    Reservation was on time by the ocean. The service was absolutely outstanding and the meal was the best I’ve had in the 4 months we’ve been on island. I had truffle gnocchi and fish of the day. Yummy!

    Always need a reservation or the wait can be long or not available. The cocktails are always great from the menu list. We love the oyster shooters but prefer Honu version with bloody May mix rather than ponzu. It’s still worth a try! The special blue marlin fish of the day was great and as described re texture and flavor. The fried calamari was a real breaded mistake that my wife could not consume more than 4 pieces. The lava cake dessert was excellent but still can’t beat their passion fruit gelato!
