Enjoy the taste of great homecooked food served with Waimanalo country charm, walking distance from Hale ‘Nalo. Serving slow-smoked BBQ meats, homemade sauces, creative salads, sandwiches,  and wraps. Now famous for their fish tacos! The menu is designed to showcase locally-sourced and home-grown ingredients. We love to support this cafe as we are aligned with their values–not to mention– the food rocks! Many excellent vegetarian options. Make sure you try their bok-choy slaw. Details

This family-owned and run establishment is the quintessential “hole in the wall” Hawaiian food place. Honestly, it not going to win any awards for decor but the food is as authentic as you’ll ever find in Hawaii. So, if you’re down Waikiki-way and want a plate of real Hawaiian food, this is the place to go. Details

Savor over 50 wines by the glass at Kailua’s toast of the town. Indulge yourself with an array of succulent steaks, delectable seafood and casual gourmet fare. Enjoy savory hot pot classics, thin crust pizzas and lobster bisque to live for. (Our favorite is the boeuf bourguignon which would, I reckon, please the palate of Ms. Child herself.) Upscale/casual. Live music every Friday and Saturday. Details:
