Paid for a romantic dinner before the Luau and was promised a great meal. Served one pat of butter for both of us. Portions were extremely small and gave us the feeling they were skimping on the meal to save money. One of the bus...More

Appetisers were average and I suspect my Shrimp spring rolls were not made on the premises. Filet minion was huge but excellent. Overall, reasonable, but all seemed very rushed as we were only 2 out of 6 guests left at 9.00 pm. In Spain, they...More

Interesting train ride thru the beautiful plantation. Sunday Brunch was busy time, food was okay, nothing special. Shops with fun art, cards, clothes and more.

It is also a hotel, so most likely they will be open. Our favorite place to eat during our 2 wk. stay there!

Last Summer they did not specifically have a gluten free menu. But they would work to make items gluten free where possible. I had no problem with their food.

It is just a short drive, say under 5 miles I think. A real short jaunt, maybe 10 15 minutes. Hope this helps!

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.
