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 happy hour and live music. The chefs tasting menu is fantastic. Spring rolls are tasty and the fish delish. You can order a hula pie and take desert home. Tony is a fantastic server. So is Emily at the bamboo bar.

Food was great as usual. Our server Noelani was exceptional. Very sweet and attentive to put every need or want. My daughter celebrated her 20th birthday and it was a very memorable experience

Even though there was a large line of people waiting out front our Open Table reservation had us at our table right on time.

This is a unique open air setting that is popular with both locals and vacationers. They have live music but it is more subdued so you can still carry on a conversation.

The specialty is whatever the fresh local catch is prepared in different ways. I was very impressed with the quality of the preparations in addition to the size of the portions.

If you are into desserts then save room for the Hula Pie. It is huge and suitable for sharing. We ate one between 4 of us and it was plenty.

We took visitors to Keoki's for dinner, figuring they would enjoy the tropical atmosphere. They did. They also enjoyed the food and drinks. Service was very good.

If only the food were as pleasant as our server, Jesse. We were there for the early prix fix dinner. The spring roll appetizers had excellent crispy outer wrap but the content could best be described a “mushy”. My opah was over-cooked. Would consider returning but only if ordered off regular menu.

Met a couple of friends from the mainland there for dinner. Had a few beers and dinner - we all had fish. Very nice. Been there many times. Nice place to bring visitors.

There were 4 of us for dinner. We decided to get reservations - the lineups can be long. Had drinks in the bar - staff were courteous and friendly without being intrusive. Drinks were delicious. Seating areas are surrounded by the lush greenery of the area. You feel as though you are eating in a garden. Torches get lit at dusk; very romantic. Our waiter was friendly and happy to answer questions; and happy to find the information if he didn't have it at his fingertips. Food was fabulous. Entertainment was lovely; included a hula dancer. We love this place and have at least one meal here every time we come to Kaua'i.

This is our eighth time on Kauai, and for all of those years, our favorite restaurant for dining has been Keoki’s. We especially enjoy the tasting combination because it provides a fine menu from which to choose, and the portions are quite generous. We will continue dining at Keoki’s in the future.

After 16 hours of travel, we went to Keoki’s to start our vacation.
Our server, Roger, was personable and knowledgeable.
My husband had the opah and I had the mahi-mahi. Both excellent!
Love this place with its “tiki hut” feel and Hawaiian kitsch.

We love our visits to Keoke's and always visit when we are in Poipu and when we have guests.

Beautiful garden setting. The staff is friendly and professional. We went back two nights in a row for the chef's tasting menu. The food was cooked perfectly and the presentation is very good. A great place to relax in the evening after a day in the sun.
