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.

Our server forgot about us throughout the night. The table next to us ordered right before us and had their food and finished eating with plates cleared before we even got our food, which was 1/2 cold when we finally got it. The food was good, but would have been better if we got it when it was hot. The ambiance is great and the live music was nice, not sure we would go back though.

Food was pretty mediocre. My husband’s fish was way over-cooked and inedible. Thankfully the server took it off our bill. My sons mashed potatoes were cold. And the calamari was...strange. I’d never seen calamari pieces that weird and cut so thickly. They were not good.

When we go to Maui our favorite restaurant is Leilani’s at Whaler’s Village. We didn’t know about Keoki’s until the owner of the Shrimp Station told us it was her favorite restaurant. I pulled up the web info and saw it was owned by the same company as Leilani’s....We had to try it. It is now our go to restaurant in the Poipu area.....

I never write reviews for restaurants, but I am going to make an exception for Keoki's! We ate here twice during our week-long vacation, and both times the food and service were amazing. They were very friendly with our toddler as well. One night a live band played local music, which created a great ambiance. Definitely recommend!

We’ve eaten here often and the food is usually quite good. Last time was an exception and our expectations were not met. But this time it was back to usual. The spinach dip was really good and the fish dishes were tasty. Hula pie is a necessity.

I travel to many places, but Keoki's Paradise is special. It's a terrific happy hour and beautiful dinner spot near Poipu Beach. The staff was very friendly and accommodating when we requested a last minute change to our reservation. Appetizers (pupus) are excellent. In the bar, the pork sliders and prime rib bones were crazy good. In the dining room, the panko and macadamia nut ahi was prepared perfectly and delicious. A very chill guitarist and hula dancer added to the dinner experience. Overall this was a wonderful evening for my family; we will definitely return. A+ rating.

We went early to take advantage of the Chefs Pick. Plenty of good food. We have fined at Keokis in the past, so we knew we would love it. We did. Delicious food. We enjoyed the live music too.

I think the portions were small. Very few options for vegetarians and absolutely no options for vegans. However, what I could eat was lovely. (A salad without cheese.) The live music was great. Servers are very attentive.

It wasn’t as good this time as the time I went there last year. The fish was slightly over cooked and dry. The crab cakes were very good and the hula pie was great, as usual. Service was a bit off too. There was a long delay before ordering and our waiter never came back to ask how everything was.

Lovely restaurant with Hawaiian atmosphere, conveniently located to our hotel. Loved the bar area, the drinks, food and service. The dining area we can say was “ good” but not great because we felt sandwiched between families with lots of children while looking for a more adult experience.

Last night was our first time visiting there.
Our waiter was pleasant but we didn’t understand why he took food and drink orders from couple who came in after us.
Eventually (15 min after arrival) he took our order but our drinks came out 35 min after the orders was finally placed. Drinks came after our salads were half gone which we refused. They got comped and we enjoyed them.
Long story short, waiter had injured himself and the bar was totally behind schedule which made no sense.
But the waiter tried his best and the food was delicious so all good.
