“good and convenient.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

I like the way the food is served in the large bamboo container that you put on your lap while sitting on your lounge chair by the pool. The service is good. The fish, onion rings, and salad is good.

“Delicious Shaved Ice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had both Jo Jo's Shaved Ice (original Jo Jo and Jo Jo) and Kalapaki Shaved Ice and the one at Kalapaki was much better. Instead of putting the ice cream at the bottom (so that it seems like you're digging for gold when trying to get to the ice cream), he put the ice cream in the middle. He would shave some ice, put the ice cream in, then put some more shaved ice on top of that. Soooo delicious! We love the mix of vanilla ice cream with the different flavors from the toppings for the shaved ice. This was definitely our favorite shaved ice spot on Kauai.

“Fast good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed in an Inn near the Beach Hut, and enjoyed being able to get a quick and delicious meal of fresh fish, meat, chicken, salads, taro fries, fruit smoothies, etc. If you have time, check out the upstairs where you can enjoy your meal with a view of Kalapaki Beach and Nawiliwili Bay.

“Good poolside bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I recommend the quinoa croquettes and the mark west Pinot noir. Service quality depends upon who is working but all staff are friendly.
