Super disappointed. Our server was somewhere between arrogant (you know, the type that's doing a favor) and poor. Fish tacos were extremely tough.

Beautiful setting (this has no ocean view) but a wonderful place for dining. Prices are slightly higher than average but the quality, taste and service are what you are paying for. Definite spot to dine on Kauai.

It is also a hotel, so most likely they will be open. Our favorite place to eat during our 2 wk. stay there!

Last Summer they did not specifically have a gluten free menu. But they would work to make items gluten free where possible. I had no problem with their food.

It is just a short drive, say under 5 miles I think. A real short jaunt, maybe 10 15 minutes. Hope this helps!

Gaylord's offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Located on the ground floor of the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Seafood Spring Rolls and Organic Greens Salads; Local Fish, Meat and Vegetarian Entrees; and Banana Cream Pie for Dessert! After your meal take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the rum shop or take a ride on the plantation train. Join us at Gaylord's to enjoy the best of what Kauai has to offer in island food and experience. Call for reservations and details on weekly entertainment. Memorable by day...Unforgettable by Night.
