Sarento’s at the Top of the Ilikai

Hubby and I spent our 30th wedding anniversary at Son’z Maui at Swan Court and wanted to eat the filet mignon meatballs again without flying to Maui so we made plans to eat at Sarento’s at the Top of the Ilikai, a sister restaurant of Son’z. We ordered two appetizers, the calamari fritti($9) and smoked … Continue »

I admit it. I am a carnivore. I like a good steak and had never tried Wolfgang’s Steakhouse at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center so decided to go there for Restaurant Week.

On October 31 , hubby wanted to eat blackened ahi with garlic butter sauce at California Beach Rock n Sushi. We drove to the restaurant and fed the parking meter and walked to the restaurant.
