Fodor's Review

The vinelike hau tree is ideal for sitting under, and it's said that the one that spreads itself over this beachside courtyard is the very one that shaded Robert Louis Stevenson as he mused and wrote about Hawaii. Today diners are still enjoying the shade and the view at this romantic beachside hotel restaurant. The restaurant is known for its rich, classic eggs Benedict for breakfast, papaya chicken salad at lunch, and workmanlike fresh catch of the day or steak at dinner. Dinner entrée portions are quite large. During the day you get a nice sightline of bodies beautiful prancing on Kaimana Beach.

Watch the sunset under the Hau tree

So few restaurants that are truly on the beach, strange for an island. This established restaurant is a favorite of mine when I want to dine in open air and gaze at the ocean or watch the sunset. Food can be inconsistent, but the service is always good. Live island music in the lounge adds to the atmosphere.
