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

Visited Verde restaurant in Kapaa based on other reviews at TripAdvisor. I must admit that we have enjoyed the best Mexican food at this restaurant during our visit to Kauai island. They have great and fresh seafood selection on menu. We tried Mahi Mahi burritos and they were amazing. They have a good selection of fruit juices too.

Visited Verde for early dinner on 7/1/14 based on other reviews. We were very glad we did! This is definitely a local hangout and for good reason. The food is fantastic! We both ordered fish tacos. Because we couldn't decide on which fish tacos, we were told we could order one of each. I had the shrimp, mahi mahi and... More
