Great dining choice in the middle of Alii' Drive! My wife needs to be gluten free and many of their entrees were of that nature. Ambiance was great - watching the surfers while we ate was a special treat! Only negative was that some of their deep fried items were somewhat "greasy".

Great service. Pricey but tasty ono tacos. Lavaman from Kona Brewery on tap. Beach lanai dining very comfortable. Hawaiian music would have been nice but the oldies mix was lively.

Really enjoyed the mushroom pasta with ono and my husband enjoyed the fish and chips. Garlic shrimp appetizer was also good as was the mangotini cocktail special. We'll be back to try additional items on the menu for that gorgeous View!

If you want to try authentic island cuisine that hasn’t been tampered with from a “tourists’ point of view”, do not eat here.
Their dishes had a lot of flavors, but didn’t blend together. Their food and sauces were very interesting, and not in a good way.
Hubby and I, one appetizer and an entree each. $80 we were not happy about spending.

Lovely outdoor dining with yummy food. We had a table right by the crashing surf. Came here the day after Christmas and it was busy. There was some confusion about getting us to the right table, and initially, the host neglected to give us menus when we were seated. However, they corrected the problems. I had the Poke Nachos as my meal. It was huge and delicious. So much food I couldn’t finish. My husband had the ahi steak and loved it. Great place for tourists.

Made reservations a week in advance and planned it specifically to watch sunset from a rail seat only to not be given a rail seat but given a table with a minimal view

It then took someone almost 20 minutes to come over and greet us and then another 15 minutes to get our beverages

The service was slow and spotty and from ordering to food arrival to drink arrival

A chicken wing special was ordered and one of the wings was not cooked thoroughly

Aside from above the rest of the items ordered were good to great but sadly the poor service and crappy seating dampened the evening

The service was excellent, but everything else was kind of a mess. We were seated outside and it started to rain really hard. We got wet, and the food got wet even though we were under umbrellas. We were moved to another table where it was dry, and the staff remade our food. The food was so/so and pretty expensive ($24 for a burger!). We're going to give it another try, hopefully when there's not heavy rain.

We had the best table in the house! Thomas provided excellent, accurate, and professional service. Our party of 5 enjoyed pupus, main dishes, and desserts. The creme brulee was really good! We were especially delighted with the high surf that put on a show for us that evening. Highly recommend!

My experience was ok. I’m not a chef but I can definitely make better ahi nachos at home that are loaded with poke (these are not) for about the same price- there was probably about 5 times the amount of edamame beans compared to poke. The fish sandwich was good. Drink pours seemed weak too which is lame because I’m by the beach and ordered a drink and not a juice. Would probably come back for a beer but that’s about it.
