We went twice and both times had very attentive servers. The meals were outstanding, although the desserts were just okay. This restaurant sits along the beach and has nice views.

Walked over here since staying at the adjacent Hanalei Colony resort. Wife had the margarita flatbread, I had the seafood paella - both very good. Ukelele player and his two dancing daughters performing (TUE evening).

This was one of the strangest dining experiences we've ever had. We initially ordered an appetizer of hummus and pita and an entrée of paella for two. We were told the kitchen was behind (due to a large group) which was fine. Five minutes later, our entrée shows up (before the appetizer). We were told the server "forgot" the appetizer.... More

The best Luau food on Kauai without question. This is a restaurant that we enjoy on a regular basis who has started a weekly luau on Thursday evenings. It's a small, but very good group of entertainers who accompany the best food offered at any luau on the island. Whether you are a local, or a visitor, you won't be... More

We stopped in here after snorkeling at Ke'e beach and doing the four mile round trip hike to the secluded beach. The happy hour is from 3 to 6 and the drinks are fantastic as is the happy hour bar food. By far the best we have had for a happy hour on the beach after three different trips to... More

After perusing the reviews, we slipped over for lunch and were quite happy with our choice. We loved the paella and the Fresh Tides Wrap with Greek salad as well as the babaganoush. All had a uniquely Lebanese spin, which turn out to be quite enjoyable. Highly recommend for those looking for a wonderful spin on island foods.

We celebrated family important event in The Mediterranean. Liked the service! It's a bit pricey, portions are not big, but you get the feel you are in a good restaurant over there!

We just came from capetown and Frankfurt. Even went to Nobu in capetown This place is real heaven. Sashimi was fresh. Delicious. Drinks fantastic. Fish of the day is the best in the world. Totally fresh. Nicely prepared. Owners care about customers. Loved their Tv and watch sports. And finally the view...Pacific Ocean. Plan to come here every day.

The Mediterranean Gourmet is located on the Kauai, about 45 minutes past Princeville but well worth the drive. It has large open windows to watch the surf and a very friendly staff. Brigitte was our knowledgeable server. Lunch is served 11AM-3PM, Happy hour starts at 4PM. We started off with some cocktails and pupus. The Martinis' are $9.50 and nice... More
