The windward side of any Hawaiian Island means it's lush and green, and Oahu's is exactly that. Although this is the countryside of the island, within its jungles and beaches it caresses an abundance of wonderful places to eat. Spanning from the far east town of Waimanalo and all the way to the North Shore, Windward Oahu will keep you fed well and happy for days.
At the end of the seven-mile miracle on the North Shore lies several amazing restaurants. Pa'akai inside of Turtle Bay Resort is the newest farm to table restaurant on the Windward Side. With offerings such as locally sourced fish, steaks and vegetables highlighted with jalapenos martinis, the restaurants always satisfies customers. The sea inspired ambiance set over the ocean makes an elegant place to eat.
For a true Hawaiian experience, drop by a traditional luau feast at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie. Traditional Hawiian food like poi, taro, lomi salmon and kalua pig will fill you up while watching Polynesian dancing and fire knife shoes. The celebration is truly fun for the whole family.
Leilei's Bar & Grill is an upscale, yet casual place to eat that rest right on a world class golf course. Children can roam the putting green while parents sip drinks on the tiki torch lit lanai. Fish plates, steaks and salads put an elegant spin on grill food.
While exploring the valleys, waterfall laden cliffs and sandy beaches of Windward Oahu, experience the best food in the area.
