Description: Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar is located in a beautifully restored plantation manor on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Dating back to the 1930's, the estate once served as the plantation manager's home for Hawaii's first sugar plantation, the Koloa plantation. Later, the estate was acquired by the Moir Family who built the world famous gardens that surround the restaurant. Our menu reflects the heritage of old plantation Hawaii, which celebrates the abundance and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Our fresh fish is caught daily by local fishermen in waters off Kauai. We use organically grown vegetables and herbs picked fresh on nearby farms and from our own gardens. Guests may choose to dine on our lanai overlooking tranquil gardens, lily ponds and tropical foliage or in our exquisitely refurbished dining room which features gorgeous Brazilian cherry wood floors, woven bamboo tables and plantation ceiling fans.

Enjoyed some nice fish and salads on the veranda of this restaurant. The setting was great, the service was nice also. Highly recommended.

“Food review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The garden is beautiful but the food is not very tasty. They cook in a pacific rim style without much flavor

“beautiful setting, solid food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We always enjoy Plantation garden. The food is the standard pacific rim fusion, but originally prepared and sitting on the Lanai is wonderful. The setting is great with the most amazing orchid and cactus gardens nearby. Better to view these during the day (I wish they would reopen for lunch, but have not done so for about 7 years). Good solid food, pleasant, competent servers. Just a very nice Pacific rim style evening.

“One of the few places we like to eat in Kauai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Had family Christmas dinner here this year and we were not disappointed. excellent bar and very good fish and other entrees. They have preserved to a large degree the simpler atmosphere of the pre-Ewa restaurant.
