Here, as you can tell, I didn't follow anyone's advice--to my regret!
Nothing but misses:
Wailula Marina Restaurant in Waimea
Lovely location with tables on a patio overlooking the river and a favorite of our B & B hosts, who always order the pork chop. We didnt. But what we had was mediocre. Terrible salad bar. We went after trying to get into the Bull Shed, but unwilling to wait 30 to 45 minutes.
Neide's Brazilian Restaurant in Hanalei
I wanted to like this Mexican-Brazilian place. I was happy that my ensopado had real chicken (thighs) on the bone instead of boneless breasts but it was still pretty dull. Bills Mexican plate was better but still pretty ordinary. Nothing really wrong with it. Just nothing really good.
