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.

Stopped here for lunch today. The restaurant is located in a strip mall on the moana (ocean) side of the road as you drive through Hanalei. Located on the second floor, I did not notice an elevator, so climbing a flight of stairs needs to be considered. We were seated next to one of the open windows which was great!... More

We have been to Bouchons each time we've been to Kauai, and have come to the realization that it's very good for sushi, but the rest of the menu seems a bit suspect. Each time, we have had sushi, and several of our party have wanted something else. This time it was me and I can say the pork was... More

Had lunch here one day. It's a large restaurant located on the second floor in central Hanalei - tables on the windows overlook the quaint shopping and dining area and the beautiful valley and volcanic mountains behind. Definitely worth getting a table on the windows. Very good Mai Tais and modern Martinis. Had coconut shrimp, California roll, Tuna roll and... More

One of the best views of the mountains and waterfalls. Our go-to place after it rains....to count the waterfalls. Good food, service and beers.

They had a lot of good sushi choices. The regular menu wasn't that inspiring, but was ok. We ate at the bar, one night, and we were not thrilled by the service, but the seafood special and the tuna were really done well, which made up for it. The other night we did a sushi take out, which was absolutely... More

The sushi was good and so was the service. It was just nothing stood out here and also the prices were high for sushi.

Excellent lunch, maitais and servers. Casual, open air with nice island feel. Food is a tasty mix of standard fare and island specialties. I have been coming to Kauai for 20 years and only now discovered that his gem!

We went here twice on our visit. Everyone was friendly and the food is great. I will say, on our second visit, there was only one waiter. He was behind with the orders, which I don't really hold him responsible for, more so the restaurant for under staffing. He did really well. Try the Ahi Pok'e!!

We stopped here after a day of beach hopping up the northshore. It's a great view of the mountains and a waterfalls across the street. They have a cool little spot in the corner for making sushi which we had for an ap. it was good. I had the fish and Chips which were fantastic. My wife had some kind... More
