Visitors to the Lodge Dining Room are sure to be awarded a memorable dining experience beyond the majestic setting. They will also be titillated with delicously prepared food that tastes even more delightful as a result of all the other dining room amentities tossed into the experience, such as the unexpected crackle of a great, castle sized roaring fire in a classically decorated great room. What saves it from being just another stunning estate dining experince prepared by four star chefs and served on priceless crystal is the unfailing grip it has on the spirit of Aloha with the use of native produce and game. This is a hunting lodge after all.
Named the best restaurant on the islands by both Conde Nast readers and Zagat guide, the Lodge is most deserving of this status. Visting chefs regularly appear along with visiting first-class entertainers more than willing to make the out-of-the-way trek to this remote locale.
