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.

Keoki’s is always our final dining experience when we come to Kauai. It is a tradition for us. We like the relaxed, casual atmosphere. The food is very good and the service is always good. We had a reservation for 5 pm and we were glad as it was very busy. Had about a ten minute wait. The Hawaiian music entertainment is always a nice addition to the evening. Overall, a nice dinner out as usual.

A "must eat" here, especially if on the Poipu side of the island. Great fish...the four of us selected different "methods"; mine was the duo, baked...so good with swordfish and, you-cant-get-this-in -chicago, monchong! Dont forget to order a hulu pie and share it! Their attention to food allergies was notable!

Kevin the server was very nice and attentive. We arrived for the Chef's Table offering, which two of us enjoyed very much. The free music and hula starting at 5:15 was a nice treat.

My husband & I went to Keoki's for my birthday dinner while we were in Hawaii. I made the reservation online. When we arrived they seated us immediately at a table near the waterfall in view of the guitar player & hula dancer. Our waitress was very attentive. Food was wonderful! We even received a complimentary Hula Pie for dessert which was amazing! I could not have asked for a better birthday dinner! (My only complaint would be that the lighting directly above our table was very harsh, but this was not a huge deal.) If we are ever in Kauai again we will definitely make another visit to Keoki's!

Wonderful meal. Prime rib was super, the combo of 2 fish were each very tasty. We particularly enjoyed our waitress, she was genuine and helpful and made out experience even better. For Hawaii it was great value.

The calamari should be renamed to be squid rings. The service was very slow. The food is average at best. The atmosphere and live Hawaiian music was the best part of the experience.
