    Best dinner we’ve had in Maui yet. The ahi bruschetta was out of this world. Scallops and pork shank were beyond good. Would highly recommend this spot. Right on the water. Waves were practically hitting our table. Such an awesome vibe. Can’t wait to go back!

    We love eating here. BEST breakfast on the island, we feel. Inventive dishes. Delicious assembly of items to create great breakfast and lunch options. Too many to choose from! From the moment you enter you are greeted and welcomed in warmly. And the service was over the top -- Dehlia was wonderful. Beyond just getting us what we needed/wanted, she was attentive to ensuring we knew the options, specials, etc. AND we weren't aware of the dinner menu -- so she showed us the menu and will be back for dinner! The location can't be beat -- right on the water. It is a great place to go for a meal before doing your big grocery shop at Safeway :-)
