My wife and I went early evening without a reservation. We enjoyed a great experience and excellent food. Beautiful view, great service by Kyle and a visit by the manager Joel. Price is Right and I would definitely go back!

We ate there on the 2nd night of our 6-month-long visit. At that point, we did not care what the food was like, just the beauty and the close up experience of the ocean. Now I would say that the food is more expensive and...More

A good place to eat with a lot of choices! Fresh fish. The only down side is they have no AC. Open air so it can be steamy.

Love this restaurant! Never disappointed in our meals, great location with awesome views. Make sure you ask for sugar on the rim of your lemon drops (if you want it), otherwise they come without. The fish is fresh and the steak was juicy.

Yes. There is a road behind all the restaurant and shops. You can find parking in all the lots that feed the shopping. If one is full just go down the street a little. The downtown Kona area is very compact, so walking... More
