1. CANOEHOUSE AT MAUNA LANI RESORT
There’s no better pairing than the vast ocean views and authentic Hawaiian plantation-style entrées you’ll find at the Big Island’s CanoeHouse restaurant. Tucked away amidst swaying palm trees, at the lavish Mauna Lani Resort on the breathtaking Kohala Cost, CanoeHouse prides itself on serving only the island’s freshest sustainable fixings, handcrafted by Chef Allen Hess. Whether you want a meal fit for a rancher, famer, or fisherman, you’ll find it here, thanks to a diverse menu featuring lamb, grass-fed beef, bacon, fresh fish, and shellfish. Salads, a shared appetizer, and dinner for two will cost about $119-154 or you can choose the “Captain’s Table” blind tasting menu for two, complete with wine pairing, for $280. Complimentary valet parking is available.
