Lonely Planet review
The prices might deter you but, otherwise, this oceanfront gem is virtually faultless. The service is gracious and the menu is practically a circle-island tour of the best local ingredients. Chef de Cuisine Thepthikone 'TK' Keosavang adds Thai/Asian touches, eg tom yum soup featuring Hawaiian ono (wahoo) and Hilo hearts of palm. Standouts include the roasted beet and heirloom tomato salad and 'Sustainable Seafood Trio,' three types of fish from the Kona coast.
