Favorite Dish: Agnello Marinato

Nestled beneath swaying palms, Il Lupino is the gem of the oasis that is The Royal Hawaiian Hotel’s Coconut Grove. With frequent live performances on the outskirts of Il Lupino’s patio, the sophisticated ambiance is a natural complement to the diversity of flavors offered here. This season, Il Lupino welcomes aboard its new Executive Chef, Raymond Cruz, a veteran of the restaurant industry of over 15 years.


Chef Raymond looks forward to adding a personal touch to Il Lupino’s tradition of great, authentic Italian food, “committed to using the freshest local and seasonal ingredients” in every dish, from Il Lupino’s internationally renowned buttermilk pancakes to its homemade tagliatelle pastas, giving each dish a superior taste and texture.
