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
  • " Manager took a bribe from a customer who he knew and did not have a reservation and left others standing who did have a reservation. Food was Denny's quality at best. Server was good other employees dismissive. Passing on this restaurant would be your best bet. Sad that we live on Kauai and we can't say anything positive."

  • "This was such a great place to go! I had the Filet Mignan and I have to say it was the best steak I've ever had!! I have a food allergy too and they were VERY accomadating there too! I would have to say I was extremely impressed with this place!! If in doubt, GO! Sat at a table on the side near the little stream, felt like we were the only ones in the place, so fun!"

  • " My buddy from Los Gatos recommended Keoki's, so we checked it out. We loved the live music and decor. The fresh fish 3 ways was great and so was the seafood risotto, that came with a petite lobster.The dinosaur kale salad was primo with goat cheese, pommegranite seeds, and cured golden beets. Crab Cakes were mostly crab with a little stuffing. My wife loved the vegetable based onion soup too. The service was excellent, we had a superb waiter who took care of every need. He was very friendly and, polished, informative, and interesting. He deserved a large tip. It was our 30th Anniversary, and he came out with a comped slab of Mud Pie that was delicious and an excellent climax to a superb final dinner in Kauai. WELL DONE!"

  • "We came here last summer and loved it, so we re-visited Keoki's on our trip this summer. It was just as fabulous! I do recommend making reservations since it is such a popular spot. The food was great, the service impeccable, the atmosphere amazing, and there was a lovely band playing great music in the bar."

  • "This restaurant did not have the courtesy to cancel our reservation!!! Iselle came and hit many businesses, but they all had the courtesy to contact us to cancel so we can make other arrangements. It was 7:30 pm, we arrived to a dark restaurant, but fortunately, Roy's accross the street was open and accomodated us. I have informed many of our friends and hotel in the area not to consider this location for dining."

  • "Nice dinner, great server- but circulation by the booths we sat in was very poor. I was disappointed to get that seating with a reservation."

  • "The drinks, like the Mai Tai made with local Koloa rum, or the piña colada served in a carved-out pineapple, are fantastic. The environment is in a small outdoor shopping center, where it sits along with Roy's, Puka Dog, and Starbucks. But the restaurant has the corner spot, and they built up a nice outdoor water course with grass to make for a nice setting. And their electrically controlled awnings allow them to block the sun from burning you when you have one of the choice outdoor tables. The only knock is the food. Eat at the cafe instead of the restaurant, unless you want typical "Hawaiian" surf and turf, like Macadamia Crusted But Bland Everything. Or save the airfare and eat at Duke's in Huntington Beach, CA."

  • "We have been to Keoki's many times and were uncertain whether to try again, but this visit somehow really hit the mark. We were seated at a table which was smaller than usual and close to the garden which was great as it minimized the noise and we were able to hear each other. The food came fast and everyone was happy with their meals. They used to serve salad with an entrée purchase...this seems to have stopped..too bad. I also must mention I made the reservation the day of our visit and though open table was not able to seat us, the young lady I called at the restaurant called me right back and got us in at the time we needed."

  • "Our family enjoyed dining at Keoki's. The kale salad was outstanding. The mahi mahi of the day was delicious and mud pies - signature and chocolate - yummy."

  • "This is a good place to take kids for a little "Hawaii" style dining. The atmosphere is fun and, for both kids and parents, the food is great. I came a few years ago and it was as good as I remember. I recommend any of the fish dishes. Also, only place on the island that I found with steak on the kid's menu (and some of the things every other place in America offers for kids). Service is the only downside, as they are definitely "high-volume" oriented and a bit on pitching things to try, but if you can look beyond that then you will really enjoy it."

  • "This is a good spot for Hawaiin food. The food was authentic and very good. The Menu was large and the wine list was adequate. It is an open casual restaurant and some areas have better ventilation than others. Our service was good with the wait staff always available."

  • "We chose Keoki's Paradise for dinner at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We are glad we did! Food was very good and locally sourced. Everything tasted so fresh and delicious. The service was truly exceptional. Our server, Josh, was attentive and very knowledgeable regarding various menu items. Don't leave until you've tried the Hula Pie. Menu was fairly priced."

  • "Keoki's setting is such a surprise when you walk in the door--not an ocean view, but a very private beautiful "jungle" that blocks out all road noise. Very charming and beautiful. Staff are well-trained, warm, and gracious. Kudos to our waiter Caleb. Keoki's serves seasonal fish (monchong and opah the night we were there). It is great to have several choices in how it is prepared and your waiter will let you know which preparations especially complement each fish. A lovely night!"

  • "Except for the flies (which are always a problem eating outdoors, but especially in the tropics), everything about this dinner was lovely!"

  • "It was our second visit back to Keoki's during our week stay in Kauai. Both times we had great service and the food was very good. The Hoisin Beef Ribs are really good along with the Onion Soup which is probably the best I've had."

  • "Our family enjoyed a wide variety of lunch selections that would satisfy all tastes and the servers were very accommodating and extremely friendly!!!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Great wine & cocktail list. Dinner was average. Appetizer dip was hard before it was even half empty. My Maui Onion soup had major hard onion peel in it and I had to pick them out. Friends had the Prime Rib sliced done Texas style and it was perfect! Hula Pie melted half way to the table. Hair was found in my friends dinner of fish in the string beans. So overall, I won't dining here anytime soon."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We went twice during our 10 day stay on Kauai. The quality of the food, portion size, service and atmosphere were all top notch. Open air dining against a very tropical backdrop (great landscape design work to create) make this place a must go. Friendly and knowledgeable service from hostess to wait staff was experienced on both visits. Get the Hula Pie too - 1 order will satisfy 4-6."

  • "Ate here two nights of our vacation. Friday, June 20th. The staff was very polite as we did not have reservations. We were seated immediately in the dining area. Waiter was super and suggested various items that were awesome. The second night we dined (June 26th) the waitress was not as friendly and we seemed to not be very important customers for her, like we were an inconvenience to her night. Food was still awesome!"

  • "Atmosphere was good, service poor but very nice fish preparations. Too expensive"

  • "We had the fresh Opah and it was outstanding. Almost always have a great meal at Keoki's, highly recommend!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Dinner at Keoki's was great. The way they have the gardens surround the tables makes you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle. Noise level was nice and quite with live music that was not too loud. The food was very good and the prices are very fair for the quality. The kale salad was great!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The concierge at our resort suggested we try out Keoki's. I was not fully satisfied by the service. We reserved a table for 8:00pm, but had to wait an additional 20 minutes before being seated. I would expect a wait like this on a busy night without a reservation, but by booking a table I expected we'd be in for a much shorter wait. Aside from the initial delay, the atmosphere, and more importantly the food was fantastic. I had the seared ahi, and my husband the chicken and beef skewers. The salad we ordered to start, was so-so, so I'd recommend one of the other entrees if you're in the mood for an appetiser before your main meal comes."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "My husband ordered the Prime Rib and it was to die for. The meat was cooked to perfection. It was juicy and the sauce added all the special favors. I ordered the Thai shrimp and Crab cakes and I couldn't get enough. This was are first time in Kauai and we had just finished a kayak and zip line tour and one of the couples recommended it. They have a reasonable price sunset menu and the bar menu is pretty awesome too. Everyone must try the Kimo Original Hula pie! You won't be disappointed. We were on our honeymoon and it was the perfect atmosphere for us. Great job and thanks for everything."

  • "Expected a great meal. It disappointed. Of our group of 7, no one was particularly impressed with their food. For these prices, we should have been wowed. They try to be fancy...food is unexciting. Drinks were funky and weak."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "The food here was pretty good. It's a bit of outdoor seating which was nice. The drinks however we're pretty bad. You want to have a tropical drink while in Hawaii, but at these prices it needs to be more then just fruit juice. We each tried 2 since we thought it may just have been a quirk but no. Too many other bar restaurants do this right, so we won't be back"

  • "Keokis is one of the restaurants that we visit each time we are in Hawaii. The food is great and you cannot beat the atmosphere. No one should visit Kauai without having dinner at Keoki's. The Maui Onion Soup, Filet Mignon and Hula Pie are our favorites."

  • "I love coming here for dinner. Never disappointed! My boyfriend was pleased with the Kale salad and also liked the fish duo that he had for his entree!"

  • "We went to Keoki's for our last evening in Poipu Beach. We were seated near the stream and from the wonderful Carrot/Pineapple muffins to our entrees, everything was wonderful. Our server was great in helping me select a fish for dinner and my husband really enjoyed his Plum sauce ribs, they just fell off the bone and were perfectly prepared. I would strongly suggest Keoki's as it was our best meal of the week. We're sorry we found it at the end!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We took our guests from the mainland here for dinner and were very pleased with Keoki's. We and our friends enjoyed the Hawaiian / tropical ambiance. The service was outstanding and the meals were delicious. Bring back the bread though. The muffins are wonderful, but not all want sweets to start their meal. Thanks for another great night! "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We visit Keoki's every year when on vacation in Kauai. This used to be our favorite restaurant, but it keeps getting more expensive with less to show for it. When we started going there about 20 years ago, the salad used to be included with the meal. Now for the last couple of years, you have to buy a salad if you want it. Contrast that with Duke's (same restaurant group, same island), where the salad bar is included in the meal for about the same price, and this place really isn't that great of a deal anymore."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We had dined at their sister restaurant, Duke's, so we were expecting a great meal with great service. Though we were slightly disappointed with there being no salad bar, the disappointment didn't last long! Interesting and delicious salads, different twists on entree selections and the chocolate hula pie with salted caramel were all killer! Lastly, but certainly not least the service was top notch. Thanks Sofia!"
