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

We had high expectations for this restaurant, based on the St. Regis brand and what we had heard about it. We were sadly disappointed. The appetizer course, a romaine and heart of palm salad for one of us and the Miso soup for the other were under or poorly seasoned. One of entrées was their "Specialty" Mixed Grill was disappointing... More

Really fresh sushi, with some creative options. We ate here our 1st night after 10+ hours of travel - good cocktails and a light sushi dinner with gorgeous views made for a perfect way to settle in!

We visited Makana Terrace for a sunset dinner. The view is spectacular and really special. However, the food was average - particularly considering how expensive it is - and was the worst meal we had during our week in Kauai. The kale salad had no flavor. Our other dishes were average, and there are better fine dining options in Princeville... More

Our family's celebration of a 50th Anniversary could not have been more special. Thank you St. Regis for exceeding expectations! We attended the Mailani Dinner Show - great music, wonderful stories and terrific dancing...oh and the food was tremendous. Worth every penny!

We had the brunch buffet here every day during our stay and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Being able to sit back and enjoy a coffee while soaking in the view was the perfect way to start each morning.

It's an outdoor eatery My husband and I celebrated our 35th and were given a perfect table right by the infinite pool overlooking the bay with mountains In the background. It's busy but The service was great. It was very romantic.

One of the best brunch I ever had. Service was exceptional. I'm not a fan of regular mimosas but I really enjoy the Guava mimosas at this place. Also the view of the ocean are amazing. If you are visiting kaki you must stop at the St Regis Hotel

Wow. The mountains were so beautiful in the distance as we ate brunch at this amazing spot. We would go again and again if we could. This was a weekend brunch/breakfast.

Thank Al S
