BluWater Grill owner Tanya Phillips, who boasts more than 20 years of fine-dining experience, prepares authentic Hawaiian cuisine, seafood, and steaks in her romantic waterfront restaurant. An extensive menu starts off with small plates—or pupus—such as curried crab cakes with sweet-chili aioli ($13.95) and kālua barbecue-pulled-pork quesadillas ($11.95). A 10-ounce rib-eye steak tempts noses with aromatic garlic au jus and creamy horseradish ($27.95), and tiger prawns invite patrons to break through thin crusts of macadamia nuts before coating teeth in mashed Okinawan sweet potatoes to appall the family dentist ($20.95). BluWater Grill’s barkeeps pour decadent drinks to pair with hot and cold desserts, such as the mango crème brûlée infused with mango purée ($6.95).
Friendly hosts whisk diners to an outdoor table overlooking azure waters and volcanic formations, or to an indoor dining room where they can gaze through windows and into the unblinking eyes of their sentient reflection. BluWater Grill sates appetites seaside throughout the week, as well as during Sunday brunch.
