Hau Tree Lanai
The vine-like hau tree is ideal for sitting under, and it's said that the one that spreads itself over this beachside courtyard is the very one that shaded Robert Louis Stevenson as he mused and wrote about Hawaii. In any case, diners are still enjoying the shade and the view at this romantic beach side restaurant. The poi pancakes at breakfast, papaya chicken salad at lunch, and fresh fish or steak at dinner are all favorites. Dinner entree portions are quite large. www.kaimana.com. Reservations essential.
