We had Korean Chicken and it was delish! For some reason I thought it was called Korean ribs or something like that but either way it was full of flavor and finger licking good!

565 apparently caters to the very local crowd. The owner seems uncomfortable with tourists. The restaurant would probably have a tough time passing a health department inspection. Sorry for the negative review, but we rely on the honest views of Trip Advisor extensively and felt we had a duty to offer our candid opinion.

While on Lanai, there are definitively few places to eat. Cafe 565 was just average with their food. Nothing too good but not bad. We used this as a quick place for a bite to eat in the middle of our Jeep adventure. Overall, the place was clean and the service was good. The food was just nothing to write... More

WE have been to Lanai 3 times and we are trying to eat at all the local restaurants in town. It was mid-afternoon (3 PM) and we wanted to have a Plate Lunch that would serve as our main meal that day. It was almost closing time. They were very gracious and took our order. Our food was prepared and... More

Don't be tempted to eat there, go to the grocery store and buy a sandwich. We stopped for lunch. We ordered a sub to share and seated outside. After waiting for 15 minutes and listening to constant arguing from the kitchen I went in to check on our food. I was told the cook "forgot our order". After another 10... More

Aloha Peakstar, Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review. I apologize that you had to wait for so long for your sandwich when you were so hungry. I also apologize for the service you received from our counter person. She is new and still in training. I'll get after her for talking to locals too... More

We had a great meal at cafe 565. The peanut butter cup calzone was the best dessert we have ever eaten. Family friendly.

The food at 565 was outstanding. We had several meals here and nothing disappointed. Do not be intimidated by the outward appearance. Everything on the menu is delicious and reasonably priced. In particular, the calzone and pizza was out of this world. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.

Went here one afternoon looking for a cheap lunch alternative. Its located in the center of Lanai city. Not going to sugarcoat it but we went in with low expectations and were blown away. Not only was the menu expansive, the prices were dirt cheap, especially considering this is Lanai. I got a pepperoni calzone which was enough to feed... More
