Upscale Hawaiian cuisine. Open for dinner Wednesday-Monday 5-8:30 PM.

Aulani’s premier beachside restaurant consists of three open-air dining areas, each representing Uncle’s fishing shack in various stages of add-ons. Ocean breezes and sunset views are at a premium, so plan to arrive in time to enjoy the sun sinking into the sea with music from Off the Hook next-door adding to the ambiance.

An inventive 4-course tasting menu with fresh ingredients typical of the islands is the fare. Definitely, an evening to remember.


Makahiki - The Bounty of the Islands

Hawaiian regional and global buffet. Open for breakfast and dinner.

Know for tasty and plentiful buffet meals, Makahiki should be on your Aulani schedule at least once during your stay. Breakfast is a famous character buffet with Minnie, Mickey, and Goofy in attendance along with fun play for the kids. Don’t miss the French toast with coconut syrup or the traditional Hawaiian breakfast, loco moco! For dinner, massive buffet feasts with a variety of global food reflect the essence of the Islands as the restaurant’s ambiance changes, along with the setting sun, with lighting turning from rose to indigo.
