Kaiuki: A Wonderful Meal in Hana
Kaiuki was one on my favorite meals during our most recent trip to Maui in October 2015. We were staying at the Travassa and decided to try their on site restaurant inside of venturing off property as we had been doing. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner daily.
We arrived a bit after the restaurant opened for dinner. We didn't have reservations but they still seated us right away at a nice table with a view of the property. Our waiter came by soon after we were seated with some bread and menus. We decided to order a bottle of champagne with our dinner(we didn't need to be able to drive as we were staying on property); a nice Rose'. We spent some time perusing the menu before settling on an entree; there was so much to choose from that sounded amazing. I chose the Ahi Tuna and my wife chose the filet mignon.
We enjoyed the tasty, warm foccacia bread and the assortment of flavored butter than came with it. Our champagne was quite nice and a clean, crisp flavor (we wound up finishing the whole bottle which made for some slow walking back to our room later that night). When our entrees arrived I was very happy with the presentation; very well done. I loved my tuna; nice and rare how I like it to be. I enjoyed every single bite until there was no more on the plate. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her meal. Her meat was flavorful and I loved stealing a bite of it myself. She loved the onion rings on top of the meat and the mashed potatoes (which I helped her finish).
After such an amazing meal; we definitely wanted to see if dessert could exceed or expectations. We chose to split the duo of creme brulee; which was a traditional creme brulee and a pineapple creme brulee. The creme brulle were in two separate bowls and were very good. Both were creamy with a hard, crunchy sugar top. I liked both of the flavors but my wife preferred the traditional over the Pineapple.
This was a delicious meal that really surprised me. I loved the decor, the service and the food. We would definitely come back here for dinner even if we were not staying at the Travassa.Add to your Trip Planner
Wow Wow Lemonade: Best Lemonade Ever!
The name says it all with this place...Wow Wow! My wife found this place and I am so glad she did. Both my wife and I love drinking lemonade;especially when it is hot outside. This place is known for making handcrafted lemonade from locally grown ingredients in a variety of flavors.
This place is located in a strip mall in Kihe; you kind of have to look for it as it blends in with the other shops. The place is small but the line can be long for their delicious lemonade. A large board above the counter has all the flavors of lemonade they have available that day. There are many tasty varieties such as: Classic lemonade, Mango, Lychee Strawberry and watermellon Basil. We decided since it was the beginning of our trip to purchase their reusable, glass mason jar instead of a plastic disposable container. We decided on the 24 ounce jar; it also comes in a32 ounce as well. Refills would then be cheaper each time we purchased lemonade.
During our stay in Maui; we visited this place at least 10 times to enjoy their delicious lemonade. We loved that each order was made right in front of us. Each glass of lemonade was delicious with just the right balance of tartness to sweetness. I wish we could crack their secret to this lemonade so we could make it at home but we haven't succeeded yet. Guess we will just have to get back to Maui really soon for some more.

Shaka Pops: Fresh Ice Pops
Shaka Pops became our favorite treat during our last trip to Maui in 2015. My wife had heard about them and actively sought them out. We found them sold roadside in Hana as well as in several markets such as Whaler's General Stores and Whole Foods.
What makes these ice pops unique are that they are handmade in small batches and use only local island ingredients. There is a variety of tropical flavors to choose from. we have tried their Strawberry Limeade, POG, Lava Flow and the Mango. We loved the Lava Flow best of all. It is a delicious coconut milk ice pop with strawberry puree on top and in the center of the pop. So amazingly good.Add to your Trip Planner
Mama's Fish House: Mama knows her seafood .. its a Maui Must do
We always have at least one meal here .. the seafood is so fresh and I assure you if you like seafood this will be a great visit. Its so fresh it had posted who caught each type of fish that day ... wow now that's fresh. We've had so many lovely meals here ... and are going back very soon ... cann' t wait.
as for price ... Its Hawaii .. not much cheap ... so I tell my husband to not even tell me the cost. But it's not some crazy expensive place and not gourmet where the presentation is more impressive than the food. The calamari is excellent .. well everything here is always top notch. The beach here Is lovely and very close there is a fence of surf boards that make nice pics ... ohhh and right there is a stone wall that is gorgeous and make nice pics. make reservations early .. they book up days ahead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Favorite Dish: this is our all time fav for maui ..everything is good If you love seafoodAdd to your Trip Planner
Humuhumunukunukuapua'a: Wonderful Romantic Dinner
Humuhumunukunukuapua’a is a restuarant at the Grand Wailea resort named after the state fish of Hawaii and yes I can say its name. Most people call it Humu as it is much easier to pronounce. This restaurant has been voted the most Romantic in Wailea for several years running and we both wanted to check it out after seeing some good reviews online.
We booked our reservation for 5:30 pm as we wanted to have a nice waterside table for the sunset views. We arrived a few minutes early and were then seated promptly at 5:30 at a nice table for two on the lagoon edge. From the moment we arrived I loved the look and vibe of this place. The restaurant is a Polynesian thatched roof building that seems to float on the million gallon salt water lagoon filled with fish. It took some time before we perused the menu because we were taking in all the fish of the lagoon as well as the sculptures that rose out from the lagoon water.
The menu has a nice selection of meat, fish, seafood, pork and chicken items all with a bit of Polynesian/Hawaiian flair. It was hard to narrow down a choice; as everything sounded so delicious. I finally settled on the Hoisin and Pear Braised Kobe Short Ribs; I really enjoy good short ribs. My wife chose their Surf & Turf for her entree. We decided to forgo appetizers as to save room for our dinner . On the table was some interesting purple rolls in a basket made from taro flour which were very good and warm.
Our food arrived rather quickly and was presented beautifully. I loved my short ribs; so tender and the sauce was so tasty. The only thing I would complain about is the portion was smaller than I expected it to be. On the other hand, my wife's meal was a huge portion of Lobster tail and filet Mignon. I had to help her finish her meal as she was more than full after the tail and a bite of her filet. This was an awesome meal indeed and I was glad we ventured to this resort to try it out; the reviews were spot on.
The view here is great of the beach and the sunset. We watched the torch lighting ceremony that occurs nightly which is always fun to watch no matter what island you are visiting. We had some amazing color changes in the sky during our meal which only enhanced the great atmosphere and food. Our waitress Christine was amazing; so friendly and nice; we even had a free dessert of Humu pie courtesy of her which was incredibly good.Add to your Trip Planner
Mokapu Market: Good Quick Serve Food but at Resort Prices
Mokapu Market is a quick service food option/market located in the Andaz. Hurricane Ana was upon the island and it was extremely windy and raining outside so we chose to grab some lunch here instead of venturing outside in search of food.
The place is set up like a market with prepared foods, snacks, beverages and candy for sale. They also have made to order food options as well. They had a small menu with flat breads, sandwiches, soups and salads to choose from. I decided to have their sliced steal pannini and my wife had the Margarita flat bread. It was typical overpriced resort food but decent enough considering we didn't have any other options.
We laced our order and had a seat at one of the many picnic tables. When our food was ready; it was brought right to our table. The sandwich was good not great considering the high price of it. My wife liked her flatbread but said it was just okay. In a pince we'd eat here but not when there are better options available.Add to your Trip Planner
Longhi's (Wailea Location): Better Service than Food
Our first night in Wailea we wound up at Loghi's after a bit of shopping at the Shops at Wailea. Longhi's is one of three restaurants located in this shopping area. We had eaten at their location in Lahaina so we figured it would be just as good.
Upon arriving at the restaurant it was a bit of a mess. No one was at the hostess station and we waited some time before someone came along asking if we needed help. After we said we wanted a table for dinner, he said oh some one will be along and left. Strange...but we waited and were finally shown to a table for two and given menus.
Our waitress Quiana appeared and took our drink order while explaining some of the specials for the evening. After perusing through the long listing of pasta, seafood, meat and chicken entrees I decided on the Ahi prepared island style. My wife chose their Seafood Risotto. While we waited along came a plate of tomato and jalapeno bread which was sort of a pizza bread resembling a Sicilian pie. The tomato one was good but the jalapeno was too spicy.
Our waitress arrived rather quickly with our entrees and the looked rather good. My tuna was good but not what I expected. It was a cold presentation which was not mentioned on the menu. It was tasty and good but threw me off. My wife was not happy with her meal at all. The Lobster meat in the risotto was very good but the sauce and risotto itself were overly salted. I tried a bite of the risotto and needed half a glass of iced tea to get the salt taste out of my mouth..yuck. My wife ate the Lobster and left the rest since she was just too tired to complain.
Would I give this place another try...maybe but we'd order differently. The best part was the friendly and attentive service. And the next day at our resort for breakfast; our waitress Quiana was our waitress again. Wow, that woman works hard.Add to your Trip Planner
Cheeseburger Island Style (Wailea Location): Good Lunch
Cheeseburger Island Style is one of four restaurants located at the Shops in Wailea. We had lunch here on two occasions during our 2014 trip; once after some time on the beach and another with our friends Bob and Barbara who live locally. As the name implies; the focus food wise here is Burgers. They serve brekfast, lunch and dinner here.
The vibe here is very casual which is perfect for me. The restaurant is a nice size with a good bar area. The menu has an array of different cheeseburgers, sandwiches, appetizers and salads with a bit of Island Flair. They have a nice drink menu full of tropical libations, beer and wine to choose from. Drinks can be served in keepsake glasses for an additional fee if you'd like a glass as a souvenir of your trip.
On our first visit I chose the Pork Sandwich(the waitress said it was her favorite) which was amazing; the best pork I have ever had. It was juicy, flavorful and had this salty brine to it that was just so good. My wife chose some cheeseburger bites with onion rings which she really enjoyed. For drinks I had my Favorite; a Mai Tai and my wife had her favorite; a Lava Flow. Both drinks were very good and priced much cheaper than the resorts.
Our second visit here was for lunch with our friends Bob & Barbara. I had the Ahi sandwich while everyone else had the Fish and Chips. Again, I loved my food. Great sandwich with good flavor. Everyone enjoyed their Fish and Chips and I even helped my wife finish her portion.

Ka’ana Kitchen: Excellent Breakfast
My wife and I enjoy a nice, large breakfast while on vacation. With Busy lives at home it is not often we can enjoy a good breakfast except on weekends. Ka’ana Kitchen was our choice for breakfast while staying at the Andaz (they also serve dinner here as well). This restaurant believes in the farm to table experience and the food is supplied from only local farmers; which I appreciate. The restaurant itself is a large space with both indoor and outdoor seating. Simple décor and an open concept in deign give this a nice relaxing vibe. Most days we chose to enjoy the outdoor patio for breakfast but there were two days we chose inside due to the heat/inclement weather
Every morning we started our day with breakfast here. We were always greated warmly and asked our seating preference. The menu has a large sampling of a la carte items as well as two types of buffet options to choose from. The first buffet choice is the Ka’ana Pantry ($28 a person or free for Diamond Status Hyatt guests); which includes fruit, eggs, cured meats & cheeses, bread and pastries, as well as some house made specialties. This option includes a choice of one side dish from the menu as well as orange juice, apple juice, POG or coffee as your beverage.
The second buffet option is the Breakfast Experience ($45 a person; it was $15 for us being Diamond Status with Hyatt). We chose the Breakfast Experience everyday as it was full of some amazing choices: made to order waffles and pancakes with an assortment of toppings and choice of coconut or pure maple syrup, various egg dishes, potato, thick cut bacon, sausages, pastries, breads, fruit, cheeses, yogurt, cereals, Asian specialties, breakfast sandwiches and fresh juice prepared by a mixologist.
Every day we enjoyed sampling something new as well as enjoying some of our favorites. My wife adored their pancakes and said they were on par with her Grandmother’s which to here are the best. She had a few varieties but loved the caramel chip pancakes the best with some tasty maple syrup. The bacon here was hands down the best bacon I have had anywhere and my wife agrees. The breakfast potatoes were prepared several different ways during our stay and were amazingly good. The Asian offerings were delicious; the steamed buns, rice mixes and vegetables were deliciously good. The freshly made, warm, sugared donuts were unbelievably good..absolutely melt in your mouth. The juices from the Mixologist were incredibly fresh and tasty. There was not a thing on the buffet that wasn’t good.
The service here is as incredible as the food. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home and happy. Every morning we were greeted warmly and given our choice of available tables. The staff is a friendly, fun bunch and we had a good time chatting na djoking with them. One waiter even played a prank on my wife and scared her but it was all good fun and we laughed until we cried. There wasn’t a single need that wasn’t met; they are top notch. I would recommend to anyone staying in the area to try this place for breakfast; you will be happy you did.Add to your Trip Planner
Morimoto's: Excellent Birthday Dinner
Morimoto's is a celebrity chef restaurant on the property of the Andaz in Wailea. I'm not normally a fan of celebrity chef restaurants; both my wife and I decided to give it a try for her Birthday Dinner.
The hotel made us 6pm dinner reservations which would be perfect to catch the sunset. When we checked in at the hostess station they greeted us warmly and wished my wife a Happy Birthday which was a nice touch.
We were shown to a nice table with a good view of the sunset and handed menus. As we were perusing the extensive menu our waitress came over with two glasses of complimentary champagne for my wife's Birthday (again, nice touch). After quite some time we finally were ready to order (the menu has so much to choose from it is hard to narrow things down). My wife chose the Maui Onion soup for her appetizer and the whole roasted lobster ‘épice’ for her entree. I chose their Morimoto bone marrow for an appetizer and the Chef's combination sushi platter. My wife convinced me to try a Japanese uni roll as well.
As we waited for our appetizers we sipped our champagne and watched the beautiful sunset. Wow, I really loved it here; the atmosphere was amazing and I loved being outside. Our appetizers arrived shortly thereafter and looked amazing. My bone marrow was a large portion and incredibly good. My wife's soup had a presentation element: a bowl with a caramelized onion was presented on the table. They then poured the broth onto the onion from an ornate tea pot. finally a Parmesan crisp was added on top. Wow, very nice presentation. My wife liked the soup but said it wasn't the best she has had probably due to the soup stock being veal. The parmesan crisp though was a hit for her.
Entrees were the real show stopper of the meal. My wife's Lobster was presented beautifully with a garam masala and a side of lemon crème fraîche. Needless to say she loved every bite and even gave me a piece to try which was amazing. The spices were incredible. My chef's combination sashimi platter looked like a work of art; almost to pretty to eat. The fish was arranged in decorative pieces on top of a mountain of shaved ice in a round bowl. It was amazingly fresh, tasty and delicious. It was so much fish; I couldn't finish it all. The Japanese Uni roll was a surprisingly good treat. I had never had uni before and my wife loves it and told me if I was to try it..this is where I should have it. God, she was right. The flavor was buttery, creamy and just yum for lack of a better word. I will definitely have this again in the future.
Now on to dessert...we were both pretty full but decided to share a dessert as it was my wife's birthday. We decided to share the homemade doughnuts. This part is amusing: My wife's back was to the kitchen so she didn't see our waitress coming to the table with the dessert that had a lit candle on top. two steps from the table the candle blows out and the poor woman went back to lite it again. The dessert arrived with a Happy Birthday and my wife blew out her candle. This was an amazing dessert. Six pillowy light doughnuts covered with cinnamon sugar were in a bowl. Next to them were three dipping sauces:waialua chocolate, sake caramel, apple banana cheesecake. These were absolute heaven; so soft and sweet plus the dipping sauces were amazing.
This was an amazing dinner and I was so glad we came here. The service and food are top notch.Add to your Trip Planner
Leilani's: Delicious Beachside Dinner
We were visited Maui the day of my 40th Birthday My wife had planned for us to have dinner here at Leilani's and had reservations for the start of the dinner hour. We had a long day of shopping, exploring and hanging out with some of my friends who live locally.
The restaurant is located in the Whalers Village overlooking the beach. The restaurant has two floors; the lower level is their casual dining venue(Beach Side Grill) and the upper level is for dinner. We arrived a little early for our reservation but we shown to our table after a five minute wait. Our table was upstairs, overlooking the beach and water below. Absolutely an amazing view of Ka'anapali Beach with both Molokai and Lanai clearly in the distance. At this point I thought that even if the food is crap, the view is worth it.
Our waiter handed us menus(dinner and drink) for us to peruse. As we mulled over the dinner offerings; a basket of warm bread and butter was brought to the table. The menu has a nice selection of food; meat dishes, chicken, seafood and local fish. I was impressed by their use of locally grown and caught ingredients. Our waiter appeared again and we placed our order. I chose the Cracker and Parmesan Dusted Local Fish (can't remember the name of the fish) for my entree with the Iceberg Wedge for an appetizer. Liz chose the Mushroom Ravioli as an appetizer and the Twin Lobster Tails as her entree. As for drinks; I stuck with an unsweetened ice tea(we had way too many drinks at the Hula Grill next door earlier in the day). My wife chose a Mango Iced tea which had fresh Mango puree (nice touch).
As we waited for our appetizers we had some of that delicious warm bread and watched the boats out on the water. Absolutely beautiful view; even if the food was crap (which it wasn't), I'd come here for the view (fortunately the food was excellent). Our appetizers arrived and I was very happy with my choice. The blue cheese dressing was very creamy with chunks of blue cheese throughout. The thick sliced bacon chunks were very good on top. My wife loved her mushroom ravioli. The filling was very good and the sauce was tasty...I only had a bite so she could enjoy the rest herself.
Our entrees arrived about ten minutes after the table was cleared of our appetizers. My fish looked very good but paled in comparison to the bright red, large Lobster Tails on my wife's plate. My fish was good, I enjoyed the flavor but not exactly what I expected. My wife on the other hand was thrilled with her choice....after having a bite of her Lobster I knew why. The Lobster meat was very sweet and delicious. Needless to say, the Lobster was gone very quickly off her plate. Our waiter came by and asked how the meal was; we of course said we hated it (kidding around) with empty plates before us and a big smile on our faces.
As for dessert; their simply wasn't room. Even though it was my Birthday Dinner I couldn't manage another bite and I had already had three birthday cakes already on the trip. I truly enjoyed this meal and loved the casual island vibe. The view is amazing and provided a perfect backdrop for such a special dinner. I will definitely return again.
Favorite Dish: The freshness of the food is what I enjoyed most. My fish wasn't exactly what I expected preparartion wise but it was still very fresh and flavorful. My wedge salad was very good and I do enjoy a good wedge salad. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her food and loved that her ravioli was obviously fresh and not frozen.Related to:

Monkeypod: Better Lunch than Dinner
We ate here twice during our October 2014 trip; once for lunch and then for dinner. We had heard good reviews of this place from our shuttle driver and various employees at the Andaz so we decided to give it a try.
The restaurant is a large size with an outdoor patio and long bar inside. When we came here for lunch it wasn't too busy so there was no wait for a table. The menu here has a little bit of everything; burgers, chicken, fish, pasta and wood fired pizzas. After perusing the menu I wanted to try their fish tacos. My wife chose their Hamakua Wild Mushroom pizza which was a dish that was recommended to her by staff at our hotel. Our waitress here was very nice and kept our unsweetened ice tea constantly refilled which was appreciated as it was such a hot day and we were so very thirsty.
My fish tacos were very tasty but rather small and not in double wrapped tortillas as I would have expected (they were falling apart due to the lack of double wrapper). My wife's pizza was an individual portion but was still very large for one to eat. She didn't finish it but I was happy to help her out and I was glad I did. The pizza was amazingly good with tons of cheese and heaps of mushrooms. We wound up taking two slices wrapped up back to our hotel for later. This was a very satisfying lunch.
Several nights later we came back here for dinner and boy the place was jammed. The bar was a mass of people; so we chose a table instead. We waited a short time for a table; maybe 5 minutes. The dinner menu is very similar to the lunch menu with a few additions. This time I chose the Fresh Island Fish Sandwich which was Mahi Mahi. My wife chose to have pasta; the gnocchi. The food arrived quickly which surprised us due to the busy dining room. My sandwich was definitely overcooked but the thai sauce on the fish made it tolerable. My wife was rather disapointed in her gnocchi; they were more like mashed potato balls that they pan fried. She did like the sauce and the goat cheese in the dish. So dinner wasn't great but we would come back here for lunch.Add to your Trip Planner
Longhi's(Lahaina Location): Great Breakfast
My wife and I were exploring Front Street in Old Town Lahaina and wanted to get some breakfast. My wife had a few places in mind and one of them was Longhi's. We came upon the restaurant and decided to have our morning meal here after checking out their posted menu.
The restaurant is quite deceiving from the outside, size wise. Inside is two large dining areas with more dining space upstairs. I was happy that we were able to get the last table by the large open windows facing the street and ocean beyond. Our waitress(Liz) brought over our menus and asked if we wanted any drinks. I chose an unsweetened iced tea and my wife stuck with ice water.
The breakfast menu had a nice variety of egg dishes, pancakes, french toast and breakfast pastry to chose from. After mulling over my choices I decided to have their Grand Marnier French Toast with real Vermont Maple Syrup(no fake stuff..yuck) with a side order of their thick cut bacon. My wife ordered a Cinnamon Bun and a side of their home fried potatoes.
I was surprised at how busy the place was and mostly with locals judging by the conversations we overheard. Our food arrived about ten minutes after we ordered and looked delicious. My French Toast was very god indeed; nicely done with a good sweet flavor. I really enjoyed the thick cut bacon; great flavor and cooked to my liking. My wife's Cinnamon Bun astounded us with its large size(not sure why there was butter in a cup with it...guess its a mystery). That Cinnamon Bun definitely hit the spot with my wife, she loves all things cinnamon. The Home fried potatoes were very good; I helped her finish up the portion.
I was really happy with our choice here. The food quality was excellent, the service was friendly and the view was quite nice. I'd definitely return here for another meal.
**They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.**
Breakfast: 7:30 am to 11:30 am
Lunch: 11:45 am to 4:30 pm
Dinner: 4:45 pm to 9:30 pm
Having visited the Longhi's in Wailea; I would definitely say this is the better location and we enjoyed our food more here.
Favorite Dish: The French Toast is very good. I would have it again in a heart beat. The bread was sweet and tasty and cooked just right with a crispy edge to it. It was also good to have Real Maple Syrup; so many places serve that gross fake maple flavored syrup. The potatoes and bacon were also very nice and cooked properly.Related to:

Cheeseburger Island Style: Not such a great breakfast!
We were looking to have breakfast at a different place during this visit and decided to stop here. Actually, we should have gone back to Longhi's. We arrived very early, before they opened and had to wait about 20 minutes before we were seated.
We were seated and handed our menus and asked if we wanted anything to drink. I ordered coffee and an oj. We took a look at the menu and I decided on an omelette and French Toast. Our meal arrived about 10 minutes later and I was so disappointed. My omelette wasn't good at all, my wheat toast barely toasted and the potatoes were horrible. The French toast lacked any flavor and the syrup was watery.
In all fairness, this is a burger joint that also serves breakfast, so maybe the burgers are better than the breakfast? All I know is that we definitely wouldn't make this another breakfast stop, especially with other places in the area.Related to:

Longhi's: Really good food and atmosphere
This restuarnt is located at the Shops at Wailea just a few steps away from our hotel and we ate here twice during our first trip, twice during our second and once during our third trip, that's how good the food and service at this restaurant is. I have no complaints and we have always had good service and good
The restaurant has a really nice open airy feeling to it with some nice tables inside the terraza and tables and booths outside the terraza. There is a really nice bar as well (we did come here that same night for a few drinks).
We were doing some shopping at the Wailea Shops early in the evening when we realized it was time to stop and get something to eat. We walked around looking for a nice place to sit and grab a meal and decided to stop.
As we approached the front we were asked if we had reservations and we told them we didn't. The guy in the front told us to wait a few minutes and that we would have us seated promptly. We did wait more than 5 minutes when we were seated at a nice table in a terraza like area.
The service here was was excellent, our waiter was friendly and very attentive and the "manager/owner" (not sure, he didn't actually tell us) came over to us to personally greet us (he did this to all the tables), which I found to be a really nice touch. The restaurant is not cheap, but not too expensive either. The lunch and dinner menu is quite extensive with some really nice salad, sandwiches, seafood and pasta selections.
We looked over the menu and Ferni decided to have a burger, which they are known for. I was looking for something from the sea, but nothing too filling, so I went with the shrimp of scallops marinara.
As you are waiting for your order to come out the waiter brings over a nice dish full of doughy bread (almost like a pizza) which had a nice light sauce on them. We didn't wait long for our meal to arrive.
Our meals were excellent and we really enjoyed this place so much that we decided to come back the next day for a nice breakfast.
For Breakfast - We arrived at about 9:00 am and the place was already a bit crowded. The guy at the front recognize us from the prior day and greeted us warmly with a "welcome back", we are happy to have you here again today. He personally took us back to the terrazza which is a really nice area and told us to enjoy our meal. Our waitress was quite cheery and promptly came over with water and menus.
The breakfast menu is just as varied as the lunch and dinner menu and it took me a bit to decide what I wanted, but I finally did. I decided on the Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes with the caramelized macadamia nut topping and Ferni of course had the steak and eggs.
Favorite Dish: We ate here twice during our first trip, once for dinner and once for breakfast and our choices of food where excellent. The shrimp of scallops marina was really good, not too much sauce and the pasta was cooked perfectly. The shrimps were large and cooked perfectly as well. Ferni said his burger was excellent, juicy and cooked just right, he said his steak and eggs were just as good. My pancakes were slamming, the caramelized macadamia nuts were perfect and the vermont maple syrup always makes any pancakes taste yummier.Related to:
