Best food in Poipu

The restaurant is expensive, the decor nothing special, somewhat boring but the food is delicious. We have ordered seared tuna and butterfish as main courses - both were made to perfection. Great wine list. It was the best food we had in Poipu , we were very happy with our choice and we are spoiled... read more

The restaurant is expensive, the decor nothing special, somewhat boring but the food is delicious. We have ordered seared tuna and butterfish as main courses - both were made to perfection. Great wine list. It was the best food we had in Poipu , we were very happy with our choice and we are spoiled by NY restaurants.

The service, food , and atmosphere are always first class at Roy's. You are never rushed, and the servers are very knowledgeable about the daily menu. Roy's is expensive, but fabulous.

We ate at Roy's three years ago and the food was so good that I saved the menu in case we returned to Kauai. We were not disappointed when we returned this month. The food is excellent and the staff works hard to keep your glasses full and the courses coming. After two trips to Kauai, we rate this the... More

Great Service, interesting menu, very pricey, but good food. Most in our group got the butterfish and loved it! The deserts were special . . . .

We ate here last week while vacationing in Poipu, and even though our meal was expensive, we really did enjoy the quality and preparation of our dishes, and the service was excellent, so feel like it was money well spent. Our server was friendly, helpful and attentive - she helped us with a family allergy issue, no problem at all.... More

We had a very nice Valentine's Day dinner. One person had the fixed menu and that was special but for $85.00. I didn't have the fixed menu item because I can't imagine paying for and eating pork bellies, which was one of the main courses. The rest of us ordered from the menu. Our meals were very good. The biggest... More

What a special place!! Everyone was so friendly and they greeted us with menus with our name congratulating us on our honeymoon. How sweet is that!!! The dinner was great and I enjoyed every bite! I strongly recommend.

The prices were relatively on the high end , but I should add that the servings, the presentation, the taste and the attention by our server, was all commensurate to the price we paid. It is by no means a black and white affair as everybody was dressed according the casual Hawaiian attire. But despite the easy going atmosphere, there... More

The dessert was to die for! And that was after one of the best meals we've had on the island so far!

Roy's is a wonderful place for great food! The entire staff is determined to provide exceptional care, even for those of us with allergies. I LOVE the Chocolate Lava dessert. While vacationing this is the place we go multiple times.
