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.

My wife and I chose the Plantation Garden for our wedding dinner in October 2008. The experience from beginning to end was overwhelmingly positive. From the initial contact about making the arrangements, to the day of the event, to the end of the evening the entire staff bent over backwards to make our dinner spectacular.

The dinner was for 16 people and we arranged to hold it on the lanai overlooking the koi pond. The pre-arranged food and beverages came of without a hitch. Our guests were universally in agreement that the food couldn't have been better. All the entrees had a nice 'island' touch to them.

Over all our bill was about what we expected for a spectacular dining experience such as this. Not singularly inexpensive, but well worth it.

If you enjoy seafood, this is worth a visit.
Restaurant Abience, menu and food presentation are excellent.
Tiger Prawns, and Seafood Stir Fry were highly recommended in our group.
Portions are a little small, but are VERY tasty and nicely presented.

The restaurant is a little tricky to find as it's part of a hotel/condo complex, so watch for the signs on the road (very close to Keoki's & Roys Restaurants though).

There was a croaking frog on a nearby lilly pad that our teenagers found entertaining.

We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This has been my favorite restaurant on the island so far. The ahi appetizer platter is great and I had the seafood coconut curry soup which was excellent. Better than average wine list from what I have seen so far.

The Plantation Gardens has outdoor seating that over looks the gardens that are lighted in the evening... very romantic. The seafood presentations were amazing. The most beautiful seared Ahi salad, Ono Lau Lau and stirfry with veggies. The price was right for dinner for Kauai between $21 - $32 for a good portion of seafood.

Easy walk from Sheraton. Actually right next door.

Service was great and the desserts were also yummy.

Enjoy!
