“Great service. Average food.”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

The service was great, our waiter was very nice and informative about the places to go and see. The food was average. The view was beautiful which off sets the food.

“Not Good”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Lava’s is the less expensive and more casual of the two restaurants on the grounds of the Sheraton in Poipu, Kauai. On the plus side, there is good service from the wait staff, a pleasant view over the pool, beach and ocean, and a relaxed atmosphere. On the minus side, there is the food. The dishes that we had at Lava's were mediocre, which is being kind. Our meals were almost floating in oil. Beneath the oil the food was nearly flavorless. With all of the fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables that abound in Hawaii, it is almost inconceivable how they can be prepared as poorly as they are at Lava's. Have a drink here, but eat elsewhere.

“Great location near the beach.”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We wanted to check out the Sheraton and after a nice walk called in to Lava's for drinks. They have an excellent choice of food and wines in an outdoor atmosphere. Service was very good and with champagne at $6 a glass we had quite a few. Also had the Hummus which was tasty and served with pita bread. Nice spot to while away the hours and relax.
