Eating at Tidepools pretty much encapsulates what people come to Hawaii for. The restaurant is located in a collection of "huts" on stilts over a lagoon full of koi. There is a waterfall; there is the Pacific. The walls are open so you can feel the breeze (consider bringing a light sweater). The service is attentive.
I would say the food was "good" rather than "great." I had a crab cake, which was fine and risotto, which was very good. My husband had lobster bisque and the Hawaiian Catch featuring Ono. He enjoyed both, but wasn't blown away. We would definitely go back because the atmosphere is unbeatable.
