We love Italian food and this place is a real find! In Kalaheo, up stairs in a small shopping center of all places! It's on the ocean side of Lihue Highway just east Steve's Food Mart. Call for reservations. Wonderful wine list and menu. Personal, friendly service. Very owner-involved.
Favorite Dish: I love the Canelloni! The pasta's tender and the marinara's fantastic. The Kalamari's also great for an appetizer.
This restaurant has the best sushi I've ever had, served in pleasant surroundings, with Japanese art on the walls, and Japanese music playing softly in the background. It was always worth the 45-minute drive from my home, and a favorite place to celebrate special occasions.
Favorite Dish: Soft-shell crab handroll, or salmon roe topped with a quail egg.
I've heard the non-sushi food in this restaurant is good, too, but I never got around to trying it myself.
The menu changes every day at A Pacific Cafe. The chef takes the best available fresh ingredients and creates culinary masterpieces that may be a little bit Asian, a little bit California, a little bit European. The plates themselves are individual works of art created by the chef's wife. This place can be really crowded, though, so I would go on an off night (mid-week) and make reservations. Decent wine list. Weird location for the kind of restaurant it is (in a small strip mall).
Favorite Dish: Any fresh fish
Ok, if you're not into pizza, don't fear---they have lots of sandwiches, desserts, salads, etc, too. Not only is the food great, but the ambience is neat, too. Definately not fancy, a place to go to right from the beach. While waiting for your pizza, gaze upon the hundreds of car liscense plates and funny paintings on the walls. If you get tired of looking at that stuff, watch the pizza maker tossing the pizza---or check out the wierd roots of the tree out back!
Favorite Dish: I LOVED the pizza! It's thick, with a butter garlic coating on the edges and a crunchy corn meal on the bottom. The toppings weren't bad either! We particularly liked the salami pizza. So much so, that we went back 3 times! But don't go on Mon., they're closed then.
If you happen to be on the west side of the island and you are thirsty, this is the place.
They serve sandwiches and beer.
There is outside setting and the view is nice.
A local favorite! An unassuming roadside eatery in Waimea with a few picnic tables. Messy to eat but totally worth it.
A nice reastaurant in idylic Hanalei on the north shore. Tables outside by the Hanalei river gives a nice setting for a good meal.
Favorite Dish: Their flash fired poke and ahi burger was great.
The restaurant is small, clean and decent. I actually did not eat here but my boyfriend did. He said the burger is good. Friendly people at the counter.
Well, this isn't a restaurant. Just a fruit stand. They had great smoothies and fresh pineapple. We stopped by on our way back from Secret Beach.
Ma has been arround for many years and her restaurant is like a walk into old times. Opens at 5 o'clock and serves many kinds of breakfast items.
Favorite Dish: I had laulau with rice and eggs.
Great Atmosphere, friendly staff.
Favorite Dish: Tuna Sashimi, Macadamia Nut Thai Peanut Sauce Salad, White Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries and Passion Fruit.

The food was only OK. We had a hamburger. There were roosters everywhere - and they are more bold than most roosters on Kauai.
