Rainbow Lanai is located right off of the beach at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. This is located on the ground floor of the Rainbow Tower and is directly beneath the Bali Steak & Seafood which is on the 1st floor. The Rainbow Lanai is all about all things breakfast. As you sit along the koi pools, you'll be able to... More

On one of our days here, there was a tropical storm and rained all day. We went down and had the breakfast buffet. While a little more than I'd like to spend for breakfast. There was an amazing assortment of food and a chef preparing omelets to order. Especially nice to have all the fresh juices and other special Hawaiian... More

Did the breakfast buffet here this morning. Great selection. Fresh and good. My server, "SKY," is the BEST! Best meal I have had here in the Hilton Hawaiian Village. A great way to start the day!

This brunch is located in the Rainbow Tower of the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The only option for breakfast in the Rainbow Lanai is brunch. It has many different options for both American and the Asian culture. The omelet station was my favorite! It had many different combinations that you chose yourself, including Spam. The cold options are too many to... More

The Rainbow Lanai is a buffet breakfast restaurant located on property at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. It is located in the Rainbow Tower. Service was excellent with no waiting on a Friday morning around 7:30am. Saturday morning at 8:30am was very busy with the wait being about 20 minutes but not bad. The hostess greeted us with a warm welcome... More

This place was $34 per person. They only had an omelet station no waffle station. But they had everything else you could imagine. We enjoyed it but only ate there once based on the price.

We went for Christmas Day, New Years Day and day before we left to go home back to the freezing temperatures. The brunch was beautiful all you can eat.

It was our last morning at the Hilton, so we decided to treat ourselves to the breakfast buffet. The food was great and the service was great, but it was definitely pricey. We had a great seat outside right next to the pond. My little boy REALLY loved eating next to the fish.

Noisy and overpriced ($36.95 for a breakfast buffet?). We couldn't get the waiters' attention to get a glass of water, even though the place was less then half full. They were not overworked that morning. And, we had to serve ourselves. The food quality was not as good as Tropics, and at Tropics, we had table service, and more reasonable... More

I am only speaking of the breakfast buffet- not thrilled and do not think it was worth the money- if you do not have a breakfast package included with your hotel, i would see if you can find another place for breakfast- if you have to pay you may as well explore your options. The select was subpar- in my... More
