Who Are We?


We are two guys and two girls, who live in Hawaii for about six months of every year. We are all foodies, and love to try new restaurants as well as some old favorites. We first started coming to Hawaii in 2007, and we’ve loved it so much that we decided to make it our second home. When we aren’t in Hawaii, we divide our time between Ohio and the Washington DC metro area.

Having spent so much time here, we are in that narrow position where we aren’t quite tourists, but aren’t quite locals. Therefore, we have some insight into what both groups look for in restaurants. Obviously some restaurants cater to tourists more than others, but there’s a lot of overlap between what locals like and what tourists like.

On this site, we’ll also give you some insight into good places to stay near the restaurants and beaches, so you don’t have to set foot in Hawaii without knowing your travel plans, if you don’t want to. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or comments about anything you see on the site.
