‘AMA ‘AMA is a fine dining, open-air restaurant at Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawai’i. Reservations for this contemporary island dining experience open 30 days in advance of your stay and will likely fill up fast, as it is currently only open for dinner. Guests will enjoy locally-inspired dishes from an all-new menu while enjoying the oceanfront seating! “‘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. New light fixtures inspired by traditional Hawaiian fish baskets and an alluring central light fixture composed of fin-like elements that swim above the entrance, enhance the connection between the restaurant and its namesake, the ‘ama‘ama fish—historically the most abundant and vital fish of Hawai‘i.”

“The newly reimagined fine-dining experience features a delicious 4-course, prix-fixe dinner menu created by the talented Chef De Cuisine, Nicholas Amoriello. Each course pays homage to the spirit of Hawai‘i, with unique flavors, high-quality ingredients, and locally sourced fish and produce. The menu is almost completely gluten-free, with a plant-based option available for every course to ensure every type of dietary need can experience the very best of Hawai‘i’s flavors!
Our new menu offers an array of contemporary island cuisine, including dishes like the “lox” opakapaka with greens, citrus, and raw and pickled vegetables; and the savory Pork Belly with “scanlan sauce,” onion, kiawe honey, and Okinawan sweet potato.
Pastry Chef Carolyn Portuondo has prepared a decadent selection of desserts, incorporating iconic local flavors such as lilikoʻi, calamansi, coconut, mango, macadamia, and Kona coffee. ‘AMA‘AMA also features a globally curated wine list fit for all types of celebrations.”
