We had our two children, 4/7, with us for dinner. Our server, Doug, was fantastic, he really went out of his way to discuss the various dishes we had questions about. He was great with the kids and very attentive. We each enjoyed our meals very much, I had a meal with fish, lobster tail and shrimp cake with purple... More

We had dinner at Tidepool the first night we arrived at Hyatt. The location and the design of the restaurant makes every table location desirable. The food was fresh (we all ordered different kind of seafood) and the service was friendly. I will definitely try this place every time I visit Poipu. Make sure to make reservation.

Totally uninspiring. Crab cakes were not particularly strong, the fish was not flavorful and the whole meal was overpriced and forgettable. Service was nice but just capable.

Service was good and the food quality was outstanding. Prices are high on Kauai...that is a given but price per portion size here was a bit steep even for the island. The Grand Hyatt is a beautiful resort...the grounds are beautiful.

While the islands are not really known for their cuisine. Tidepools delighted our senses and we enjoyed sitting by a waterfall watching the Koi while enjoying a wonderful meal.

This was one meal I was looking forward to over our trip and it was the most disappointing. My husband ordered something with wasabi and could hardly taste it in the dish. I ordered a fish dish with Macadamia nuts in the title and it turned out it was just baked in a bland panko and the nuts were pureed... More

I had such a lovely dinner here with my family during our vacation. We were celebrating my mom's birthday and my parents' wedding anniversary so we were really looking for an extra special restaurant that night. Tidepools certainly fit the bill. The restaurant itself is beautiful, situated within the Hyatt on Poipu Beach next to a lagoon filled with koi,... More

Some people may swoon over the Grand Hyatt, but I had a different reaction. The grounds would be beautiful anywhere else, but in Kauai where nature is amazing, I was struck by an artificial feel - from the man-made lagoons to the koi ponds around the restaurant - I felt like I was in an artificial paradise. Give me the... More
