Hawaiian
Enjoy local seafood with flavors inspired by the Pacific rim, served steps away from the ocean surf and beneath a canopy of stars at our award-winning restaurant. The culinary philosophy is to begin with ingredients from the island and beyond – ensuring the freshest, most sustainable ingredients available. Working with over 160 local farms, approximately 75% of the food served is from the Island of Hawai'i, prepared oven roasted, flame grilled and wok fired – fusing the flavours of Hawaii with Pan-Asian techniques.

    The atmosphere was amazing, the server Sharon was amazing. The dissatisfaction comes from the King Crab. For $78 one would think of a dinner and what was served was one leg on a bed of salt.

    Everything was great, it’s nice to see them coming back after Covid. They did not treat the locals very well during Covid. It was impossible to get a reservation there since they only catered to their guess. So I’m sure that hurt their business but it seems to be opening up again.

    Great meal - great setting - great service. We had lovely time with Lee as our server. While expensive, it is an amazing celebratory dining spot.

    Great sushi, location, and service. A bit pricey (but on par with other nice restaurants on the island) and good quality food. Setting was perfect. Great spot, book early as it seems to fill up fast.

    The food is excellent we had the chef’s sashimi platter which was outstanding. So was the monchong fish. Don’t forget to have the chocolate soufflé. Very pricey meal but a wonderful splurge with great food and a spectacular view of the ocean close up.

    Ocean front view was breathtaking, konch blowing/tiki torch lighting was neat, all of the staff was so professional very knowledgeable of the menu and gave 5 star service experience and food and drinks were so fresh and flavors exploded your taste buds with every bite! We went for a honeymoon date night and highly recommended this place!
