Great breakfast buffet and while expensive, is worth at least one visit. Eat outside with views of the ocean.

Perfect evening view on the bay. Not overcrowded. Reasonable prices. Portions are just ok not to overeat (but smaller than average portion in the common American restaurant). They charged our card price of the dinner +20% without previous notice. So probably the tips are included in the amount of those 20%... This was the only downside.

When we walked in the first morning, the maître d' told us it would be the most beautiful breakfast we ever have, and he was correct on the view. As for the buffet, it was good but not huge and they didn't rotate items enough. Usually with hotel buffets, if you stay more than 4 days, you will start seeing... More

We stayed at the St. Regis during our trip and I just looked forward to waking up every morning and having breakfast with the most amazing view. I loved their french toast made with Hawaiian bread. Cant wait to have it again in 2015 :) ! Have been craving it all year!

Service and location terrific. We were there on a rainy day for lunch. The cost per entree was about 20. Average food. Not bad - just not great and not worth cost.

While we've been to Kauai many times, it was our first time staying on the north side and we were excited about this restaurant. First off, the service was very slow and very inattentive for a restaurant of this level. We were disappointed throughout the entire meal at the service we received. But we were excited about the menu and... More

While staying at the St. Regis we had the opportunity to have both brunch and Dinner at the Makana Terrace. Everything was high quality ... the brunch in particular was excellent. Make sure to take the opportunity for dinner as the evening views are outstanding!

First, I did use Yelp to find this place. It was our first morning in Princeville after traveling all day before. The time change had us thrown so we were up at 6:30AM and starving. So I looked on yelp for breakfast and this came up as open by 6:30. Perfect. Drive over there and that's when we found it's... More

The breakfast buffet was great, lots to chose from and everything was very fresh. The views are amazing. We only had an opportunity to do breakfast because for dinner the restaurant was closed. Service was great as well. Very well recommended but be prepare to spend $38 per person for the buffet.

We came here for the Sunday brunch in early Nov. and found it to be a nice experience. We made reservations well ahead of time but when we arrived they couldn't find our name. They did accomodate us immediately and we were glad we arrived at the beginning of brunch. There are many stations and we took advantage of the... More
