    We recently enjoyed a 3-day weekend on the island of Lanai. This restaurant located poolside at the Four Seasons Resort "Manele Bay Hotel" has it all. Fabulous ocean view! Gourmet cuisine. Friendly, efficient service. Very romantic at night ~ dining by torch light, with lovely live music. We had a great dinner there our first night, followed by two lunches. Enjoyed each and every meal!

    The poolside restaurant at Manele Bay transforms into an Italian Bistro for dinner. The sunset views are breathtaking! The service is outstanding. Food options are more limited compared with the resorts larger restaurant. But, the food is quite good. Hot tip, Nobu is building a new restaurant at the resort. That is the one to wait for.

    Great menu selection and if you want something specific they will do their best to make it. A diner at the table next to us just wanted tomato soup which wasn't on the menu and the chef sent the waiter back to ask specifics (cream/no cream etc.) Waiter was very friendly and helpful. Fabulous fabulous view.
