The most romantic setting on Kauai. For the ultimate in ambiance, delectable food and stellar service, Tidepools is the place. This quintessential Hawaiian setting has a backdrop of waterfalls with thatched roof bungalows that seemingly float above tropical lagoons. Savor contemporary Hawaiian style cuisine in this distinctive open-air setting. Diners rave about the exceptional service and fresh fish and steak options with a unique island flair including macadamia nut crusted mahimahi, grilled opah or a succulent steak. Salads feature greens grown at our hydroponic farm on site and the desserts are luscious. Don't miss this delightful experience.

This is our favourite romantic restaurant on Kauai, we make sure we go at least once while on the island. The service was amazing Derek was very attenative without being a nuance. The ambiance is also amazing . We go for our anniversary we make a point of letting them know. They always put us in a quieter area. The food was good my husband raved about his steak how amazing it was. I had the catching of the day it was good as well. The portions are decent. Truly recommend this restaurant to anyone❤️

It was very romantic and delicious food for our 41st anniversary. I particularly enjoyed the vegetables from their own hydroponic garden. My husband particularly enjoyed the macadamia crusted mahi mahi.

We loved the setting! The fish was incredibly fresh and everything was delicious. Derek was great at guiding us through the menu and helping us with a wine selection to accompany everything. We loved watching the koi fish cruise around picking up scraps from kids.

Up there in the top meal I have had on any of the Hawaiian Islands. Beautiful setting, fabulous food and service. Fish exquisite with fabulous flavors.
Had dinner there Sunday night and going back on Wednesday!
A must place to eat if you are in Kauai!

The atmosphere is lovely, the food was very good, and the service was fantastic. I feel like it is slightly too expensive for what it is, but that is probably just a result of it being at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai. That said, I'd recommend it, and would likely go back next time I go to Kauai.

Just like our first visit to Tidepools, after our wedding two years ago, this visit was amazing. Clark and his team who helped us were awesome and courteous. The food was absolutely awesome. Highly recommend Tidepools!

Les is the best! He's been at the Tidepool for 28 years, yes he started when he was 10. He was very knowledgeable and guided us all the way, including samples of things we weren't entirely sure of (think Costco). The food is good to above average, but the service and ambience pull it's rating to a 4+.

Excellent food, beautiful setting. Unfortunately our waiter seemed to be having a bad day and brought nothing other than bare minimum of service to the experience. Other servers were much more engaged so it’s not a trend but simply and unfortunate outlier for the two of us who were eager to celebrate our anniversary.

Everyone has always enjoyed their meal and we all order different things without ever being disappointed. It has always been a joy eating there for the last 10 years. Thank you Grand Hyatt!

Is pitched as the “best romantic restaurant in Kauai”. We made reservations for 8 PM and the restaurant was packed with mostly families with small children.

The seating by the water over The Koi ponds was nice but the service is “island service” with no real sense of timing.

Food was OK but the menu is limited.

The staff treated us so nice from the moment we arrived. We took our 3 children here to share with them a special place that we had our wedding dinner last year; and too have a Christmas dinner this year with them. Outstanding food once again and we will make sure and book a table next year when we visit the island again. Special thanks to Douglas, our server for making our evening so enjoyable.

This was a perfect venue for a family New Year's Day dinner. Helpful and friendly waitstaff, delicious food, beautiful décor, perfect table by an open window with sunset view overlooking a pond with giant fish to watch. We especially liked the nutritious and appealing keiki menu, the best we've ever seen. And just a 2 minute drive from our house! Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful visit. We have been here in the past, and our recent visit lived up to our great memories. Les is a talented, excellent server. The snapper was amazing. The wine was great. The fish were such fun to watch. I could go on and on. The ambience was the highlight of our vacation.
