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.

We had drinks and apps only. Steak frites were excellent. Ahi tuna slightly above average

We celebrated our 25th anniversary and had a date night at Tidepools. It was beautiful and comfortable but my only disappointment was that the food was too expensive for the entrees provided. I ordered the prime rib and my husband ordered the lobster, shrimp, scallop and catch of the day. We each had a cocktail and it cost $133. The food was good not great. I was expecting the food to look as amazing as the restaurant and it was just okay. I won’t go back but I’m glad we went. Of course there’s always the other patrons that don’t have any respect for others by talking too loud or FaceTime ing while walking around the restaurant, with their phone on speaker. People need to learn some control with their phones now days and just respect others. The service was wonderful, very attentive and fast.

We have been to Tidepools a dozen times over the years and are hopeful this was simply an off night. Past experiences have been positive overall. This year food was memorable in an unfortunate way and service, while friendly, wasn’t careful. My husband’s dinner was not done as requested and served tepid. My vegetarian dish was a bowl of rice topped with a few vegetables; not very inspiring. We will try again in a later visit but aren’t excited to return again soon.

Our server Robert was fantastic. And Doug the manager stopped over to the table to say hi and connect with our group. Absolutely wonderful. Tidepools is in the top 3 restaurant experiences we have ever had.

Went for our anniversary as special occasion and very disappointed. Mediocre meal for >$300. Table was way too high for the chairs so hard to sit comfortably and eat. Service was nice but slow. Food very so-so. Opah fish dry and my husband’s filet over cooked. When server asked me about meal I told her ok (3.5 out of 5) they comped dessert. Must have misread menu - thought we were getting meringues and got bag of donuts. Glad we weren’t paying for them. Comparable cost to St. Regis Princeville which delivers a way better meal and experiences overall.

Food and service were excellent - the wind and waterfall noise were a bit much for a pleasant dinner for two.
