Super Fun Hawaiian Style Pupu’s

We stayed at The Sanctuary and went to Kula’s on the property for happy hour. Over the years, this has been many different restaurants and Kula’s is by far the best incarnation. We sat in the bar and where we created our own platter with $2.00 items including kaulua pig sliders and quesadillas. A... read more

We intended to eat dinner in the restaurant while staying at the adjacent Sanctuary Beach Resort, but so enjoyed the happy hour specials and dining outside at one of the firepit tables we ate their twice instead! The decor is kind of cowboy tiki, if you can imagine that. We enjoyed $3 Kona Longboard drafts and mai tais and it... More

We stayed at Sanctuary Beach Resort and loved it. this is their restaurant, but I thought it was disappointing in comparison to the resort. I really think they need to upgrade the restaurant to match the level of the resort. We were expecting fine dining at this resort, and this did not meet our expectations.

Some of the food on menu was sold out and what I did order ,the cook did not mix garlic in potatoes , said he forgot to... Plates are stained and silverware is the worst I've ever seen at a dinner place. Looked like 8 million people ate of the dinnerware.

Had both lunch and dinner here. Food was very good both times and I felt lunch was very reasonable. Our booth looked at the back side of the bar and didn't really see any other tables with anything better to look at. Seemed a little dated.

We were recommended to by our hotel. We ordered coconut shrimp, red snapper, and fish tacos. The red snapper was short on the mango salsa, the fish tacos sort on fish, but the coconut shrimp was quite good. However, the service was not great. The server, did not offer any water, he was very slow to pick up used plates... More

Great atmosphere on the patio and decent service but the food was could have been much better ... If it wasn't for the location at the hotel and the fact that we had small children, we would have been really disappointed!

We have had dinner here 4 times, once with a 4 month old baby, and have found Kula Ranch to be very nice..... with the exception of almost being run over by someone speeding around the corner at night in a golf cart!!!! Before we even walked through the front door..... which was no fault of the restaurant! Anyway, I... More
