Roy’s Kāʻanapali recently appointed Jessie Anacleto as the restaurant’s new executive chef.

Born and raised on the island of Kauaʻi, Anacleto grew up experiencing the different flavors of the many different ethnicities and cultures that make Hawaiʻi unique.

After attending the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, California, Anacleto returned home and landed the Sous Chef position at Keoki’s Paradise in Poʻipū in 2009. He was promoted to Executive Chef in 2010.

He joined Roy Yamaguchi’s team at the Poʻipū location in 2014. After completing the rigorous three month training program, Anacleto was offered the Sous Chef position with Roy’s on Maui. He was offered the Executive Chef position at Roy’s Kāʻanapali in July.


Roy’s Kāʻanapali also announced it is now open for breakfast. New breakfast items include Yama Mama Meatloaf Loco Moco with shitake mushroom gravy; Kalua Pork Skillet; Blackened Ahi Benedict; Crispy Crab Cake Benedict; and Banana Pancakes.

The new breakfast menu rolled out on Oct. 1, and is the only Roy’s location to offer breakfast.

Roy’s is open daily for breakfast from 6 to 10:30 a.m., lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and dinner begins at 5 p.m.
