Hau Tree Lanai Restaurant Review

: Dine outdoors on the spacious oceanfront lanai under a banyan tree that once sheltered Robert Louis Stevenson. Chef Rene Caba’s offerings highlight island seafood favorites. Miso-saké marinated salmon or the fresh catch of the day (perhaps kampachi, onaga or opakapaka) served grilled with a mango-citrus sauce brighten up the lighter side of the menu. Or opt for the Harris Ranch Black Angus filet served with a creamy green peppercorn béarnaise. Vegetarian diners will appreciate creative mains such as a tempeh cake drizzled with a turmeric mustard vinaigrette and balsamic. The restaurant exudes romance at sunset when the lights of the nearby Waikiki hotels reflect off the ocean and the stars glitter in the nighttime sky, all within earshot of the sound of crashing waves.
