This place was pricey but worth every penny. Because sunsets are still early, we arrived at 5:30. We were the first table seated - right on the ocean front. (Bring your sunglasses!) The Kona Lime Cocktail is very refreshing and not too sweet - kind of an Asian/Hawaiian slant to the mojito. Grilled Sriracha shrimp over watermelon appetizer was a... More

... and we also tried the dinner under the stars, which is an amazing experience - with great food. Asian fusion, great kampachi and ahi sashimi, very friendly service. Wonderful.

High food prices do not square with the food. We have had both good and bad meals with two days. When good, very good, but when bad very bad. We would not dine at this restaurant again.

Great dinners and buffet breakfast right on the beach. Go at dinner for a wonderful sunset view. Kids can play in the sand while you enjoy your drinks.

I've been stopping here for breakfast over the years and consistently would have rated it a 5 star breakfast buffet. This year, however, I was somewhat disappointed. Actually more than somewhat. This is always a very special breakfast and in spite of the setting it didn't measure up to what it once was. First off the setting is gorgeous, a... More

This is a beautiful restaurant, with a wonderful view. That's just the beginning. You are treated like royalty here with super-service from all of the friendly servers/staff. The food was all excellent. Our party of four had lobster tails, sushi, sea bass, calamari, corn, asparagus, and more!. The flatbread and butter are amazing. Drinks arrive quickly and mixed perfectly. We... More
