Seated beneath upscale thatched roofing and next to koi-filled tide pools, this restaurant is the quintessential Pacific Island experience.

We had a great table next to the Koi pools. The dinner however was a mushy concoction of insanely expensive fish devoid of any flavor. What a disappointment for $174

Love a good date night but this was far from. The location and setting of the place is great! However the taste of the food and correlating prices do not add up. I don't mind spending good money on dinner, but this was a disappointment....More

The atmosphere at this restaurant is amazingly beautiful. You are surrounded by a koi pond as you enjoy your dinner. The food was outstanding.

The view of the waster around the restaurant combined with good food and excellent service made this one of the better Kauai restaurants. Do not pass up the pork belly or the donuts.

Eleven dinners in Kauai and this was the best one. Great intimate setting near koi pond. Exceptional service and really good food. Not cheap but so worth it.
