This smallish restaurant in Kilauea is a must visit when you head to Kauai, especially if you are staying on the north shore. Not your typical Hawaiian restaurant. Setting is very eclectic. Service was outstanding and with our table being right next to our chef,...More

Go here! Great selection of wine. Super knowledgeable and friendly staff. Food was really delicious. Don't be afraid to ask the staff for recommendations. 100% awesome spot for sleepy Kauai's otherwise lacking food and wine scene.

Palate is located in the quaint north shore town of Kilauea, Kauai. Our mission is to provide a unique wine tasting experience for our guests. We believe nothing beats the simplicity and brilliance of a good wine paired with the perfect cheese and cured meat. We take pride in selecting wines from small, esoteric wineries from around the world and strive to create the ultimate food and wine pairing. Enjoy a variety of flavors in an unpretentious, casual environment with a professional and knowledge serving staff. Featuring a rotating wine list, we offer wines by the glass and tasting options. Our cheeses and cured meats are carefully selected to pair well with our wines and are served on marble, slate and wood cutting boards. We also serve house-made baguettes, olives, jams, and dijon mustard to ensure a memorable experience.
