Jackie Reys has the freshest fish you’ll ever experience.

The Herb Crusted ONO with Garlic Shrimp service with garlic mashed potables, sautéed veggies, and crispy onions with a lemon caper burr blanc sauce was out of this world!

Their extensive and ever-changing menu is a combination of signature dishes created by the owners, Paul and Angie, Colorado natives who fell in love with Hawaii’s warm weather, packed their bags, and moved to the Islands in 2004. They are both foodies and made their dreams of owning a restaurant in Hawaii come true. You can tell how much they love to serve their guests in everything from the decor to the excellent service and their amazing menu. This is the perfect place to experience great food and old-fashioned hospitality, island style.
