Orchids Restaurant Review

: One of the most beautiful restaurants in all Hawaii, Orchids boasts an open-air look, dressed in crisp, white linen, with striking ocean views. When you make a reservation, ask for a table on the terrace. The focus is on seafood, from the Big Island abalone with a delicate corn bisque and cumin to a seafood feast for two featuring island-sourced Kona lobster, onaga and Kahuku shrimp steamed with makrut lime leaves and with an intriguing trio of aïolis --- saffron-garlic, harissa and miso. During lunch, try the fish ‘n’ chips with crushed potato fries or opt for the seafood burger composed of lobster and crab. Chef Darryl Fujita also prepares opah and pork with togarashi (Japanese seven-spice), stir-fry beans and Kabayaki-glazed Kurobuta pork. Finish with the Halekulani coconut cake with raspberry coulis; you've never had coconut cake until you've had this one. If you have the opportunity, try the Sunday brunch buffet.
