My friends thought it was strange that I would eat Mexican food in Hawaii, but it was tasty and we were able to eat out in a food court that had live entertainment under the stars. A lovely young woman sang about stopping sex trafficking. Beautiful voice and a haunting message.

On a recent tour of the North Shore of Kauai, we discovered this quaint establishment. The service was pleasant. Our orders were delivered correctly. The dishes were delicious.

We were looking forward to a descent Mexican or Tex-Mex dinner but were quite disappointed when the food arrived. Everything they served had an overwhelming salt flavor. The chicken in the quesadilla and the chicken in the enchiladas were almost inedible because of the overpowering saltiness.

Good food close to our resort. We ate here after our helicopter ride with Sunshine Helicopters out of Princeville airport.

My husband and I wanted a less expensive, quality place to have supper and found them to be very good. Pleasant server and good service. Nice outdoor seating that we enjoyed. We had a steak burrito and we would recommend this.

Went here for dinner one night. We had carne asada burritos. It came with rice, beans and chips. Very good flavor. Service was a little on the slow side, but then it was dinner time and they were busy. Long line. There are tables outside for eating but we got ours to go. Don't miss this place. It's good.

My wife and I had dinner at Federico's our first night in Kauai. Being from Southern California, we consider ourselves pretty knowledgeable of Mexican cuisine. My wife had the fish tacos, while I had a fish taco and chicken taco. The tacos were fabulous. One of their homemade salsas was very spicy and quite tasty. We enjoyed the food so... More

My huevos rancheros were delicious. Wife's breakfast burrito was bland. Would go back however. Good choice in Princeville.

My family ate here once (you eat in the outdoor food court eating area), and I had my own take out a second day. The food was good, time to prepare it was reasonable. The staff brought the food out to the food court seating area. I ordered a mango chicken salad bowl for take-out one night, got back to... More
