“Great Place to Watch the Sunset”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

A former beach food stand, this place has really come long way in the past year. FYI there's no liquor license, so no mai tai sunset drinks. Food is very good, grilled outdoors. Place is informal, so you'll be sitting at a picnic table with an umbrella. They have full regular menu of hamburgers, french fries, etc., but also daily fish specials for less than $15. Great view of Waikiki especially at sunset. I sort of don't want to rave about it too much, 'cuz then it will be mobbed by tourists!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

Awesome food! Can honestly say I have not had a burger that good in a long time! Reasonable prices! Great view (overlooking the ocean) and offers lots of shaded seating.
The only downside is- being an outdoor cafe, you have to content w/ birds eager to get your food and a strong breeze.
Highly recommend it to anyone going to Waikiki!

“Beautiful setting, great food”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

We went on Friday for the BBQ, and everything was excellent. Fish was cooked perfectly, ribs were tender, prawns were huge. At 14.95, it was the best value in Waikiki. Nice view of the fireworks too. I wish we could have gone back, but it was our last night.

“Great little place”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

This place is a gem! Right on the beach-looks like a snack bar but has really good food, especially for breakfast-try the pancakes-even their iced tea was delicious!
