We were looking for a nice place to have dinner on our final night on Kauai, without driving too far. This restaurant was recommended to us, but after reading some of the Trip Advisors reviews I wasn't to sure. We had a nice evening, having an early dinner so we were able to enjoy the beautiful view while it was... More

The food was excellent, especially the marinated artichoke appetizer (daily special) and the lamb and beef gyro dinner. Our server seemed to lose interest as the evening progressed and was nowhere to be found when we were ready for the check. The interior of the restaurant was dated and the musicians performing that night were lacking. However, the actual food... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant several years ago on our last trip to Kauai and enjoyed it so much then that we made it our choice for our last dinner here before our return home. I'm not sure what happened, but we were somewhat disappointed. We did have a lovely view of the ocean from our window seat.... More

My wife, brother, sister-in-law and I attended the luau held on Tuesday nights. What a refreshing change from the large luaus with the big production troupe, professional photographers, large numbers of cars and buses in the parking lot, long lines to get your food,etc. It kind of makes me think that this is closer to how luaus used to be...

This restaurant was mentioned as Ono in the Kauai Revealed book (it is in the Hanalei Colony Resort), and after a morning of snorkeling at Ke'e Beach, we were ready for a shady place to sit and re-energize. We arrived about 1 p.m. on a Friday, and there were only 3 other tables in use at the time, so no... More

Mediterranean Gourmet (5-7132 Kuhio Hwy., Haena, HI 96714, tel. 808-826-9875, www.kauaimedgourmet.com). Everyone recommends this restaurant. We do not and maybe it is because Dimitri The Greek is an expert on Mediterranean food. The place was lovely and Imad Beydoun, the owner and chef, was nice enough. The view is special. The food was not authentic and was not particularly good.... More

Had the lamb burger which suppose to be signature. Tasted like pedigree. I asked for a medium rare and got an overly cooked piece of meat. It was served on a pita that was fresh from the costco package. After hearing reviews, I thought this was gonna be a great eat. I was wrong. We made up for it by... More

This restaurant has a beautiful location on the beach. One of the few on the water in Kauai. The only problem it that it is way out in Hanalei.

Very good Mediterranean and very expensive. I had the Gyro which was $20+ Everyone I was with loved what they got. Atmosphere and table were very nice. Ocean front dining. Live hawaiian music. We didn't go to the Luau.

Went for dinner on August 16th on the recommendation of the concierge at the Westin. The drive over to hanelei was beautiful and the the most memorable part of the evening. The restaurant is located in a time share resort and when we arrived at 6 pm it was mostly empty except for a few young families, with the children... More
