Built for the owners of a sugar plantation in the early 1900s. The orchids garden must be seen to believe. Traditional Hawaiian cuisine

The positive is that the staff is very friendly. Unfortunately it ends there. The restaurant is surrounded by rental buildings with some blockage from the gardens. So the view is not much to look at. The gardens themselves are completely underwhelming and for some reason...More

We were staying at the Grand Hyatt and decided to eat here one evening. We loved the back story on the property and restaurant. The food was really good. We loved our waiter! Great choice for one of your evenings in Poipu!

We had a fine meal at the Plantation Gardens on our first night in the Poipu area. Walking distance from several hotels including the Castle, Sheraton, and Marriott. The grounds are just beautiful and the open-air dining lets you take it all in and relax....More

I don't think there is a children's menu per se. The food would suit any child who enjoys good quality food. It is a very quiet / "adult" style restaurant, so if you have boisterous small humans I'd recommend the Olympic... More

No, unfortunately they do not. The restaurant hours at 5:30pm-9:00pm. Out of everywhere we ate, by far our favorite dinner spot.

As the others have mentioned they can do a bigger group, just call them. You may want to ask to sit on the lanai or more inside, but still open air. Enjoy.

Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar is located in a beautifully restored plantation manor on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Dating back to the 1930's, the estate once served as the plantation manager's home for Hawaii's first sugar plantation, the Koloa plantation. Later, the estate was acquired by the Moir Family who built the world famous gardens that surround the restaurant. Our menu reflects the heritage of old plantation Hawaii, which celebrates the abundance and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Our fresh fish is caught daily by local fishermen in waters off Kauai. We use organically grown vegetables and herbs picked fresh on nearby farms and from our own gardens. Guests may choose to dine on our lanai overlooking tranquil gardens, lily ponds and tropical foliage or in our exquisitely refurbished dining room which features gorgeous Brazilian cherry wood floors, woven bamboo tables and plantation ceiling fans.
