I couldn't believe what a great meal we had at Trees. Outside is alittle tired, inside alittle tired...but the ribs and shrimp can't be beat!

We came to Trees without any expectations but intrigued by the Caribbean-inspired menu. My partner had the jerk chicken (no bones in answer to another review's complaint) and I had the ribs. Both were nicely spiced and generous portions. My partner had the key lime creme brûlée and I had the beignets... Again both excellent. With live music (no cover)... More

Good place to hang out. We came on a Wednesday so it wasn't too crowded. We learned that Monday nights are the busiest.

The food is excellent and well varied. We ate there most every night except the Hukilau next door - ate there one night each time there - every year in late Jan-Feb, but Trees is fantastic. Ate all over Kapaa and up toward the north and south, but always go back to Trees. Good food, reasonable drinks and food, good... More

You walk in and it seems like its a "dive" bar. But don't walk out! There was always a live band playing (not too loud). Drink specials from 5 to 7.. And the food is terrific. Especially the sliders, the monapouia, the nachos, the Cajun fries, and the house salad with lillicoi vinegrette. Not expensive . comfortable seats. Service was... More

Best martinis in Kauai. We look forward to Trees just as we look forward to the beach on our annual visit. The beignets are also an absolute must!

We were pleasantly surprised here - the food was quite good, served with an arty presentation, and not expensive. Really good gumbo!

Found this restaurant on our visit to Kauai last year. They serve great martinis and the night we were there they had live music. The food is good and very reasonable.

I came here for a night out with my family when we were on vacation and it was a lovely night. We ordered a bunch of different dishes and all shared so I tried many things and they were all delicious! My favorites were the bacon wrapped shrimp and the steamed buns stuffed with chicken and mushrooms, but seriously all... More
