We love this restaurant. It has great atmosphere and the decor is so inviting. The food is delicious and the service very good. It seems to always be but a short wait for our meal to arrive. Make sure to save room for dessert!

when we arrived at the Marriott and waited for our room to be ready, we were told that the Kalapaki Beach Hut no longer was open (not true - see my review - the Marriott's Kalapaki GRILL was the one that had closed - do not be fooled!!), so we went to Kukui's for lunch. fish tacos were very good....

My husband and I were guests of the Marriott and we tried this place for dinner and had an amazing experience. Our Marriott experience included the "Breakfast Package" and we enjoyed great made-to-order breakfasts served with a smile - five of the six days we were there (we were never told that on Sunday's the Breakfast Package is a reduced...

Last night we went to Kukui's for the Friday night special dinner. My husband had prime rib, and I had fish. Both were delicious. Soup, salad bar, and olive rolls were good too. Atmosphere and service from Michael made this a great date night. A good value for $30 each. We will definitely return!

We ate here 2-3 times at night and just about every day for lunch with their service at the pool. Prices about what you'd expect but the food was always satisfying.

For a resort restaurant, this is pretty a good one. We went there because there were some dollar credit along with our room. But the entire dinning experience was actually quite good. The daily catch was quite fresh. The ribeye is not a traditional one. They cut the entire steak into several pieces, but it was good. More importantly, when... More

We LOVE the hotel but this restaurant in the hotel has just never come up to the high standard of the hotel. They closed the poolside grill so now you have to eat lunch here. Service is no better than it was in past visits and the menu hasn't changed at all. The food is OK and the location is... More

Hands down the best food I had on the island. Clearly they have an experienced chef. I tried fresh fish. Amazing. Ribeye. Amazing. Prime rib. Amazing. You won't go wrong here and the prices are so reasonable. Drunk prices are steep, but it's a resort.

Not bad, but a typical resort restaurant and bar. Happy hour prices just ok, as are the offered pupus (snacks). Onsite at the Marriott resort on Kalapaki Bay.

최고의 아메리칸 스타일 브런치 한사람당 34달러정도 되는 비싼 가격이지만 음식과 분위기가 전반적으로 괜찮은 곳입니다. 특히 바싹한 베이컨, 즉석 오믈렛(요리사에게 재료선택가능), 질감좋은 과일이 씹히는 쨈과 먹는 와플은 잊혀지지가 않네요. 전반적인 분위기가 너무좋아서 식사를 하다가 카우아이의 새들에게 인사하게 됩니다^^(마치 새들이 인사하러 날라오는 느낌이랄까) 13개월 애기를 동반하고 한시간 밖에 남지않은 식사시간이었음에도 불구, 따뜻하고 친절한 웨이트리스 Amy 덕분에 정말 편하게 식사할수 있었습니다.
