There is no real point to this review as the Canoe House is now closed until 2020 as the Mauna Lani undergoes a complete renovation. The views are terrific, there was sufficient covered dining when the rain blew in and the food was terrific.

We were celebrating a special occasion and we were not disappointed! The Canoe House has great ocean views from most tables. The dress code is Hawaii casual. The food was amazing. Expensive but worth it. When we sat down they brought out fresh Hawaiian rolls...very...More
