Decent food a little pricey

Hanalei is a sleepy town so we have to be careful about getting out of the house before 7pm to eat! We went to Hanalei Gourmet on a whim and it was pretty good. They had live music that was a touch too loud. The beer selection is minimal, but sufficient. Weird that you can't drink a beer if... read more

The Hanalei Gourmet restaurant had very good food. We had to wait over 45 min for a table for 4 1/2. If you had a party of 2, 3, or 4 you were seated within 15 min. We had one child that needed a highchair so we were delayed getting seated until they could find room for us. The restaurant... More

We stopped here for supper on a busy Friday night. Tables were a bit of a wait so we decided to sit at the bar. Bartender was friendly and we had good service. Our fish and chips were some of the best we had ever had! No long wait for food, even though the place was very full. Would definitely... More

We went to the restaurant in the evening and there were 7 of us. It was hard to get any help there to see if there was a hostess that we needed to talk to. The waitress acted like she could care less if we were there, but the food was good.

A long time favorite in Hanalei which says something very positive. The service is outstanding. My companion and I ordered Reuben Sandwiches and Cole Slaw. Neither one was up to anything other than average.

We went here twice for fish burgers so can't comment on other menu items. However, fish burgers (marlin first night and Ono second) were very good. Fries were not so we got side green salads on the second go round which was fine but not sure why $2.00 extra. However, no boggy - were willing to pay for that. Servers... More

We ate dinner at the Hanalei Café twice during our last visit to Kauai. Both times the food was excellent and enjoyable. The first visit the service was not exceptional. The waitress seemed to have other things on her mind. On our second visit the waitress we had was exceptional. We were early for "fish taco" night but she went... More

This us a mixed review but mostly good. Our first time to eat here. Mixed green salad with caramelized walnuts and added chicken was perfect. Came with mango vinaigrette. Yum! Club sandwich was really tasty, although I'd wish there were choices of bread other than white. Chicken salad served with greens and half an avocado was only acceptable. For a... More

Hanalei Gourmet was a highlight of this trip. The food was good, the atmosphere quaint, the drinks were satisfying, but the waitress was amazing. I did not get her name, but if you have been here you know instantly who I am talking about. This lady makes the restaurant more than it is. She is one of the nicest women... More

We loved the relaxed atmosphere, fun service, and talking with locals as we ate dinner here. We loved everything we ordered from the fried artichokes, fish and chips done with Hebi, and the Kauai Pie. Yummy! And don't forget to try the fresh limeade. Delicious!
