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.

Most of it was good. He got the fish duo which was tasty. I got the chicken filet duo which was good, but get the sauce on the side as it’s too salty. The banana coconut pie wasn’t worth the calories or price as it was way too dense (nothing cream about it. Nor was there any whipped cream . Should have gone for the ice cream pie.
Would do again just don’t get that dessert

We have been to Kauai 17 or 18 times and in any given week never failed to eat at Keoki's at least 2 or 3 times. Great food, great ambience at a good value.

Once again Keoki's made us leave happy and beyond taken care of! We've been coming to the island since the 80's and absolutely stop in several times throughout our stay. Besides the Hula pie, live music and Hula, Tony who has been our waiter for 10 plus years is amazing! Keoki's is Ohana, Mahalo!

Our meal was beautifully prepared and presented. I really appreciated the extra guidance our waiter gave when considering what choices would be best for a gluten free and dairy free meal.

Unfortunately very poor service (greeter has found it more important to get her pay check than greeting customers). Appetizer came straight with the main course. Food was okay (fish is fresh though, so recommend the fish plates, but risotto was disappointing). Ambiance is nice. Won’t recommend this restaurant.

If you don’t mind paying for the ambiance of it all, then go! It’s a beautiful place.. the food used to be good, but now it seems tasteless, overpriced, and not fresh. None of our three meals were good. Service was great and house wine was not appealing.

The food was excellent, the ambiance was light and airy and made us forget there was a highway on the other side of the garden. Our server, Jeff, was well informed, fun, and efficient. Lovely experience. Made another reservation for later in the week.

We dine here every time we visit Kauai. This was by far the best meal we have eaten over the past 15 years here or in any other restaurant. We started with the juicy, grilled Thai shrimp with a sweet guava sauce. We had the special fish for our entrees that’s not often available because of fishing restrictions (lehe or laenihi?) in the ginger cilantro presentation. The fish was cooked perfectly. Our whole table ordered the same dish and was delighted and impressed with the choice. The lemongrass bamboo rice and mixed vegetables were lovely complements. There was nothing left on our plates! Our 4.5 year old very much enjoyed his creamy Mac and cheese from the children’s menu. He even ate a few of the green beans; I enjoyed the rest of them. We ended with the Hula Pie. It was delicious as ever, maybe a little smaller portion than in prior years, but still a fine size to share. Keoki’s has always been lovely. With the live music and excellent cuisine and service, we will continue to come back. We always wonder why we don’t dine here more than once a trip!

We really enjoyed Keoki’s Paradise, the whole evening was wonderful, the food, service, entertainment, setting. No complaints. Good value for money and a totally wonderful evening. If we visit this area again we will definitely come back and have already recommended the rest to others.

For a very crowded restaurant, it really wasn't that loud. We waited over an hour for our entrees because the ticket missed fired and when our food did come out the seafood risotto was incredibly salty and some of the fish did not taste fresh. However, my husband greatly enjoyed his fish Duo. The hula pie almost made up for the bad risotto, almost. Kitschy and touristy but good for families.

We had the loveliest time-by far our best meal our entire trip. We couldn’t believe the options and the associated prices. It will be our restaurant of choice from now on.

10 days in Hawaii and of the 6 top rated restaurants we visited, the meal at Keoki's Paradise was most memorable. The tuna sashimi appetizer was outstanding. My fish was cooked to perfection with a light char on the outside. They must use a sous vide technique for cooking the fish and then finish on the grill because it was perfect. The plate is then drizzled with a sauce and you can choose to pick up as much as you like on each bite. The service and the facility are ok, but I was blown away by the fresh fish. I rate this as a do not miss!!! Enjoy

Fantastic find! We were in Kaua’i for our honeymoon and had an amazing experience! For starters, the ambiance of the restaurant was all we expected of Hawaii and more. Just gorgeous. The service was prompt and excellent with knowledgeable and kind waitress. The drinks were sooo delicious! My wife had a Poui Piña drink that was served in a pineapple- so cool!! In terms of the food, I don’t enjoy fish, and so I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and flavor of the chicken/steak teriyaki entree I had! But we also shared a grilled shrimp appetizer that was finger licking good! My wife had the macadamia encrusted fish (forget the name of it) and she was blown away by how authentic and fresh it was! And for dessert, for our honeymoon they treated us to a fabulous Hula Pie!!! Soooo good!! Love love loved this place!!
