We greatly enjoyed our dinner on the patio. The menu and food are very good, service was attentive. We also enjoyed touring the plantation mansion that now holds a variety of shops.

Nice spot to have dinner, galleries to peruse before or after your meal, food is not as expensive as many other nice restaurants on island. Meals were above average but didn't blow us away by any means. But really nice settting.

Had a really great meal here. One of the best meals I had when in Hawaii. I was skeptical as the restaurant seemed a bit old and the crowd seemed quite a bit older than my husband and I, but I had it completely wrong....More

It is also a hotel, so most likely they will be open. Our favorite place to eat during our 2 wk. stay there!

Last Summer they did not specifically have a gluten free menu. But they would work to make items gluten free where possible. I had no problem with their food.

It is just a short drive, say under 5 miles I think. A real short jaunt, maybe 10 15 minutes. Hope this helps!

Gaylord's offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Located on the ground floor of the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Seafood Spring Rolls and Organic Greens Salads; Local Fish, Meat and Vegetarian Entrees; and Banana Cream Pie for Dessert! After your meal take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the rum shop or take a ride on the plantation train. Join us at Gaylord's to enjoy the best of what Kauai has to offer in island food and experience. Call for reservations and details on weekly entertainment. Memorable by day...Unforgettable by Night.
