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.

We went there for our Honeymoon and we were disappointed. My wife's risotto was extremely salty and she couldn't even eat it. Not to mention, the appetizer we were recommend by our waiter of the calamari was very chewy and not flavorful at all.. let's just say if you're visiting the island of Kauai, there are way better quality restaurants to spend your money to eat!

We waited over 1/2 hour to order! We had reservation and the host was wonderful and we got to your restaurant early and was seated 5 min early.

Since we were early, we went to the bar and order a drink and had your wonderful calamari. The bar tender get a 10 rating- wonderful and bought the calamari over to our table personally! Our waitress wasn’t very nice

Overall, we still love your place!

A great way to experience outdoor dining with family. The ambiance feels very Hawaiian in a stereotypical way that is fun to experience with family when traveling. We always have our first dinner here when visiting. Although the food isn’t my favorite it’s good and the ambiance brings me back.

Tried several other T S restaurants and was disappointed by this one. Expensive for just an average meal. Slow service it seemed like the waitress had way too many tables to cover. Mai tai tasted watered down.

We have gone to Keoki's beach of the 4 times we have been to Kauai. The outdoor scenery is beautiful with lush greenery, small waterfalls, and huge trees. The food has always been good from burgers to seafood and steaks. You will always want to have the hula pie at least once while in Kauai, a vanilla ice cream, crushed oreo crust drizzled with chocolate sauce--yummy!

My cousins recommended eating here. We had their prime rib and seafood risotto. We would definitely go back. Our server was very nice and attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. It's a large restaurant with live music so it was a bit loud, but that didn't bother us. Good for larger parties.

We came for dinner. We had a great table, the atmosphere is awesome. A little noisy in our area with many large parties. Our dinners were very good and the hula pie, SPECTACULAR! We would come back anytime we visit the island again and we would totally recommend to friends.

We didn’t have a pleasant experience at Keoki’s Paradise. We arrived early to our reservation and ordered drinks at the bar. The drinks were watered down, didn’t taste well and we couldn’t tell if they had alcohol. We were seated and were approached by the staff about 15 minutes after being seated. We ordered the shrimp appetizer and later our server returned and asked if we wanted to order drinks and I replied I’ll consider it when we have the appetizer. We ordered the entrees, still not having our appetizer. Other tables were being served and the restaurant was emptying. We then waited until 8:55 (reservation was 7:45) was not able to flag down a server and so we went to the front desk and told them we were leaving.

I would not recommend ordering alcohol from Keoki’s unless it’s in a bottle or in a can. I would not recommend this place either, if you do best of luck on being served. They are part of a company that includes Dukes and we had much better results there.

Visited Kauai the week of our 20th anniversary, when we also dined @Keoki’s! :-) We’ve been back to dine pretty much every time on the several occasions we’ve visited Kauai over 20 years.

It’s a place that’s good for any (casual) night or a special occasion, which is great.

Beautiful atmosphere with lots of water features, live music and dancer. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We got the crab cake appetizer and loved it. I loved their mocktail selection- the soda water gives nice bubbles so it wasn't all sugary juice and it had great flavor. My husband got the keiko style ono fish and it was delicious! We added shrimp and loved that too- all the sauces on the plate were fantastic. I got the filet mignon, which was pretty good but I wish I had gotten fish. We shared the specialty hula pie (which was way too much for two people and couldn't finish it) but damn it was good and we don't regret it! Overall a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend and come back!

Great waiter (Geoff). Location convenient and inside was nice with gardens (that could use some refreshing). Live music is always a plus for me.

Food was disappointing. Seafood risotto was terrible disappoint - a half of a small lobster tail and literally 2 smallish shrimp was all the seafood to be found. The crusted fish was a disappointment, not sure what type of fish it was. I ate it but I didn’t enjoy it.

Drinks were typical- too small if you ask me.

Hula pie - always something we look forward to when we plan our trip to the islands.

Can see us going back.
