First dinner on the island while staying at the Grand Hyatt was at Tidepools. Had the Poke and then the Ahi. Both very different and some great tastes. Got to talk with Chef Kevin and had a great conversation about the tastes of the Ahi...More

Tidepools at the Grand Hyatt is a fine dining experience. This is an open air environment totally surrounded by a pool full of fish that provide great entertainment. The menu is full of local items.

Every time were on Kauai we make sure to visit Tidepools. Nice ambiance. Service is solid. Fish plates are always great. Make sure to request a table waterside so you can watch the koi fish swim by.

Romantic, check. Good food, check. Beautiful location, check. Fresh fish, check. Check, expensive. Yes, bring your wife here for a celebratory dinner. Free lava cake to end the meal. Tip; ask for a waterside table (its worth waiting for).

We made early reservations, so we scored a great table. Food was ridiculously good. Service was excellent. The hotel property is beautiful, too. So worth the trip and the money!

Way overpriced for standard hotel food. Service was great but food was mediocre at best. Drinks were weak, desert menu for being in Hawaii was lame, entree was nothing more than ok. I wouldn't recommend for the price. There are many other restaurants that do...More

Embrace the tempting combination of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine served in a unique Hawaiian setting. Thatched-roof bungalows float above a koi-filled lagoon at the base of a waterfall to create romantic ambiance. Inspired by local ingredients and the rich culinary traditions of Hawaii
