Lovely setting, delicious food and drinks! There was a little bit of a wait because the other restaurant had a private function so everyone was eating here that night. Wish we had enough room for dessert!

Fantastic food in a beautiful setting. Great steaks and sea food. Most purple feel they have to get the delicious seafood but don't overtook the prime rib. Expensive!

Beautiful location, great food, wonderful service - thank you Wilma! Loved this romantic restaurant at The Hyatt, great menu and wonderful dishes. Unfortunate that people think that it is okay to bring complaining toddlers/screaming babies to upscale restaurants after 7pm - or AT ALL.

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
