We headed here (after a disappointing experience at the silly Lava Lava Beach Club). I called ahead, and the owner, Steve, was great. When we arrived, he was having a table cleared for us, so we had a quick drink at the bar. The drinks...More

I wrote a review in 2013 about good food but slow service. We ate here again this year in May 2017. The food was good. The fish (hebi) fresh. The service was very good. We liked the server very much. The mai tai was outstanding....More
