Excellent food with loud groups and freezing AC

This restaurant is on a golf course and theres no sign leading to it.. so we had to call them from the car park to confirm if we are at the right place. The location isnt so great (no view unless you go for lunch.. or you are a golf fan). The food was excellent. Service was ok. The place... read more

It was excellent when it was open....but the restaurant closed in late April. Roy's opened another restaurant just down the street called Eating House 1849.

A wonderful tasty romantic dinner in a great setting....that was the plan . But it didn't happen. After being seated we waited a bit to order drinks to start the dinner. Well a few minutes later our waiter comes back and asks if we would like to order dinner while we are waiting for the drinks. Wait a bit hmmm... More

I missed eating at Roy's in the Poipu Shopping Center, but had dinner at their new "Eating Place 1849". I had to sit at the bar because of all the reservations, but the place never filled the whole time I was eating. Huh? The food was good, but not worth the price. The word is they have gone downhill since... More

Stopped for lunch with my sisters and a friend. They had a bus stop for lunch and were totally slammed. The waitress did what she could to get our food to us but we probably should have just left and tried it another time. Food was just so so and our drinks were not worth what we paid for.

The old Roy's has relocated to the Shops at Kukuilua near the rotary in Poipu Beach. I have dined at many of Roy's restaurants throughout the islands and I think this one is the best yet! We had our teenaged daughters with us and they also really enjoyed the meal and upscale atmosphere. Amazing Kitchen!!

A truly spectacular space for an evening drink or dining. You will NOT be alone - make a reservation, come early, smile. Wait staff is very friendly, dress is upscale/fine-dining.

Food is really good, they've moved their restaurant and changed name to 1849. A bit expensive, good value for the children's menu

We didn't and were told a 2-1/2 hour wait SO we hung out at the bar and ate there. Good bartender and service overall.
