Watch the sunset and have an island beverage...alcohol or not...live music and the gorgeous view. Some dancing when we were there too. Great place to unwind after your flight!

“Fabulous view, expensive food, meh service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

If you can get over self-absorbed, preoccupied service and offensively overpriced food, definitely come here for the view and ambience. They built this noisy, smelly tourist trap on one of the best spots on this coast. The beauty of the view in that spot, a former local favorite fishing hole, is undeniable. And at least they try to serve quality food and give local musicians a place to perform at sunset. If they could just get their staff to care as much about their customers as they do their gossip and drama this restaurant might be first class someday.

“Authentic experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Made a dinner reservation as couldn't get in the night before as very busy.
Had a gorgeous table at the beachfront. Service was attentive and prompt. The food was ok if not a little overpriced but this was made up for by the glorious ambience created by live music, flame torches, sand beneath our feet and an unbelievable sunset. Staying in Waikoloa most restaurants are either part of hotels and resorts or members of a chain. This was a truly unique and local experience within walking distance of major resorts. It should be a 'must do' when staying in Waikoloa. Book for an early dinner, about 5:30, to enjoy your meal during the dusk and sunset.

“Amazing Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This was a short walk down the beach from our hotel and we loved it! The fish and chips were incredible as was everything else we ordered from here. From food to drinks, this is island dining at it's best. Excellent and friendly staff as well. Can't wait for our next visit!

“I'm a huge FAN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Imagine sitting right on the ocean front in a comfortable deck chair. With palm trees swaying over your head. Quick service, excellent food and drinks at very reasonable prices. They have live music at night that was very pleasant. Also fire tables and tiki torches. The snorkeling off the beach is great as well. I understand from the locals that they had a ruff start when they opened but they sure have it going great now. This is my favorite place on the island for food and view!
