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 the HUKILAU LANAIKaua‘i’s locals from Waimea on the West side to Princeville on the North Shore “hele on down” to this local favorite. Hukilau offers consistently excellent, fresh cuisine at reasonable prices, entertainment, an outstanding wine list—also nicely priced, and friendly hosts and servers. The open-air, torchlit ambiance adds to the casual chic. The chef is a culinary wizard, so it’s difficult to choose the best on the menu, but the sweet potato ravioli and ahi poke nachos are highly recommended as starters. There’s also a 5 course Food & Wine Tasting Menu available by reservation between 5:00 and 5:45pm. Discover why this restaurant is the “Kama‘aina Choice.”
