We ate here our last night in Kauai before having to fly back home. Food was excellent. Service also great. A little pricey but nothing I didn't expect. Has amazing views. I'd definitely recommend eating here!

My husband and I had dinner at Makana Terrace to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful experience. Makana Terrace has the best views on the island bar none. The food was excellent. The service was impeccable from our hostess Shannon who made us feel so welcome, our server Janette who could answer every question we had on... More

Having had the Sunday brunch buffet at least a half dozen times in the last couple years, we were looking forward to bringing more family for the incredible view and food. Unfortunately the brunch is now a pure breakfast buffet, with about a third of the offerings as before. Gone is the carving station, sushi, seafood, international dishes, keiki table... More

Had dinner here on New Year's Eve, and had a pretty good but not great experience. Fully understand that it's a very busy night, but a few things seemed a little off. First, what happened to the buffet?? The restaurant usually does a full buffet for NYE, but was missing this year! Oh well, we did a la carte instead.... More

We were staying at the St Regis and decided to eat at the Makana Terrace for New Years Eve. The cocktails were unique and tasty and the food excellent. We had a fixed 5 course menu and was one of the top 10 meals we have ever had, and the. It's expensive ever.

I guess everything thing in Hawaii is expensive. The food was good but I was expecting better for the prices and it being at the St. Regis.

The breakfast buffet is great and well worth the view alone. Great service and delicious food, the omelette station is especially wonderful. However, dinner is not worth the price. When we arrived they had lost our reservation which I had an emailed confirmation from the concierge, but they made me feel embarrassed like it was somehow my fault. I think... More

We arrived at the tail end of the buffet service but there was still a large selection of items to select from. The service was spot on and the view from our table was as great as the food. A bit pricey but certainly something to try at least once.

The view from this restaurant and its exquisite setting perched on a bluff, together with the wide array of quality buffet treats, is a pleasure that has repeated itself over the many yrs, as we've visited the island again and again. Just LOVE this place!

We ate breakfast every morning at the buffet and it was delicious!. We had dinner at Makana Terrace on our last night and the service could have been a lot better. We hardly ever saw our waitress and it took forever to get our food. We ordered wedge salads, which weren't that great, I had one of their soups, which... More
