Excellent, fresh food

We were in Kauai for 10 days and ate at Verde twice. The food is so fresh and delicious! Don't be mislead by the strip mall location.

Ate here tonight because of the great reviews online but here was my experience with my husband: as soon as we walked in we sat down at a table but then were asked to move to the bar because the table was unavailable because of a wait they had that no one informed us of upon walking in the door....

We stopped in for an early (11:00) Saturday lunch on our way to Princeville, and had the place to ourselves. Verde is located in a strip-mall next to a grocery store, so the ambience is a little lacking and the décor is a bit Spartan. However, the food is excellent! We ordered a garlic shrimp burrito and a seared Ahi... More

6 months later my entire family is still talking about the lunch we had at Verde while visiting Kauai! Each of us had a different dish and all were divine. The beef was my personal favorite- their enchilada sauce was so flavorful. My only regret was not trying this spot out sooner while we were there so we could have... More

My wife, two children and I gave Verde a try based on a friend's recommendation and we loved it. My wife and daughter had the Fresh Ahi Tostada and they were both very impressed. I had one of the lunch specials which was a couple of tacos rice and beans for $7 and the tacos were wonderful as well. Food... More

Stopped in for a late dinner after a driving tour of the island. What a pleasant surprise! Service was quick and very informative. Yummy Margs! I had the Stacked chicken enchilada and it was one of the best meals I had in 2 weeks regardless of expense. Will definitely come again.

I went to this restaurant with my parents and my brother, none of us were disappointed! The waitress was adorable and very fast. The food came out fast and delicious! I ordered the ultimate chicken tacos which were absolutely fabulous, I would definitely recommend them! All of us left happy and full!

We ended up visiting Verde twice because our first visit was less than satisfactory. On our first visit we had heard this was the place to go for Mexican food in Kapaa. Walking in it is a very small establishment, with only 14 tables and four of those are outside. Verde is located in a strip mall near the Burger... More

Nice place. I could have a good diner while doing my laundry next door. Locals and visitors seem to like the place. Ahi taco is tasty but not so easy to eat :)

Great Guacamole and Burritos (go with the Mahi Mahi and make it wet with salsa)! Small restaurant but minimal wait. Fun atmosphere.
