We ate here with a large party and it was a good experience. It is open air with views of the little shopping community. The food was good and healthy portions. Nice atmosphere for an informal place.

We visited this restaurant 3 different times in our 4 days on the island. Very good food, a little pricey, but just a tip, unless you are starving, order one entree and ask for another plate because you will get plenty to eat.

We also visited for breakfast one morning and wow were the reviews spot on for the macadamia nut pancakes. Again, order one plate and share.

This cafe serves seriously big helpings of tasty food with a slightly Mexican style. Casual atmosphere, friendly staff, open long hours. Located on the main road through Kapaa which is a good town to have a break. Breakfast till noon or lunch from 11am, full bar,good coffee. .

The only thing interesting about this place is that you sit on a deck above the main traffic light of Kapaa downtown so you will have a view from the top and all the exhaust emissions of the highway while you eat plus the noise...
I tried this place 3 times in the last 15 years, each and every time I promised to my self not to go back there again and got fooled again from friends staying here...
Their menu is way to huge for them to be able to make everything and to make everything right, if you know what I mean...
They can't neither get a salad right! Their salads look and taste fake beside the whole plate comes filled up to the top with pieces of salad tomatoes and whatsoever way to big to be able to dress it all nicely and to be able to put them in your mouth unless you have a very big mouth, cow size...
I asked for the melted brie on baguette and sun dried tomatoes and I had to return the dish 3 times because they couldn't figure out how to melt the brie: It would always come out as just sliced ...
The service is terrible, fake even here, absolutely not interested in you but in how many tables they can serve by the end of the evening. Always tons of waiting time to seat and to get somebody at the table regularly...

The seared ahi appetizer was terrific. Split the entrees or go hungry. We definitely will be back before we leave Kauai.
