Full Description
Hukilau Lanai can be found at the Kauai Coast Resort (which is right next door to the Aston Islander on the Beach) and is open for dinner service only. They serve a variety of appetizers and American dishes with some Hawaiian inspiration such as steaks, seafood, ribs, and even poke nachos.

You'll find a full bar here, waiter service, and a nice outdoor eating area if you prefer not to be inside. They serve five course gluten free meals. All of the ingredients that are used there, are locally sourced.

They offer a food and wine tasting-5 courses with 5 wines for $50. There is a gluten free version of this tasting. Best to make reservations. The wait staff explains the reason for the wine and food combinations. We had a lovely dinner with friends visiting from the east coast.

An absolute must on every visit! We dine there at least once per visit to Kauai. Of course, since it's on the same property as my timeshare it's pretty easy to just walk inside. The lobster curry bisque is my go-to favorite.

The food and wine tasting menu always has some great choices. Lobster and goat cheese won ton is another fave from the pupus menu. And, if you happen to be poolside around lunchtime, they always have some tasty specials.

This is a top 5 Kauai restaurant for us. Always excellent service and amazing food! Beautiful lanai setting! This is THE place to go for a really nice meal! You might want to reserve for early dinner and try the Tasting Menu option - great courses with perfect wine pairings!

Didn't want a full meal so got the poke nachos. Turns out that they're large enough to be a full meal. So I ate them all and loved every minute of it. Some of the menu items can be a little pricey, but the poke nachos were a deal. Great atmosphere here, great service.

There are hundreds of reviews for this restaurant. Most people agree that the food is excellent.

However, it is quite pricey which is fairly typical for any resort based restaurant. Overall, the customer service is good, but some individuals think that it can be improved upon.

The environment is said to be casual and romantic and very enjoyable.
