The gourmet room at the Kahala Resort is renowned amongst local and international critics and foodies as a one-of-a-kind dining experience. And just who might these critics be? Food and Wine Magazine, Zagat Guides and Conde Nast Traveler, for starters, have recognized the restaurant as unparalleled for fine dining and romance. The cuisine here is an inventive and delightful fusion of Pacific Rim, Continental and Hawaiian styles. The open kitchen allows diners to watch the chefs work their magic. It is advisable to dress up in evening wear as casual attire is frowned upon.
Nico's serves tasty French food in the traditional Hawaiian way. Quick service and good prices is one of its best features. Opening early in the morning, for those hungry for a sea breakfast, Nico's remains open until well after 6 when everyone heads home. The restaurant gets most of its customers from the Auction house next door and what keeps them coming back is the delicious food topped with quick service and reasonable prices. Lots of cheese and lots of fish–this seems to be their basic ingredients which somehow never taste alike in more than one dish. Add to this fresh salad, some dip and a scoop of rice, the food served here becomes even more flavorful and rich.
Small and cozy, this sushi hangout is the place where locals gather for pau-hana to cruise and relax after a hard day at work. The setting is simple, the sushi is fresh, and the atmosphere is warm and cordial. It’s a simple spot that gets extra points for keeping the prices low and beer very cold. Those who prefer to have their fish fresh and prepared at home know that the attached market is the spot to grab something glorious for the weekend grill. - Lottie Tagupa
