Stopped by for happy hour and though several employees were around, no one greeted or seated us. After several awkward minutes the bartender handed over a small menu (about six items) and without any greeting said "this is all we're serving." We had to ask where we should sit, despite the wait to be seated sign. Needless to say, this terrible service and the lack of variety turned us off to the place. Why bother having a sign advertising happy hour if you don't want customers!?

This is one of our favorites. We have been there many times and often take guests. The food has always been excellent. The entertainment is enjoyable. We highly recommend.

On the road to the Kailua Lighthouse. Found it on a previous trip to the island. Definitely a locals restaurant.Full of friendly folks especially around the daily 4-6 happy hour.

Food was excellent and presentation has a nice touch. Setting is OK but lacks any spectacular views due to location.

We went to the Bistro a few times while staying in Princeville and enjoyed it every time! Nice trendy setting, good service, all wines available by the glass. Their happy hour is a great deal and has a nice vibe. The menu had some unique items, everything we had was tasty (try the fish rockets). We'll definitely go back next time we are on Kauai!
