The concierge at our hotel recommended Kioki's and we're glad they did because it was a close drive from hotel, had great live music, wonderful service, and delicious food. The restaurant is deceiving from the outside because it's pretty large when you get in. When we sat down we were tested to live music from "John and The Other Guy" who had beautiful voices and mixed Hawaiian tunes with mainstream songs sung with Hawaiian flair ("Hotel. California" and "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5 were 2 of their choices). Our waitress, Sofia, was awesome. Super friendly and attentive. She convinced me to try the kale salad because she said the kale was different than what we have on the mainland (Hawaiian kale is softer and has a nuttier flavor), and she was right. It was delicious! My husband had the short ribs and Sofia brought out a knife and told him if he had to use it to send the dish back because it should be falling apart without a knife. Luckily, he didn't need the knife because the short ribs were so tender. I had mong chong with garlic and basil (so tender and didn't even taste like fish) over rice pilaf. The restaurant then gave us a complimentary "hula pie" for dessert for our anniversary (so good!). Definitely recommend! More

Discover Poipu

Poipu, Hawaii, a quaint little town on the island of Kauai, has made itself into an appealing vacation spot for those enjoying their retirement or a weekend getaway. All aspects of the area, such as the beaches and the restaurants to the chickens freely roaming around, emit an aura of calm and relaxation. The neighborhood's local restaurants, like those decorated with a few glowing lanterns to ones that sit beside peaceful tide pools, serve delectable dishes, both from the “aina” and the “moana” – the land and the sea. With land-based meals, guests can enjoy delicious local steaks or chicken hot pot, and from the sea, diners can savor perfectly grilled ahi tuna, tempura shrimp, or macadamia nut-crusted mahi-mahi.
