Our relaxed and spacious second story, open-air restaurant has a great ambiance and best picture taking views of Hanalei's mountains and waterfalls. Visitors and locals come time and time again for Bouchon's Pacific-American menu that's filled with a great selection of fresh homemade pupus, local caught seafood, teriyaki chicken, ribs and a premier sushi bar second to none. The famous Copper Bar serves up everything from soft drinks to Saki, including our very popular Mai-Tai. Located in the heart of Hanalei, we have the perfect gathering place to enjoy with family and friends.

Bouchons is ideally located on the second floor overlooking Hanalei Village's shopping area. Open air dining makes for a pleasant evening. Service was great and the prices reasonable. The food however was mediocre. We had chicken which tasted like it had been prepared a week earlier and reheated more than once. There weren't many diners on the evening we were... More

I'm really glad you enjoyed the views and dessert, but wish you could have said the same about your meal. I can assure you that everything on the menu is prepared fresh to order, so I'm stumped by your description of the chicken. I'll be sure to look into it, and I'm confident you'll be much happier with everything next... More

Enjoyed the out-in-the-open feeling even though we weren't seated at a window table looking down at the street below. The mountains are gorgeous from anywhere, but especially nice from there. We had their burgers - and a Mai Tai for me - unremarkable, but good. I think their sushi is a big deal from what I saw around us. Would... More

Can only comment on the sushi and the service, as we didn't order off the other parts of the menu. Sushi was decent. Nothing special. Sticky rice needs help. Miso was a bit too salty, but nice flavor. But I didn't have high expectations, as the sushi chef was a young white guy who was swearing every other word. (more... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your meal and the service, but I'm sorry if the actions of any of our staff members made you feel uncomfortable. That's never something that we want, so I'll be sure to relay your comments to the team. That was not the boss's son, but we do know who you're referring to and will handle the... More

We have lived on Kauai for a number of years, and have tried Bouchons several times. Went there tonight for a Day-late Valentine's dinner. The special was Cajun Mahi-Mahi with vegetables and potatoes or rice. I had the special, my wife had shrimp scampi. Both were awesome. The scampi was moist, not too oily, with just the right amount of... More

Bouchons in Hanalei is well worth the trip. The Ono/Mango wraps and sushi were absolutely excellent. This small quaint second floor restaurant has some of the best food if have eaten in Hawaii. Smiling friendly staff make you feel welcome , and the views from the open windows remind you of the beauty of the area with every bite.!!

The restaurant overlooks the main road through Hanalei. We sat at a window table and watched the action below. Good sandwiches and fish. Fun place to enjoy a quiet lunch.

Wonderful shushi and the regular menu is great as well. Love to sit at the rail overlooking Hanalei Town. We try to get here at least twice when we visit Kauai. Reservations are best if there is a group.

Five of us went here for dinner, the menu looked interesting. It was busy but not packed, we were seated pretty fast. Took a while for the waiter to come by, we ordered drinks and he disappeared for awhile finally came back with drinks, ordered. We got some really good fish and ribs, the ribs were cooked well, falling off... More
