Billing itself as a "café and wine bar," this restaurant is rather unique, especially given its central Waikiki location. The menu is equal parts Japanese and Continental, while the décor is several steps up from anything else in the area. However, the prices are low. The menu items range from scallop terrine ($8) to Italian pasta and fried garlic rice. The restaurant is tucked away in an upstairs corner, which makes it feel somewhat private. There is a bright and cheerful dining room and a breezy, shaded balcony.
Tried the fried garlic and ahi appitizers which were great. Entree portions were on the small side, but everything was tasty. I recommend the bouillabaisse which comes with large pieces of shrimp, crab and scallops along with saffron rice. Try the creme brulee - very tasty and eye-catching - served with fresh fruit slices.
The waiters were not very attentive and slow to refill our drinks. They left us with empty dishes for 15 minutes while they cleared tables that had already left. Very poor service.
