Kukui's Restaurant at Kalapaki Beach
The food was excellent, but we waited 40 minutes for sliders and a sandwich and it was not busy. It really seemed as though our server forgot to put in the order. We’re all human, so we’d definitely give it another chance. Immersive feel and location- you forget you’re next to a fairly busy road.
Great food, and they take care of you like family. We have some very serious allergies and dietary restriction, these people took great care of us. Thank you.
The Friday night prime rib dinner was delicious and a good value. The weather was perfect for our outdoor dining. One downside is our seating next to the music entertainment making conversation difficult to hear,
The foods a little overpriced for the quality and the service is slow. Location is nice and convenient if staying at the Marriott resort, but otherwise I wouldn’t recommend it.
The ambiance, food, service, and entertainment was beyond reproach! Outstanding in every aspect! Great value and lots of food! Can’t wait to go back!!
We thoroughly enjoyed the Monday buffet! Great food!
We celebrated our 49th anniversary with you! It was wonderful!
We always enjoy being here. Brittany was so nice to us and made it another wonderful experience!
Very slow service in an almost empty restaurant. Food was poor quality and i believe heated in a microwave.
Always a favorite for us. We spend time here every year for our anniversary (49 this time and always enjoy it!
Great food and service. The salad bar was bountiful and delicious as well.
Our second visit to this restaurant. Our server this time was a little slow, but the bussers were very good. Food was awesome!
It was our family New Years brunch and it did not disappoint.
Great value and great food!
Haven’t been to this restaurant for about 3-4 years and it was WAY better than we’d remembered! The addition of a salad bar to the main entrees was wonderful. Honestly, I could’ve eaten at the salad bar for the whole meal. I’m glad I didn’t, however, because the entrées were excellent. Love that you can order off the main menu, and also off the sushi bar menu. That helped our whole family find exactly what we wanted! Our server was super helpful, and answered every question we had. So glad we are staying at the resort, as we will be back for sure.
A great variety of food and excellent service. The omelette station is very popular with Ginny and Marlet serving custom designs with a smile. Gina is amazing at the attention she provides from the check-in and seating to the entire meal. Great ambiance and consistently outstanding buffet! If you server is Ramon or Cherine you will be in most competent hands.
Enjoyed our holiday dinner very much. We will be back :-)
Can’t recommend this indifferent and poorly designed restaurant. Many tables are situated directly in walkway between hotel and beach. My daughter was jostled by people walking by. We weren’t informed that there would be a limited menu with only buffet. Due to health issues, I then couldn’t eat with family. Waiter was unconcerned.
First order=shrimp scampi. It was tasty. Second order=baked salmon with a cream sauce. The slamon was over cooked, to the point of mush. The sauce was tasty. The accompanying mashed potatoes were good, but the vegetables were way undercooked. The brussel sprouts could not even be cut with a knife. The second order of vegetables were better-included zucchini, broccoli and carrots-all a softer cook, but still firm. Salad bar selections were significantly limited. Service was attentive.
Had a wonderful dinner on Christmas Eve. We had a 7 yr old with us & our servers attention to our daughter was exceptional. They had a kids menu that she could color on, asked if we wanted a lid for her drink & took her order first thing so it arrived prior to our dinner. That was so appreciated, as she was occupied while we had our first course & wasn’t starving while we waited for everyone’s meal. Little things like these go a long way when you’re traveling with a child.
The service & food were very good. This is a very relaxed, casual restaurant. If you want a romantic dinner, go elsewhere.
Kukui's was fantastic. Loved eating poolside and listening to the waves. We ate dinner here twice. Food delicious, generous portions and friendly service. First nite we had the buffet which included desserts. Thoroughly enjoyable. Next time ordered off the menu and had prime rib cooked to perfection. And the rice pudding was the best. Also, prices very reasonable as compared to other comparable restaurants. I will eat here again for sure when I return to this beautiful resort. Thank you. Dan
It was Thanksgiving. They charged extra for turkey which we didn’t know about in advance. And the ran out of pumpkin pie and sticky buns. Last time we ate there they ran out of turkey.
For dinner a much improved experience! We returned after a year and Kukui's food is tastier and better prepared. A lot of the menu seems to be Asian influenced dishes (too many for our tastes) and the menu is missing some basics like dinner sized Chef or Chopped Salads and, although there's a nice ice salad bar with locally grown greens and a small assortment of options, we could have had more variety. Kitchen delivery was speedy and food was served hot.
Service was spotty. There's only one greeter and they seem to double setting up clean tables and looking for empty tables. On a quiet night you can wait 10 minutes to be seated because the greeter is elsewhere. Wait staff was always friendly.
FYI...breakfast is top-notch and service is excellent. Not at all like dinner and choices are plentiful and prices reasonable.
it was easy and the entrees were enjoyable. Service attentive. Salad bar was okay but the “roasted vegys” in the salad bar were barely cooked or grilled. Prime rib was done to order(med rare); however the lamb chops were over cooked but their sauce was very good.. great deal on the 9.99 wine bottle; a good red blend. too full to order dessert.
The food is wonderful and the staff very gracious. We very much enjoyed a special brunch. The beach view is wonderful!
Excellent breakfast brunch!! The staff is very friendly & service was excellent!!
It is a fantastic spot with great service, wonderful food and a terrific view. Highly recommended for a good time.
The food was extremely slow! It took 1 hour to get our food. Not sure we will dine here again. Sadly we stay at that hotel often. I would recommend it if the foodservice could be sped up. The quality of the food was ver good. Just too long between salad and meal.
Wonderful food and service and highly recommended for a good time
They sat our group on the outside so it was very nice. But as it got dark I couldn't see my food clearly. It was brighter sitting on the inside. The service was very good and so was the food. I loved the salad bar ... I ate too much salad so I couldn't finish my dinner.
We enjoyed our Sunday brunch buffet. Service is great and we enjoyed our food too. Not to forget their bottomless mimosas and of course the desserts.
Drinks absolutely too expensive
We ordered two beers, by ourselves took a portion of buffet.. And you oblige me to pay 20% of automatic gratuity??
You don't deserve more future clients!
Great ambience! So nice to sit around the pool. Service was great! Food was good.
Fish was fresh. Tacos were not grilled or warmed. Sauce and slaw was good
Very slow service. Arrived before 830 and although restaurant not busy our table wasn’t ready. Had to get attn of server multiple times to place order and check status
Great restaurant at the Marriott Beach Resort! It’s right next to the hotel pool with great, friendly service and yummy food.
