We came during the winter holiday with our extended family, ranging in ages from 2 through 70+ and in palates from vegetarian to omnivore. This is a course menu restaurant, but other parties had children as well. The restaurant was very accommodating. Everything was delicious and local! We tried intriguing combinations, and everyone tried all the dishes. We were all... More

Overall, I loved this place. The concept is super cool (it's a farm-to-table pop-up restaurant in a tent near the side of the road and has communal seating). All the food we had was EXCELLENT! Of the five dishes, the third was slightly redundant (a salad after having had a salad w/ protein for the second dish), but was still... More

A great chance to meet other travelers while enjoying a delicious five course locally sourced meal. Do bring bug spray and make reservations early. If you are coming from the southern end of the island make sure you feel comfortable driving in the dark.

Do this. A really wonderful night. The food was excellent and well paced. I wish waiters back home in New York explained dishes with the care of our super hard working hosts. If you are really into fine dining or super refined food, check out Bar Acuda or one of the Resorts. If you're interested in learning about food culture... More

Ahhhhh-mazing!! If you are on the northern part of the island, BOOK THIS NOW! They only operate on Tuesday and Wednesday nights so make a reservation. This is farm to table dining under a white tent with communal table seating. For 5 courses, you can't beat the price and it is perfectly portioned. How they are able to time everything... More

This was a beautiful location outside in a tent under soft lighting. It was a predetermined 5 course menu. The chef did a great job! While the courses are different twist on basics, the chef does a great job of perfecting unique flavors that are delicious and not polarizing to a large audience. The service was great and beyond accommodating... More

This is a great place to experience farm to table cuisine in Kauai. It was a great change of pace from the touristy restaurant scene. I thoroughly enjoyed trying some of the local foods in creative preparations. It's maybe not quite on par with what you might get in more sophisticated, foodie cities, but it was still very good. We... More

This was an amazing experience! We sat down at sunset in perfect temps and immediately made new friends. We enjoyed 5 courses of delicious local food as we sipped wine (its a BYO) and chatted and laughed with all the people around us. The portions were somewhat small but we left with the perfect amount of food in our bellies.... More

My friends and our children go to Kauai every summer and this was our second time at Kauai Ono. There is a great communal atmosphere and the food is delicious. It is magical to be eating under the stars. It is the best of what is great about Kauai - really one of a kind. [First timers note - this... More

One of a kind experience, delicious and fresh food that was picked that morning. Lovely to be seated next to strangers that forced you to talk and get to know each other. Beautiful sunset.
