**Update May 2023 – Please note that our Tuesday evening pre-fixe farm-to-table menu is no longer available. In lieu of the dinner, our team at Hualani’s will offer exquisite, hand-crafted specials and craft cocktails made with ingredients straight from The Farm!
The Farm at Hōkūala and Hualani’s have built upon their existing partnership by offering guests a 4-course pre-fixe farm-to-table menu every Tuesday night. Created weekly, the menu is entirely based on what is fresh and in season. Our Farm-to-Table Tuesday night dinner is an authentic culinary experience inspired by a sense of place, and driven by local suppliers and fresh-picked ingredients from the farm.
The calming ambiance, service with aloha, and sprawling ocean and mountain views make this a once-in-a-lifetime (or once-a-week!) experience.

As you may have learned in our previous blog about The Farm at Hōkūala, Hualani’s and the farm have a special cyclical relationship where the farm provides seasonal produce for a weekly farm-to-table menu (often including small edible florals), and then kitchen scraps are returned to the farm for composting. It’s so important to us at Timbers to respect and replenish the ʻāina. After all, it is what makes our delicious and memorable evenings at Hualani’s possible!
Enjoy a good tasting? Hualani’s offers an exclusive wine pairing option to compliment your meal, or you can choose to enjoy any of our well-balanced craft cocktails from the bar. With the picturesque Ninini Lighthouse in the distance, breaking waves against the cliffs, and a serene infinity pool overlooking it all, you will feel transported to paradise before even taking a bite.
Be sure to make a reservation via OpenTable or the Concierge before your next visit, as this weekly special event does often sell out.
