My wife and I had dinner at Federico's our first night in Kauai. Being from Southern California, we consider ourselves pretty knowledgeable of Mexican cuisine.

My huevos rancheros were delicious. Wife's breakfast burrito was bland. Would go back however. Good choice in Princeville.

The staff brought the food out to the food court seating area. I ordered a mango chicken salad bowl for take-out one night, got back to... More

Super yummy mexican breakfast. Loved the burritos and omelets. All was so good we stopped back for chips and salsa later in the day. Would definitely make this a regular spot next time I am back in Kauai

The food was great, not a dinner location but great spot for casual lunch. I would go back again to try other things on the menu!

Th breakfast burrito had everything I love in a Breakfast Burrito. It had potatoes, eggs, bacon and cheese. It was a great start to my day. I sat out in the open are... More

Ok so it's a pretty bold claim but I'm going to go out on a limb and say it. Tried various places near Princeville and Hanalei and if you want a tasty fish taco with great flavor. The rest of the fare is pretty standard for a Mexican place but this is THE place to go for fish tacos. I... More
