    We were seated at the front of the terrace so we enjoyed a spectacular view of the beach. I ordered the Eggplant Parm. The eggplant was cooked perfectly but I felt that the sauce was tasteless. My husband had the seafood diablo pasta. It was full of shrimp, fish, clams etc and the sauce was lightly spicy. Delicious! Our server Felipe was absolutely fabulous. He delivered great service with a great smile. He really made a difference for our experience!

    Really friendly people. The service was good and the menu has many different options. We had the poke bowl which was prepared in house. The restaurant is open and on the second floor with a nice view and the bar is popular. Will go back again

Discover Lihue

Lihue, the capital city of the Hawaiian Island of Kauai, is home to arguably the most diverse array of restaurants on the island. The restaurants in Lihue serve everything from authentic Italian cuisine to organic pescatarian food to "ono local grindz." However, all of the local eateries have something in common: the fresh seafood. The locally caught shrimp is especially popular with visitors. Known throughout the Hawaiian Islands as some of the tastiest shrimp around, the shrimp of Kauai is much sweeter and softer than the shrimp sold at mainstream grocery stores. As a special surprise, Kauai shrimp is usually served with the head on.
