Very Limited Menu

This use to be a favorite of ours. Then there was a fire and after the restaurant has been rebuilt it seems the menu is being brought back in stages. The service and food was very good but we would like to see a larger variety of menu items.

Mediterranean Gourmet is fine in all respects. It's location is right on the ocean, about 10 minutes past Hanalei, in the beautiful Haena area. The service is superb--friendly, attentive and fast. Thre is often live Hawaiian music, which is excellent, and the food is uniformly delicious. This is the third time we have been there, and have loved it all... More

Celebrated 2 anniversaries, 43 and 5. Staff never mentioned it although it was stated in writing when making the reservation online. Should have at least made an effort. Food is OK, pricey for what we had as nothing to write home about. Appetizers, same. Staff very friendly and outgoing, excellent. Came back a different night for the bar. Different guitarists...

The N Shore is lucky to have this place, even if there were other places to go in the area (and there's not), I will come back. We were treated well, with a full view of the ocean, we could have sat anywhere and had a great view. The food was wonderful, a full experience restaurant. Loved it.

I have a lot of allergies, they were able to make a bland boring salad, but we needed to eat so that's where we ate. Expensive for the portions even for Kauai. Beautiful view though. Slippery, slanted floors, be careful. Hubby said his meal was ok. Service was ok.

A great meal using fresh local ingredients - we had the special for late lunch which consisted of fresh fish on top of a salad- no regrets.Would definitely return!

Wish we had found this place earlier in our trip, because we would have returned multiple times. Instead, we had to settle for lunch the day before our departure. So sad, since the food was outstanding and the drinks were 'robust'. We will be returning if we ever visit Kauai again!

We dropped in for lunch after visiting the beaches and parks on the beautiful north side of Kauai. We were seated immediately and received very friendly and helpful service for our entire visit. The view of the ocean with its crashing waves was lovely. The fish wrap (marlin that day) and falafel wraps were very good. For dessert, we were... More

Our dishes were nothing special, but we ate here because we were staying on the property and didn't feel like driving into town. Service and atmosphere were pleasant. But the food wasn't really interesting, and also wasn't really tasty. Nothing horrible, but definitely not a highlight meal for the trip. Very mediocre food.

Always a great dinner with a Mediteranean flair. Bosses puts together a great menu, great wine selection and great service. All this with absolutely one of the best views for dining on the island.......spectacular!
