“Open air breakfast buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

This restaurant is in the Marriott on rice street. As usual Marriott never disappoints. The first level lobby is great and the concierge offered us a discount card for the restaurant at 20% even though we were not staying there. It was a spectacular tour of the lobby and lower lobby to get to the restaurant. The restaurant is poolside and offers a nice serene view. They offer a breakfast buffet which was great. Omelette to order and waffles. They had healthy choices as well. You can order from the menu if you prefer not to do the buffet. We ate way too much but it was so good. Afterwards we walked the beach and grounds. We saw a sea turtle grazing along the rocks. It was beautiful. What a nice way to start our day while waiting for the vog to life and rain to stop

“Poolside Dining with an umbrella”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Hotel dining experience, but excellent service. As with hotel restaurants you never know what to expect. I've dined here often and always appreciate the great service and really good coffee.

“Good food, spectacular setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Just off the beach and located poolside at the Marriott Kauai Beach Resort, the setting was wonderful. The food is good, not great, but well above average for your typical resort. Wine seems pricey, perhaps due to shipping expense. We spent $35 for a really mediocre French rose - I've spent a lot less for much, much better ones. But Kauai is a long way from France. All in all, it's an acceptable dining option if you're staying at the resort.

“Great poolside open-air restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

We had 3 meals here (they only serve breakfast and dinner). The breakfast buffet did not seem worth the price so we ordered from the menu every time and really enjoyed the food and very good service from our friendly Filipino waiter.

“OK for a resort restaurant I guess”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We got in here when Duke's was too busy as usual. Were seated quickly enough and wait staff were very pleasant and helpful. We werent that hungry so split a meatloaf dish. It was OK (not sure if I can expect better than that from meatloaf) and the bread was very nice. Nothing special here but higher prices due to resort setting.
