We really enjoyed sitting in the afternoon sun to eat a late lunch. The service was spot on and the food very good. We look forward to many more lunches poolside. The view is just gorgeous and the breezes welcoming. The day we were there there were high wind advisories so the breaking waves added to its charm.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner and had fantastic service. The food was quite good. It was a nice meal, but we did not feel we had to go back there a second time. We chose to find other restaurants to try rather than return here.

We dropped our college kids at the kayak place in Kapaa and drove north through the clouds and showers to the St Regis where we had a lovely lunch overlooking the pool at Nali Kai Grill. The North Shore Beach Salad was DELICIOUS but my husband didn't like his Mahi Mahi sandwich. We definitely liked the Mai Tais and, after... More

At the pool of the St. Regis Hotel with Bay Views, what is not to like? Ok, maybe the other people. It is a vacation spot, so its ok.

The Nalu Kai Grill is nestled beside the St. Regis pool with many tables nestled in a lush garden setting (these are the best spots by far). The menu offers typical lunch fare with a heavy emphasis on salads, burgers and sandwiches. We enjoyed the burger, pork tostada and green papaya mango salad being our favorite dishes (we ate here...

We got some mixed drinks here are they were great - the pina colada with a rum float was deliciously strong! The cobb salad was great, but the taro burger was a bit odd (not bad, just different than what I expected). The only thing is that the waiter took quite awhile to serve us on the beach - everyone...

Fish was a little small for the price. Cooked adequately. My wife had fish tacos that were good. Like most places in HI, will go again as the selection is limited without a major drive.

Located between the pool and the beach. We were seated in an open cabana which was nice on a 90 degree day which allowed the breeze to keep us cooler. The wait staff was friendly and well polished for visiting tourists. The food was excellent without a long wait. It was pricey due to the location but well worth it.

The views from the St. Regis in Princeville are incredible and if you're not staying at the hotel (we were staying at the Sheraton in Poipu) it's a great way to check it out and appreciate the incredible views it has to offer. Lunch was solid and nice to sit by the pool. Had the poke bowl which had a... More

Great beach/poolside restaurant at the St Regis. They serve a great Mai Tai. Try the chicken sandwich. It's big enough for 2 for lunch and comes with a small side salad that's very good.
