The view from the terrace is amazing. While overlooking the ocean, its also overlooking a Koi pond, which is very cool. We chose this restaurant twice, and we chose it each time because it was raining.

The food was very good (everyone was very happy every time), the service was good and the prices were mildly reasonable - for what is a very expensive resort.

Most importantly, the restaurant was relaxing. No one was rushing you, no one was pushy; it had a true Hawaiian vibe.

While all the food was good, the burger was probably the best.

Everything you could possibly want and then some. Lots of variety. Beautifully presented and delicious. Lox and Everything bagels (nova salmon), eggs benedict, eggs any way, omelet station, steel cut oatmeal, local delicious fruit. hot and cold choices of waffles, pancakes, french toast - all deliciouls. Really good Hawaiian bread pudding. Beautiful gorgeous room and view. They keep large birds out with screening but small ones still get in - not really a big deal. Some days it gets busy and you might have a ten or fifteen minute wait max. Get the buffet as part of your room package - only 25 extra per room per day for two people! otherwise you will pay almost forty dollars PER PERSON daily. Very expensive. It is good to have a place to go in the morning before you start your day rather than wasting precious vaca time driving around the island to another restaurant. Only issue I had is on last day it was very hot and humid out and restaurant was very warm - they need supplemental A/C on those days. Also, listing is WRONG- not open for dinner. They only have breakfast and lunch.

Buffet breakfast with omelet/egg station and about everything else you can ask for. They do a very good job of presenting variety each day. Service very good. Menu option available too.

Had lunch at the terrace today. Very nice place with swans swimming around. Great view of the ocean in the background. Had the pepper steak salad (gluten free) and it was really good. Salads are around 25$ each. Would recommend.
