Fantastic, large chunk fish tacos. Wonder aoili sauce on the Ultimate Chicken Tacos. Refreshing $3 margaritas during happy hour...if we weren't leaving tomorrow, we'd return to visit Douglas and his team for another great meal.

Love, love the fish burrito! Been there twice (fish tacos the second time) and hope I get to go at least once more before we leave Kauai. The three of us in our party all love this place and have tried quite a variety between the 3 of us. Nachos are a meal. Stacked Toastado is a volcano of food... More

Decided to try this restaurant by the reviews on Trip Advisor. We ordered the nachos as an appetizer which was a mistake. By the time our meal came, we had to have it boxed up and take it back to our condo to eat the next day. The nachos were huge. The meal was good, service was good but our... More

Packed full which is always a good sign. All staff were very Welcoming, friendly and helpful. We got our meals to go on the way back home from the beach. Amazing meals, all so fresh and beautifully prepared. We were given everything possibly needed to enjoy our meals, cutlery, condiments etc. Would defiantly eat there again and again.

Our AirBnB host recommended this restaurant within walking distance of the residence for Margarita Monday's - $3 house margaritas and they do NOT go easy on the tequila. Request Li Hing, a dry plum powder, on the rim over the salt - great flavor! We had the beef burrito and the pork sopapilla with their cheesecake for dessert. For 5... More

Our daughter loves Mexican food so we popped into this restaurant for dinner one night. Everything we had was really well done. Tasty food in a clean, well-kept place (but in a strip mall). Its a great asset on Kauai, which is a small island with no good reason to have such a nice Mexican place. It's not cheap but... More

Good mexican restaurants are hard to find on the island of Kauai. You can find mexican food, but not with fresh ingredients and usually heavier, pasty sauces. Also at most Mexican restaurants on this island we've noticed that when ordering chicken in the dish it is primarily dark meat and we prefer chicken breasts/white meat. Verde is the exception and...

A cafe style Mexican food that is in a n open mall. Busy with locals, always a good sign. The food was excellent. The service was good, friendly and welcoming. Good selection of beers. Do pay a visit.
