Where to Eat

Hoku's - Hoku's consistently wins acclaim for its contemporary Island cuisine, which melds Hawaiian, Asian, and European flavors prepared with finesse and served with style. Renovated June 2006, the hotel features bright furnishings, Italian bone china, and Christofle silver. Updated menu items include Slow Braised Kahuku Pork Belly, Pancetta Crusted Onaga, and Salt Crusted Rack of Wisconsin Lamb, served tableside. Old favorites such as the Crisp Whole Island Fish still remain. Thanks to a multi-level layout, all diners receive ocean-view seats, but may be distracted from the view by the open kitchen featuring fiery hot woks, a kiawe wood grill, and tandoori and wood-burning ovens. Hoku's serves dinner and Sunday brunch.

Arancino at the Kahala - Italian restaurant serving lunch, dinner, and drinks. Children's menu and al fresco dining is available.

Plumeria Beach House - Renowned for its Kahala Burger, this casual beachside café features bountiful buffets and off-the-menu choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with live Hawaiian music at sunset.

The Veranda - Designed in classic plantation style, the comfortable lounge overlooks the Dolphin Lagoon with a choice of both indoor and al fresco seating. Perfect for lingering over a cocktail or just escaping with a good book, as palm leaf motifs and island-inspired furnishings transport you to that other time. Our Afternoon Tea is a tradition, after a day out discovering Oahu. It is also a popular venue for special occasions and showers.

Seaside Grill - With a direct view of the Pacific Ocean, this restaurant is perfect for lunch or afternoon cocktails. Also features classic burgers, sandwiches, and salads.

Arancino - Serves Italian cuisine including antipasti, pasta, and pizza.
