Fantastic view

Nice wine list, service was very good, view is absolutely fantastic. Soft breezes, tiki lights, understated tropical decor, food was very good, husband said fish tasted fishy which is the only reason we didn't give it a 5

This is what a Sunday brunch should be. Spare no expense and not for those on a budget! Fantastic Views, Great relaxed service and fantastic selection of foods and deserts. The foods ranged from Meats to Seafoods and Sushi, fresh squeezed juices and espresso to finish things up and to prevent a food coma! There were some great small portions... More

We were staying at the St. Regis and glad we chose to eat here. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent! Try to eat during sunset hours and dine outside. Of course it was expensive but it's worth it. We chose to order sushi and glad we picked this restaurant for our sushi cravings.

It is the place to go for a glass of champagne or wine to watch the sunset. If you're hungry, there is a limited menu to select from (we had the angus sliders which were delicious).

My teenage son requested dinner at the nice hotel so we made reservations with the concierge at the St. Regis (who was very friendly and knowledgeable). The Kauai Grill is closed on Mondays so we opted for the Makana Terrace. I had to push our reservations out because the zipline tour took much longer than expected. I called the concierge... More

The only thing I am VERY happy I experienced while eating at Makana Terrace is the view. IT IS STUNNING. All the money would be spent again to see that view. I didn't think the food was that amazing, so my family and I decided we paid for the amazing view instead of the food. I did REALLY enjoy the... More

At the St. Regis Princeville. Excellent meal served on a terrace overlooking the land used as Bali Hai in the movie South Pacific. What's not to like? The service was just okay. They seemed to be overwhelmed and understaffed. The menu was varied and top notch. Highly recommend.

Usually you suffer through a hotel dinner feeling ripped off by the price and not at all satisfied by the food. This place has amazing food. While breakfast can be pricey, you don't have to go for the buffet. Tell them what you want and within reason they will make it. I had eggs and bacon over salad with avocado.... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here on 11 Jan 2015. We had dined here many years ago toward the end of our visit to Kauai (in 1998). Our memories of that fantastic dinner were embellished by this latest dinner here. Even though we had not made reservations until the concierge staff at our nearby resort made them for us... More
