We always make sure we take the time to eat here for lunch when in Hanalei. Ambiance is very casual and fun. The fish and chips are my favorite! Always fast and friendly service. We'll keep coming back.

We frequently visit Hanalei Gormet when we are visiting Kauaii. It's generally our first food stop of every trip! While their burger is always a solid choice, I have had several different menu items (as has my husband and in-laws) and haven't yet had anything that wasn't terrific. Enjoy!

Great local spot with a very relaxed beach vibe, but then again the whole town of Hanalei has that feel. Fish tacos are awesome, different specials each night too.

We stopped for lunch here with our cousins. The club sandwich and fish tacos were good. Service was good, if somewhat under staffed. We would eat here again.

We ate at this restaurant twice and had the shrimp boil appetizer and the chicken gorgonzola both times. The shrimp was really good and was served with melted butter or cocktail sauce. The chicken was served with a salad and the salad dressing (mango vinaigrette) was excellent! The focaccia bread was not my favorite. My husband and I shared both... More

Been here several times and always have a great lunch. Love their fish and chips, big enough to share if you aren't a huge eater. Big caesar salad as well. Gets busy but wait staff friendly

This is located in a little shopping center that used to be a school. It was just charming and retained some of the schoolhouse flair. The service was quick, friendly and the food was filling and excellent.

A highlight of our visits to the north shore of Kauai is a meal at the Hanalei Gourmet. If our schedule allows, we like to join other fish taco aficionados at one of the two weekly events. Currently, they are held on Monday and Thursday from 6 to 9 P.M. We arrive early and get a table as soon as... More

Nasty Waldorf salad. Decent Chicken soup. Tuna salad above average. Tuna sandwich good. Cheapie greasy crusty chips. Out of gluten free bread. Home brewed ice tea without flavor. Service slow and terrible. Tourist trap.

Came here for dinner twice during our visit. Casual and relaxed atmosphere and food. Got a salad and added on chicken our first night here. It was so flavorful and moist that I ordered the chicken as my entree on our 2nd night here (ginger marinated chicken). Shared the Kauai pie for dessert and ate every bite!

Thank Melissa B
