You can read many reviews that describe THE VIEW from this most beautiful place. And, THE VIEW is THE REASON to eat here. But, we must add that the service, at least the two days we ate breakfast here, was also very satisfying! Richard, our server the first day, is very pleasant, especially when you take the time to chat... More

We had a very romantic dinner there during our latest vacation. I would recommend making an early reservation on the lanai for sunset. The views of Hanalei Bay and the mountains are spectacular. The food was prepared beautifully and the service was excellent. It was completely worth the splurge.

Our server was amazing! Food was amazing! Views amazing! It was a great experience. We were able to watch the sunset and I... More

Absolutely the most amazing view on the island... Makai Terrace should be a must see on your list, a super magical place, especially at sunset... We were seated at the outermost edge of the restaurant, feels like you you are just above the ocean where below is the stunning Hanalei Bay with waterfalls, mountains and cathedral spires. The sun setting... More

These folks have just given up. The food was edible, but it seemed like it came out of a hospital kitchen. Just terrible. This place attracts unknowing visitors then charges them triple what the food would be worth if it had been prepared well. Stay away. You have been warned.

The staff at the Makana Terrace were some of the most warm and friendly people we have encountered on our travels. They were so sweet to our children and accommodating to our large party. The breakfast buffet was a highlight for everyone! The food was slightly different everyday but ALWAYS delicious.

Atmosphere and food great but service very poor for a high end restaurant, waiters have no time in serving you wine have to do it yourself but they still want the full 15 % tip.

We ordered omelets for breakfast. $25 seems a bit pricey, but the food was delicious and as a hotel guest you are a captive audience at 6:30 am. Beautiful view.

Ok, I am from Southern California and when someone mentions a Sunday brunch, I expect something special. The Mahana Terrace has a $39 Sunday brunch that must be the same as their Monday thru Saturday brunch. Nothing special AT ALL! Yes, they have omelettes, but you can get an omelette just about anywhere. Seafood? Not at this Sunday brunch. It... More
