Very quiet little restaurant. Waitress forgot to fill up waters a lot. Very good food for good prices in comparison to everywhere else around. The Caesar salad was superb. So was the Maui onion soup.

It does not look that great from the outside but inside is very nice. We had great service and delicious food. The menu does not have a huge selection but the four dishes selected by our group were all good.

Do not come to this restaurant. We had a reservation and they couldn't figure out where or how to seat us. They started taking to a table three different times and then stopped. The food was mediocre at best and they forgot my spicy tuna...More

The restaurant is lovely and the food is freshly prepared. My only gripe is that it's very noisy at dinner time

If you are looking for an ocean view restaurant, this isn't it. Try Five Palms. Excellent ocean view restaurant.
