Just an awesome experience and just about anyone can make it to the Pools. Great hike through the rain forest and was able to see beautiful flowers and vegetation along the hike.

Better than average dinner. Island ribs are good. Prime rib too. Catch of the day so so. Friendly service. Bit on the high side for price. But go here rather than Dondero's

Are you honeymooners or on a romantic trip with your significant other? You should go here! The atmosphere is amazing and romantic, and the food is worth every penny. (and, believe me, you will spend A LOT of pennies!) They light the tiki torches and you can see the beach from your table; it is just stunning! Try to make... More

We came here on our last night in Kauai... The food was great. Among us we had the poke duo, the mango salad, filet & the market fish... All of the food was tasty! My daughter had the chocolate smoothie & I had a coconut one... We both appreciated that they felt more like shakes than smoothies. Our server Les... More

The setting at Tidepools is beautiful. Add to that great service and great food and you have a real hit. It was our last night at the Hyatt and we ate at Tidepools before leaving for the airport. Our server did a great job explaining how each entree was prepared in great detail, making each dish sound better than the... More

The property is beautiful, but be prepared to get wet if you sit by the water. The food was average and not worth the high prices.

Best dinner we've had so far here in kauai and maui. Great setting around the koi pond. The food and service were amazing! We had the duo Hamachi and poke appetizer, which was delicious. I had the snapper and my wife had the Hawaiian catch of the day. I would recommend both dishes. Topped dinner off with the lava cake.... More

A great meal, a beautiful location in an equally beautiful resort. Food, drinks, service, LOCATION! We watched a beautiful sunset from our dinner table. Highly recommend!

We had a great celebration with Pupus and cocktails for 12 to surprise my husband early for his birthday. The staff went out of their way to give us a great table and excellent service. The food was excellent. We had eaten there several years ago and the food is still outstanding, (as are the drinks) Note that the cost... More

We had dinner here on our first night at the hotel. The food was excellent. I had scallops, the lavender fillet of beef and the molton lava cake. My husband had the hawaiian snpper. All of it was cooked wonderfully and presented beautifully. The service was also superb. I would definitely eat here again. It wasn't too expensive but not... More
