This is the place to go if you want fine dining or a "special" dinner in Poipu. We ate at similarly priced restaurants most of our nine nights in Hawaii, and this dinner was easily my favorite. Everything was nearly perfect. The atmosphere is incredible....More

Make reservations ahead of time and ask for a window seat! This place is right along the coast and does not disappoint. My husband goes for just the lobster mac and cheese and I, not the seafood lover, think it's absolutely amazing. Even the calamari...More

We had my daughter's dinner at this restaurant, with about 42 guests. The table was set up facing the ocean, with the most amazing sunset in Kauai! Food is delicious & they make the best piña coladas in the Island!
