The casual elegance of the Mill House’s outdoor lanai, surrounded by tropical flowers and mountain grasses of the Waikapu
Valley, complements a farm-to-fork menu reflecting a bit of local paradise.

Insider’s tip What could be more Hawaiian than farm-fresh ingredients in dishes like Big Island Aliʻi mushroom or Hawaiian
grass-fed rib-eye? Cachaça cocktails and the signature Sesame Chocolate Bomb seal the deal.

“I have had the mouth-watering privilege of eating at places such as The Pig and The Lady,” shared actress Katrina Law of Hawaii 5-0 on her recent move to the islands. ”Everyone on Hawaii 5-0 went out of their way to make me feel welcome. I’ve had crew members’ mothers cook my family welcoming meals.”

Insider’s tip The Pig and The Lady continues to be a hot spot for star sightings. Past visitors have been Karen Gilland and Jack Black of Jumanji and Hawaii 5-0 cast members are regulars. Try the new Whole Branzino Cham Chéo salt-cured with rare mac khén pepper from Điên Biên with a bright lemongrass and herb sauce.
