Seafood
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.

Got there 15 mins early but was seated 15 mins after my reservation. Steak was undercooked and all side items for my whole party were cold.

Mandy was an absolutely awesome server—very attentive and friendly. Kudos for a job well done. The seafood duo consisting of monchong in a teriyaki miso glaze, and swordfish in an herb buerre blanc sauce was outstanding. The monchong prepared Keoki’s way was also quite good. Cheeseburger sliders for the keiki’s were a popular choice. The hula pie presented complimentary to our 7 year old granddaughter for her birthday was enjoyed by all.

DELICIOUS food and great happy hour deals! The restaurant itself is also absolutely gorgeous, you sit surrounded by koi fish, waterfalls, flowers, and trees. The live music is also wonderful. Worth every penny (maybe even more after the great deals) in beauty and taste. If you are in Kauai you have to try it!

Always enjoy. The only criticism is that they are never on time with the reservation. We arrive 5 minutes before the reserved time and wait 15 minutes or so for the table. 10 minutes past the time, if happened occasionally, would not be bad....but every time looks like a pattern. Getting past that, the food is excellent and the wait staff very good, but stretched a little thin. The servers don’t have enough time to spend at each of the tables they are responsible for. The ambiance is excellent and we always have a good time...will be back.

We had a lovely early dinner. Got there at 5:15 and tried the tasting menu (available from 4:45-5:30). We were lucky enough to get mahi mahi made two different ways for me and my boyfriend. Great food, great wine, great cocktails, and great value. Loved the ambiance. Service by Jason was also spot on. Mahalo!

The first time we came for dinner I thought it was great. So we booked a romantic dinner for Valentine’s Day. It was not so good. The waitress we had just could not be more inattentive. Having to ask twice for a drink was the start of the night. Everything else was just ok.

We continue to enjoy celebrating special occasions in Keoki’s. Our server, Tony, always makes our visit memorable. This Valentine’s Day me and my husband brought my Mother here for dinner and Tony made my Mom feel so welcome. My Mom is very impressed by the food and the service that Tony provided to us. My filet mignon is delicious, Mom’s risotto perfect and my husband’s prime rib continues to be the best. The hula pie was pure decadence. We will be back soon ♥️

We were a group of 12 and we all had great food this year. Recommend the calamari, coconut shrimp, seafood risotto and prime rib. Their famous Hula Pie shouldn’t be missed. Also, lovely Hawaiian decor that you get nowhere else in Poipu. Great service this year as well. Mahalo!

We enjoyed a delicious dinner of excellent salads and fresh fish, well prepared and seasoned. Our server was attentive and friendly , describing the menu and the various preparation well. Only drawbacks were an overly sweet, yet weak margarita and a very cold table right next to the outdoors on a cold rainy night in February. We do plan to return, however, for the delicious native seafood.

Loved the food and our server, Mara, was excellent! We were away from the road, on an inside booth, so the noise level was not bad. (My husband has trouble with background noise and had no complaints. So five stars. 😊) very reasonably priced and a walk away from our condo. Highly recommend!!!

Even though we were staying up in Princeville, we made sure to make a trip to Poipu and dinner at Keoki's. The Barefoot Bar is fun, but we love dinner in the restaurant side. First- instead of regular bread before your meal, they bring the most delicious pineapple carrot muffins. Amost like dessert! My husband ordered the mac nut and panko crusted fresh catch (Monchong) and I had the seafood rissotto. Both were delicious. The rissotto is rich with so much seafood in it- I could easily get 3 meals from that one dish (especially if I have a couple of muffins first!). What made the evening fun was our server. We've had him for past visits. His name is Jeff, and he's terrific- friendly, funny, helpful and great service! Can't wait to return!

Busy corner w TVs scattered throughout the restaurant made for a loud crowd. We had dinner but no alcohol which seemed to irritate the server. After that service was a bit too brisk and twice brought the wrong order to the table. Probably wouldn't go back.

Keoki's paradise was a pleasant surprise. I was hesitant to eat here but the reviews lead me to make a reservation for a family dinner. Not only did they have our table ready at the appointed time but they had us near the side and back of the restaurant (we had three kids with us-can I get an AMEN). The drinks were unique and delicious, the food was island inspired and well prepared and the service was MUCH better than excellent. The waiter did many things on his own accord to keep my children occupied (wiki stix, cups of cherries, jokes), not to mention the atmosphere inside and the live music were added bonuses. Highly recommend.
