The menu also includes offerings such as the Kona coffee-rubbed New Zealand lamb rack with truffle mash and an elderflower and blackberry reduction, as well as a Hawaiian ranchers rib eye steak with fingerling potatoes. Desserts include a warm caramelized apple banana chocolate lumpia with coconut sauce, and a Waialua chocolate soufflé with Ka‘u macadamia nut sauce. The restaurant also features a full bar with signature cocktails and an array of appetizers, including selections from a seafood “treasure chest.”Pa‘akai has a contemporary, ocean-inspired ambiance of cool blues and natural fixtures, flexible seating for 110 guests, and an area for nightly live entertainment from renowned local artists.
