Fodor's Review

Across the street from the Kona Inn Shopping Village, in Kailua Village, this upstairs cantina is a nice perch for enjoying nachos and margaritas (try the hibiscus margarita) on a lazy afternoon, or to watch the passersby below on Alii Drive. The main entrées are mediocre, but the chips, salsa, and ceviche might just hit the spot. At 5 pm, the banyan tree across the street is filled with hundreds of chirping birds, a veritable happy hour in bird land.
