Lanai Restaurants

Lanai's own version of Hawaii regional cuisine draws on the fresh bounty provided by local farmers and fishermen, combined with the skills of well-regarded chefs. The upscale menus at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai encompass European- and Asian-inspired cuisine as well as innovative preparations of international favorites and vegetarian delights. All Four Seasons Resort restaurants offer children's menus. Lanai City's eclectic ethnic fare runs from construction-worker-size local plate lunches to poke (raw fish), pizza, and pasta. Lanai "City" is really a small town; restaurants sometimes close their kitchens early, and only a few are open on Sunday.

    Reflecting the resort's country-manor ambience, this peaceful and romantic octagonal restaurant is fine dining at its informal best. Terra-cotta walls and soft peach lighting flatter everyone, and intimate tables are spaced to allow for private conversations. The four-course tasting menu, with optional wine pairings, changes weekly, and features such delicacies as Hawaii Island Kahua Ranch beef or lamb, Molokai venison, Kona fish or shellfish, and Hamakua mushrooms. Service is quietly attentive. As of this writing, the Dining Room is closed, with plans to reopen for the holiday season in late 2015.

    The clubhouse overlooks the emerald greens of the golf course, making this a pleasant spot for casual fare. Sit inside and watch sports on the TV, or on the terrace to enjoy the antics of lumbering wild turkey families. The grilled fresh-catch sandwich is accompanied by fries; the succulent hamburgers are the best on the island. Homemade salt-and-pepper potato chips, salads and sandwiches, venison chili, beer and wine, soft drinks, and some not very inspiring desserts complete the menu.
