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.

“Seafood at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We had Ono (Wahoo) for dinner on the lanai of the bar. Wonderful meal! Ono is not always available (depends on the daily catch) and is one of our favorites.

“BEST SECRET IN KAUAI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My wife and I come to Kauai every other year for our anniversary. We always celebrate at the Plantation Gardens Restaurant....Not only the atmosphere but the staff and food surpasses the more well known restaurants in Poipu....Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of good restaurants in Poipu, but there is something special about Plantation Gardens. Been going for the last 6 years and never been disappointed. Our server Gym along with the host and the bartender could not have been any more professional. Wonderful feeling entering the restaurant and continues through out the nite.
This is a must restaurant for a true Hawaiian feeling.

Food is good; not amazing but that's on par for the island. Loved the location and grounds and service was nice as well.
