You can expect to pay over $50 for lunch for 2 if you don't have a drink. The Mai-Tais for expample were served in 6 oz. plastic cups and cost $13. The food was unexceptional.

We ate here a few times and hands down the best thing on the menu is the coconut shrimp. For pool bar restaurant it's okay.

There is only one way to get to this restaurant and its outside and around the pool. Treacherous in stormy weather.

We each had the special (ahi); my husband had the mo'o (adult milkshake) and I had Pinot Gregio. With 20 percent tip, bill came to $78. Loretta, our waiter, was attentive,... More
