For more than 2 decades, this classy restaurant has been collecting accolades for its perfectly executed island cuisine, gracious service, and great wine list. The striking decor—splashy artwork by local painter Jan Kasprzycki, pressed-tin ceilings, and warm lighting—creates an appealing atmosphere. The bar, despite lacking an ocean view, is among the busiest in town and often features special pricing. The menu hasn’t strayed much over the years; fans will still find their favorites: the prawn-stuffed blue corn chile rellano, the aromatic Kona coffee–roasted rack of lamb, and memorable triple berry pie. If you’re planning a special event or a large party, you can book a private room and design your own menu with the chef.
