The Century-Old Restaurant In Hawaii That’s Surrounded By Lush Greenery

Just minutes away from the bustling state capital of Honolulu — but still within the city limits — is the lush Manoa Valley. This residential area is home to the University of Hawaii at Manoa, receives almost daily rain, and was the site of the first sugarcane and coffee plantations in the Hawaiian Islands. And hidden deep within Manoa Valley are three amazing destinations worthy of a Saturday full of exploration: Manoa Falls and the Lyon Arboretum. Also found within this verdant valley? A remarkable restaurant nestled amidst the trees in the surrounding rainforest.
