Call it dinner and a show: As sunset approaches, diners at this beloved oceanfront restaurant start leaping from their tables to pose for pictures on the grass-covered promontory, while nearby surfers try to catch one last wave. The genial waiters are as used to cameras being thrust upon them as they are reciting specials featuring local ingredients—a staple here long before “farm to table” became a catchphrase. But there are other good reasons to dine here, whether you’re splurging on dinner or sampling the more affordable lunch. Among them: the coconut corn chowder, with local kale, tomato, and lemongrass; the house ceviche of fish, prawns, and scallops in a citrus-lilikoi marinade; and the grilled fresh catch with citrus brodo, Parmesan polenta, and candied fennel.
