not sure what all the hype is about, its decent mexican food that is over priced even for kauai. The fish in the tacos was some of the worst Ive had on the island(granted that still means its pretty decent there is great fish on this island) and everything was extremely salty even for mexican food. The service was terrible,... More

We went to Verde after it was recommended by fellow hotel guests. The wait was a little long because it's a small restaurant but it really was very tasty food. We had the fish tacos and they were amazing. The sauce was spicy and yummy and even our kids ate everything.

Yummiest Mexican food! Our first meal when we landed and man were we ever so pleased! Being from Texas we were starved for some good ole Mexican food, the food was plentiful and delicious, the staff were very friendly and attentive. We left full and happy with our first meal on the island :) Two thumbs up for Verdes!!

Found this on Yelp when we were looking for Mexican driving back from North to South shore. Family of four, two adults two teens, were all very happy with what we got. I got both a shrimp taco and a fish taco. Liked them both, but for my taste enjoyed the fish more. My picky eater son got the pork... More

The ahi tacos and the garlic shrimp tacos were A plus! Service matched the food. Casual atmosphere but top notch.

I read about this place on Yelp, and it was our first stop for food and drink after 13 hours of flying. It did not disappoint! A lot of locals were eating there. It is a small eatery with tables close together; they were very busy, but it was worth the short wait. The food was flavorful and the portions... More

We arrived in Kauai very late afternoon starving. We decided on Mexican and with the thanks of tripadvisor, we chose Verde. It was excellent. Very quaint, staff was amazing, food was incredible. We have six in our party and everyone left raving about their meal. Very affordable and the portions are huge.

It's hard to stand out as a great Mexican in Kauai as there are plenty of restaurants and food trucks. This place manages to do just that. Small intimate place with a handful of tables. Excellent customer service and delicious food.

I don't get it, excellent reviews on trip advisor & several guide books, but our food was below average. I'm not sure what kind of sauce is used in New Mexico, but I only received this brown sauce that resembled gravy and it was awful! We had the stacked enchilada with pork, would have been ok without the nasty brown... More
