Kauai Restaurants offer Fine Cuisine,
Fun Foods, and Island Atmosphere

On the island of Kauai, restaurants and other eateries are as varied as the island itself.  Slowly, the island has gained a reputation as a great place to experience fine and varied cuisine, from such simple fare as mouth-watering burgers to extraordinary Pacific Rim specialties. 

In large resort areas, like Poipu and Princeville, many hotels offer five-star restaurants along with chefs who've gained a reputation in the food industry as some of the finest in the business.  Hotel restaurants are usually a safe bet and are conveniently located near lodging and activities.

The best Kauai restaurants, cafes, bistros, and snack shacks, however, are usually located off the beaten track and are best identified by locals and frequent visitors to the island.  These "mom and pop"-type eateries usually offer not only great food but also prices that tend to be more reasonable than chain or resort restaurants.

These out-of-the-way Kauai restaurants, with perhaps just a handful of tables, also tend to be situated in picturesque locations, not easy to find but well worth the effort it takes to get there.  Ask a local where they enjoy eating.  Most likely, they'll choose a place that's not crowded with visitors, doesn't feature the prices of many "tourist trap" restaurants, and most assuredly serves some of the best food on the island.
