Possibly the best food and definitely the best value on Kauai

Kauai has some great chefs. Most foodies have heard of Merriman and Jossellin, but I think Ron Miller is doing amazing things with local ingredients, and he isn't punishing you for the privilege! Excellent food with an attentive and friendly staff awaits and you won't go into shock when the bill... read more

My wife and I eat here every trip to Kauai. The Wine and Food Pairing on the tasting menu is absolutely amazing. It never ceases to amaze us that they can change up the menu and the food is always beyond great but the best part are the wines. I don't know how they do it but the wines go... More

Ordered calamari here in the Chicago area and in locales all over the continental US, but never knew it could taste this good. The restaurant was very accommodating when we ran late for our reservation, though it was fully booked. Very good food, ambiance, except for one extremely rude, loud patron that they could do nothing about. Once she left,... More

My friend and I visited this restaurant twice last week and since the first visit rated at least a 4, but the second one barely rated a 2, I have given this an overall rating of 3. The entire reason for the 2 was the result of the staff that served us that evening. On Sunday night, our first visit... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants on Kauai. The fish is always very fresh. They change up the preparations periodically so there's always something new to try. We especially love their curry sauces when they have them. We also enjoy the walleys salad, one of a couple of dinner salad choices. It is not cheap however. It's the only... More

I loved everything about the Hukilau Lanai, from the atmosphere to the food. We made reservations to celebrate my parents' 35th wedding anniversary here, 5 adults and 1 child (3.5 years old). The service was wonderful, beyond my expectations. We had the wonton appetizer, and it was delicious. I had the HukiLau Mixed Grill as my entree and again, my... More

We like eating in the lounge for an early dinner. Get there before music starts as it is first come first serve.

This restaurant was on-site at our resort...Kauai Coast Resort at the Beachboy. We chose this place on our last night in Kauai for its recommendation and proximity. My daughters and I enjoyed 3 of the different seafood entrees offered and not one of us was disappointed. My Mahi Mahi was outstanding. The only caveat is that one should expect the... More

Always a great value too Considering the quality of the food. This year was the first year we couldn't just walk in and had to make reservations. Our little... More

The ambiance is great with the ocean being right out the window. Our server was very well versed in the different breweries on the island and which beers to try depending on certain preferences. My filet minon was the best I have ever eaten. Very well done. The desserts were fantastic as well!
