Dinner for 2 at Verde during a recent tour of Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island. Definitely one of the best Mexican meals we had on the islands. The restaurant space is a bit small, unfortunately, and I think it would be very smart on their part to look into expanding. Both myself and my husband ordered 2 tacos each... More

We ate at Verde our first night in Kauai based on travelers reviews. We came towards the end of the night, restaurant was STILL packed, so there was some wait. First off worth mentioning, the STAFF! they were so welcoming and friendly. The food.....this to me feels like "fancier" tacos than what you get at most local taco spots. Funny... More

Large portions and great taste! It's in a strip mall but the inside has a cool feel though a little louder - that's to be expected at this type of restaurant though. $3 margarita Mondays and fresh catch dishes of the day make this a great spot!

Verde is 4 stars by Kauai standards, not mainland standards. If you consider yourself a Mexican food "snob", stay away from here and every Mexican restaurant in the state. If you're like The Wife and I and simply can't go 10 days without eating Mexican, give this place a shot. I basically had a wet burrito with a contemporary presentation... More

A friend on Kauai recommended Verde's to my wife & I and we were extremely impressed and please with their recommendation. Our daughter is excellent cooking authentic Mexican dishes and we have become spoiled / very picky about what constitutes a "great" Mexican dish. Verde's Al Pastore burrito was simply fabulous and the Carne Verdana burrito was delicious. Prices were... More

We tried the ultimate chicken tacos and beef shortrib tacos. This was the perfect amount of food for my husband and I. The chips and salsa were delicious. We loved the mix of flavors on the tacos. Great atmosphere and service.

So bummed we didn't discover this hidden gem until the last night of our vaca! I had an ahi and a Mahi taco (amazing combo of textures and flavors) and my husband had the pork tacos which he also loved! Gluten free options made me happy and the service was fantastic!!!
