Location is great. Server was great. Happy hour drinks were good. Fish tacos were just OK. For tacos, Coconuts was much better but not near the ambiance. I would go to Leilani's again for happy hour and food, but it would not be my first...More

If you’re staying at the Westin and are tired of the Relish Bar or the poolside food options, taking the quick walk to Leilani’s is a good option. The food is good and the wait staff is very friendly.

Very casual on the beach. Wait staff very friendly! Our waitress even offered to come outside to take our picture. She took several to be sure we got a good one. The fish tacos are great!

Lovely patio seating with wonderful food and service and reasonable prices. Very popular venue to watch the sunset. People line up along the walkway to capture that perfect photo. We also enjoy the lunch.

We had dinner upstairs overlooking Kaanapali Beach. Our server knew the menu very well, and was an expert in helping us choose a perfect wine.

Hi Lea, You aren't actually on the beach, but if you dine outside at Leilani's, there is only a walkway between you and the beach. Right next door is Hula Grill and same thing, but the floor is sand.
