We absolutely LOVE sitting at the bar and enjoying the sashimi and wonderful conversation with Taylore and Justin!!!! The problem is we haven’t wanted to try any of the other restaurants on this island!!! They make it too hard to go elsewhere. Wonderful food, wonderful...More

You will not be disappointed. Red Salt always provides a wonderful experience, perfectly cooked dishes and great memories. (The attire is on the fancier side for Kauai.)

Went here for dinner on a Wednesday night. The biggest downside of the experience is getting there. There's only valet parking which is a bit annoying if you're not at the hotel, but the lack of signs and parking lot makes it difficult to know...More

Here's what sets Red Salt apart from the rest of the dining opportunities in Poipu: it's menu and preparation of dishes AND the extraordinary service. When you enter (after walking thru the hotel lobby) you'll notice instantly that there is none of the typical Hawaiian...More

We enjoyed 2 dinners here during our 5 night stay at Koa Kea. They seemed to concentrate on local produce as much as possible. Several fish choices. And the Osso Bucco meal was superb (as a guide this choice was $40) A small, but well...More

A very nice setting for fine dining. Food was again excellent and service top notch. It was a full restaurant this visit, so it was a bit noisy but not bad. Menu choices were very good for any palate. We will definitely visit again!

A little pricey but worth every penny. The Server was so funny and was great with service. Food was wonderful! Ambience was really nice.

We ate dinner here two nights. The seared ahi entree was amazing. We shared that on our first night there and it is what caused us to go back a second night. The tomato salad is a great starter as well.

We opted for fine dining on our last evening in Poipu, so we chose Red Salt. The food and service both hit that mark. We were seated promptly and our server immediately came to the table. She was very personable, professional and attentive throughout the...More

Nice breakfast with a view of the ocean. Breakfast package / buffet kind of mediocre, but menu items were great, service excellent. Price is commensurate with hotel rates, so it's not cheap, but it is good.

We just walked in with another couple and were seated immediately...I would guess it depends on the time of day. We were there at about 7 pm and few tables were occupied..

If I recall it's 6:30 - 11AM. Be prepared for a generous buffet that will satisfy most every palate. The hostess will seat you and bring you warm muffins and a beverage to enjoy while you decide your entry . The variety... More
