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.

We always include this, usually more than once, on our visits to Kauai. Beginning with Kimberly, the manager, and continuing throughout the entire staff, it is an outstanding experience. In particular, Kasey, our server was extremely professional, personable and attentive to our every need. The food is consistently great and the atmosphere is one of the best on the island. Highly recommended.

Great restaurant with with wonderful ambiance. Live music was at just the right volume- although our table was away from stage. The Parmesan macadamia nut encrusted fish was amazing. And the rice pilaf had a great flavor - different than any I’ve had in the past. Dinner was expensive, but that seems to be true everywhere in Kauai. Keoki’s Paradise was well worth the expense.

I was there with my spouse and his family who were visiting from Japan. The waitress was very patient in allowing time for the menu to be translated by my spouse because his family speaks not a word of English. In the meantime, we ordered drinks, which came quickly. When we ordered, again, the waitress was very patient in taking the order with all of the special requests of not too well done, not too raw, etc., etc., etc. When the food came, it was beautiful to look at and we devoured it. I've never had such good fish, never!

Another great dining experience at Keoki’s in Poipu. The macadamia nut encrusted Monchong was amazing as always. Keoki’s has been our favorite restaurant on Kauai for 22 years. Incredible Hula pixie although they should bring back the Akon’s coffee version

Our second time in dining room was much better than our first thanks in a large part to our excellent server, Kevin. He was very friendly, courteous, informative and attentive. He helped make our experience at Keoki's that much more enjoyable. Of course, the food was also very good. We always enjoy the famous hula pie even though it has shrunk in size (smaller slice).

I was pretty disappointed with this restaurant. My wife and I were celebrating our honeymoon and decided to give this restaurant a shot. It took 20 min for me to receive my drink and the waiter would disappear for long periods of time. We had to flag another waitress down and ask her if she can get our waiter. The food was average at best but the service is what stood out to me.
