Food was really fantastic. We tried a little of everything, and the special really stood out. Butterfish (I'm sure it has a more scientific name) was literally unbelievable. We subbed mashed potato and loved it. The rest was well prepared, our server was friendly and the order came right. It's a nice place for a nicer night out in this... More

Our Florida family held our son's and (now) daughter in laws rehearsal dinner at Mediterranean Gourmet. Having 30 people attending and making decisions from florida was a bit of a challenge for me. I contacted Yarrow and found from that day forward I had absolutely picked the right place! Everything I was looking for was found at the Mediterranean Gourmet!... More

We had two meals at The Mediterranean Gourmet - lunch and a Sunday brunch. On both visits we had a window seat with a wonderful ocean vista. Friendly service and good food. One of the big pluses of the restaurant is that it was a relaxing experience - none of the hurly, burly, noisy atmosphere of the restaurants in town.... More

This restaurant is not in Hanalei, but further on past the actual town. The road winds a Long the ocean and we ended up arriving quite early and were able to be seated far earlier than our reservation. We were seated at a window table with a spectacular view of the ocean. I had a teriyaki chicken shish-ke-bob and my... More

We decided to stop for an early dinner and were very pleased with the taster menu that is available between 5 and 6 pm only. Cost was $39 for 4 courses of Spanikopita, then Grilled Moon fish, then Felafel with lettuce, ending with coconut baklava. The service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Our server knew the menu well and offered... More

We were seated, the server took our orders. She brought drinks and promptly ignored us for a prolonged period of time. Our Lebanese fattoush salad was delivered and was OK, although my wife pointed out that the wrong parsley was used in it. The shish-kabobs were delivered later and were dried up, almost cold, and were almost impossible to remove... More

We had a lovely dinner here while in Kauai. It has great views of Hanaleih Bay and it's in a secluded part of town -- through a tiny road and one lane bridges. Very lovely meal and service was great. Light entertainment was a plus too.

Our family of six enjoyed an early dinner on March 17, 2014 at the Mediterranean Gourmet in Haena, Kauai on the North Shore. Since we arrived around 5:00 p.m. we had our choice of tables and were seated at a wonderful semi-private table that was partitioned off from the adjacent main dining area. We had an excellent view of the... More

We eat here every time we are in the area. Take the scenic drive to the end of the road to see the beautiful beaches,caves and hiking trails. Then stop on the way back for refreshments and very good food, especially fresh fish.
