A word from Keoki's Paradise
Keoki’s Paradise invites you to relax in a lush tropical paradise with delicious island style cooking, exotic drinks & live music. Cascading waterfalls, meandering streams and lush foliage make this open-air restaurant one of the Island’s most striking. Seafood is the main attraction at Keoki’s and guests are treated to a variety of fresh fish selections and preparations. In addition, the contemporary menu offers prime rib, prime steaks and lobster. Keoki’s tropical ambiance, moderate prices and family friendly service have made it one of the most popular restaurants on Kauai. The lively Bamboo Bar features more casual fare serving both lunch and dinner and is seated on a walk-in basis only.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Wonderful Restaurant with great, friendly staff. Food is always top notch and prices are reasonable. I love Keokis Paradise. It is a gem."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Keoki's Paradise has great atmosphere and great food. We had crab cakes, macadamia nut crusted fish of the day, steak and hula pie. All were excellent. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. We were able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of their outdoor lush garden/pond area."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We went to this restaurant based on reviews from Trip Advisor and found we definitely agree. Even though this restaurant is by the road they have enough plants, trees, ponds and waterfall to make you feel you're elsewhere and you never hear the cars going by. The food and service were wonderful and although I didn't mark outdoor dining it is open air."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Loved the menu and food was delicious. Unfortunately, the service didn't match the quality of the food. Service was rushed and definitely not warm and welcoming. For the price, I expect a better experience."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Had a reservation for 7:15, was sat at 7:50. I was disappointed with the food but my children loved their burger. I had the prime rib, it was old and chewy. Service was average. Presentation was horrible. I'll stick to just grabbing a drink at the bar at times. Thank you anyway Keoki's..."

  • "Reading many of the reviews a bunch a folks were whining about the décor- really?!? Get a life- it's Hawaii for goodness sake. The tiki torches and plants looked and felt great. Why, you would almost feel like you were in an island paradise. Wait a minute- you are! Our food was very good. Our server was very helpful and the rest of the staff did a great job. We really enjoyed the evening."

  • "The happy hour for drinks and the Chef's Sunset menu were terrific deals. Good choices and delicious! We had my son's rehearsal dinner here for our group of 17 and the entire evening was perfect! My wife and I came back on our last evening on the island for a dinner for two and it was equally as perfect! Highly recommend!!!!"

  • "Amazing food! As good as ever. The fish was fresh and outstanding. Service was wonderful. Favorite at Poipu!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "This place was amazing. The food was wonderful, and the service we received was the best of our entire trip. Their specialty dessert pie has to be one of the best on the island. We returned to the restaurant two days later just to get some more dessert. The atmosphere is very nice, and they have live music playing in the evenings. Price was consistent with other similar restaurants."

  • "Had a great early dinner and great service. Would definitely return. Sophia, our server, was a true gem."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Felt rushed for a dinner, maybe 40 minutes from seating to finishing dining. Restaurant was crowded when we arrived but 50% occupied by 7, maybe they were expecting a large second seating and wanted us out."

  • "The early bird special is a great deal and the food was good."

  • "Last night in Kauai, great way to enjoy, Excellent service! Excellent dining suggestions, all of our party members enjoyed their dinners! Dining room is open to the outside."

  • "We ate here three times during out two week stay and it was the fish preparations and the service staff that made us come back."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Great dining experience, friendly staff, great outdoor dining setting, and probably the best calamari in north America, I kid you not. Small portions, but tasty and worth it!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Went with my children as we were leaving the Island. Kids had the filet special and I had a fish suggestion from the server. All of us were very pleased with the food and the service."

  • "We live locally on island. This is one of the restaurants we take our guests to. If you are fortunate enough to get Jeff or Josh, you are in for a quality dining experience. Mahalo!"

  • "Wonderful dinner - great food, big salad bar, delicious Mai Tai, fantastic view with cool ocean view, wonderful service and relaxing Hawaiian decor. Loved it as always!!! Every time we visit Kauai we have to eat at Dukes. Had a little trouble finding parking. Finally saw a valet sign and were immediately assisted. We took some great pictures on the beach as the sun was setting while waiting for our table. Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "What we liked best about this place was the outdoor dining on a lovely Hawaiian evening. There was two musicians. They both sang and one played a guitar. It created the perfect ambiance. The food and service were very good as well. It is part of T S Restaurants. The Duke's restaurants are part of that system. They are very enjoyable. There are nice shops in the same area as Keoki's Paradise, so you could shop before or after dining for an extra adventure. It was a fun dining experience."

  • "always enjoy Keoki's. food excellent but I felt little rushed. we were not quite thru with our salads (excelled Kale salad with lots of wonderful additions) and our fish entrees arrived. Very friendly wait staff and love the atmosphere here. for us to be in and out in less than an hour shows me that it was rushed....."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Another great dining experience at Keoki's. Both of our dinners were delicious and our waiter was very attentive and friendly. My husband had the Hoisin Braised Beef Short Rib which was so very tender and flavorful and I had the Kushiyaki which was also very, very good. We also enjoyed the calamari strips...very tender and served with two different dipping sauces which were both very tasty and complimented the calamari. The hula pie...as always...was great! Overall, one of our favorite dinner stops whenever we're on the island."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Better for lunch and drinks than for dinner. Dinner menu is average and evening table service is subpar. First menu choice was unavailable but took 10 minutes to be informed. Second menu choice came out stone cold. Ended up eating my dinner 15 minutes after the rest of my party was finished. Not the first time for this experience. Been coming to Kauai for 13 years and have always found this place to be much better for lunch and a casual drink than a selection for evening dining. Much better places to choose for a dinner venue."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We always go when on Kauai. It's open air and lagoon are peaceful. Never tried anything on menu that wasn't good and the staff is very friendly. Offers two menus, one in bar and one is dining room. Both are great."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The service food and price were all excellent. what we liked most about this place was the atmosphere waterfalls, high ceilings birds chirping"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "The hostesses were very friendly and helpful. The food was decent. Our waitress was disinterested. She corrected us on our pronunciation of some of the fish names, rudely. She insulted the condo we were staying in. And commented that we must be really hungry because we ordered 2 appetizers instead of 1...for a table of 5. She just seemed like she would rather be anywhere else. The decor and setting seemed a bit cheesy. Food was decent but with soma my great options in Poipu, I'd avoid this place."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Fantastic food. Reasonably priced with large portions. MUST TRY the HULA PIE !! Will return next time in paradise.."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This was a special occasion for us. We had just renewed our vows after 15 years of marriage. The restaurant has this Pacific island decoration, it is huge, with lots of tables, but you can always get a more secluded spot. Our waiter, Jesse, gave us stellar recommendations and he was really attentive. At the end we got a complimentary Hula Pie, which we could not finish because it was huge. Recoomended: Fish duo."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We ate at Keoki's Paradise twice. The second time we had reservations from Open Table and were seated immediately in spite of the crowds. The restaurant is essentially open with a covered roof and a Hawaiian ambience--torches, waterfalls, etc. First time I had scallops--pretty good but very small portion and the second time, chicken teriyaki and beef on a skewer. This dish was very salty and just didn't taste very good. The portions of vegetables were very small. Service was excellent. There aren't many good restaurants at Poipu Beach and as a result, the few restaurants that are there are crowded and overpriced. I think I'll go to Mauii next time."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Excellent fish preparations and great hula pie variations - highly recommend the mint."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Great experience with three small children. Our server was very good and able to give great recommendations from the menu."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We took advantage of the 4:30 to 5:45 sunset menu which is a wonderful value for $24. The restaurant was packed so the word must be out! A starter, entree and dessert for $24....wow! Beautiful lush setting in tropical Kauai, guitar players, Hawaiian quiet music...what's not to like!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Marty made the evening with recommendations on the specials. Entire staff was welcoming and friendly. Hula pie is a must. Fish cooked to perfection. Large restaurant, but obviously we'll managed."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Despite coming to Kauai for 15 years, this was our first experience at Keoki's, probably because were are always closer to the sister restaurant: Duke's. The staff was very welcoming. Service was great until the restaurant was fully booked, and then attention waned. The food was excellent: ahi sashimi, shrimp & tofu dumplings, monchong prepared two dfiferent ways, and of course--hula pie! Our friends commented that the food was better at Keoki's than at Duke's, and we agree. That is only a plus since Duke's is also very good. Enjoy!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We love the Sunset Menu here (served 4:45 - 5:45 PM) as it is such a great value for a wonderful meal. We go back often when we are on the island of Kauai."

  • "My husband, I and cousins went to Kauai for my 25th anniversary & Valentines Day. We went to Keokis for the Early Bird dinner & it was so delicious we went back the next day to order off the main menu. Delicious food & great service! Definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We were seated at a table in the main traffic area right by the kitchen. It was loud and busy and I should have asked for another table. Top of table smelled like dirty tag also. Food was good, waiter was adequate but we didn't linger because of the table"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "The food was excellent...seared ahi was the best I've found so far. Great service...our waiter was very attentive to our needs."

  • "We were out on Kauai for a family vacation and looking for a nice place for dinner. KP was down the road a bit from the condo and was the perfect place for us to take a minute. Food was very good, ended up ordering a few things off the bar menu instead of the table menu, but the selection was great. Price was what you should expect for a place that covers casual to groups and above..... Thanks much..dinner was great"
