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.

Not bad at all but nothing compared to other restaurants

We had an acceptable meal in this crowded place. Even without a reservation we were seated promptly. Service was pretty good. The food was ok. I had a fried fish and ribs combo on a bed of fries which was not bad. I started with a small caesar salad, which was ok. My wife had miso soup, salty and... read more

This overlooked restaurant, in the top of the Chinese looking/named little shopping center in the middle of Hanalei, has a sushi bar, and serves fish and chips, grilled items, and has a good children menu as well, plus a full bar. We ate there three times, and the service was sometimes good, sometimes "eh..." The food was always pretty good.... More

I had the fish and chips and was disappointed in my last two attempts at different places. These fish and chips were near perfect with very good fries. Light breading that wasn't too greasy with three decent sized pieces of fish. I would highly recommend it. I also had the clam chowder which was different, very thick, but had a... More

We were 4 adults who came to dinner at Bouchons. We all ordered the fish and chips and were all very pleased with the fish, etc. Good price for Hanalei. Our server was most attentive. We will be back to try some other offerings. A very good experience especially if you can get a seat looking out the open air... More

If you are looking for poor service. ( waiting to be seated when there are plenty of empty tables) The menu read ok, however disappointed completely. We ordered a sample platter, came out warm if that; everything was overcooked and dry and seemed like it had been sitting there all day and had been reheated, chips especially bad!!!! Would never...

Careful when ordering. We ordered a burger, a couple of drinks and fries during happy hour and were charged some weird dinner price 3x value. We were warned by local friends not to eat here and wished we had listened. Sure sign of horrible place is having to reorder a side of fries. Bad sushi rolls for island standards also.... More

We had a perfectly acceptable meal for four at Bouchon's when our first choice for a dinner restaurant proved unavailable. The entrees varied in quality. The house dish, seafood Hanalei (a combination of shrimp, scallops and fish) proved to be rather on the bland side, while the macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi offered rich flavor. Nothing was particularly exceptional in... More

Looking for a great place for dinner in Hanalei this hit the spot for us. Very friendly waitstaff and great menu choices. Kids 12 & 10 both found things on the menu they actually liked. Seafood Alfredo was awesome! So was smothered chicken & Ribs and teriyaki chicken. We argued over whose meal was best. Mom and Dad also enjoyed... More
