Fodor's Review

This is the newest creation of Jean-Marie Josselin, the renowned chef who brought Hawaii regional cuisine to Kauai in 1990, and it reflects his growth as a chef. The food is very imaginative, with its French, Japanese, and Islands influences, and served with flair in a chic, yet casual, dining room that's tucked away in a nondescript strip mall. The menu emphasizes fresh fish, typically seared and topped with a delectable sauce. Vegetarians will find much to like on the creative appetizer menu, and it's extensive enough to create a small plates meal from such delights as poached scallop ravioli, crispy quail, squash carpaccio, and Korean-style shortribs. Save room for dessert, especially the chocolate crème brûlée and vegan mango cheesecake.
