Spent a week in Poipu and went there twice for dinner. While the food was fantastic the service was absolutely outstanding. When you're on vacation you should be able to laugh and enjoy yourself and that was made easy by the wonderful staff at Roy's. From the moment we arrived to the time we left we were treated like royalty.... More

The staff was very good. Multiple people working to be sure we are satisfied. I had seafood stew with Asian flavor. I wish they don't put so much chili pepper on everything, but I guess it must be Hawaiian to add a little spice in each dish.

The food at Roy's is worth coming for. The menu at Roy's is well-rounded and everything we ordered was very tasty. Preparation was excellent. Service during the meal was also excellent. The only complaint we had is that we arrived a little early for our 715 reservation; despite the restaurant being half empty we were told that they were "seating... More

We've been going to Roy's for years and at one time it was our favourite Kauai restaurant. I did a review in January where we expressed disappointment about price, quality and value. But I said we weren't going to give up. We tried it again tonight but things got off to a bad start with the edamame beans which were... More

The food was very good. The mixed grill entree was excellant. Our waiter was terrible. We ordered a chocolate souffle and pineapple desserts early because they take 20 minutes. Just before the desserts were supposed to come out the waiter asked us if we wanted a second pineapple dessert since there were small and we said yes. More wait. Finally,... More

We celebrated our anniversary and birthday at Roy's and were pleased beyond words. The food and the service were exceptional. A wonderful place that is worth a repeat visit.

Very good service, food, and ambiance. I had the best seared Ahi I ever had. The sauce was excellent and I asked for the recipe, nope they would give it. Roy's s a chain, but you feel like it is not.

Have eaten at Roy's for many years. Beginning in Maui 15 -20 years when I raved about it and praises continued at Spanish Bay, however have become increasingly disenchanted with last experience in Palm Desert and now in Kauai. I had a gastric upset all night and next morning which I blamed on the abalone Rockefeller . My wife had... More

We've eaten at the one in Kauai and San Diego and the Butterfish is incredible. Tripadvisor asked "Is this one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant?" A resounding yes. It's a little spendy but it is SO good. I tried to replicate the butterfish at home and it was okay. Go to Roy's.
