“Delicious Shaved Ice!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had both Jo Jo's Shaved Ice (original Jo Jo and Jo Jo) and Kalapaki Shaved Ice and the one at Kalapaki was much better. Instead of putting the ice cream at the bottom (so that it seems like you're digging for gold when trying to get to the ice cream), he put the ice cream in the middle. He would shave some ice, put the ice cream in, then put some more shaved ice on top of that. Soooo delicious! We love the mix of vanilla ice cream with the different flavors from the toppings for the shaved ice. This was definitely our favorite shaved ice spot on Kauai.

“Fast good food!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed in an Inn near the Beach Hut, and enjoyed being able to get a quick and delicious meal of fresh fish, meat, chicken, salads, taro fries, fruit smoothies, etc. If you have time, check out the upstairs where you can enjoy your meal with a view of Kalapaki Beach and Nawiliwili Bay.

“Good poolside bar food”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

I recommend the quinoa croquettes and the mark west Pinot noir. Service quality depends upon who is working but all staff are friendly.

“Great island experience”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Food was great and low cost. The service was fast and friendly. Opt for the coconut water it is $ 4.80 but well worth it . You get a coconut with a straw in it. I had the. #2 with Portuguese sausage, sit upstairs it has a great view of the ocean. The French toast is really good too!
