During our recent trip to Kauai, we had two meals here (one lunch, one private dinner). The service was great, and the ambiance (a historic house) can't be beat.

My wife and I had dinner reservations at 6:30, a great time because over the course of the meal we got to watch the sunset. We arrived with enough time to enjoy a Mai Tai featuring the neighboring Koloa rum. For dinner, we had a Caprese salad and the Field greens, both were excellent and beyond traditional with a few...

When you are having a meal at Gaylord's at Kilohana Plantation see if Laurie or Fletcher are working as the bartender at Mahiko Lounge. They make the best fresh farm to glass cocktails, you won't be sorry. Even better if it is a locally made Koloa Rum cocktail. Their creativity in creating their cocktails is amazing!

While grandpa and her parents were rum tasting next door, my two year old granddaughter and I went looking for a little lunch. She was so hungry because we forgot her little snack bag at home in our rush to catch the Kilohana train ride. Gaylords staff was so accommodating, rushing to get us a peanut butter and jelly sandwich... More

Gaylord's is a beautiful restaurant with great service. I booked on Open Table and asked for a quiet table. We were given a very private table overlooking the garden. It was heavenly! I highly recommend!

We did the Sunday Brunch and it was worth the visit. The buffet line is small, but the food is kept fresh and it is well prepared. There are special order items that are ordered from the kitchen. These were also well prepared and worth getting. They have a do it yourself bloody Mary bar that sounded like it would... More

Description
Gaylord's offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Located on the ground floor of the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Seafood Spring Rolls and Organic Greens Salads; Local Fish, Meat and Vegetarian Entrees; and Banana Cream Pie for Dessert! After your meal take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the rum shop or take a ride on the plantation train. Join us at Gaylord's to enjoy the best of what Kauai has to offer in island food and experience. Call for reservations and details on weekly entertainment. Memorable by day...Unforgettable by Night.
