I actually read the reviews of this restaurant before going there for breakfast today. Yes, it’s expensive! It was however better than expected. Would I go back? Definitely if it was better priced. The service and food was good.

We ate here for breakfast. Food was good but know its $39.99 for the breakfast buffet. We were happy to pay for the convenience. The food was good!!

The food was ok but the cost of 2 breakfasts, drinks with 2 mimosas was $102. Might be acceptable for Waikiki but it was enough that we'll go somewhere else.

Breakfast buffet was hideously overpriced for the quality (or lack thereof). The only thing that was good quality was the fresh fruit, of which they had a decent selection. And the rice. Other than that, everything was very sub-par and not good at all. There...More

I liked the breakfast buffet at Rainbow Lanai a lot. Staff was very friendly. Food was good - especially the Omelettes from the egg station. For the price charged, I would like to also get a waffle/crêpe station, cafe latte etc. Overall it’s too expensive.

This is a great place for breakfast. There is a wide selection for breakfast buffet style. Staff is friendly. Open air restaurant. No reservations needed. The food is good and you can go back up for seconds or thirds. Fixed price.

Ouch! Breakfast was tres cher! There was a lot of variety but when I first went up, almost nothing turned my crank. I got an excellent omelet from the omelet station and eventually picked at a few pastries. Our server was lovely and very accommodating....More

The only place in the Hilton Village that is open at 5:30am with a great view of the beach fir the sunrise. The prices are high, even compared to other places on the resort. The continental breakfast is a decent option, no need to upgrade...More

We have been to several buffets and no that you generally aren't there for the best food. This was the case here at Rainbow Lanai. I wanted to enjoy breakfast with a nice view and it didn't disappoint just be prepared for the sticker shock....More

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
