Located on a one-wayside street off Lihue's Rice Street, you need a map or GPS to find this small restaurant. But it is worth the trouble! We ordered a "Panko Mahimahi" and got a delicious piece of fish in a panko crumb crust. The bed...More

Don't expect fancy, or linen tablecloths. But even the fruit salad that comes with the main course is made with fresh local fruit.Fresh fish,copious portions, upscale preparations ,large variety, very low price. Home made cream pie comes with some entrees.
