It's a hidden gem, a diamond in the rough and it's situated on the sixth floor of Lani Kai Island Resort, high above the sand and sea. Over looking the Gulf of Mexico, you truly have to see it to believe it. With breathtaking views, a completely reworked top-notch menu, and a half a million dollar renovation, The Island View Restaurant is ready to shock tourists and locals who laugh at the thought of the Lani Kai offering 'fine dining' and a new look.
