This is my favorite Roy's! The food is always great and the service was wonderful. We were surprised to open the menu to see that they had created a special insert that said congratulations and our name and Happy Anniversary. We had the seared ahi and of course the chocolate souffle (don't miss this) and other amazing fish. When in... More

Roy's Poipu offers standard Roy's menu selections. Preparations are as expected, but not really tuned to the atmosphere of Poipu Beach on Kauai. We had hoped for some dishes that represent this beautiful island. The dining room was barren on a Monday evening. Service was professional. There is no decor nor warmth to the large dining area. It feels like... More

We enjoy eating at Roy's. It was my wife and my Anniversary While on the Island. We go to a Roy's in each town we visit. The only thing about this one is No Sushi. I like Sushi. We enjoyed the out doors setting.

One of our favorite places in Hawaii. The prices are competitive with inferior restaurants. How many times during our 12 dinners in Kauai did we say to ourselves, "We could be eating at Roy's"? Roy's is even better if you're celebrating something. My husband was thrilled with the personalized birthday wish, and so was I. One evening my fish was... More

I've always loved Roy's restaurants and this one is no exception. They do wonderful things with fish here. The ambiance is not great, but the food compensated for it. I'd definitely come back for more.

Why Roy's chain has such a good reputation I don't know. This is the second subpar experience. I returned because I was invited to meet friends there otherwise I would never have returned. Like so many celebrity chains run by absentee chefs, Roy's must be run by electronic commands otherwise Roy himself is solely responsible for the bad menu choices... More

We enjoyed our evening and food here. The apple volcano dessert was one of the best I've eaten. The fish was superb and service is great.

We really enjoyed the seafood at Roy's! The service was very good too, and our waiter even gave us an extra dessert, on the house. All in all, a lovely dinner!

The whitefish was outstanding . Just the correct amount of crust. Service was impeccable. I no more than drank a bit of water and the glass was refilled. Watching the chiefs prepare the food was good. Crabcakes as appetizers were good and then the chocolate raspberry shuffle for dessert. Wow. There was nothing amiss.
