Our Grandchildren LOVE the Rainbow Lanai to eat their Breakfast Buffet and or Dinners as well. The variety of food offered takes care of all appetites from Vegans to the hardy beef and seafood eaters. The service staff are always pleasant and courteous.............

We stopped by for our first breakfast the day after we checked in. We waited in line even though according to our Ali’i bracelet perk- we were to be seated before everyone else first. I was asked what I wanted. Either the 30 buffet or...More

Again, almost $100 for a family of 4 for breakfast. Cheaper to go to McDonald's a block away. I don't mind spending money, but this resort gouges people for their meals. Go off the resort or go to a ABC store and grab breakfasts for...More

Buffet breakfast over $41.00 without the tip. We had a late breakfast 10:00am, so there was a limited selection of seating. No beach front views for us nor a view of the pond that surrounded the restaurant. The food was fresh and absolutely delicious. I...More

I actually read the reviews of this restaurant before going there for breakfast today. Yes, it’s expensive! It was however better than expected. Would I go back? Definitely if it was better priced. The service and food was good.

The food was ok but the cost of 2 breakfasts, drinks with 2 mimosas was $102. Might be acceptable for Waikiki but it was enough that we'll go somewhere else.

Breakfast buffet was hideously overpriced for the quality (or lack thereof). The only thing that was good quality was the fresh fruit, of which they had a decent selection. And the rice. Other than that, everything was very sub-par and not good at all. There...More

I liked the breakfast buffet at Rainbow Lanai a lot. Staff was very friendly. Food was good - especially the Omelettes from the egg station. For the price charged, I would like to also get a waffle/crêpe station, cafe latte etc. Overall it’s too expensive.

This is a great place for breakfast. There is a wide selection for breakfast buffet style. Staff is friendly. Open air restaurant. No reservations needed. The food is good and you can go back up for seconds or thirds. Fixed price.

This is a buffet with many different items. They have an omelet bar in addition. I'm not positive but they may have an alternative for just a continental breakfast option with limited items. The food is delicious but not... More
