This is the restaurant connected to The Kauai Coast Resort at the Beachboy. It's AMAZING! It's pricey, but you don't feel cheated. The food is top notch, service is spot on, and the location is great. We love it, we always eat here at least once when we come. Make reservations, as it books up quickly!

Beautiful setting, but in a time share hotel, that was kinda weird. Food was good but a bit salty.. Dessert was great. Service was great. Would like to go back at sunset.

We were told by a number of locals about this place and lucky for us it wasn't even a 5 minute walk from the hotel we were staying at. We called in for reservations as we were told it could get pretty busy and even fill up completely. We arrived a few minutes late but they were still happy to... More

The food was absolutely excellent and so was the service. Live music was a bonus and we had a wonderful evening. We won't be staying at the resort again, but we will be eating at the Hukilau Lanai! Everything was absolutely perfect. Mahalo!!

We had dinner twice at Hukilau Lanai while we were in Kauai, both times the food and service were spectacular. We sat on the Lanai, beautiful view of the gardens. I would not hesitate to go back to to this restaurant. I wish there was a restaurant like this one in La Jolla where I live.

I had high expectations for the Hukilau Lanai given the TA reviews, but we found it only average, which was particularly disappointing given the price of the meal. At the outset, I will note that the service was exemplary and professional. We were seated quickly, our server was friendly and informative without being overbearing, and finished plates were removed quickly.... More

The reviews were spot on. I noticed a few people had some concerns about service, but during our trip everything was 5 star. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Wife had the Tasting Menu for $28. She enjoyed everything. I had steak and it was good. For $33 it was about the same price as other places but here it includes a soup or salad and a side. For the price as well as food quality it's probably the best in Kauai. I'm not saying there are not better... More

We ate at the Hukilau Lanai this past Tuesday. We had a 7:45 reservation but got there around 7 as were were hungry and figured we would get a drink. We ended up grabbing a high top table in the bar and decided to just stay there as there was great live Hawaiian music and we had a nice view.... More
