After a great day touring the garden island of Kauai, we decided to head to Hanalei for dinner and drinks at the "Descendants" stop on Kauai Tahiti Nui. A light rain moved us inside instead of on the outdoor deck, but the atmosphere of live music, pictures of past and famous guests and hula dancing servers and bartenders made for a fun and relaxing meal. Both couples ordered pizza and despite the price (come to expect this everywhere in Hawaii) found both to be very good, with ample toppings, on a crust that was crispy on the bottom and perfectly chewy on the edges.
We ordered the meat special sausage, pepperoni, onions, green olives and mushrooms, while our friends tried the Hawaiian pizza. Service was very good considering there were just two servers and the place was packed. Oh, the Mai Tais the menu states right up front..."Mai Tai Roe Ae" Tahitiian for "out of this world the best". My first sip confirmed that statement, this was by far the best Mai Tai I had ever tasted and my wife agreed. We've "sampled" Mai Tais in several Hawaiian restaurants and bars, as well as several mainland establishments and none compared. Tahiti Nui came through for atmosphere, food and Mai Tais!!!
