We had two great breakfasts here. My wife liked our first breakfast so well that she woke up the next morning and wanted to go back. I had French toast made with Hawaiian bread--it was super. Coconut syrup was available as an alternative to maple. Pancakes are very huge an fluffy. Yummy with pineapple. Our late dinner was quite good, but not spectacular. After ordering dinner, we found out that our malfunctioning rental car had to be returned to the airport before the rental office closed. We need quick food service and we got it. The ambience is typical of island restaurants---a covered open air space.
The Olympic is on the second floor with no elevator and fairly narrow stairs.

We've been here twice. First in 2012, and we tried again today. The service is absolutely awful!! Both times!! Today we left after waiting 45 minutes and still hadn't received our appetizer or an apology or explanation. We got tired of waiting and left.

This restaurant is above the Kela's glass shop, the view is of downtown Kapaa.

We always get the fish tacos (with rice, black beans, and mango chutney. And the Kalua Pig sandwich (or you can share the burrito). Wonderful food and a great breeze!

If you are in kapaa this is a great spot for anytime of the day. It has a great atmosphere and huge menu along with huge portions. It is open air so you can sit along the balcony and take In the sights and people watch over the street. They make great drinks and beer too. We liked it so much we ate here 4 times on our vacation . Try the Kauai 5'os to drink and the fajitas are awesome!

they were not that busy when we went in on a Sunday afternoon. our waitress did get double seated. we started of with some tea. saw the table get served that came in after us before we did. asked another waitress if she could get ours and asked if she could get what ever we needed. I said we were have been waiting over 25 minutes for our food. She came back and said she didn't know what happened. I asked where our waitress was she said the kitchen. I told here we would like to cancel and asked for the bill for our tea. She came back later and I asked for our waitress again she wanted to know what I needed I stated again the bill she said that our bill was taken care of. so we left.
