"Dined twice- both times alone (in Kauai on business). First night all was excellent. 2nd time, was seated promptly but waited 15 minutes and finally had to ask maitre'd if I could please have waitstaff come to my table for service as I was rather hungry. Beautiful ambiance with harpist and glorious views but would recommend to be at least a party of two."See more
"So happy that we chose Kukui’s to have a reunion with friends. We were greeted and seated by the sweetest hostess. We had the breakfast buffet and our waitress and servers tended to us with the most pleasant service and they were on point!
Beautiful weather made it exceptionally pleasant with our outdoor seating.
Love Kukuis!"See more
"We had a lovely evening. My husband had the chicken and waffles special which he enjoyed and was a great deal. I had cream of broccoli soup which was the best I’ve ever had and the hearts of palms salad which was also delicious. Service was great and the view spectacular. We will be back again before it’s time to go home."See more
"Naupaka Terrace is at the Kauai Beach Resort in Lihue on the Garden Island of Kauai. We each had delicious local fresh catch for our dinner prepared artistically beautifully. Emilio's expert service and recommendation was fantastic. We were very happy with Austins cheerful helpfulness. Thank you Chef Troy our dinner and dessert of warm lava cake completed our wonderful dinning experience. We highly recommend Naupaka Terrace for an excellent dinning experience with aloha."See more
"Outstanding location right on the water, we booked dinner for 4 of us at 6:15 PM in order to enjoy our last night on Kauai before taking the red-eye back to Seattle. The hostess seated us at the best available table, which was one of the BEST tables, front row right on the beach. Excellent Mai Tais and Martinis to start off, both made with fresh lillikoi juice. This restaraunt offers a couple options for daily catch served two or three different ways, all excellent (we tried three). One member of our party went for a boneless beef short rib, which was truly amazingly prepared. We haven't sampled too many fine dining establishments on Kauai, but I would say this restaurant compares favorably to some of the best we have had on other islands, such as Merriman's or Mama's Fish House on Maui, which are both at a significantly different (higher) price class. Overall great food and truly an excellent value for water view dining on Kauai."See more
