Honestly, we found Hanalei Goumet was about average and probably won't be going back. Service was ok. Food was ok. I had the fish n chips, which was supposedly swordfish but I have my doubts. My wife had the fish sandwich, my son a reuben sandwich, and my daughter a burger. It was all ok. No drinks, just water. $60.... More

Tuna salad, Rueben sandwich and beer to total $35 is expensive in my book. Food OK, average service, plain surroundings. I don't know where they think any of this is gourmet except to lure tourists in.

Had a very good dinner here. Friends took us here last year & we enjoyed it a lot. This year, we went back on our own. We shared the mussels appetizer & it was really good -- 7 mussels, topped with tomatoes, onion & herbs in a great broth & served with warm bread for $9.50. The fresh fish was... More

The gorgonzola burger is one of the best burgers I've had in a while! I may have to drive across the island again to have another.

We have been to Hanalei several times and never visited Hanalei Gourmet. Finally, discovered this wonderful place. Plenty to choose from on their menu. Great drinks. The best bartenders.

This place is not pretentious at all but had some excellent and unusual vegetarian choices which provided an unexpected eating highlight for us. Very good value for this part of the world too

We ate at the Hanalei Gourmet last week and were very disappointed in the meal. We tried the fish and chips and they were not good at all. The fries were cold and stale and the cold slaw was not edible. I had the chicken sandwich and it was ok but again the fries were cold and stale, The staff... More

The Hanalei Gourmet was a mixed experience for us. It was a cool little place in downtown Hanalei with nice outdoor seating. No alcohol is allowed on the porch though. My boyfriend and I both ordered the lemonade which was advertised as being “freshly squeezed” , but was basically just club soda with a lemon in it. In other words... More

The plate special was 2 tacos with rice and beans for $12.95. when we went back we decide to forgo the rice and beans and I ordered 4 tacos believing the special was 2 tacos for $6 bucks since the sign...
