It wasn’t easy tracking down the best gluten free Oahu restaurant options. I ate 3-4 meals a day for almost a month.

But, I made a list and didn’t gain a pound. It’s win-win for both of us.

Lemongrass Vietnamese And Thai Cuisine – 20 Kainehe St, Kailua, HI 96734

Lemongrass offers a lot of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. And, the menu outlines the allergens for each dish. It’s important to note that Lemongrass is closed for two hours between lunch and dinner. The restaurant is quiet, clean, and offers easy parking. And, it’s a great spot for lunch or dinner if you are driving to North Shore from Ko Olina or Honolulu.



Polynesian Cultural Center – 55-370 Kamehameha Hwy Laie, HI 96762

The Polynesian Cultural Center is about 20 minutes away from Pipeline and North Shore. You will find a few gluten-free options. But, the best gluten-free option is the crepes at Delice Crepes. They will make gluten-free crepes from buckwheat flour, and you’ll find a few unique combinations.



Roy’s Beach House – At Turtle Bay Resort 57-091 Kamehameha Hwy, Kahuku, HI 96731

You can easily spend a full day at Turtle Bay Resort enjoying the beaches and activities.

Or, Roy’s Beach House is also an option for lunch or dinner if your driving to Honolulu or North Shore.

Roy’s Beach House offers a few flavorful gluten-free salads. During peak season, I recommend a reservation.



The Beet Box Cafe – 66-437 Kamehameha Hwy #104, Haleiwa, HI 96712

Once you get to North Shore, you will find three of my favorite gluten-free dishes in Oahu.

The Beet Box Cafe is 100% vegetarian, and they offer a lot of vegan and gluten-free options. If you are staying in North Shore, The Beet Box Cafe is your one-stop shop for breakfast and lunch. The prices are reasonable, and you’ll find a parking lot within a few blocks.

Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck – 66-472 Kamehameha Hwy, Haleiwa, HI 96712

Moving right along to lunchtime – If you can spot Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck, I highly recommend ordering anything on the menu. You’ll likely find a long line, but the line moves quickly, and you won’t be disappointed. The staff reported that all the dishes are gluten-free.

V-land Tacos – Food Truck 66 Kamehameha Hwy, Haleiwa, HI 96712

Hands down – the best tacos in Hawaii. If I moved to Hawaii, I would live within walking distance of the truck.

And, being gluten-free, I had to eat a lot of gluten-free tacos in Hawaii, since that was the only option on some restaurant menus. So, give me some credit, find the truck, and devour.

V-land Tacos is open for lunch and dinner.

The Nook Neighborhood Bistro – 1035 University Ave #105, Honolulu, HI 96826

Moving along to Honolulu –

The Neighborhood Bistro was one of my most memorable meals in Oahu. I had the Mochiko Chicken And Waffles and The Breakfast Risotto.

The staff reported that most of the menu is gluten-free. The restaurant is small, and I recommend making a reservation. They are open for brunch and dinner, but I recommend taking a look at the website for the most up to date restaurant hours. The Nook Neighborhood Bistro is somewhat tricky to find, but I still recommend booking a table, and using a map.

Loving Hut – 1614 S King St, Honolulu, HI 96826

The Loving Hut is 100% vegan and offers a lot of gluten-free options. They have two locations, and I recommend the place on King Street. You will find street parking near the restaurant.

Island Vintage Coffee – 92 -1048 Olani St, 3-103C, Kapolei, HI 96707

Moving right along to Ko Olina –

If you’re staying in Ko Olina, you can take the shuttle to the Ko Olina Center and enjoy a few meals and shop all day. I recommend Island Vintage Coffee, Monkeypod Kitchen, and Just Tacos Mexican Grill And Cantina.

Island Vintage Coffee has a few blended gluten-free drinks and macaroons.

Island Vintage Coffee In Ko Olina Offers Macaroons And A Few Blended Gluten Free Drinks

Monkeypod Kitchen – Ko Olina 92-1048 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

I ordered the fresh fish tacos, and they were excellent. The kitchen prepares them with large pieces of fresh fish, avocado, jalapeno, and tomatoes. If you are in the Ko Olina area, I would try the fish tacos at Monkeypod Kitchen before trying other fish tacos. They were my second favorite fish taco in Oahu.


Just Tacos Mexican Grill And Cantina – 92-1046 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

Continuing through the Ko Olina Center –

If you love meat, Just Tacos Mexican Grill has some great options. They are always busy, and I highly recommend reservations. They reported that the tacos are gluten-free, and they offer other gluten-free Mexican options. I tried dozens of tacos in Hawaii, and the gluten-free taco entree was one of the better options in Oahu. The shuttle stops in the front of the restaurant. It’s the last stop in the center before the shuttle goes to The Four Seasons Resort.



Longhi’s Ko Olina At Marriotts Ko Olina Beach Club – 92-161 Waipahe Pl, Kapolei, HI 96707

Longhi’s is the main restaurant at Marriott’s Ko Olina Beach Club and offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The staff is knowledgeable about food allergies, and I found a lot of options for lunch and dinner.


The Marketplace Marriott – 92-161 Waipahe Pl, Kapolei, HI 96707

The Marketplace is located inside the Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club, and it’s the convenient store on site. If you are staying at the Marriott, I recommend buying a few gluten-free options for snacks and breakfast since the nearby options are limited. Surprisingly, I found fresh options in the refrigerator that were labeled gluten-free and/or vegan.


Minas Fish House At Four Seasons Resort Oahu At Ko Olina – 92-1001 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

And, now we are going to explore the four restaurants at Four Seasons Resort Oahu At Ko Olina –

Minas Fish House is one of the best gluten-free options in Oahu. And, it’s one of the most memorable dining experiences. It overlooks the lagoon and the Pacific Ocean. Plus, it’s the best place in Ko Olina to watch the sunset.

After two visits, I ordered almost everything on the menu. But, I highly recommend the following: garlic and duck fat french fries, Singapore street noodles, and black garlic and miso black cod.

Noe At Four Seasons Beach Resort –

Noe offers Italian cuisine in an intimate romantic setting. They offer a lot of gluten-free options, a designated vegan menu, homemade pasta sauces, local seafood, and an extensive wine selection. For a vegetarian and gluten-free guest, I recommend the tagliatelle.

I highly recommend Noe for a romantic evening, wedding, or large party staying in Ko Olina. The service is exceptional.

The Waterman Bar And Grill At Four Seasons Resort Oahu At Ko Olina – 92-1001 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

The Waterman Bar And Grill offers the best gluten-free and vegetarian burger.

If I had to eat gluten-free and vegetarian burgers for the rest of my life, this would be it. Don’t miss it.

The grill offers lunch from 11:00-6:00 PM overlooking the pool and lagoon. The grill offers a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a full day of just doing nothing.

La Hiki At Four Seasons Resort Oahu At Ko Olina – 92-1001 Olani St, Kapolei, HI 96707

La Hiki serves lunch and dinner overlooking the pool, lagoon, and Pacific ocean. They offer the most gluten-free options for breakfast in Ko Olina.
