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.

We had high expectations for the food here as had received a recommendation for the fish. As with other reviews I would say it was good but not fantastic
Liked the overall nuance and setting which was beautiful at sunset and yes you have a walk to and from the car park....but that's a good thing!
It felt like a colonial house and even had old style fans that used to be operated by hand but had been mechanized

Please have your wait staff pay more attention...we had an incredibly rude yuppy couple with a gigantic stroller and crying baby disrupt everyone around them - the parents took turns walking the crying baby up and down the gardens near all of the tables on the veranda - at one point, the father took the baby out to the lawn and proceeded to change it's diaper in full view of the diners - no staff said a word to them that this type of behavior is inappropriate at a restaurant - yet they were oblivious to anyone around them so maybe they just didn't care. We all had one word for them...babysitter! The food was mediocre - told the waiter Noah that I hated, hated, hated onions - my plate arrived with a slaw that was piled high with red onions - he told me it was good I had a bread plate that I could shove them onto..the last drink we ordered never arrived - he said he didn't hear us order it....we finally just left after canceling our coffee orders - what a waste of time and money. Would never go back!

Liked the setting and the atmosphere. Great selection of fish, although Merritt's (sp?) in one of the nearby shopping centers was better

Food is average (good but not great) but I recommend this restaraunt more for the ambiance and the value (much more reasonable than most restaraunts around Poipu and Kauai). Go here around sunset or night for a nice relaxed meal on it's patio set in a nice garden.
