Good food all around and excellent service. Even the Grand Kids had a good time. I had the fish special and it was very good. My wife had Primerib and it was very good also.

We are staying the Marriott and it was raining so we decided to eat at the bar by the pool which we have done before. The however was full and we could only sit at the tables just off the bar if we checked into the restaurant Kukui's. So we walked all the way back to the checkin and we... More

We had breakfast here twice because we were so ravished after arriving to the Marriott at 1 AM in the morning and no time to go out for groceries for our villa. What a delightful surprise to have such a great breakfast (although not cheap....check for coupons) available before going out for our day. Lovely setting right next to the... More

As a guest of the Mariott, this onsite restaurant was a great place to grab a quick bite & drink. Service was great, and the food just as good. We had the MaiTai's just able everyday there.

As a frequent visitor to Kalapaki Grill and Kukui's I was disappointed to learn that they had a complete menu change at Kukui's and closed Kalapaki Grill. We used to have lunch at the Grill and dinner at Kukui's. Unfortunately things don't stay the same forever. They combined the two and for dinner have a new menu with smaller plates... More

The best MaiTais on Kauai can be found at Kukui's Bar at the Marriott. The bartenders are very friendly and professional. We had their delicious fish tacos for lunch and the view of Kalapaki Beach is hard to beat.

We weren't expecting much from this pool side restaurant, but we're pleased with the selections and food. Sushi was awesome. Service was a little slow, but they didn't have appropriate number of staff for the service needed to accomodate the tables seated. We would return for a convenient bite by the pool, or dinner at the hotel.

We had several lunches at Kukui's, all of which were good if a little on the expensive side. The surprise was the affordability of the Friday evening "Pau Hana" dinner. For $30 each, we had a nice salad from the salad bar, a cup of steaming shrimp bisque, and choice of three entrees, plus tasty rolls and butter. The entrees... More

Today ordered the king crab boil. It came with bits and pieces of broken king crab legs. The crab was not good. Asked the waitress about it she Checked with the chef and he said that is how it is supposed to be. Frankly I was embarrassed for the chef that he thought serving crab like that was ok in... More

Breakfast buffet is all that's available in the am. Evening dining is small plate style with 12-15 selections. Service is good . Gaylene was our server with 21 years at that property! Lunch accommodates the poolside requests and there's a bar in the back if restaurant.

Thank Ruthie03
