We went here one afternoon for happy hour. The atmosphere, food, and Staff were outstanding. We wound up going back the next night and had another enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend if you are staying in Wailea or Kihei area. Great views and right on the ocean.

This place has the most affordable drinks and food for a happy hour. Both of which were great which just adds to their case of being a happy hour must.

We went here after our intimate beach ceremony and the two of us were treated amazingly by our exuberant waitress Davida. The meal was equally as impressive! My fish was the best I've ever had and my husbands ribs were in abundance and spectacular. Our pupus of calamari and coconut prawns also great. The molten chocolate lava cake for dessert... More

We went there for happy hour and we were not impressed with the food / drinks / prices. Our server / service was quick and friendly, no complaints there. The food was average, nothing special. The view of the ocean was nice with a nice breeze. Atmosphere was good, but tables were a little close to one another and weird... More

We stopped by for happy hour just because we stayed at the connected hotel. The food was tasty and the drink selection was alright. I was satisfied with my experience but if we hadn't been staying "right there" we probably wouldn't have gone but overall positive experience.

Spent a few hours here over happy hour, cheap drinks and pretty tasty sushi. Good view of the beach and a nice place to relax. Service was pretty slow, they could probably double their drink sales if they visited the table a little more often, but I'd go back (and would just order two drinks at a time).

Great atmosphere and good deal price on Happy hours! SErvice is good and the food is so tasty. The restaurant is very expensive tho so I recommend only the happy hour deal if you don t want to spend a fortune for a meal.

My husband and I went here with a relative who lives on Maui. We had a wonderful patio table with an excellent sunset view. Our food was delicious. Our only snafu was our meal was brought before our cocktails even arrived, but our waitress intervened and sent our meals back so we could enjoy our drinks and the view. When... More

The sunsets from this restaurant, which is right on the ocean, was only out shined by the food. We liked the sunsets and food so much we eat there 5 out of our 7 nights. The half price happy hour went great with the sunsets.

The food was about a 3 star but the view of the ocean and rock configurations was way beyond my expectations. The parking was easy and all the folks working at the resort were Aloha friendly.
