It's a hidden gem, a true island jewel situated on the sixth floor of Lani Kai Island Resort, high above the sand and the sea. Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, you truly have to experience the "casually upscale" fine dining Island View restaurant. Enjoy chef's specials throughout the week, including our most recent Seafood Spectacular menu, offering fresh seafood dishes from around the world every Thursday, and our infamous Two-for-One Pasta nights Tuesday and Sunday evenings. Live music with the Color of Sound sweeps the shoreline every Thursday and Saturday evening, from 5 to 8 p.m., and our $5 signature happy hour will make anyone smile daily, from 3 to 6 p.m. With breathtaking views, a top-notch menu of fresh seafood and Italian dishes and specialties, and a half-a-million dollar renovation, the Island View Restaurant is the perfect Date Night location.
