Description: Chef Jean Marie Josselin has created another masterpiece with this new and unique tapas restaurant. Imagine dining in a rustic, yet contemporary, style dining room with an open view of the kitchen where the wood-burning oven cooks fresh, local produce, fish and meat to perfection. Share several different tapas and taste incredible culinary creations. Enjoy refreshing signature sangrias served tableside like you have never had it before. This chic new hotspot on Kauai"s south shore will have you coming back time and time again, making each experience a memorable one. "The Whole Process is About Sharing."

We really enjoyed our dinner at Josselin's. The dishes are very creative and a delight to look at. And ofcourse also to eat. The Sangria-Bar was also very nice. Would go again!

I have eaten here many, many times and I have never been disappointed. It is pricey but this is a resort community and I don't find the prices shocking.
The staff are attentive and super friendly. They can describe everything like they made it themselves.
The Deconstructed Ahi Roll is amazing both for its flavor and the dry ice/smoke presentation. The Butternut Squash Bisque, delicious. The Kabocha Pumpkin Ravioli is sublime and always causes a fight for the last one. I don't eat ribs but my husband swears by the Hoisin Braised Short Ribs and the 36 Hour Braised Pork Belly.
Absolutely everything I have ever had here is fantastic. Really.

The concierge at the Sheraton Poipu recommended Josselin's and it turned out to be a fantastic recommendation. The menu features a nice selection of sea food along with a couple beef, pork and lamb dishes. The food is tasty and well prepared. The staff is friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable. The atmosphere is Asian inspired, comfortable and elegant while being Hawaiian casual. The menu items are reasonably priced making Josselin's a good choice.

I was really worried that I'd be disappointed with this place given the prices but the flavor and quality was so so good! Loved it. Pricey but worth it (unlike our experience at Barcuda in Hanalei).

Stark atmosphere, felt sterile for a Spanish style restaurant.

Salad was good sized, protein portions were tiny. Bright lighting, noisy. Service was friendly and efficient.
