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 to Keoki’s for our 25th Wedding Anniversary after it was recommended by someone.
As soon as we walked through the doors we were impressed with the ambiance and staff. My wife had the lobster and I had the filet mignon, both were exceptional. Of course we finished it off with a slice of Hula Pie.

It was so good we went back two days later, this time with us both have different fish dinners. Both were delicious and prepared to perfection. The staff was again professional and very attentive but not bothersome.

Overall an exceptional dining experience.

Limited options on the area. GF wanted prime rib so we went here. Prime was ok, bit under done.
I had the opah, and got it breaded/Mac nut style as it was the recommendation. Probably should have gone with the traditional keoki butter. Breaded and fried was a bit over fried making it taste like a fish stick, not a special seasonal fish of the tropics.

Food - a bit above average but not great. Nice entertainment with dinner. Our server was a grouch - not typical of KEOKI'S - should be working elswhere. Hukla pie dessert is always outstanding.

We dined here the first night and the last night on Kauai. Food was great and service was excellent. I recommend the stronger Vintage '44 over their regular Mai Tai which was too sweet for me.

You will love this place. We we're here 5 years ago and returned on our recent visit to Kuaui. Even though we we're staying on the East side of the island we made the trek to enjoy it again. The atmosphere is very much Hawaii with the waterfalls and lighting. The food is amazing and cooked perfectly. The fish is fresh and don't forget the crab cakes.

We went here two nights of our Kauai trip. The first night we ate in the bar. The food was good and the service was good. We went back a couple of nights later and ate in the main dining room. Our server (Brenna) was outstanding. The food was excellent (I had the fish duo and my husband had the macadamia nut crusted fish). This restaurant has excellent food and service at great prices. If we were staying here more than another day, we would go back at least one more time.

Keoki’s has always been one of our favorite restaurants on Kauai. Our past visit that was not the case. I do t think the restaurant was staffed for it to be as busy as it was. My husband’s food came out great, mine came out cold. Our server brought me new food, however my stomach was already turned from my initial plate. Our server tried hard, however the happiness of the rest of the team there was completely gone.

Loved this place- best meal on our trip. Atmosphere was great- loved the sheltered outdoor seating with views of lush tropical flowers, creek and tiki torches. Service was great, and the food was exceptional (had a beet salad and one of the fish dishes, husband had a teriyaki chicken and beef dish. I understand they often have hula during dinner, but this evening it was live musicians that we enjoyed. A lady was selling beautiful, fragrant plumeria leis which added an extra special touch to the evening. Thoroughly enjoyable experience .

This is a great place for large parties. We had 11 with a reservation and they got us in on time. It’s a large restaurant so they can accommodate large groups. Everyone enjoyed their dish from the fish to the ribs. This was our second time here, so we obviously enjoyed our first visit. Recommended.
