This is a funky place, with some of the best fish tacos (on Thursday nights) ever. The staff are friendly, and a lot of locals hang put here.

Hanalai gourmet was as described in previous reviews. Restaurant had a great atmosphere and the food was good. Service was excellent. I had to leave the restaurant for a few minutes to run to the drugstore and they were kind enough to keep my dinner warm for me. Good, healthy selections for kids.

Luckily, we arrived early for lunch as they get quite busy. We ordered the special sandwich - Italian sausage ( mediocre), but the green salad with green apple, carmelized walnuts & gorgonzola cheese & their homemade mango vinaigrette was outstanding.

The place seemed to be favored by locals, with a live band playing the night we were there. Although the place was louder than I normally prefer, I enjoyed it, for the local flavor and ambiance. My mussels were delicious and they are known for their fish tacos (Tues and Thurs). This was probably the least expensive meal we had... More

I ate here only because a friend wanted to meet here. It was very crowded and loud. The food was only average, nothing special. The hostess ignored me and my friend, and seated two larger parties that had come after we did, instead of seperating a double table, to give us a two-top. Obviously catering to the masses, not the... More

My husband and I are here on a recent trip to HI. The food was great and the service was very good. My husband had the club sandwich and I had fish and chips. Yummy!

We shared 1/2 pound shrimp and the Waioli Salad. Both were very delicious!! We did not have to wait long for a table at 6 p.m. Service was prompt and friendly. Hope to go back again before we leave Princeville.

We ate here for two evening meals, both very good. Our orders included the fish and chips, Caesar salad, Waiolo Salad, MacNut Fried Chicken, and the Grilled GInger Chicken--all tasty, served at the perfect temperatures, garnished, and with nice sides. The salads also come as half-orders, which are generous partners to the entrees. Service was prompt, friendly, and accomodating. So... More

We have eaten at Hanalei Gourmet once a week since arriving on the north shore beginning in January. It has become the highlight of our week. I love the "good ole green salad" with mango vinaigrette dressing that's addictive. It's huge and has more than just lettuce! There are usually red, yellow, and green peppers, red onion, sprouts, tomatoes and... More
