My flight to Moloka'i landed very early so, earlier, I was asking a friend about Moloka'i. She recommended Kualapu'u Cookhouse. I love the "If you're in a hurry, you're on the wrong island" quote on the menu. Breakfast was corn beef hash which was good....More

If you are seeking fine dining, Molokai is not the place for you. On the other hand if you're looking for a laid back vibe and genuine "old Hawaii" it's the place to be. We had several meals at the Kualapu'u Cookhouse and everything was...More

Very nice restaurant on an island that only has a few places to eat. I would eat here again even if there were 100 restaurants on Molokai. It's bring your own alcohol so shop beforehand if you want drinks with your meal. I had the...More
