Guests will enjoy warm and welcoming service, ocean front views, live entertainment 7 days a week and of course the chance to see live Manta Rays feeding in the ocean directly infront of the restaurant. Rays is also the best spot to see a brilliant and romantic sunset while you gather with friends to enjoy hand crafted cocktails, pupus or dinner.

Our meal was adequate. The $36 "Hot Pot" was very good but too salty for my taste. My husband had the "Catch of the Day" -$34. This was very good also, but can't they give you a tiny bit more?
A Tablespoon of cooked greens and one-quarter cup of Yukon mashed potatoes hardly need to be mentioned on the menu.
No rays were to be seen at 8 pm.

The appetizers were delicious and the wine fantastic! You can't beat the views at sunset. Also we saw Manta Rays swimming in the bay after it got dark! Lovely evening!

Mothers day buffet was one of the best buffets we have been to in a long time.
Crab legs, Prime rib, poke, desert, everything was awesome.
The only thing they missed the mark on, was the advertising.
Maybe I just missed it, but the $60.00 fee seemed high, but it was last minute and I bit the bullet. Turns out the $60.00 included a 20% gratuity and free flowing Mimosas. To bad, because we had other couples that passed because of the high cost, and in the end, it really was a deal

We love this restaurant. Reserve the firepit table on the ocean. Food is good but expensive. Great atmosphere.

I like to visit here whenever I'm in town. A little pricey but food, appetizers & drinks are very good. Located inside the Sheraton Kona, this restaurant is always fun to visit. Beautiful views and outdoor setting. Usually entertainment in the evenings
