Description: Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar is located in a beautifully restored plantation manor on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Dating back to the 1930's, the estate once served as the plantation manager's home for Hawaii's first sugar plantation, the Koloa plantation. Later, the estate was acquired by the Moir Family who built the world famous gardens that surround the restaurant. Our menu reflects the heritage of old plantation Hawaii, which celebrates the abundance and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Our fresh fish is caught daily by local fishermen in waters off Kauai. We use organically grown vegetables and herbs picked fresh on nearby farms and from our own gardens. Guests may choose to dine on our lanai overlooking tranquil gardens, lily ponds and tropical foliage or in our exquisitely refurbished dining room which features gorgeous Brazilian cherry wood floors, woven bamboo tables and plantation ceiling fans.

Outside building looks old but it is a beautiful restaurant inside! It has an awesome atmosphere. Easy to access (can walk to from your condo if staying on site). Waitress was lovely! She accommodated our big family with tired & cranky kids! Food & drinks were good. Menu was very modern. Pot roast was delicious but sides were not very good. I would have gone there several times if possible!

The food here is excellent and creative (we're Seattle food snobs.) You can dine in the open air next to a small fish pond frequented by herons hunting their dinner. The setting is a tropical garden - very beautiful. Decent wine list, creative cocktails. It's a little off the beaten path, within the Kiahuna condo complex - maybe that's why it was never crowded.

Very good food, wonderful service and ambiance. We had two dinners here and we were very pleased with both - the pupu platter and the monchong filet were favorites. The soft slack-key guitar sound track was almost hypnotic and everyone there seemed to be in a very pleasant "space."

Have been coming to Plantation Gardens for 30 years. The food used to be good but now isn't even pedestrian. The facade of the old place is the same with enjoyable gardens and bar. The service was much too laid back and ill informed. But the reason we'll never go back was the poorly cooked fish, vegetables oiled and dead, and beef that was massively tough. Ta da to a tradition.

Service slow and perfunctory. Food quality should be better for the price. Reservation system hard to figure out with set seating times etc.
