Surrounded by a tropical moat, this acclaimed restaurant is located just steps from the ocean at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. The dining room includes white-clothed tables, a large aquarium, and panoramic views of the water, while the outdoor terrace provides additional seating beside a lava-rock fire pit. The restaurant serves regionally inspired cuisine for breakfast and dinner, with about 90% of ingredients sourced from local farms and waters. Breakfast dishes include sweet bread French toast with pineapple-orange-rosemary syrup, while the dinner menu is mostly steak and seafood, such as Keahole lobster with sweet pea rice.

Writers, artists and actors from the nearby Royal Dramatic Theater come to this roughly 20-year-old hangout for the <em>husmanskost</em>: stout, starchy Swedish home cooking. The room is nothing special—wooden chairs, marble-topped tables—but it has drawn various celebrities, including Mick Jagger.

We loved: Burger and fries.
