Outstanding food and service and ambiance. We had a triple fish dish and all cooked to perfection. The sauce rivaled anything you get in Paris. Great wine list. This is our second time and again excellent experience.

Food was ok...nothing to rave about. Staff ok too. Pretty expensive. As we don't have a car, we are restricted to the eating laces nearby. It was recommended to us but we were a bit underwhelmed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Hukilau Lanai. The arugula salad and the caesar salad were both very good. The Ono with coconut rice and habanero sauce was delicious, as was the Mixed Grill. The macadamia nut tart was superb. It was full of nuts...More

We have visited Kauai several times and are always looking for new restaurants to explore, especially if they have outside seating. Well we found a winner here. It is located in a hotel, which is not usually a good thing. But Hukilau is the exception...More

Your conditions don't work for an open-plan restaurant. One of the large hotels would be more suitable for you.
