Short ribs

In Hawaii the Chefs want to be artists and improve on standard recipes and screw them up. Short ribs become pot-roast and when I asked why, I was told People do not like fat. So I asked why even put them on the menu. Just call it a pot roast.

Our first night in Poipu we decided to check out Rum Fire. The Resturant that has been open for a couple of years was quite busy for a rainy Wednesday night. Once we got past the not to friendly hostesses who seemed to be over burdened with the iPad seating system we we seated with an ocean view booth. Our... More

This was a great meal in a great location. The first night we went, the power went out on that side of the island. So we had drinks and then left. But with the great reviews I wanted to go back. The food was GREAT and the views were even better. Definitely go here!

We did not stay at the Sheraton, but walked there one evening for drink at the bar. Beautifully decorated and great drink service. Quiet.

On our recent trip to Kauai we thought we would go to a nice ocean side restaurant for a fancy meal. I have had good experiences in the past with Sheration properties so we tried the RumFire. Everything started out right. We had a few drinks, decided on and ordered our dinner and then...the power went out and stayed out.... More

Great view of the Pacific, decent wine list and friendly service. we shared the shrimp, carmelized onion and pesto flatbread which was well balanced and delicious - too much for two. My wife had the jerk chicken which was seasoned perfectly an I had the plank salmon with a delicate horseradish sauce.

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner here on Wednesday, 14 Jan 2015. We had been enjoying a wonderful day of touring Lihue, Kalaheo and Poipu. On our way to this place at the Sheraton Poipu, we were able to park along the roadway and be thrilled by watching several whales. This restaurant is beautifully decorated and is very appealing....

Bad food, bad service, nice view. Over priced and definitely not worth coming back to. Find another place with an equally good view.

We went here to celebrate a retirement. The table was a lovely window view of the ocean. The mai tai drinks were very good though pricey and the appetizers were amazing (onion soup. flatbreads ) Our surprise came with a sudden power outage and being told by the waitress that though the main meals were out of the question, we...

This is pretty much the only dinner option on site at the Sheraton in Poipu, although there are other options close to the hotel. We stayed four nights at the hotel and ate here every single night. The food was so good that we did not want to try another restaurant and be disappointed. It's located right on the beach,... More
