Description: RumFire Poipu Beach is Kauai's oceanfront hot spot, boasting a magnificent setting at Sheraton Kauai Resort on the island's south shore. RumFire's exquisite dining room is the perfect choice for a memorable dinner, artfully blending locally sourced cuisine with global influences. The broad, open-spaced restaurant and lounge is flooded with natural lighting from floor-to-ceiling windows, which also provide incomparable views of the Pacific Ocean and Kauai's stunning sunsets.

The food wasn't bad. Service was kinda slow and the restaurant was freezing. But like most restaurants in Kauai it is overpriced for mediocre food.

Very fancy dining, wonderful view. Food was above average (not excellent), prices were very high, especially considering the tiny portions. Menu was EXTREMELY limited with only a handful of selections.

Excellent food, wonderful service, and a fabulous view overlooking the beach, ocean, and breakers. Amazing selection of food on the buffet and all of it delicious. The wait staff kept the table clean and the drinks hot. Exceptional.

you can get a good meal here, but you can also get a bad one, which puts this place in the category of those which I would not willingly re-visit, especially when coupled with the pricing. The pork chop was not good - bland and tough. The short ribs were excellent, but served in a small iron bowl which rendered it nearly impossible to separate the meat from the fat. The atmosphere is very chic - too chic for what you would expect and want when dining ocean-front on Kauai. the place has nice windows but does not fully take advantage of its location - it is closed off and super air-conditioned - they could do better with an open-air format. In sum - go here only if you are stuck at the hotel with no car, because you scarcely have a choice.

Way over-priced for so-so food. The place is beautiful when you walk in, but that's about where it stops. You have a lovely view of the ocean but it is extremely expensive and in my opinion, NOT fine dining.

flat bread pizza and a shrimp dish served on a "local" slipper??? How is that fine dining? Burgers and tacos. They have the fine dining price but not the food to go with it.

Service was fair, a little slow.
