“best meal”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This was one of the best meals we've ever had. The tasting menu was wonderful. Each course was paired perfectly with the wine. The candied ahi was so good that I could have made it my whole meal. They are also very good with gluten free. I had my own gf bread, baked when I ordered. The wait staff was friendly and professional.

“Loved Hukilau Lanai”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

My party of four all had the mixed seafood grill a few nights ago and it was as described in other reviews: Pineapple-skewered prawns escorted on either side of the plate by mahi-mahi and walu on the night we were there. Unlike many places we dined on Kauai, they actually had great, attentive service. A gorgeous ice water container was placed on the table right away, so we didn't have to keep asking. This was the only restaurant where we got bread, and it was delicious. The atmosphere was classic Hawaiian, with tiki torches and a lovely tradewind blowing. Service was impeccable and the price was a bit less than a few others in Kapaa that were overpriced in my view, like the Eastside. All in all, a lovely dinner - the best we had on Kauai.

“Delicious Food despite Mosquitos”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The concierge recommended this restaurant and assisted us in getting reservations. The food was really great, especially the Poke Nachos. The only bad thing was the mosquitos, I received 5 bites in the matter on minutes, because the tradewinds were not blowing. The staff had repellant and that helped. It was great dining and service was excellent.

“Beautiful spot - lovely evening.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Very nice atmosphere. Food very good, wait staff very good. We sat in a pleasant, comfortable bar area while waiting to be seated. Everyone enjoyed their meal thoroughly. We highly recommend a visit. The restaurant is in a resort with very nice grounds and access to a beautiful shore. Take a walk there before or after dinner.

“excellent, but very kitschy -- like jersey in hawaii”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

when i walked into this restaurant, I thought i walked into the wrong place. it's a restaurant hotel, and the people there were all from Jersey. The restaurant was packed, but we ate in the bar area and the food was excellent. This was the best pork we had on the island. highly recommend.
