But if you’re looking for an afternoon of relaxing by the pool or beach, Seaside Grill in Kahala Hotel is the perfect place for you. Dining Out caught up with friends Liz Asam and Lisa Lawson relaxing at the eatery one afternoon. According to Asam, Kahala Hotel is the perfect destination resort for people who don’t want to go far from Honolulu.

Liz Asam: “This place is a piece of paradise in the heart of Honolulu. The lentils (in the Vegetarian Nachos, $12) are great. It has great texture and flavor. You get all the flavor without the heaviness.”

Lisa Lawson: “It’s beautiful here. The Tropical Caipirinha ($12) is really light and refreshing, and the atmoshere is relaxing. The Vegetarian Nachos ($12) aren’t salty and everything is just right — the lentils give it the right texture. You’re not even missing the meat.”
