With its five-star resorts and discerning clientele, dining on Lānaʻi has become a world-class affair. Between the mom-and-pop cafes of Lānaʻi City and the high-end resort restaurants that turn eating any meal into a special occasion, this tiny island has more than enough dining choices to satisfy any appetite.
For local flavor, head to Lānaʻi City favorites like Blue Ginger Cafe, Ganotisiʻs Pacific Rim Cuisine, Lānaʻi City Service Station, and Richard's Market. At the historic Hotel Lānaʻi, the Lānaʻi City Bar & Grill is a great dinner option accompanied by live music and wine.
The Four Seasons Resort Lānaʻi offers a range of delicious options for guests and day visitors alike. One Forty specializes in steaks, seafood and unbeatable ocean views, while trendy Nobu slices up melt-in-your-mouth sashimi and creative Japanese cuisine. The Break features all-day casual dining, and guests can enjoy fresh, locally sourced food at Malibu Farm. Just across the property, Views at Mānele Golf Course offers salads, wraps, pūpū (Hawaiian small plates) and—as the name suggests—stunning views of the ocean, golf course and even breaching humpbacks during whale season. The Views is open to non-Four Seasons guests.

Eat Like a Local
Consisting of two scoops of rice, macaroni salad, and everything from kalua pork, Korean barbecue, chicken katsu, beef teriyaki, or mahimahi, the plate lunch is a staple of local food.
No matter what island you’re on, grab a shave ice to cool off. These finely shaved snow cones are served with colorful flavors on the top with a choice of ice cream or azuki beans on the bottom.
“Pupu” is the Hawaiian term for appetizer, and every local restaurant in Hawaii offers a wide range of creative pupu platters to dine on, from poke dishes to sushi.
Treat your sweet tooth to a hot malasada (a Portuguese doughnut). Although Leonard's Bakery in Kapahulu is popular on Oahu, ask any local and they can tell you their favorite bakeries on each island to find these fresh and tasty treats.
For big appetites, try a “loco moco,” which is a hamburger steak and egg over rice, covered in gravy. You can find loco moco served throughout the islands, but Café 100 in Hilo on the island of Hawaii is said to have originated the name.
