There is a number of menu items to choose from. You are close to the Boat Dock to get a ride around the resort or you can take the tram.

Located in the Ocean Tower complex the cantina offers good burritos, tacos etc with a Hawaii flare - Kalua Pork taco etc. Seems more reasonably priced than many other restaurants at the Hilton.
