this is second year in a row, and we knew this would be our first breakfast again. Delicious food, friendly service, and just a short walk from our "home" at Waiohai.

My husband had "the burger" and loved it!! I wasn't so happy with my meal it was just ok not worth the $37. So mixed reviews depending on what you order. I'd try again.

....for breakfast, might try it for an evening meal when we return to Kauai. We decided to go to breakfast with some of the friends who were holidaying at the same time as we were, they had two young boys who obviously need to be fed regularly! Our waitress was lovely despite a little mishap with her tray of iced... More

We had high expectations for Red Salt, based on the reviews, the menu (and the prices). We thought the food was good, but we were a bit disappointed. I had the seafood risotto and my husband ordered the 7-spiced ahi; both were excellent. I enjoyed my "Kauai style slaw," but in all honesty, for the portion size (quite small) and... More

Beautiful setting, good service, very pricey but below average meal. Fish was served barely warm and salads were tasteless. It's too bad as looked nice

We stayed at Koa Kea, and ate here the first night. The dinner was a bit pricey for the small portions - I would not go back for dinner. BUT, the following night we had sushi in the lounge area - it was amazing. Definitely recommend for sushi! Just not regular dinner.

Very good restaurant, with fusion cuisine concepts. You pay for you what you get: fantastic service and very good suggestions as well.

We were staying at Koa Kea for our honeymoon. The first full day there we decided to get breakfast. It took probably 20 minutes just to get a cup of coffee. I got the house special the souffle pancakes. Started off with a hair on them. They tasted so bland. I was so disappointed after I had seen so many... More

We went early and beat the the crowd. The waiter was great.The appetite scallops were so good that o would consider having them as s meal. We both had fish and we both said it was the best ever. The seasoning and sauces made the night. We will come where every time we visit Kauai.

This place has a modern, luxury feel to it. Dimmed lights, nice decor, decent service, but a few things came up short. A few things off the top of my head. There is no outdoor seating at all. There were great nights during our stay in Poipu, and not once did they have outdoor seating. Don't know why. We even... More
