Delicious fresh fish

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.

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!

This was our 3rd trip to Kauai but our first time to try this restaurant. It is located in the Kauai Coast Resort in Kapaa. We tried the lobster and goat cheese wontons appetizer, Wally' s Salad with Opah fish plate and Wahoo fish plate. All was very tasty. For dessert we tried the Lilikoi Chiffon Pie. My husband and...

Wow, what an amazing restaurant. We wish we had discovered this restaurant earlier in the trip so we could have dined here more. The prices were very reasonable and the taste of food was absolutely delicious, although this restaurant is more of a fish house, I wanted to take a break from fish and try the meat loaf, and it...

We went to this restaurant twice duing our stay on Kauai. Reservations are definitely necessary since this is a very popular spot and probably the best restaurant in the Kapa'a area. Ask to be seated in the patio area, you look onto the grounds of the resort there. No beach view, but a very pretty setting. Tends to be a... More

I ate there with friends in February. I do not eat wheat or corn and our waitress and the chef were very accommodating in recommending which dishes I could eat. I had the tomato pineapple gazpacho which is one of the best soups I've ever had. It had a small scoop of pineapple sorbet in it which accented the flavors... More
