We spent a long morning in Hanalei and ended up here for lunch. The fresh fish sandwich was tasty and well cooked. Good fries too. We shared some Kauai pie - save room for this. There was intermittent rain the day we were there so it was pretty crowded and the service was a little slow (but very friendly). But,... More

We were able to arrive at Hanalei Gourmet just as they were switching from lunch to "happy hour"/dinner. It was fun to watch the servers switch over and watch the new items being written up on the ginormous menu on the wall. The location is perfect!! The old Hanalei Schoolhouse is a charming place to eat and shop! The service... More

After a long day of hiking on the Kalalau Trail, we stopped in here on the advice of a guide book. It was one of my favorite meals on the island! Our service was outstanding - our water never emptied, everything was timed nicely, and our waitress gave us some great recommendations. We really loved everything we tasted, and I... More

Our last night in Kauia was spent at Hanalei Gourmet - we were glad we did. A very busy restaurant - we were lucky to get an outside table immediately - which meant no alcohol, but with an early flight the next morning we could not wait longer. My husband's steak was huge which he enjoyed. My macadamia fried chicken... More

We made two visits in on day here. The first was for cocktails and snacks and the second for a light dinner. It’s a good place to have a drink and watch a game on TV. The service is very friendly and pours are generous. We have the deep fried artichoke hearts with ranch dressing (what more do you need... More

An interesting, cute shopping and restaurant area on the highway in Hanalei. Good selection of sandwiches, salads, fish etc. Prices are reasonable, fast and attentive service. Lunch can even be packed picnic style to take to the beach. Check it out for a quick lunch.

We stopped here for lunch after hours of hiking. The whole complex is great, with little shops, cafes and restaurants. We had the fish and chips and the fresh fish sandwich. Both were terrific. And for $15 (fish was local caught and fresh that day) really good value too. Washed down with a couple of beers and it was the... More

Went here for an early dinner and it was a really fun atmosphere! The World Series game was on and the banter going on between the locals at the bar was entertaining. We ate early enough that we got to take advantage of happy hour and early bird specials. The food is pricey. I got the fish and chips and... More

Good service, tasty Caesar salad, unsure on the burnt garlic flavour. I added chicken on mine. It was a good meal in the end. Recommended

Thank Jacopo R
