We visited the restaurant for an early dinner at around 5:30, which was a lucky occasion as the restaurant offers Happy Hour between 5 and 6 pm, which they call Sunset hour ( for sure the case in January). We got to sit outside, watch a spectacular sunset and enjoy half priced Mai Tai and a number of Pupu platters.... More

We made reservations here based on TripAdvisor. Small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Local vibe. Fresh excellent food. We tried the fish tacos, shrimp macadamia and scallops plus a passion fruit cake. All excellent. If you are in the area don't miss it. Plus every day from 5-6 happy hour with discount appetizers and drinks.

Happy hour 5pm with delicious and inexpensive pupus. The service is friendly and you will not find a better price for good food in Hawaii.

We were looking for a place to have dinner and drove by the Plantation Grill and decided to try. We had no reservations but were accommodated with a smile. The food and service were very good. We enjoyed our dinner so much that before leaving, we made reservations for the last evening of our trip. Again, the food is very... More

Went for Sunset Hour. Very good pupus. Great $6 Maitais. Good service. Dinner menu looked great but we filled up on the Sunset Hour specials. No view but worth the visit.

We had dinner here one evening as it was close to the Hapuna Resort. We enjoyed our evening very much. We both had the fish special, Ahi, served seared, outstanding. Not much of a view; however if you're looking for a casual dinner, with good food and service, you can't go wrong.

This is an intimate place Hawaii style. If you are going there, it is a place for couples, friends to have that evening to just be able to talk and enjoy the ambience and the food to your hearts content. It is a must place...

Pretty place that looks classically Hawaiian. Forget that it's opposite the storage tanks of the docks this is a lovely little corner of the island. The menu is standard fare but generally pretty good which means it has steak, fish and pork decently prepared but costly. However, it has a great little bar. You can only fit half a dozen... More
