My sister and her husband were celebrating their 50th Anniversary, so I wanted to take them somewhere special. Plantation Gardens Restaurant did not disappoint. The meal was outstanding and the garden was additional treat. Price within reason for the Islands.

The setting alone makes a lunch here at the plantation worth it but the food and beverages are equally enjoyable and make this place a highlight to visit.

Wow! Poor service and not what we’ve come to expect from the area. We saw our waiter to order and to get the check only. Another server plopped my fish down without a word. No one offered dessert or coffee. Fish was okay, but nothing...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.

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.
