Sharing food with your ohana, which means “family” in Hawaiian, is an important aspect of traditional Hawaiian culture. We invite you and your loved ones to come together and enjoy some of Hilo’s best island-style cuisine. Our chef highlights local flavors and farm-fresh cuisine by using locally sourced produce selected from the Hilo Farmer’s Market and beef from the Big Island’s Kahua Ranch.

Our salad bar is offered every night alongside a soup of the day. Themed nights include a Chinese influenced buffet, Hilo Plantation Evening buffet, bbq, and pasta. Our dessert table includes delights like lilikoi bars, bread pudding, chocolate profiteroles and island-made ice cream.
