This restaurant is a small place in a strip mall and doesn't look like much from the outside. They have fantastic fresh fish dishes. Our group tried the ahi tostada, the ono taco salad and the garlic shrimp tacos. All were terrific. The ahi was seared perfectly and some of the best we had on the island.

Verde was clean with modern decor, friendly and helpful servers, great food and drinks! Prices were a little higher than what we expected but it was worth it.

We loved this restaurant so much that we stopped in again for a last lunch before heading to the airport on our way home. Great menu and lots of gluten free options. It's a tiny little restaurant, but the food is great!

Excellent chicken tacos! Ate here more than once when we were staying in Kauai. The restaurant is clean, and the staff were very accommodating both times. They should have a bigger dining room because once the locals hear about this place it will be jammed!

This is a small local spot that features excellent Mexican food. We had a variety of dishes and all were quite good. Espionage liked the tostada. There's a rustic bar with what looked like a large number of tequilas.

Clean food, but it's not anything awesome. Nobody tries hard on this island. Air conditioning usually broken

Enjoying the evolution of Verdes for six years. This gem will continue to impress for its good vibe, incredible, well-priced tastes and comfy setting. I've sampled most everything without disappointment while enjoying the well-thought out libations. For the vacationer its too easy to miss this jewel! Your loss!

Was a great find. Pastor tacos were great. Had the jalapeño margarita which was just the right combination of sweet and heat.

I'm not used to a menu that has so many vegetarian options but this one had a ton of delicious choices, plus they were willing to make substitutions of accommodate any food allergy. We went there twice, once we ate-in and the other time we took the food to go. They have a great kids meal that includes rice, protein,... More
