There are few more beautiful places to enjoy breakfast than here, facing Kahekili Beach (also known as North Kaanapali Beach). This restaurant mimics an open-air plantation home, decorated with memorabilia chronicling the life of world-famous Hawaiian surfer Duke Kahanamoku. It’s part of the T S Restaurants family, which includes Kimo’s, Hula Grill, and Leilani’s on Maui, Keoki’s Paradise on Kauai, and Duke’s in Waikiki—among others. Although you can order the massive signature hula pie for dessert, the rest of the menu reflects a less formulaic approach. Lunch offers a kicky Korean fish bowl and steak street tacos along with crowd-pleasing burgers and fish and chips, while dinner features sustainable fresh catches, perhaps steamed in banana leaves with sake ginger sauce or sautéed in a crust of macadamia nuts, Parmesan, and panko. The gracious sea-breeze-kissed locale, including the handsome Ohia Bar, and the kitchen’s commitment to serving locally raised beef, eggs, and vegetables are also pluses. Add to that live music during dinner and the daily “aloha hour” (3–5pm).
