Had the SAME offerings for the length of our stay. At $35 per person (plus tax) this venue disappointed BIG time. Wait! The silver dollar pancakes were fine and so was the smoked salmon. The rest? Feh..

My daughter and son-in-law and I had a special anniversary dinner here. KeKao, our server, was so helpful and friendly. He recommended the special and it was delicious.

We have eaten here both times we have stayed at the Grand Hyatt. The food is always great and is equal to the service we received.

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt Hotel and had breakfast every morning. The food was very good but spaced out too far and can be very confusing .

We are repeat visitors here, and this meal was, as always, truly memorable. Food is beautifully prepared and tastes wonderful. Staff is friendly and attentive. But the setting is unique... Very Polynesian, with rooms connected over a gorgeous koi pond environment. Unforgettable experiance.

Embrace the tempting combination of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine served in a unique Hawaiian setting. Thatched-roof bungalows float above a koi-filled lagoon at the base of a waterfall to create romantic ambiance. Inspired by local ingredients and the rich culinary traditions of Hawaii
