Description: Our relaxed and spacious second story, open-air restaurant has a great ambiance and best picture taking views of Hanalei's mountains and waterfalls. Visitors and locals come time and time again for Bouchon's Pacific-American menu that's filled with a great selection of fresh homemade pupus, local caught seafood, teriyaki chicken, ribs and a premier sushi bar second to none. The famous Copper Bar serves up everything from soft drinks to Saki, including our very popular Mai-Tai. Located in the heart of Hanalei, we have the perfect gathering place to enjoy with family and friends.

“BEYOND Rude Server”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I think we stumbled upon the rudest server on the entire island here at Bouchons. I get the fact that it's the busiest time of the year and maybe the people of Kauai don't like their island being invaded by thousands of tourists BUT if you don't like people, don't be in the service industry!! The food was good, the prices right and the view was great but the server's awful attitude overshadowed the whole experience.

“Memorable Service and Food, Great Window Seat”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Bouchons was our 2nd stop after leaving the Tavern at the Prince golf course. It was Christmas eve and we have never seen the area so crowded.

Some were on edge due to the crowds though we found our server to be incredibly pleasant and happy to be working.

She made good recommendations for the Tuna Sashimi and the crab-crusted Ono. Both were excellent, and the Ono dish was a crab-cake on top of the filet. We split the meal which they took care of in the kitchen and brought 2 plates - no split charge.

“Went back three times”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

The best MaiTai on the island, and the calamari is the best, our server gave us the tartar sauce for us to try, simply great. Our first stop after a seven hour hike up the Kalalau Trail.....

“Best Sushi”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Possibly the best sushi ever. Without a doubt, try the Osaka 2 Me. Service was excellent provided by Michael (from Santa Barbara 30 years ago), extremely friendly and helpful staff, drinks were incredible and food more than delectable. Separate bar area if you just want drinks but if you are a sushi lover, eat here. Sorry we can't speak to the other dishes.

“Great fish tacos, beautiful views”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

While visiting Hanalei we decided to check out this restuarant for lunch. We got there right as they were opening for lunch, so got a table at the window looking down over the parking lot and street below. The view was beautiful and fresh air refreshing.

My husband and I both ordered their fish taco specialty - delicious! The fish tasted very fresh and the tacos had a great combination of seasonings.
