this was our second time to eat there in 2 years. Excellent farm to market type of dinner with about 5 courses. You are seated family style so get to know all the folks around you as part of the experience. Highly recommend.

We just dined with Kauai ONO 560 for the first time. We are regular visitors to the North Shore and for some reason have just heard about this "pop up" dining experience. Normally, we look for something special for one night when we're on the...More

This was an absolutely incredible experience. 5 course dinner which was perfectly portioned with food that was delectable, organically grown from local farms, & originally prepared! There are 2 communal tables that you sit at under a white tent. You bring your own wine to...More

I just booked again for our trip in 2 weeks - because we enjoyed it so much last year. Yes, it's $60 pp and well worth it. It fills up fast so be sure and book well in advance.
