Mesmerizing ocean waves crashing along the Hawaiian shores underneath the moonlight is about as fancy as any dining outing will ever get. Hualalai's culinary team of top chefs and professionals have forged the finest relationships with more than 160 farmers and fishermen to bring you what you now know as ULU Ocean Grill. A remarkable 75% of the cuisine presented to it's diners at ULU is from our beautiful and preserved Big Island of Hawaii. The ambiance at ULU is like no other. First, when you walk up to the exterior entrance along side the massive swimming pool and oceanfront spa, you will be greeted by an original ohia post archway overhead. Then as you wind down the bridge type elevated ipe wood path, you will be surrounded by the most enchanting fish ponds from thousands of years ago. Upon final arrival at the hostess desk, you will know you have finally arrived as you will see the simple yet stunning ULU sign.
ULU is an innovative dining experience that brings forth a casual yet upmost elegant approach to enjoying that special evening out. Many visitors from all over the world, US, and especially California have come to love it for it's impressive and luxurious presentation. The oven roasted whole fish, lobster pad thai, and table side Ahi Poke are memorable meals that everyone has come to love. The Tomahawk steak is a fine dining option for the most pickiest diner who has had the pleasure of dining in the fanciest of restaurants the world over. Dom Perignon and fine boutique wines are available at your fingertips and at a moments notice. There are very few restaurants in the world that will ever present their visitors and patrons with this type of direct oceanfront setting all the while serving the best food and providing service like no other. In our professional opinion ULU Ocean Grill, KPC, and Manta are the top 3 restaurants on the entire Big Island of Hawaii.
