This was a great example of what to look out for in restaurants. Everything seemed well at first. The view was amazing and the architecture was decent. My wife and I work for a restaurant review magazine. Often we are able to peek a look...More

Our food was really good and fresh, and the view was unbeatable. (Right on the beach with outdoor, patio seating.) The only negative was the price - it was definitely a bit overpriced for what it was. Then again, this is Hawaii, so it's somewhat...More

You can't beat the location, we always come here for the first breakfast on the island. Can't beat the view, oceanside with views down into Wailea. The food is good, a little pricey but the scenary cannot be beat. Crab egg benedict is delicious!

The service was so amateurish it was almost comical. The only thing that wasn't funny was the bill. The cuisine was long on artistic presentation and short on food. Avoid.
