This place is a really nice place to go for a special dinner. It is partially outside, and the menu is fantastic. Everything we got was to die for. It's not cheap, but for your last night on the island, or a special occasion, it is a really great spot to go. Great music, the sound of the ocean, and... More

Hukilau Lani has great food with many options for everyone. Wonderful atmosphere. We sat by the patio area & there was a nice view. Service was excellent.

Sat at the bar and Sandra took excellent care of us. We started with the house focaccia and oil/balsamic. Ordered the ahi nachos that was awesome. (Tiny cubes of raw tuna and not stringy) Crown filet and pork loin finish. Tender and tasty on both counts. We will return. Yum !

The tasting menu, served between 5:00 and 5:45 is worth a special trip! The five course meal was interesting, very well presented, and comes with wine pairing for each of the courses for $40.- What a bargain! This is a fine restaurant with excellent service, and is justly popular, so call ahead to reserve! Of course the a la cart... More

We booked the Hakilau Lanai based on the good reviews in TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. On arrival we had some anxiety when we realized that the restaurant was attached to a resort as we have had mediocre meals at this type of restaurant but were happy to find out that Hakilau Lanai was the exception. We arrived early as... More

The best meal we've had in Hawaii, the food was perfectly prepared. Add a table looking out on the water and a great wine selection at moderate pricing -- we found this restaurant to be a real gem!

Be aware that if you want to dine here, they're closed on Mondays and get a reservation at least a day before you want to dine. My wife and I had a full multi-course meal from appetizer to desert and coffee. It was exceptionally good. The appetizer was delicious and the fish was great. Very delicious and not at all... More

When we planned our trip to Kauai, we planned to eat here because they focus on using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. We made reservations (and you'll need them!). It's lanai dining, meaning open air, but because the weather was extremely windy, the "weather walls" had to be closed. Their gardens looked fabulous, but you can't fight with Mother Nature. Tent-like... More
