Tahiti Nui is the oldest restaurant in Hanalei and a local favorite. Since being featured in the George Clooney movie, The Descendants, it’s also become a hotspot for visitors.
Keep in mind, Tahiti Nui is a small restaurant and can get crowded. Since they don’t take reservations, I recommend coming for lunch or an early dinner. The menu is tasty and as authentic as it is varied. From macadamia panko crusted fresh ono to build-your-own pizzas, you will definitely leave satisfied.
If you’re coming for dinner, make plans to stay and enjoy the live local music featured nightly. Always a good time, you’ll want to add this spot to your list.
