    Walking down the bay front I was drawn into this place because of the lively atmosphere! There was music playing and we were greeted at the entrance by a very enthusiastic staff member! I tried the quesadilla with the drink special, a passionfruit margarita! Yummm!

    A family tradition. Whenever we are on the Kona side we have lunch or dinner here. Nice ocean view. Food can be a bit on the high side.

    Wonderful place to eat when you are in Kailua Kona. Right across the street from the ocean. Good food, good views!
