Lovely Restaurant by the Sea

've always enjoyed this restaurant. It's a long drive at night though to get back to other areas of the island. The road can be difficult at night along the cliffs so take care if you decide to drive out for dinner. The food is good and the staff is very friendly.

We were on the North Shore and a couple of people recommended us to go to this restaurant. We arrived for lunch the 8th of August to a nice looking restaurant in a nice setting and had a nice table overlooking the sea. But the food was not good at all. My Wife had a special Rocket Salad with goat... More

Lunch is the ticket here. The restaurant has an ocean front setting. The view is amazing and the food did not disappoint. The menu is varied and inventive. The Greek specials are done very well and the local fish was fantastic. Add a great wait staff and tasty cocktail and you have a winner worth the few miles drive north... More

The service was very friendly, but the food was just ok. We both had the special (a Moroccan tuna dish), so possibly this was not indicative of their menu as a whole. However, compared to the other restaurants we ate at in Kauai, this food was average. Location and view is top notch.

My husband and I decided to stop by here after a great day at the beach. We saw that they offered Happy Hour specials so we decided to order one of the THREE items they offered; which was Hummus. It was so bland that my husband had to ask for extra olives, because it only came with one, to add... More

Half priced hummus and pita bread during happy hour! A great deal ($4) for A LOT of pita bread and hummus. Very delicious and made fresh when you order! The pita bread was delicious and perfectly toasted:) we ordered two servings for a family of 6 and had a blast! A great atmosphere and crew!:)

On our drive to beaches at Hanelei we spotted the sign for the restaurant and decided to return on our way back for Happy Hour. What a surprise! A fabulous view with Happy Hour wine, great salads, and homemade tzatziki with pita points

I've eaten here about 4 times over maybe 6 years. The only reason you should eat here is for the location on the beach, which is why I keep going back. They should cut the hedge lower between them and the beach, though, which is like everything about the Hanalei Colony Resort, where it is located; that is it is... More

We went to the Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant at the resort twice. All the staff there were very friendly, and the food was good. The kitchen burned in a fire a while back, so they only prepare simple dishes. They were running ceiling fans, but the temperature in the place was oppressively hot. Not sure if they lost the A/C in... More

An out of the way place but what a view and nice upscale feeling. The menu doesn't have a lot of variety, but everything that our party had to eat was delicious. Attentive waitstaff.
