The featured food is locally procured. Our abalone appetizer was superb. My little lobster tails were so tender and succulent. We watched a wonderful sunset from our table. The restaurant completed the meal with a complimentary, birthday, chocolate souffle.

We ate here once during our last stay in Hualalai but we prefer the simpler style of the Hualalai Grille. Each dish had an abundance of flavors if you are into that kind of thing. The bread was here was unusual and excellent tasting.
