We made reservations weeks in advance for a early seating and had a table with unobstructed views of the Napali Coast and later the sunset. The food was excellent, our server was attentive, but not intrusive. The view has always been the best in Princeville and maybe for the whole island. We were a party of seven and everyone enjoyed...

During our stay we went to the buffet each day. Chelsea took care of us and she was simply amazing. The food was astounding. All great. No complaints. Only compliments.

Can't imagine a more stunning view for dinner. Come at sunset and request a table with a view! Cocktail was one of the best I had all trip - I got the margarita, but substituted vodka for tequila. My entree was delicious (but pricy) - lobster tempura with a delicious buttery sauce and an ahi roll. My husband had mahi... More

My wife was really looking forward to this dinner but the poor service sort of ruined the evening. This was really too bad. Our waiter was a nice young man but half way through our meal he sort of forgot about us. It took a long time to get our entrees and even longer to get our dessert. For our... More

The reason to dine at Makana Terrace is the stunning view! The drinks are good, and the food is fine (not fantastic). The service is also fine, although the night we were there, the waiter dropped and broke dishes twice. But the view and atmosphere is truly one-of-a-kind. Many come here to propose or to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. It... More

Beautiful setting for a relaxing, romantic dinner. Whenever we are in Princeville, we stop by the St Regis for drinks upstairs, or a meal at the restaurant by the pool. This is the first time we ate at the Makana Terrace. Glad we did - we enjoyed a lovely evening - but the highlights were the ambiance and service. The... More

The view is gorgeous. That's the only good thing I can say about this restaurant. Our waitress tried her best to give us good service, but she was vastly overwhelmed. It looked like she and one guy who was trying to do water, bread service and bus tables were the ONLY servers on staff on a busy night. Never once... More

We went to the Princeville Hotel over 20 years ago for an Anniversary so whenever we visit Kauai we always make time to go to what is now the St Regis for breakfast. It has one of the most amazing views you will ever find and breakfast is only about $10 more than you usually pay. My one complaint is... More

We generally go for the Sunday brunch. There are so many mouth watering, attractive foods presented. Try to sit on the terrace near the edge. You might be bothered by birds, but you will hardly notice. All is presented with flair. The hotel is beautiful, but if you are coming to eat only and not residing there, there is no... More
