It's just Meh. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing was fantastic. The scenery is gorgeous and we enjoyed watching the Koi interact all around us.

This place is stunning! You really feel like you are floating on a pond. The staff is warm and attentive without being overbearing. I was very pleased that despite the location and surroundings, the quality of the food was excellent!

Fish was great and so were the hors d'oeuvres. A very romantic place to enjoy a nice dinner. Really enjoyed this dinner with friends.

Embrace the tempting combination of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine served in a unique Hawaiian setting. Thatched-roof bungalows float above a koi-filled lagoon at the base of a waterfall to create romantic ambiance. Inspired by local ingredients and the rich culinary traditions of Hawaii
