We have frequented the Bistro for years and went there for dinner last night. It keeps getting better all the time. Best place to dine in Kilauea. Hands down.

Treat yourself to some delicious fine dining in Kilauea! The succulent braised beef and polenta were divine. The Guava Rita is the perfect island cocktail.

After visiting the lighthouse we stopped by this restaurant for lunch. It was good. I got a beet salad I really liked, with lilikoi dressing. My husband got a Kauai beef burger which he also liked. Our server was very good, she was very attentive....Our table sat against a wooden railing. It was a covered area but completely open so we could feel the breeze. It was a nice way to enjoy our lunch.More

We stopped fo lunch and were seated promptly. I ordered ordered one of the special items and substituted sweet potatoe fries. When our order came the regular fries were on the plate. They remedied the situation promptly. The food was delicious and the staff was...courteous.More

The Bistro was recommended by the host of our Airbnb in Kilauea. After our first meal it was easy to return on two subsequent nights. The "small plates" on the menu are substantial, the salads fresh, the beer cold, the service great, the setting pleasant,...the prices amenable...and the restaurant always busy (a good sign).More

We ate last night at the Bistro and had a wonderful dinner. Jordan was our waitress and although new she did a great job. All the appetizers and dinners were very good. Live music and just a fun vibe. Try it if you are in...the North Shore of the island.More

Our first night out in Kauai. The Bistro was a good choice. We went early (6PM) got seated immediately. I was offered samples of their beers on tap. We ordered, and my first of 2 appetizers, Sausage w/pickled veggies, was a meal!My second, Seafood Gumbo...over creamy was picked at and the rest taken home. My wife’s Scallop Special was okay, and my son (48) had grilled Ahi Tuna, which was good.More
