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.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

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.
