If you are staying at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai this is a nice place, but be prepared to pay over $80 for two people to eat breakfast. The buffet has a nice selection of juice and fruit, plus omelets made fresh.

Plenty of selections each day. They changed the choices up every day. Highlights of the week were the spam kimchi fried rice and the corned beef hash.

We have gone to the Ilima Terrace for breakfast each morning. The views are nice. We have had the buffet each day, which is excellent. The servers are very attentive. All in all, we have enjoyed the restaurant each morning.

Any age. There were many families with children and they ranged from babies to teenagers. The buffet was delicious and a lot of choices for children.
