This restaurant is wonderful! Food is excellent and the setting is gorgeous. Wonderful service, too! Plus, the bartender, Ben, is a former student of mine!

I was initially skeptical, but the Plantation Gardens Restaurant won me over. An elegant setting, particularly the lanai seating area, and excellent meals made for a memorable evening in Kauai.

We love the ambiance of dining on the patio at Plantation Gardens - the food is always creative and wonderful. We shared a delicious arugula salad as a starter and finished with an amazing Baked Hawaiian for desert. In between we sipped on 1/2 carafe...More

This restaurant is located just a couple of miles from the Grand Hyatt. The food and wait staff were both excellent. We got there about sunset and had a very nice view -- landscaping is very beautiful!

We were here on a family trip. As with most of the food on the island, there is an emphasis on using local ingredients. The food is solid, Hawaiian fare. Nothing too trendy. The dishes are familiar and tasty. We had the coconut shrimp as...More

I don't think there is a children's menu per se. The food would suit any child who enjoys good quality food. It is a very quiet / "adult" style restaurant, so if you have boisterous small humans I'd recommend the Olympic... More

No, unfortunately they do not. The restaurant hours at 5:30pm-9:00pm. Out of everywhere we ate, by far our favorite dinner spot.

As the others have mentioned they can do a bigger group, just call them. You may want to ask to sit on the lanai or more inside, but still open air. Enjoy.

Description
Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar is located in a beautifully restored plantation manor on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Dating back to the 1930's, the estate once served as the plantation manager's home for Hawaii's first sugar plantation, the Koloa plantation. Later, the estate was acquired by the Moir Family who built the world famous gardens that surround the restaurant. Our menu reflects the heritage of old plantation Hawaii, which celebrates the abundance and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Our fresh fish is caught daily by local fishermen in waters off Kauai. We use organically grown vegetables and herbs picked fresh on nearby farms and from our own gardens. Guests may choose to dine on our lanai overlooking tranquil gardens, lily ponds and tropical foliage or in our exquisitely refurbished dining room which features gorgeous Brazilian cherry wood floors, woven bamboo tables and plantation ceiling fans.
