The Hanalei Gourmet

The Hanalei Gourmet is a casual restaurant serving American fare along the main road in the charming town of Hanalei. Choose from outdoor, indoor, or bar seating at this north shore café.

Grab a light lunch by choosing one of the many salads or sandwiches The Hanalei Gourmet has on offer. Try the chicken salad boat with “Hawaiian Style” macadamia nut chicken salad stuffed into a half of a fresh papaya or avocado, or build your own sandwich from a variety of meats, vegetables, and freshly baked breads. Enjoy the jumbo coconut shrimp or artichoke dip as pupus (appetizers) before dinner. The dinner menu includes hearty options such as rib eye steak and grilled ginger chicken. Try the mac nut fried chicken for a local taste, with the chicken breaded with Japanese style panko flakes and Hawaiian macadamia nuts and served on a bed of cabbage with guava lime sauce. Pastas and burgers are also available, and be sure to save room for a refreshing fruit smoothie or homemade cookies from the bakery.

If you’re planning a day of hiking along the jaw-dropping Na Pali Coast, paddling up the Hanalei River, or catching the waves at nearby Hanalei Bay, The Hanalei Gourmet will help you pack a lunch to keep you refueled on your adventure. Their deli provides insulated coolers packed with sandwiches, pastries, and fine wine, making your meal easily transportable for whatever adventures the day holds.

Enjoy the live music scene at The Hanalei Gourmet on Sunday and Wednesday evenings, when you can enjoy your meal along with local tunes. Let your conversation linger over a cold, micro brewed draft, glass of wine, or tropical cocktail.
