We can recommend two breakfast places at Disney’s Aulani Resort. They are both very good!
#1: Breakfast at ‘Ama’Ama Restaurant at Disney’s Aulani Resort
We had 10am breakfast reservations at ‘Ama’Ama to celebrate Ian’s 30th birthday.
Happy birthday, Ian!!! ❤
‘Ama ‘Ama is named after a mullet fish native to Hawaii, also known as striped mullet. The restaurant itself is meant to look like a fishing shack from the 1890’s.
For breakfast, you can choose from traditional breakfast favorites like eggs, waffles, bacon and pastries. Island specialties featuring fresh fish, local fruit, Portuguese sausage and other native ingredients are available daily.
All the online reviews said that breakfast was the best meal of the day served here.
THE DINING EXPERIENCE
Take in the enchanting sights of Ko Olina Beach as you dine at this open-air restaurant.
Style and Theme
The restaurant is named after the ‘AMA‘AMA, a local mullet fish—and it’s inspired by the fishing settlements along the leeward coast of O‘ahu that date back to the 12th century.
‘AMA‘AMA is designed to resemble a beachside house. Its spacious dining room features a thatched roof, mosaic designs, a fountain and a reflecting pool.
‘AMA‘AMA is located beside the Waikolohe Valley pool area, just steps from the beach.
