Best Buffets on Kauai Offer an Abundance of Food and Cuisines



Buffets are often a vacation favorite because the family can fill up at what's generally an affordable price. On Kauai, there's plenty of buffets and what great is that the cuisines offered vary greatly. Kauai has buffets with Hawaiian food, local food, American food and traditional breakfasts buffets. From high end resort buffets to casual local style buffets, we're directing you to the top ten buffets on Kauai.

For a traditional breakfast buffet visit the Ilima Terrace or the Naupaka Terrace, both making a home in a resort. The latter also offers an Asian dinner buffet that reflects the food of local cultures. A famous Kauai buffet is the Brick Oven Pizza buffet, which offers a large amount of varied dishes, from pastas to pizzas to dessert. For a Hawaiian spin on buffet, make reservations for Smith's Tropical Paradise Luau. This is a full night of entertainment, food, dancing and music that's ideal for the whole family.

For a local experience at a low key buffet, the Hanama'ulu Restaurant is a local favorite. This buffet highlights local dishes that offer a variety of cuisines from Asian to Hawaiian. Meanwhile, the only Mexican buffet on the island is served at the Olympic Cafe, where a happy hour taco buffet can serve as the start to a night out in Kapa'a on a Friday night.
