Our group tried the shrimp, ono, and ahi tacos and were a bit disappointed as the sauce over-powered the delicate taste of the fish. The service was attentive but we did have a bit of a wait for the check. It was your basic strip mall restaurant and very casual but definitely over-priced.

After several disappointingly average and expensive restaurants in Kauai, this was outstanding! This is New Mexico (Albuquerque) cuisine, and after having lived there, they hit the mark. Lots of great quality, quantity, and flavors for very reasonable prices. A real treat!

Has it been hard to find really good Mexican food on the Island,? Located in the Kapaa" Shopping Center, Verde's is the place to satisfy your fix. They have been open for 8 years and have recently renovated their eatery. Big selection of menu items and yes the food is very good. Great presentation and their seasoning of flavors makes... More

Thanks to a recommendation from our hotel host, we decided to give this place a try and so glad we did! We took the food to go, but had we stayed, the atmosphere is quaint and great for small parties of 2-4 at a table. The service was fast, the staff was friendly and the food smelled amazing. Ingredients were... More

Went for lunch based on reviews on trip advisor. Not sure if it was an off day, but every portion of our meal was disappointing. When I ordered a margarit the waitress said they were a special price of $3.00. I was excited about the great deal until I tasted it. So watered down, I might have just ordered a... More

Didn't want to sit down with a messy, overactive toddler so we ordered to go and brought it back to our hotel room. Wow, yum! Got the shrimp tacos and al pastor pork burrito. No need for extra sauces on the side cuz it was so tasty as is! Prices a bit high but worth it if you're in the... More

I loved this place. It has a modern casual vibe and the food was really good. I loved the decor and lighting, and it was just a fun place to sit and eat after the beach. It was also fairly reasonable in price considering many of the restaurants on the island can get expensive (from our perspective). I thought the... More

Who thought this would become our favorite spot for casual dining? The blackened mahi burritos rocked our world. If you talk to your server, you'll get an incredible margarita made with your choice of top shelf Tequila. Their signature cilantro margarita was pretty tasty, too. Fantastic ford prep and excellent service. Say Hi to Zai for us (the bride's parents... More

We stumbled on this. It is unassuming in a shopping center. Don't be fooled though. This place was amazing. I would go frequently if I lived here. The Mexican food has their own flair but is incredible. The basic Margarita on the rocks was very well made. My boyfriend ordered the stacked pulled pork enchilada...wow..mouth watering. The staff was attentive... More
