Had a late dinner one night after arriving back at the hotel quite late after a long drive. Very pleasant atmosphere and great view of the ocean and the nice cool breeze. The service was very good and the meal quite enjoyable but quite expensive as you would expect. We were not rushed and the ambience was pleasant and would... More

We stayed at the Marriott resort for a week and enjoyed drinks here every day and lunch many days. This is a very fun, open air place directly on the beach. The staff are fun, friendly and attentive. The lunch menu is small but all items we tried were really good. Note, this is a casual place so don't expect... More

We are owners at Marriott Kauai Beach Club for six years. Sadly they ended our favorite meal (the prime rib and king crab buffet). I've never loved buffets but that one was great. Heard great reviews about the Friday night special of prime or pig or fish. We got the prime rib w mashed potatoes and salad bar. Salad bar... More

Food was good. Setting is very nice. Service was challenged with some very large groups. The organic local beef was very good.

We ate here often during our honeymoon. The food was very good, but I have to admit that I was in love with the drinks.

We were staying at the the Marriott Vacation Beach Club in Kalapaki Beach and this was the in resort breakfast option. It was a normal buffet but at $30+ it was quite underwhelming. Service was inattentive.

We arrived at the Marriott in Lihue on December 24th - absolutely beautiful!! We went to Kukui's for their special Christmas Eve dinner and enjoyed every bite. The salad bar is fairly predictable BUT it included gorgeous shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were large, tender and sweet - quite possibly the best shrimp I've ever eaten. My daughter and granddaughter ordered... More

We love this restaurant. It has great atmosphere and the decor is so inviting. The food is delicious and the service very good. It seems to always be but a short wait for our meal to arrive. Make sure to save room for dessert!

when we arrived at the Marriott and waited for our room to be ready, we were told that the Kalapaki Beach Hut no longer was open (not true - see my review - the Marriott's Kalapaki GRILL was the one that had closed - do not be fooled!!), so we went to Kukui's for lunch. fish tacos were very good....

My husband and I were guests of the Marriott and we tried this place for dinner and had an amazing experience. Our Marriott experience included the "Breakfast Package" and we enjoyed great made-to-order breakfasts served with a smile - five of the six days we were there (we were never told that on Sunday's the Breakfast Package is a reduced...
