We were in Kauai and our kids made reservation at Hukilau for dinner. The atmosphere was very nice and the food was delicious. One of the best dinner during our week on the island.

I had read many favorable reviews of this restaurant on TA . It sounded like a restaurant we would enjoy. I made reservations through Open Table two weeks ahead for 5:30 PM on the lanai. It is located in Kauai Beach Resort in Kapaa behind the Coconut Market Shopping Center. We were staying in Princeville and it took us about... More

We asked some locals for recommendations for dinner and everyone said the Hukilau Lanai. We had reservations and were seated promptly. We were seated outside with a view of the lovely grounds. The focaccia with oil and balsamic vinegar was delicious as was the Wally's salad. One in our party said that the filet mignon with wine sauce was the... More

Everything was excellent and the ambiance was lovely. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion. Try the sweet potato ravioli.

Came cross this restaurant by chance when visiting coconut grove shopping plaza. Wow what brilliant food and such good choices on the menu. The pork tendorloin was so tasty and can also recommend the chicken and fish served with a creamy curry sauce, both dishes were very tasty. Service was excellent and server was very attentive. This restaurant offers extremely... More

This is the first dinner we had in Kauai, located in the Kauai Coast Resort hotel in Kapaa. Was seated immediately, and had an amazing table outside with a view of the lush grounds of the resort. The appetizer was Ahi Nachos. Sounds weird but it was phenomenal. Both of our fish entrees were top notch in preparation and presentation.... More

We ate here twice in our week in Kauai, and only regret that they were closed on Monday, our last day. We ate here on our anniversary and it was the perfect place. The mixed seafood grill is to die for. We heard from one the locals that this is the best restaurant on the island, and we agree!

Best in Kauai! Go early for the tasting menu with complimentary wines. Or order off the menu. Ask to sit outside. Ahi nachos are super delicious!

My wife and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary with dinner at the Hukilau Lanai, which we chose based on Trip Advisor ratings. The restaurant is off of the lobby of the Kauai Coast Resort, with an open air setting looking out at beautiful tropical gardens and the ocean. The restaurant setup is nothing fancy but it is very comfortable.... More

This was the best dining experience we had on Kauai. The food was so fresh, well prepared, with fantastic flavour combinations. Everything we had was excellent. Service was flawless. A great place for a special occasion, must try the Ahi poke nachos. Wow ~!
