“Great experience”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Our party of 9 had a great experience. From the greeting and seating to enjoy a wonderful view through the end of the evening. Everything we ordered was delicious and the specials were outstanding. The wait staff were friendly, took time to explain the dishes delivered, polite and everything came in a timely way. This was a busy evening, but the staff were completely in their element. The dinner was a final event before we leave for Maui. What a way to celebrate our last night. An absolute must and we will be back when we visit Kauai again next year.

“Good food, great view”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Not cheap, but very good food, mostly middle eastern. There are also lots of fresh seafood items in less exotic preparations. Good breakfasts, also, of the American and Hawaiian variety.

“Luau - average”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Have always wanted to go to luau and I guess I have been holding off because I think they might be overpriced and a bit cheesy. Well - the Tuesday night luau at the Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant was fine and exactly what I thought it would be. Everything was good - standard buffet of local food (chicken, pork, veggies, poi etc). Service was fine. The luau dancers, band and fire thrower were great. Obviously some real talent with the dancers but honestly it was exactly what I thought - buffet food, happy dancers and don't need to do it again.

“We were in walking Distance”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is in a little cul de sac in a area called the Colony. We rented a home a short walk away.
I had been inside but we never had the chance to come for dinner. We had no reservations, just
the four of us. No problem. Had a nice dinner with appetizers kind of late. Nice crowd. A young lady was playing guitar. We could see into the Kitchen. Just a good feel,
no yelling in there, our waiter was attentive. We will come back.

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

My sister-in-law took us to this restaurant in Hanalei - it is right on the water and has a middle eastern/beach decor with big windows. My Ahi wrap was excellent! The fish was done perfectly and the flavors were wonderful! It is a long drive to get there from Lihue but worth it for the food and view!
