Coming from Texas we are accustomed to good Mexican food, and this places was a nice surprise! Leonardo's service was awesome!

Maybe I've been spoiled by my hometown Mexican restaurant and was expecting too much. The food was much to bland for me. The chimichanga was filled with stringy pot roast and potatoes. That may have been good if I was looking for pot roast, but.... And I've never heard of roasted potatoes in Chimichangas. At least one half of the... More

We had breakfast here our first day. It was very good. We had the dinner special another night and was not disapointed! Would return.

We came to Mariachi's for Cinco de Mayo. The drinks and food were OK, but the service was terrible. The restaurant was not that busy when we were there and our server seemed to be in a bad mood and upset with us from the beginning. We had to ask several times for our bill, and saw our server chatting... More

I always eat here when I visit Kauai and both food and service have been good in the past. This time the ahi fish tacos I had were bland rather tasteless and didn't come with any sides for $15. Margarita was great however. Service was very slow and waitress took about 20 minutes to deliver our drink order even though... More

Visit Mariachi's on mothers day for dinner. Had there fish tacos. Wonderful. Service was great and fast. Minutes walking from Marriott ( come from the back of hotel ). For those who likes beef tripe, they have it. yum yum!!! Had my share.

This is an unpretentious laid back restaurant that has an indoor dining area and a great patio on the second floor that has a great view of the harbor. We had a wonderful time enjoying our meal and drinks as we watched the goings on in the area below us. We ordered Nachos, which were great and some Cadillac Margaritas... More

Our last dinner in Kauai was at the Mariachi's Mexican Restaurant in Lihue. We were staying at the Kauai Marriott and were able to walk there from the hotel. It's located in the Harbor Mall along with the Feral Pig, and Kalapaki Joe's which we also tried. I had the Beff Fajita and my spouse had the Tostada salad. Both... More

If it wasn't for the view of the ocean and mountains from the deck, I'd have nothing nice to say about this place. Our waiter Junior brought us a shot of Cabo tequila when we ordered a cabo margarita, he then took our food order w/o writing it down so of course forgot an item. Once the very bland food... More
