We came here around 4:30PM after doing the Na Pali coast hike, so we were in time to still order off the lunch menu. We both had fish (opah that day) and chips, which were very good, and they kept our beverages topped off which was also good post hike! We sat on the front porch so were unable to... More

We had lunch here twice, and I can´t believe it´s not higher rated. The service was friendly, efficient and attentive and the food was really good at an affordable price. What more can you ask for? Next time we´ll be back for dinner!

We had dinner at the Hanalei Gourmet. The service was good and the food was standard / good. I had the waldorf salad and my husband had the pesto pasta special. We both had the brownie a la mode which was the highlight of the meal. Would recommend if you are looking for good simple food.

After spending a wonderful morning at Ke'e beach snorkeling, swimming, sunbathing and walking the beach we stopped at Hanalei Gourmet for a late lunch. It was packed but we were seated quickly and scoured the menu to see what we wanted to eat. A friend and I shared the Fresh Island Fish Sandwich which was charbroiled Mahi Mahi served with... More

This is one of three dinner restaurants we went to in Hanalei Bay - the others being Tahiti Nui and Postcards. Of the three, I would rate this as second behind Tahiti Nui. So, if you have one night there - go to Tahit Nui, but if you have two, then I would definitely go here. We had two fried... More

The menu is long but just go fit the fresh fish. Served in a sandwich or grilled in a salad. Both excellent. Decor is not great. But you cannot best the value here.

We went here at noon. Very nice setting, right at the window with ocean view and ocean breeze. Lunch was great. Spearfish wrap is recommended. My wife had a vegetarian dish with a salad. Lots of choices for vegetarians. A nice Italian rose is recommended. A tremendous experience if you love to eat good food in a good ambiance.

We had lunch at the Hanalei Gourmet October 4, 2016. This was the 5th time I have eaten here. It is always delicious!! My BF had the Ono Fish and Chips (the fish varies depending on what is available) and he loved it. I always get the Dewey Burger with caramelized onions (pure heaven) and gorgonzola cheese. You have to... More

Have been here before many times and delighted to report that they are as good as ever! Fun menu with all the right things-- supplemented by a fresh--catch of the day type chalkboard as well; Energized, lively atmosphere and good if somewhat erratic service; Great place to eat!
