Lonely Planet review
Yes, it’s a bit touristy, but this place actually does a decent job at being a Western saloon, perfect for that paniolo in you (that’s a cowboy hereabouts, partner). There’s atmospheric seating options both on the veranda out front and the porch out back. There’s also a little paniolo menu ($6.50). Note the kau kau tin lunch, which is a bit of local history. It hails from the tradition of workers taking lunch in a stackable tin box with three separate containers. Fill it with shrimp tempura, teriyaki and BBQ meat along with rice and kimchee ($10.95) or buy one as a souvenir in the gift shop ($30).
