I had a good latte here, the best cup of coffee I had on the Big Island. Then again, it should be for the price. My wife also said her cup of coffee was good, but the staff were unconcerned when the milk they provided...More

My very favorite restaurant on the Big Island. Outdoor elegant dining and superb food. Very romantic and tucked away from the bustle of Alii St. If you are on Kona side, you must drive up to Holualoa and visit this restaurant for dinner. It's incredible.
