Josselin's Tapas Bar and Grill
Mothers Day DinnerThis was only my second time to this restaurant and it was very exciting for me, I brought my Wife and daughter and told them to order whatever their hearts desire and the next thing I knew food was coming in a great pace and great taste, we are a local family here on Kauai and this restaurant made us feel right at home. the evening went off without a hitch as we also ordered dessert and coffee. To all the staff and chefs Mahalo nui loa ( Thank you sooooo much) for making this mothers day dinner a memorable one.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTwo visits this vacation (again).You know the food is good if you ask your group "where do you want to go back to eat for your last night in Kauai" and Josselin's is picked.
We have eaten a good portion of the menu in the last two weeks. Our favorites this time are the feta cheese salad, short ribs, butterfish, Thai soup,5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the Best on KauaiJoselein's Tapas Bar and Grill is one of the best dining opportunities on Kauai. Jean Marie Joselein's has been a master chef in Hawaii for a long time. (He was the owner and master chef at A Pacific Cafe in Kapaa.) The menu now is so full of exciting choices that it can be difficult to to choose. We had our usual favorites, including the Deconstructed Ahi, the Roased Feta Salad, and the Braised Short Ribs, all of which continue to be delicious and outstanding. In addition, we tried the Stuffed Calzone and the Roasted Asparagus, both of which were unique and delectable in their flavor combinations. Go early and beat the crowds. You won't find anything comparable to Joselein's on the island.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMInventive menuInventive menu with food combinations you wouldn’t think go together but result in bliss! Start out with one of the 3 choices from the Sangria Cart. Then dive into the small plates choices. Don’t miss the “Corn Brulee”. The manager, Andrew, was around all night checking on each table and making suggestions. Sara was our server and her knowledge of the menu was in-depth. She must be a foodie to be able to describe the preparation so completely. We trusted her judgment so much we came back a second time and left the choices completely up to Andrew and Sara.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy with friendsGreat spot to meet up with friends or family. This energetic restaurant has a lot to offer from a sangria selection to many different foods that can be easily shared with your table.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food But NoisyWe love this place for the food and usually eat here twice each vacation.
But we needed to text each other at the table. No acoustical tile here. LOL.
Everyone is having a good time.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest on the island!We visit the island 3 or 4 times a year and always hit Josselin's. Living in Chicago, we have many restaurant choices and count Josselin's among our favorites anywhere. Stunning flavors. The sangria cart is fun - three different choices and you can also order the Love Potion - made with sparkling wine. The menu changes often. The corn brule is one of the most inventive dishes I've had. Poached pork dumplings - just outstanding. We've never been disappointed with anything on the menu. If it sounds good, rest assured, it will be. The manager, Andrew, is delightful - he always remembers us and thanks us for the business and often provides a dessert gratis. If you can only have one special dinner on the island, make it Josselin's!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisyNoise level takes away from an otherwise good dining experience.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTapas were great - variousTapas were great - various degrees of flavor - complex layering

Seared perfectly. Tempura description made me think it would be heavier... the batter is barely visable... which was great. WOW. Like eating butter.
We wanted to go back the next day for lunch just to have that.. too bad it's not open then.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always feel welcome atWe always feel welcome at Josselin's and taken care of and we always enjoy the food; it is always an enjoyable experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visit Kauai every yearWe visit Kauai every year and Josselin's is our favorite dining destination.

The small plates are lovely - interesting juxtaposition of flavors, every one was special. Our server was adept at timing the arrival of the plates, which we appreciated. This will go on our visit every year list!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJosselin's is wonderfullyJosselin's is wonderfully decorated with original Hawaiian art, and has an innovative tapas menu. I can highly recommend the Rock Shrimp and the Butterfish. Service was very helpful and recommendations of the waiter were spot-on. Our only complaint was the noise level. It was fine after a boisterous party of 12 left. Why do people think that no one else is in the restaurant and shout to someone all the way down the long table? Please, people, the other patrons of the restaurant are trying to have a good time too, and don't want to hear your conversations. Overall, I can recommend Josselin's as a top-notch, delicious place to dine.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, don't miss it!The best food ever. We do a lot of fine dining and I can say that it was my favorate on kawai. The shrimp and scallops were great along with everything else we ordered. Glad we went.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to the South ShoreMy husband and I have been coming to Kauai for many years and Josselin's has quickly become one of our favorite restaurants. One year we went there twice in one week! Favorite dishes: deconstructed ahi roll, portabello and spinach "pucks," roasted feta cheese. They also make great varieties of fish. And don't miss the rolling cart of sangrias. Be careful: they're potent!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
