We returned for second evening in a row - simply knew it would be delicious and pleasant, so much better than hotel restaurants; better value, too!

Geoff took excellent care of us, and his recommendations were spot-on (he's been serving at Keoki's Paradise for 24 years, a testament to both his professionalism and the restaurant as an employer). Terry, our server from last evening, dropped by and it was so good to see her again - this is a special place.

The music was nice and during the musical break the waterfall near our table was perfect to set the mood. The hula pie was an outstanding dessert!

Great ambiance, fantastic live (Hawaiian flavor) music, great drink selection, wonderful fish dishes. Our server Terry was phenomenal - made us feel welcome, provided local insights, charming while self-effacing, unrushed but efficient - can't say enough good things about her! We will probably return this week because it was that good!

Love eating at Keoki's Paradise. We usually eat here at least twice while on vacation in Poipu. we have been coming to Keoki's for years and they never fail to make it a great experience. Make sure to leave room for Hula Pie.

Came for an early dinner during their tasting menu hours of 4:45-5:30pm. Chose the grilled shrimp appetizer and tasted the short rib bao (the better choice). Enjoyed my panko and mac nut hawaiian catch which was striped marlin that day. The chocolate creme brulee was a chocolate pudding bottom topped with a piece of peanut butter brittle. The semi-open ambiance and live music were the best parts of the restaurant. Chico and Da Other Guy were funny and played great music. Highly recommend this place.

My Fiancé and I just had the best dinner here.

We were celebrating our engagement and from the beginning things started off great. We had made reservations and when we got there the table had a placard that said celebration. The table location was great, we got a table with a view into their garden. The overall atmosphere was fantastic.

The Food was delicious. The Seafood Risotto was to die for and the Chef Duo Special was exquisite.

We had one minor issue toward the end of our meal but the staff resolved it quickly.

Lastly because we were celebrating we got a dessert on the house. It was a nice gesture and definitely made our night.

Will definitely come again and recommend for anyone staying at or near Poipu.

Food was very good and service was prompt. The kitchen was VERY slow sending food out. The bar service was also slow. Setting is lively and very tropical.

If you have a table near the water, be ready to watch cockroaches crawling by as you try to eat your dinner.

All seating is outdoors which is great. Service was attentive and fish was well prepared. But the cocktails were terrible. Either the bartender has no clue on mixing drinks or the well liquor used is just garbage. Either way, stay away from the cocktails.

Fish, salad and drinks were good. Veggie and rice sides were pretty sad - one piece of brocolli was actually yellow. Staff was courteous, our table felt private enough.

We celebrated Thanksgiving at Keoki's. The restaurant was full but we didn't feel rushed or crowded. Lovely background music and the atmosphere is really tropical and beautiful. It was even nicer than the pictures online. Scotty was our waiter, and he was very helpful in trying to find options for one picky eater in our group. Two of us got the Thanksgiving meal, and two ordered off the menu, and the food was very good. Thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at Keoki's.

My wife’s fish was overdone and not really edible. I had mahi mahi, which was good. The waiter didn’t charge us for her dish, which was nice of him.
The entertainment was good but the audio was poor and we couldn’t hear the guitar player’s voice when he described the music.

Our first time. No ocean view but the ambiance was still very tropical giving it a Hawaii feel with a casual atmosphere. I had the prime rib and cooked to perfection. My husband had the risotto and wanted to lick his plate. Highly recommend.

Keoki’s was great!! Food was awesome, we had the lobster tails and filet for dinner which was outstanding! Very flavorful and cooked to perfection. 👌🏻 We also got the crab cakes for an appetizer and they were delicious as well! Our waiter Tony was incredibly nice and very attentive. We were given a complimentary hula pie for It being our honeymoon and it was mouth wateringly amazing!! Tony gave us the salted caramel on the side to try with it and it was an awesome suggestion! Overall our entire experience was amazing. Thanks Keoki’s!!

Beautiful outdoor island atmosphere. Delicious food, entertainment and great service. Moderately priced for a resort area. Very fun place for adults or children. We always eat there while in Kauai. We ate there twice this trip once in the bay the other time in the dining room. Equally good!
