Keoki's was one of our favorite places when we visited a few years ago but we were pretty disappointed this time around. Burgers were very bland (pork slider was good though) Fish entree was also bland with not much flavor. On the positive - the Nachos were yummy. If I went back I would get nachos and hula pie .....

We had a good after beach happy hour here at the bar. The beer selection has been the most compelling and varied we've seen so far. The happen hour food options had a little something for all tastes. We had hummus and fish tacos. Overall the place gets very busy but the staff had no trouble keeping up. Everyone seemed... More

This restaurant is great - great atmosphere, beautiful setting amongst the flowers, trees and water features. Food was excellent and great service. They have a "Sunset Menu" and if you book a table before 6pm you get a 3 course meal for $25 (Kauai is expensive so this is great value!!). The selection is smaller (and maybe the portions??) but...

I enjoyed the environment, our delightful waitress, and perfectly grilled fish served with fresh green beans and rice. Recommended.

Friends had recommended the bar for a meal because prices were lower than in the main restaurant. We were impressed with the bar's great use of wood in the decor and the noise level was tolerable. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the food and the prices were indeed reasonable for where we were. We'll go back on... More

After our whale watching captain told us about this place, we couldn't resist. We went for happy hour and had tacos, sliders, nachos, ribs and drinks. We were not disappointed! The cocktails were delicious and the food was fantastic! Their setup is great with a covered outdoor dining area. The best part? My husband and friend's husband had the same... More

One of our very favorite restaurants on Kauai... Keoki's always reminds our family of Gilligan's Island. The food is very good, the service pleasant, and the outdoor setting is relaxed and comfortable...

We had a nice lunch. Lovely tropical setting. A good spot for cocktails or meals. It's a large restaurant and all the tables look out on the tropical setting. It's close to the road so you get some street noise.

We always plan a trip down to Poipu to lunch at Keok's Paradise. The pulled pork sandwich with special slaw is the best. It has a beautiful setting to go with great service.
