“Good Kilauea Greens [and fish]”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We have always appreciated the delicious organic vegetables grown in Kilauea. In fact, they're one of the great pleasures of eating on the Garden Isle.

The area around Common Ground is where much of these are grown and this is the location of this great little patio restaurant. Their salads are superb and their fish fresh caught and cooked perfectly. When we were there in late February, they featured mahi mahi and octopus. Very good.

Sitting is pretty much al fresco with a patio cover which on Kauai's north shore, is really nice.

The restaurant is reached by a country road on the mountain side of Kuhio Highway just south of the turnoff leading to the Kilauea Lighthouse [worth a visit or revisit].

“Worth the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Yes, it's pricey but it's so good! Everything is fresh. They always have some interesting choices and the specials are always creative. Now they have a market place with all those "natural" goodies that are way overpriced.

“luxury lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Sustainable gardens furnish excellent greens to the table in a quiet, open, tropical setting. More restaurants and gardens like this would bring better meals and sustainable growing.

“Creative quality cuisine with fair pricing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Near Princeville on north shore of Kauai. Dined twice last week and enjoyed interesting, fresh, wholesome cuisine. Not cheap but what is on these islands. Cousin living there turned us on to this nice hidden spot. Bravo!
