Description: Red Salt’s diverse menu by acclaimed Executive Chef and Kauai native Noelani Planas celebrates fresh Hawaiian seafood and produce in a casual, yet sophisticated seaside atmosphere. Modern dinner cuisine including vanilla bean-seared mahi, ahi tartare, and the decadently layered Red Salt burger are served in a contemporary setting. Select nights, the Red Salt Lounge is host to a sushi bar featuring the day’s freshest catch in innovative, isle-inspired rolls. Lounge and sushi bar seating are not available for reservation and is first come, first served. During morning hours, Red Salt offers tropical takes on traditional breakfast dishes, such as lobster benedict and lemon-pineapple soufflé pancakes, recently featured by Food Network.

Menu has a lot of varity and everything we had was great. I recommend reservations even if you are staying at the resort, it can get busy. You can also eat in the lounge for a little more low key dining experience. I highly recommend the Shipwreck Mist, but limit yourself as they creep up on you.

Gorgeous restaurant, friendly staff, fresh tasty food. Four stars as it is slightly expensive. Hot beverages not included with breakfast, around $3.50 might as well have one in your room. Pineapple soufflé pancakes very light and tasty but bit sickly, would recommend still.

Red Salt features exquisite menu options including potent mai tais! Make a reservation in advance or you'll be sitting in the lounge instead of the restaurant. Service is good but be patient with lengthy food prep time.

We had a lovely dining experience here. Our waitress was fantastic - kind, patient, attentive, professional..... The cocktails were delicious too. We basically had chosen the restaurant because of the vegan tofu entree. The chef was very accommodating, sending us vegetables and hummus instead of the bread which was not vegan. Our only wish is that we left with a sweet tooth and would have loved a vegan-friendly dessert option - a real one, like dark chocolate dipped fruit or coconut milk ice cream......
