrap. Food was cooked with love - wow, did it ever taste great. Fresh and hot. Service was quite quick at mid day. I do love Mexican food. Being from Canada it's hard to find authentic made offerings since leaving San Diego. But this woman doing the cooking brought me back... More

I am no expert on food. I just know what I like. I like good food in a great setting surrounded by great company. We were a family and friend group of 8 people. We were accommodated without a reservation because we were dining before 5. We were seated on the back deck and had a spectacular view of the... More

Superb view if you sit outside. Food mediocre and overpriced. Flavorless rice and beans, and lots of cheese on a fish taco? Same day service. The waiter acted like he was doing us a favor by taking our order then we had to wait an hour for the food. There are much better options in town like the food trucks... More

Sad to say - but this little place was not able to live up to expectations. The location is at the back of a little shopping centre and is rather basic concerning the furnishings and overall design, plastic ware instead of glasses might give you an idea. 
Having said that, the views are lovely and the restaurant itself is in... More

Grab a seat on the patio and enjoy the lushness with waterfall views. The service was friendly and the fish tacos were good. Keep in mind that this is a Mexican and Brazilian cuisine restaurant. The Brazilian flair is what made it for us.

We have been here many times in our past travels to Hanalei and to us this place is getting better and better. This time we ate inside the restaurant which has a mexi-flare decor to it.
