Aside from the great selection from the buffet Rainbow Lanai staff like Noelle the hostess, Brian and Renee the servers were all very accommodating and showed their genuine Aloha spirits.

This place only serves a breakfast buffet now which is excellent. However, years ago, it served a dinner buffet with each night having a different international theme. It was jaw-dropping! A real shame they supposed that. The breakfast, though, will not disappoint.

Open only for the breakfast buffet, this restaurant is in a nice area close to the ocean. I was most interested in tropical fruit, which was abundant. The rest was also good. Pretty high price for breakfast - nearly $50 per person.

This is a buffet with many different items. They have an omelet bar in addition. I'm not positive but they may have an alternative for just a continental breakfast option with limited items. The food is delicious but not... More
