We all felt like the food was only sub par for the price. Ribs and coconut prawns were amazing as starters but the entrees were blah. Swordfish sandwiches lacked flavor. Ramen bowls were $24 but neither of us ate the pork as it was rubbery and tough and the broth needed seasoning. The burger was yummy, we all should have ordered that. Basically too expensive for the quality.

The food at Holoholo grill is so delicious! We had breakfast there and everything was amazing! Be sure to try the green smoothie! It’s delicious! Service was a bit slow but then again this is Hawai’i and I’m from the east coast where everyone is in a rush! I will definitely return to and highly recommend Holoholo Grill!!

We found this place on Open Table and reviewed the menu. We opted to visit based on the pictures provided of the food and dining area. It was myself and my husband my two teenage kids and one teenage friend. My husband and I had the burger, my daughter had the blue cheese salad, and the friend had the caprese flatbread and my son had the Asian bowl. Everything was good except the Asian bowl which they comped from the ticket even though we didn’t ask them too. The dining room is outside so be careful of rain. Our server wasn’t very friendly but the hostess and the manager were very nice. Overall it was good food and acceptable prices.

My eggs were not cooked correctly so sent back. Still not good. Toast and potatoes not great. Would not order again. The server tried to make it right by giving me a juice.
We also tried a club sandwich for lunch. Waited a long time for a club sandwich. It was also not very good. Server was good.
The drinks are fine, but not impressed with the food which is too bad since the restaurant is on the property. We much preferred La Spezia and Paco’s Tacos.

The food is average “pub grub.” We went here because it was less expensive than the restaurants at the Hyatt. If you’re looking for a burger and a beer, this is not a bad choice. But it is by no means above average in my opinion. Wait staff very friendly!

We love HoloHolo Grill for a light (or heavy) meal. During summer reservations are a must. Pool side restaurant, casual and don't be surprised by dripping people in bathing suits walking through the tables to the bar! Be prepared for a somewhat limited menu, but all the basics are covered. Wish they would bring back the Mediterranean flat bread. . .

The restaurant was advertised as affiliated with Sam Choy so we thought it would be worth a try. The setting was unexceptional ( think pool bar) with uninspired food to match. The coconut shrimp were over done and the fish under done . Defiantly not worth the trip.

Was so pleasantly surprised, since this is a poolside restaurant. Actually a lot nicer than most and the food definitely better. We went for dinner and it was fairly quiet. Most people had left the pool and also it’s far enough from the main pool. The coconut curry mahi was awesome as were the sticky ribs, which we split as an appetizer (nice portion, could be a meal alone). We ended up taking the fish and half my husband’s burger (he raves about it) home. Our server Tiare was super friendly and helpful. Brought Lava cake as a treat, which we happily ate, even though we were stuffed (were celebrating my retirement & upcoming 25 year wedding anniversary). We ate at other restaurants in the area, but this was our best experience. Not fine dining but lovely outdoor restaurant with great service & food in Poipu.

This is a very low-key spot in a large condo complex. It's not fancy at all and is situated next to their pool with water falls, etc. The menu is varied and, although the waiter didn't tell us they had fish specials, we found items to order. I wish I had known about the specials. But the food was good. I had Poke which was an appetizer and the right size for me. Boyfriend had chicken sandwich and he said it was fine. Nothing special but fine. Waiter was very friendly. It's hard to find places on Kauai that aren't really expensive with intricate menus. Holoholo Grill was fairly priced with good menu

The hotel sells this grill as having a James Beard award winning chef, yet the food was mediocre and the ambiance non-existent. It’s a giant open air room with a cement floor and white/blue walls. It’s a hotel poolside bar at best....very disappointing. It would have been fine if sold as is, a poolside bar, but don’t oversell it to be more than it is.

The menu is extensive, the drinks are excellent and the service was perfect. We were staying on the premises and this was a perfect solution on our first day as we had not yet gone shopping. It is also the food and drink choice when using the pool at Koala Landing. Very good quality especially for a vendor who has a monopoly.

Food was excellent. Highly recommended for light dinner. We had spicy sashimi, crab cakes and waygu beef burger
Sherbet dessert was so so.

One "criticism" we had was the difficulty finding the place. It's off Poipu Road but the signage is terrible. It would. help if the directions on their website indicated which resort it was in.

Food was delicious but overpriced for the tiny amount received. OpenTable listed “Business Casual” yet it was a pool-side restaurant where all attire was welcomed. We were thinking it was slightly higher end than what we got, atmosphere-wise.

For the prices, I expect a more than you get at the Holoholo grill. The service was forgettable. The food is good, not great. The soft drink prices are offensive. Options for gluten free diners are extremely limited as well. Diners should expect more from a high-end resort in this location.

Don’t judge a book by its cover. It’s outdoors, covered, and in the rear of a condo complex - but that’s better than ok. The reviews were good, and the photos implied an indoor restaurant. We were all dressed up for dinner on Valentines Day. It was rainy when we arrived, so our first thought was to leave - but go where? Our waitress was very patient and kind. As it turned out, this is a hidden gem. Locals come here and really enjoy it. Dinner was delicious, service was excellent. We recommend it.
