We love this restaurant, especially since they instituted valet parking. We have been coming here for a few years and it is one of our favorites. My only recommendatin is to expand the menu to include more fresh fish options (eg shrimp scampi, butterfish, almond crusted salmon, seafood medley. etc) and more pasta dishes. Service was exceptional.
View is the best in Princeville! Food is excellent and service is spot on. My favorite!
The overall experience was great. Very casual and relaxing. The view was spectacular.
During our stay in Princeville, Kauai, our group of 4 (2 couples) enjoyed many restaurants. Happy Talk was certainly one of the best! It was so good, in fact that we ate dinner there twice and stopped in another day for drinks and snacks during Happy Hour.
The food was excellent, the entertainment was superb and the view is one of the most beautiful in Kauai. During eac dinner there was live music by some very unusual and talented duos . They played a wide variety of music and really connected with the customers.
Happy Talk is in an obviously popular and busy condo/hotel so do't be bashful about using the valet parking. If you arrive early, take the elevator in the looby down one floor and see the beautiful pool, again with a fantastic view of Hanalei and the Pacific.
If you are looking for a place for quiet conversation this is not it. For a great party and delicious food this is #1!
Very disappointing. Food was so so. Music too loud to talk. Chickens stealing food off table. Little boy at table next to us had his grilled cheese stolen out of his hand by a chicken. Can’t recommend.
OMG! What a wonderful, fun, enjoyable experience! Just had the most wonderful coconut shrimp dinner and watched a beautiful sunset into the ocean. Service by Tom was excellent. Food was outstanding. Live music was totally enjoyable. We will be back!
Best dining view on Kauai! Happy hour daily 3-5 pm got our attention! The setting is stunning and the food/service was awesome! The band was local and very good! Been come to Princeville for over 20 years and this is the best!! Don’t miss it!
Happy Talk is a great restaurant and bar with live music. We always enjoy our time there.
Found this gem online while we were staying in Princeville. It was a perfect place to relax, enjoy the scenery, and have great food and cocktails. The music was not overwhelming, but very entertaining.
Absolutely best place in Kauai. Most beautiful view, great creative local food, great entertainment. ESP enjoyed Falling Romance on Monday. Actual photo from our table. Looks like a post card.
Awesome experience would highly recommend
Superior view ! We ate here three times during our stay. All of our food was pretty good. Ribs were very good. Numerous TVs and live music every night. Only open 5-9. That is bummer because that is basically your only choice for food. We had some fantastic servers and a few pretty good ones. Menu is limited but view is worth it.
Good food, cold beer, delicious mixed drinks, and wonderful atmosphere. Tends to be a little pricey but on par for what you would expect to pay on the island.
We love the happy talk for a casual meal with a great view. There is often live music too. Go at sunset!
This is a combo of a sports bar, restaurant, dance place. There was a live band that was a little too loud for any dinner convo. Tv's everywhere. Good service, good food, large portions for a good price. The ribs and mashed potatoes were delicious, BLT was huge and yummy, garden/spring rolls were huge and fresh. It could be a romantic spot if you sat ouside away from the band.
Lively & fun atmosphere. Live music is good, be prepared to talk over it.
This. Is hawaii!! Food was good. View and ambience were wonderful. Cocktails were very festive.
Our Go-To place on the North Shore for good food, good drinks and an outstanding view.
We received our food but had no utensils to even eat. Server didn’t check on us to make sure so we sat for a while until we could get someone’s attention. Food was nothing special and overpriced.
Absolutely fantastic. Great experience. Awesome food. And the service was top notch. Fun for big groups and very accomodating for small kids. All in all, a must visit when visiting Kauai
Awesome experience, great food, great entertainment/live music.
Great menu and service. The food was delicious and the portions are perfect! Would definitely go back when we are in town.
Great place to hangout without feeling the need to get dressed up. Thanks for letting us watch the game we wanted to see.
We enjoyed our dinner and the service was great. We requested a table with a view in the online reservation and when we arrived it was ready promptly, with immediate service to follow. We’ll be back.
Great location, live music, nice ambience
Great ribs. Good service & salad. For Hawaii the prices were very reasonable. BUT...who thinks a trumpet is good accompaniment to drinking or dining? The view was nice & food good but the noise was intolerable for us.
Amazing view, fantastic service and great food! Our waitress took great care of us. Drove from Westside Kauai, worth the drive, mahalo Happy Talk! PS, if you enjoy mules, the Hawaiian Mule is a must order.
Fantastic! We loved it. The food, bar, view, music, and ambiance were amazing.
Enjoyable meal at Happy Talk. We went in the evening so I’d recommend visiting during lunch to better see the view. It’s a little loud with live music or even without the music. Nice place.
Happy Talk is always a great experience. We hope that one day the other restaurant in the resort will open!
Great music and food in a beautiful setting....a can't miss while in the north shore! Great for happy hour or dinner!
Music was a bit loud but very good, extremely skilled musicians. The food was fresh and served quickly. Drinks were slower. Prices were steep but the kids’ meal option provided a decent value.
Terrific ribs. Good service. Lovely music and fun setting.
Great food. Great view
Bar food is what they offer, not bad but not great either. Ambiance is energetic and fun. Service good not great.
The food was quite good, but the service was pretty spotty. We ordered and received our drinks quite quickly. Our child dinner showed up very quickly (which was much appreciated!), quickly followed by our appetizer. Our mains showed up shortly after that - well before we were finished our appy. We were asked about dessert while most of our table was away in the bathroom. I mentioned we had a birthday and the waitress said she’d bring a lava cake (which again was much appreciated!). But she never took other dessert orders and didn’t ask if we wanted another drink (we did!). We had to wave her down to do so. It really felt like we were being rushed out (likely because we had two toddlers with us). We would have stayed after the toddlers left to have another drink or two had we felt more welcome. As it was, we paid up and left. A bit disappointing overall. And pretty expensive for what you get, though I guess that is par for the area.
The first time we had great service, the 2nd Time not so much. Both Friday pm. The musicians were great & asked for songs by request. We requested one and Michael said we can do that, then they never did it. We were a. It frustrated to wait and never hear it. That part was disappointing.
The view was amazing. The restaurant was so wonderful in the setting it is in. It is between two resorts but is a stand alone. In Princeville you must try but make reservations.
Suzanne , our bartender, was kind and knew how to poor a drink! We look forward to seeing her again this week. The bar is open air and has beautiful views of the neighboring resort and the bay.
