Exploring West O'ahu: Where to Eat, Stay, and Get Pampered
Food + Drink
Dining options are limited to the resorts and a little shopping center across the street. The newest restaurant is Mina’s Fish House, which reopened at the Four Seasons last month under the direction of award-winning chef Michael Mina, following the success of his new concept in Waikiki, The Street. Standouts of the seafood-centric menu include the Louie salad, seared Hawaiian snapper, and poke—done right, without all the mainland fuss. Also at the Four Seasons is the Southern Italian restaurant Noe. All the pasta is made in-house. Try the baked paccheri, described as a deconstructed lasagna.
Equally decadent is the famed Sunday brunch at La Hiki Kitchen, rumored to be the best on the island, with poke and seafood stations, a DIY bloody mary bar, and more. On Friday to Tuesday from 5 to 6 p.m., La Hiki also offers a Shake It Up happy hour with a $20 hamburger and milkshake special.
At the shopping center across the street, the casual Monkeypod Kitchen offers craft beer on tap, regional Hawaiian cuisine, and nightly live music.
