A bit pricey for lunch, but he convenience of staying poolside made that worth it! Fish sandwich was very good!

This burger hut in Nawiliwili just off of Kalapaki Beach is a great stop for a scrumptious burger. Add a side of taro fries and lemonade for a fulfilling lunch.

Great burgers (made with 100% Kauai Island Beef), the Aloha Burger I had while looking out over Kalapaki Bay...creates one of those filed to memory for a lifetime memories. Then for dessert...their Shave Ice Rocks as well.

My husband can't stop talking about the Kalapaki #2 breakfast- he ate one almost every day of our trip! I loved the breakfast sandwiches- try the Taro bread. Friendly staff. The cruise ship staff goes here- so you know it's good. We had a shaved ice on our last day and it was great too.

Our family had 3 great burgers with taro buns ( 50 cents extra but good). Also had a very fresh fish sandwich. . Our service was at lunch time, a line to order but it went fast & we received our order in 10 minutes or less. The shave ice was outstanding, we tried JoJo's, Hee Fat, Ono Shave Ice,... More

This is a hole in the wall type place, very little seating and from the length of the line for the shaved ice, I would say that was pretty popular. We had 2 cheeseburgers with fries which were very good. The service is slow because everything is made to order, so if you're in a rush I wouldn't stop here,... More

My husband and I ate here one day for breakfast to try to save a bit of money on our honeymoon, and because there were rave reviews about the place. Overall we felt the place was quite overrated. The woman taking orders the morning we visited obviously did not want to be there, and did not seem very friendly. My... More
