We stayed at the hotel for the first week of ourhoneymoon. I could go on and on about the food as we had all our breakfasts, and 2 dinners here. I have lived on the ocean my entire life, and know the highest quality fish the moment I see/taste it. This was outstanding across the board. Every meal was completely... More

Our server and food was excellent. Everyone was very very friendly. We would definitely come back. The bread was plentiful and fresh. The salad with papaya and pineapple vinaigrette was light and fresh. The Ono was very tasty.

This was our last dinner in Kauai. We had 2 reservations (different restaurants) and went with food over view. We were sitting in the middle of the restaurant (this is not a big restaurant at all), so the view of the ocean was not what you would have sitting at the windows). We all enjoyed our dinners and the creative... More

We had a wonderful dinner experience at Red Salt. Food: modern cuisine with touches of Hawaiian flavors. Beautifully presented food, fresh and well prepared. The prawns 4 ways was outstanding and the lobster ravioli was superb.. The portions are on the smaller side. Ambiance -- very upscale contemporary setting with a touch of Hawaii throughout, the fans, the art. The... More
