“good choice”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

On our first meal out Red Salt was our destination. We stayed at the Kihuana Plantation so just a short walk from there. We took a short cut on the beach. The service was good, I had the Bronzed Diver scallop with the Kailani Farm mixed green, my husband had the pork and the beet salad and everything was very tasty. I love to cook myself and often think I could do better when I go out. Not with this one. I thought that the place was a little noisy and we could not hear the music very well and of course the price... Oh la! La!

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Great meal at Red Salt. Romantic spot and sushi is the best! Very fresh and beautiful presentation. Service a little slow but found this common throughout Kauai. I would definitely recommend Red Salt for a special dinner!

“Good Service, Average food”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We stayed at the lovely hotel and houses this restaurant. We ate breakfast here every day and dinner here twice. Breakfast was very nice but after 3 days, we wished they offered some specials to mix it up a bit. Dinner was average at best. The sushi was overrated and my fish entree was overcooked. It was too bad, because service was good and the look of the restaurant was nice.

“Best meal on Kauai”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Yummie, expensive, but worth it!! A little tough to find because its in the hotel (no sign on the road), but awesome food, the lamb is amazing. We walked in after a day of hiking and exploring, and they sat us right down (felt a little under dressed, but it was okay)
