We were so excited to see a restaurant menu with a variety of salads. I had a large specialty salad (can't remember the name of it) with grilled fish on top! YUM!!! My friend had the caesar salad with grilled fish. YUM!! The burgers looked really good too. I recommend this place and the prices were reasonable.

We have been to this small and informal, unpretentious restaurant and bar in the old school building in the center of Hanalei numerous times, and it never disappoints. This time we went early to avoid having to wait for a table and got seated immediately. Our server was friendly, charming, efficient, and personable without being overbearing. The bartender knows how... More

Located in the old schoolhouse complex with good lunch sandwiches, nice bar, pleasant staff. Dinner is standard fare-all OK. The bar has some what of a local vibe-with live music some evenings.

My husband had the ginger chicken and it was very good. I had the fish and chips and they gave me 4 fish sticks....fresh mahi maui and it was ok. My dinner was as much as his $19.95 and should not have been more than $9.95. The fries were not fresh....probably frozen and it was overall just so so. I... More

We stayed in Hanalei for about six days and we ate here five of them. The food and service was outstanding. My favorite was the coconut shrimp with the spicy/sweet sauce it comes mmmm so tasty! Other than the shrimp, they had great cocktails and served local Hawaiian beers. I can't wait to visit this place next time i'm in... More

I'm been spending my summers in Hanalei since 2001. The Hanalei Gourmet is the only restaurant to provide consistently good food. It's got a great low key vibe and the service is friendly and welcoming. I've watched several of the restaurants here change or close, there are only a handful of original spots left and this is the best of... More

I had been weary of trying ahi due to the deep red color and assumed it was a very strong flavor. Something about this place made me go for it and give it a try. I got the ahi n chips. WOW. I was so wrong about ahi and it was flaky and fresh. I believe I got ahi 3-4... More

No A/C here and the air was still but that did not detract from the good food and cold beer on tap. Two of us had salads that were crisp and refreshing. The special fresh fish with grilled veggies and rice were a balanced meal after a day of hiking and swimming. VT fans will find a warm welcome.
