service was slow at the beachfront cafe, but in all fairness, they were packed and they told us up front it would be slow. Cocktails were great, food was very good and the server was kind and helpful. We would go again

If you want more high end beachfront dining, Leilani's is a great option. Steps away from the shopping area, walking distance from many resorts and condos and with covered public parking that is validated with dining or shopping.

We enjoyed Happy Hour in the bar where the tropical drinks were top notch and priced good. We had the fish tacos and fish & chips. They were awesome! We finished our meal off with the Hula Pie and bread pudding. It was so good!...More
