Decadence is the first word that comes to mind when someone mentions Orchids–the glorious oceanfront restaurant tucked away in the Halekulani Hotel, one of the island’s most understated, yet luxurious hotels. The single reason for such a regal descriptor is their Sunday and holiday buffets, which are without a doubt unrivaled.
The Sunday brunch buffet boasts everything from eggs benedict, sushi, dozens of salads, omelets, pancakes, a waffle bar to a dessert table bigger than a king-sized bed. And the holiday buffets–oh, my! They sometimes book-up an entire year in advance, but if you’re one of the lucky ones to snag a table then you’re going to find yourself smiling and eating for hours. That said, their a la carte menu is superb, especially for breakfast.
If this isn’t enough to lure you to Orchids, then maybe it’s worth mentioning that their service is outstanding. It’s difficult to find a more attentive waitstaff anywhere on the island. So sit back, eat up and take pleasure in the ocean view and the gentle caress of trade winds.
