    Booked here for the Christmas buffet. Agreed to come to Kauai for Christmas as long as we wouldn’t end up eating at a fish restaurant for Christmas dinner. I was on the hunt for TRADITIONAL Christmas food and this buffet knocked it out of the park with turkey and all the trimmings, beef tenderloin, amazing sides and even more amazing desserts. Yes it was expensive— $95 prix fix — but it was exactly what I hoped for.

    Spent Christmas lunch here! The stuffing was freakin' delish and by far my fave side dish along with the roasted mash. Would highly recommend going here! Russell was an incredible waiter to have.

    Had a lovely Christmas Day lunch in a beautiful setting. There was a top notch buffet and the service was fantastic. We really enjoyed the guitarist playing, lovely ambience. The meal was delicious although you certainly pay for it. That said, we really felt this was a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas. I highly recommend.

    Normally the service and food are wonderful. Not do much this time. Food was undercooked the service was not good. I’m assuming due to a shortage of staff.

    We had a truly lovely birthday celebration thanks to Mala. She was very personable and friendly but professional and generous. She is an asset to the wait staff at Ilima Terrace. And the food? Delicious and very nicely presented. A memorable occasion and much Aloha shown!!🏝

    I love the views from the Illima Terrace in the Grand Hyatt, Kauai. We had brunch, celebrating our anniversary. There were Orchid Leis shaped as hearts on our table when we were seated. The manager, hostess and server all greeted with "Happy Anniversary" and a nice dessert sampler was included. The cocktails were inventive and I loved my pesto shrimp and fish salad with Papaya and macadamia nut pieces.

    Service was spectacular as well as the views and ambiance. We had the lunch menu so it was limited and certainly not extraordinary. Pretty average. Best part was the appetizer (only one available) ahi poke bowl. Great flavors. Everything else was ok. not good not bad just ok. All that being said, go there for the views and in our experience, the service!! We would do it again tomorrow (if they had availability)

    My wife’s crusted fish & prawn salad was delicious. Unfortunately my ahi sandwich was well done except for a few bites that were delicious as the sandwich should of been. Ahi should never be well done unless requested! Lack of quality control by the chef crew for a 5* hotel and prices which I expect for the beautiful ambience - and food should be.

    Went here for brunch (not breakfast buffet) and the food was great! The view is stunning and it’s a nice, relaxed atmosphere. However, service is not there at all and when it is, it is severely lacking in professionalism and attentiveness.
