CanoeHouse, Big Island

Located in the luxury environs of the Mauna Lani Resort, the CanoeHouse offers the finest plantation-style cuisine. Diners can enjoy breathtaking views of the clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, the Kohala Coastline and the magnificent Hawaiian sunsets over a fine dining experience at this acclaimed oceanfront restaurant. A visit to the CanoeHouse is a must for both local residents and visitors to the Big Island. From a world-class menu where East meets West, all ingredients are locally sourced and freshly prepared.

All items on the menu are based on fresh island ingredients and the use of sustainable produce. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings, diners get the opportunity to experience the delightful creations of the resident Chef de Cuisine in the form of a blind tasting menu known as the "Captain's Table." This menu is made up of an array of plantation-style flavors, all presented with great flair and creativity. The exciting creations on offer vary according to the season, and all the produce used is locally sourced and personalized. More than anything, the blind tasting evenings are a fun and interactive way to enjoy a unique dining experience. A selection of signature wines is available to exquisitely complement each dish, all of which are personally presented by the chef. The relaxing sounds of slack key guitar in the background provide the final touch of perfection to what is already sure to be a memorable evening out.†

With its beautiful setting, exceptional cuisine and superbly-fresh ingredients, there is no better way to celebrate or just enjoy the company of friends or a loved one than spending a night out at the CanoeHouse. This high-quality dining establishment is open for dinner from 5.30pm until 8.30pm every Monday through to Saturday and for cocktails from 5.30pm until 9.00pm on the same days.
