The St Regis Princeville no longer serves lunch on the lobby level patio - which is a shame as that view at lunchtime in the breeze is stunning. However - you can have lunch poolside. As poolside food goes it was actually rather good. You can have fries or fruit so we split and each ordered one - neither disappointed.... More

Simple food, strait forward menu. Victoria was our server and we had a large group of 9. We weren't very organized and I'm sure drove Victoria nutts, but she did a great job serving to us and catering to one in our group who was a very particular eater. If you go, I suggest the sweet onion chips with ahi... More

This is a great pool side restaurant , or have the deliver to your beach chair. The tuna poke nachos are a must! Next would have to be the fish tacos and the burger. Great sweet potato fries and friendly service.

My family was staying on the south side of the island but we decided to spend one day on the north side and visit the hotel that my husband and I stayed in 18 years ago. I was hoping to eat at Makana Terrace but the only lunch option was by the pool. We decided to stay since it was... More

Dropped by the St. Regis in Princeville which is a beautiful hotel. Wanted to have lunch and were surprised the only place open was the poolside bar and grill. Great location near the water with stunning views. Food was average, draft beers not available on this day and the bottled beer was warm. Unless you are getting a burger for... More

The setting is really beautiful, but the food is terrible. Guacamole obviously came from a jar. Poke Bowl was fishy and vein-y/ chewy. Even the hot dog was burned and chickens eating off the table of uncleared plates was not awesome. Poolside, so very convenient, but food is below average.

A must go to grab a bite and lounge by the pool and the beach. Catch the gorgeous sunset! Great attentive staff and the ultimate get away to relax.

We had a delicious dinner here...the view of the bay and sunset is great. The wine selection is one of the best I've seen....your only limitation is your pocketbook. We had a couple of bottles of some Spanish red wine that were delicious. Our food was superb... steaks, fish...even made a gluten free dish for our daughter-in-law. Everyone's meal was... More

Its so easy to fall into the lazy routine of never leaving the resort you are at and eating only hotel food. Tough to leave this pool so you pay costly hotel food prices (33%+ over outside restaurants) for just average food. Best item was the two mahi fish tacos. ($22!) Anyway, try dragging your loved one away from this... More
