“They know how to cook Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We eat Mexican food at restaurants at home and needed something comparable. We went to another restaurant here in the area and were disappointed. When we tried this Verde Restaurant, it was good. The food was cooked well. The portions were good sized. The restaurant is in a strip mall and kind of made us afraid to try...but the visit was rewarded. I did not like my Margarita drink though, but the food was definitely good, and the price reasonable.

“Good vegetarian/vegan food at Verde!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I enjoyed dinner at Verde while visiting Kapaa. My brother and I don't eat meat, dairy, fish, or eggs, and the person working at the counter was happy to tell us what could be made vegan. I had a Verde Verde burrito, which was stuffed with fresh guacamole, nicely cooked green beans and broccoli, golden-brown chunks of potato, and green chile sauce. The $3 margarita on the rocks (Monday special) was a nice deal, the standard sweet&sour mix margarita. Verde is friendly, informal, and I loved the guacamole!

“Good healthy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

A small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant with reasonable prices for Kauai. The ahi tostada was wonderful. Be aware that the fish is nearly raw, so if you want it cooked more, you will have to ask for that.

“Excellent Mexican Food and a Great Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This restaurant is a must visit if you are staying at any of the resorts nearby. It is easy to miss as it is located in a strip mall and is somewhat small but you won't be disappointed by the food. Happy Hour is from 3 pm - 5 pm and I believe it was $4.00 margharitas which were very tasty with the salt rim and all. The food was amazing both in taste and size. All three of us had different meals and we each could not finish and had to bring it back to the resort for the next day.

Highly recommended!
