Yes, it's more expensive than what you might have thought. It is Kauai and everything on the island is probably more expensive than you thought. This is a stunning restaurant with a view of a small bond with 2 mated swans gliding back and forth....More

Excellent but expensive. Save up to make sure you experience food and drink at the Hyatt regardless of your hotel. One of the prettiest hotels on any of the islands.

Had lunch at the terrace today. Very nice place with swans swimming around. Great view of the ocean in the background. Had the pepper steak salad (gluten free) and it was really good. Salads are around 25$ each. Would recommend. 😁

Great selection of food with views to match it. Only open during the day, not evening. I enjoyed many lunches here.

The Breakfast Buffet was expensive which is why I didn't give it a perfect review. But...it was really, really good! The food, the ambiance and the waitstaff.

Any age. There were many families with children and they ranged from babies to teenagers. The buffet was delicious and a lot of choices for children.
