Me and my family had a great lunch there today. You can't beat the atmosphere and the view. Our server, Tyler, was friendly and attentive. Great wraps and fish and chips. Would definitely visit again! Mahalo!

This is a good place with nice seating over looking the central area of Hanalei. The service was great and the food was good 'pub' grub. Good value

Disclaimer...I have only been here for lunch because, on the day I visited, it was very hot, very humid and the line a Bubba's was way too long! Good fish tacos and the beer was cold! 'nuff said? No? I didn't think so OK, this place is a nice break from the Hanalei sun. Shady and cool(er), what with the... More

Very nice dinner tonight at Bouchons. I had the Tsunami roll and my husband had the ribs and fish. We both enjoyed our meals. The atmosphere was lovely and we has a nice seat overlooking Hanalei. Our server was Estrella and she was great. Thank goodness she has a sense of humor.

Had to have fish and chips instead. Hubby's burger didn't even come with fries. Disappointing, especially since I wanted sushi.

Hi, Shyerich -- our fresh fish ships in at 2pm each day, so in order to give our sushi chef the proper time to prep, our sushi bar doesn't open until 5pm. I wish you could have caught us then! Additionally, we do have fries on the menu as a side option. Sorry you missed it! Sincerely, Edward Sclafani, Proprietor More

When we are in Princeville, Kauai we always go to Ching Young's Village and stop by at Bouchon's for happy hour. They have one of the best mai tais in the North Shore. If you seat at the window, you will have a great view of the mountain and a waterfall. Their food is a bit pricey but the mai... More

Unless you are just going for drinks, don't bother with this place. Against my wife and our guidebook's advice our group booked dinner reservations for 9 people. My wife and I ordered the calamari with looked like cheese sticks when they arrived and was under cooked. They were obviously frozen as is probably 70 percent of the menu based on... More

Bouchons has a terrific location, right in the heart of Hanalei and overlooking town. A great open air dining room and nice furnishings make it a good place to spend a lunch break. Only complaint is the expense. All of Kauai is pricey but this seemed just a bit above the rest. We had the calamari which was cooked perfectly... More
