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!

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.

Now called "Eating House 1849" by Roy Yamaguchi. Excellent Kalamari, seafood paella and Reuben sandwich. Spectacular setting overlooking poipu beach in the background. Superb service. Highly recommended.

Menu is a hodge lodge of a little of this and a little of that with no coherence. Prices are relatively high but the food is definitely not worth it.

It is a must visit place whenever we go to Poipu. Great food and service too! My son HATES fish, but he ate it there and LOVE it!

Roy's has always been one of our faves. We noticed that they recently moved to a new location ( atmosphere is much better than their old spot.). Menu has changed and is smaller, but Roy is onto something here. My Paella was superb & my wife's wild boar/local beef burger was probably the burger I've ever had. The sweet fish... More

My husband and I returned to Roy's Po'ipu for our 5 year anniversary and we're once again pleased. I had the Metairie with fried tofu and it was out of this world! My husband had the Opa and pasta, also good. You cannot go to Roy's and a pass up the Chocolate Soufflé. Get it! You will not regret it!... More

Chef Roy's new restaurant, Eating House, is just incredible. The décor immediately makes you feel as though you're sitting in a beautiful plantation in gorgeous Hawaii. Make sure to go early & grab a drink at the bar. The cocktails are delicious! We ended up eating two nights in a row at this restaurant. The food was incredible - especially... More
