This is one of the only restaurants in town with prices and atmosphere comparable to the splurge restaurants at the Kohala Coast resorts. Dinner offerings sometimes fall short, considering the prices, but the pupus (appetizers) and small plates are usually a good bet. The dining lanai overlooks the rocks at the ocean's edge, and at night you can almost touch the marine life swimming below. Relax with cocktails for two and feast on fresh local seafood; the certified Angus beef is a cut above USDA Choice. If you're on a budget, Huggo's on the Rocks, next door, is a popular outdoor bar in the sand, and the burgers are pretty darn good, too. It's also Kailua-Kona's hot spot for cocktails and live music.

We had Christmas dinner here, after having it recommended on the Fodor's site. We couldn't have been happier with it. The place is laid back and comfortable, with great views of the sunset. There was a minor inconvenience prior to seating, as we were told to wait for a table, and then when I checked back to see if we'd be called, was advised to check back on my own! Once past that, our table was right on the rail overlooking the water, our waiter
[Dick] was accomodating, our food was good [particularly the Ahi which both daughters ordered] and the views couldn't get much better. We would go back there in a heartbeat.
