Every year we look forward to hearing Hank at Kilohana play. He is a excellent pianist and just a pleasure to chat with. The food at Gaylord’s is excellent as well. Seeing n hearing Hank is always a highlight of our visit to Kauai.

Great atmosphere in an outdoor courtyard. Food was good but over priced (as to be expected in the area).

We had a wonderful dinner. The atmosphere & service was excellent. The piano player was very good. The Luau kind of drowned him out. Next time I wouldn’t go when Luau is going on.

Don't miss the piano player at the Mahiko Lounge at Gaylord's. This is a must, for us, on every trip to Kauai. Hank Curtis plays every Tuesday and Friday nights from 6:30 - 9pm. He was a child prodigy who played the concert stage until...More

Gaylord's offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Located on the ground floor of the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Seafood Spring Rolls and Organic Greens Salads; Local Fish, Meat and Vegetarian Entrees; and Banana Cream Pie for Dessert! After your meal take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the rum shop or take a ride on the plantation train. Join us at Gaylord's to enjoy the best of what Kauai has to offer in island food and experience. Call for reservations and details on weekly entertainment. Memorable by day...Unforgettable by Night.
