Hukilau Lanai Restaurant

Our mission is to create and serve delicious, consistent food focusing on local fish, farms, and products. Our menu features Kauai & Neighbor Island products & produce, along with foods made from scratch in our kitchen. Hukilau Lanai: Literal Meaning: Huki = pull lau = leaves, specifically, ki (ti) leaves. Lanai = porch or deck. Cultural Meaning: This is an old Hawaiian way of fishing, involving casting a long net from the shore, then enlisting a large group to help to pull it in. The net is lined with ki (ti) leaves which help scare fish toward the middle of the net. Through teamwork we deliver quality products & excellent customer service while serving the best fresh island fish and other unique and special local products in our open air and lanai restaurant.
