'ULU Ocean Grill & Sushi Lounge Restaurant Review

: 'ULU Ocean Grill & Sushi Lounge at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai takes its name from the Hawaiian word for breadfruit, which was a staple food of the Polynesian people. Perched right on the beach, the restaurant affords fantastic ocean views. The segmented space comprises a series of rooms as well as raised patios for taking full advantage of Hawaii's beautiful climate. The kitchen has a rich bounty of ingredients to draw from as 'ULU supports more than 160 local farmers and fishermen. A morning at the resort can be made even more memorable with a cup of Kona coffee and eggs Benedict or lemon ricotta pancakes. At dinner, ahi poke is made tableside with ogo, Maui onions, white shoyu and sesame oil. Crispy local octopus "takoyaki style" and roasted beets with goat cheese are other notable starters. Continue with lobster and shrimp pad thai or a seafood special. The Hawaii Roll, with ahi, mango and avocado, is an offering from the sushi section of the menu. End on a sweet note with coconut Pavlova, yuzu parfait or the nightly soufflé. Desserts range from soufflés (chocolate or the flavor of the evening) to coconut Pavlova. The wine list is concise and studied, and there are also island-inspired cocktails.
