Island of Kauai

Every smart traveler knows that when you’re looking for a great restaurant, ask the people who live there. On Kaua‘i, it’s Hukilau Lanai! Kaua‘i’s locals from Waimea on the west side to Princeville on the North Shore “hele on down” to this island favorite. Hukilau offers consistently excellent food at reasonable prices, nightly live music, an outstanding wine list—featuring 20 wines for $20-something, and friendly hosts and servers. The open-air, ocean-view, torch-lit ambiance adds to the casual chic. They’re known for the freshest island fish and their use of local products and produce. The starters, such as sweet potato ravioli and ‘ahi poke nachos, are hard to pass up.
