Found this place on Kauai revealed. First off, it's expensive. No if's and's or Seymour butts. Like $18 for a soup or salad. $15 specialty drinks. But those are some really tasty drinks and sides. My wife had the martini flight and loved it. I'm a margarita on the rocks with salt on the glass guy and that was some... More

Amazing food and wonderful, attentive service. Beautiful surroundings. Can't be beat! Sushi available Tuesday through Saturday at the bar. Drinks are spendy but generous! Wait staff is top notch.

We dined here on the spur of the moment not really knowing anything about it and are starting to feel this might be the best fine dining option in Poipu. Wonderful service, delicious entrees, good cocktails. If only they were outside with a view. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed everything we had at Red Salt. The Macadamia Nut Pancakes at breakfast, wow. And the Creme Burlee at dinner is sensational, too.

Staff were friendly, food was delicious, and presentation excellent. Only drawback was the location was a view of hotel courtyard ( restaurant is on/near the beach)

Hard to find, sandwiched between the Marriott and the Plantation Gardens on the beach, it is well worth a little hunting. From the cocktails to the deserts, it was exceptionally well done with service and food of the highest level. We had the Kua Onion Soup which was exceptional. Starting with the presentation which was a white bowl with a... More

We had a party of eight and were seated in a private area. Our wait staff was attentive and helpful in describing the dishes. This was a great meal for foodies and we very much enjoyed it. Our table all ordered different dishes and we were not disappointed. Several selections for those who do not eat fish (why?). The salads... More

The Koa Kea resort have the best restaurant on the island. Hands down. Service is top notch and very personal. Food is fresh and unique with a style I have not seen. Very pricey but worth very penny.
