If you want great food in a relaxed atmosphere, then this is the place to go. They have a 3 piece band playing every night and pleasant whilst eating dinner out under the stars

Of the restaurants in the Outrigger Reef this was our favourite – the best for breakfast too. Very friendly staff, food ok to good for what it was. Nice atmosphere too especially with the live music in the evenings.

Kani Ka Pila has a great mix of pool bar and restaurant and relaxed grill in the evening. They have Hawaiian singers and players every night of the week and whether you're in the restaurant/bar or whether you're sat in the lobby of the hotel or even on your balcony the music takes you off to another place it really...

The bartender was super nice, funny, and interesting. He knew a lot about where to go and what to do in Hawaii and the food and drinks were super tasty!

I ate lunch here two days of my stay. Food was great. It was odd that a fountain drink was $4 with only one refill. BUT... I loved the comfortable outdoor seating. At night, they have live music that fills the lobby. Definitely felt the island vibe!

Friendly staff. Food was good. Service, just a little slow. Liked being able to eat outside and look at all the pretty decor and the small waterfall and pond.

We ate here two times during our stay at the Outrigger Reef. Both times food was good. The menu offers full meals as well as sandwiches and burgers. The wait staff is very friendly and efficient.
