Description: Gaylord's offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Located on the ground floor of the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Organic Greens Salads, Local Fish, Meat and Vegetarian Entrees, and Banana Cream Pie for Dessert! After your meal take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the rum shop or take a ride on the plantation train. Join us at Gaylord's to enjoy the best of what Kauai has to offer in island food and experience. Call for reservations and details on weekly entertainment. Memorable by day...Unforgettable by Night.

Went there with my wife for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. They gave us their best table, in our opinion, since it was overlooking the beautiful gardens of this property with no obstructions. If you go, ask for either table 9 or 39. We started with an appetizer of sashimi and the freshness of the fish was evident. We then had the grilled catch and was delicious. Dessert was a shared bread pudding. Some people consider this restaurant a $$$$ but we don’t think so. Our entrees where about $30 which is the price in any US city for a well-executed dish. Great ambiance, service and food.

This restaurant is more of an all-inclusive dining, buying, sightseeing experience. I feel like I landed in an Italian villa or something. Restaurant seating is horseshoe-shaped with the interior opening to an outdoor courtyard. Good service and food. Wandering around you feel like you are a guest of someone's home, yet it is actually wall to wall with little shops, an art exhibit, train ride, etc. Attentive staff make you feel welcomed, unrushed, and relaxed here. Wife loves it. That's the key right there. There are plenty of opportunities to grab a picture without interrupting other guests. Great use of space. Chickens here sure know how to use it.

A beautiful lunch menu in a lovely setting. Great service. Food was beautiful. Three people, three different choices off the lunch menu, all dishes were presented beautifully, fresh ingredients and full of flavour. We are going back again!

We had the pleasure to have a lunch time meal at Gaylord’s. The menu provides enough choice with the vegetable spring rolls delicious. The wait staff were very professional and attentive and the court yard setting was beautiful. A great drinks list as well. Highly recommend!
