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.

Great atmosphere. Our server was very good. Wife had the chicken and beef tenderloin and the beef was very tender. I had the prime rib, it was excellent.

This was our first visit to Keoki's but it won't be our last! We had great service, excellent food, and the atmosphere was perfect! It was much larger inside than it looks from the outside and the waterfalls and open air made this a really special experience.

Group of 8 for a birthday. Great table in the restaurant. We just missed the hula show, but there was some live music playing (wasn't obtrusive to any conversation). Don't fill up on the fresh muffins, and save that room for dessert.

Catch of the day was excellent, as was the folks who had prime rib (generous portions). If you sit at the bar, you won't have access to the full menu, fyi.

As the celebrant, I was entitled to a free Hula Pie. Unfortunately there was a mix up, and no one (front of house) had alerted my waiter. When he found the mistake, he prepped me a to-go portion. Very hospitable. Will return next trip.

Keoki’s Paradise is a superb choice for a special meal in Kauai. A great setting of decks scattered around a pond and waterfall, live music, and wonderful staff going that extra mile to make it a great night. Food was very good and well priced for the standard of the meal, and we especially appreciated the great service in response to the request for gluten-free options.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and really enjoyed this restaurant. Trahn was our waiter and he was absolutely wonderful. He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and had about as much fun as we did. It was a distinct pleasure to be served by him.

The mahi-mahi Keoki style and the Chef’s fresh fish duo were both delicious, well-prepared and appropriately portioned to leave room for the big Hula pie dessert. My husband also liked the frozen mai-tai but it is over-the-top good with ice cream and you may want to avoid those calories if you also plan on trying the enormous Hula pie.

Food was good. Only complaint I had was around service. At one point our server spilt a beer and gave our guest another one, however didn’t comp the beer that he spilled, I just think it should have been taken care of. Other than that, this is a great location with a great ambiance!

Out server was very insightful and accommodating with the menu. He helped me piece together all the menu items I loved to create a meal I’d love with my food restrictions. The Ahi my husband order was delicious and I’d say you can’t go wrong with that staple dish.

We didn’t sit in the bar, but the live music and atmosphere seemed fun. We were in the dinning room which was much more romantic.

We visit Kauai at least 2 times a year and Keoki's is a must every time. There have been a few times when we have come with someone who has food allergies and the staff is always accommodating and go the extra mile to make sure everyone is well taken care of. We have never been disappointed with anything we have had on the menu. We have been there for the lunch, dinner, and happy hour menus. The hula pie is what I want for my birthday every year.
