There were some threads about this a few weeks ago.

If you are coming after Oct see if the restaurants in the St Regis are open.

Other suggestions are:

Red Salt, Beach House and Plantation Gardens.

Beach House has the best views.

Not sure where you are staying... there are a lot of excellent restaurants on the island. But for our "date" night in June, we chose Red Salt at the Koa Kea hotel. It was very quiet and intimate, great service and fabulous food. You might want to watch the sunset from their front lawn and the have dinner. You'll have the place to yourself.

We also really like Plantation Gardens. Both places are in Poipu. http://www.pgrestaurant.com/html/home.htm

If you are on the north shore, the Mediterranean Gourmet in Haena is fabulous. They have a wonderful ocean front location with excellent food and service. http://www.kauaimedgourmet.com/

The Beach House is also an option. It's very popular. My only concern is the "zoo" that happens at sunset. Everyone (and I mean everyone) gets up from their table as the sun sets to take a picture out on the lawn. It's a great photo op and will make a great Christmas card photo. You might opt to run over there just for the sunset (and picture) and then have dinner somewhere a little more quiet. Just my 2 cents....

OR you can have a cocktail at the Sheraton's bar called The Point and then have dinner at Red Salt or Plantation Gardens.

OR watch the sunset at Ke'e Beach on the north shore and then have dinner at The Med. Gourmet.

Since you are staying at the Hyatt, I would recommend one of the south shore restaurants. Tide Pools at the Hyatt is also very romantic but the service and food are not as consistent as I would like... Dondero's at the Hyatt is excellent but can be pricey. They have great seating on the terrace.

Gosh, there are a couple of very nice restaurants at the Hyatt. Tidepools is super. If you make a reservation and ask for a table by the waterfall you won't be disappointed. I like having romantic dinners at the resort where we're staying whenever possible. I beats having to drive and park and it allows you have a couple drinks without fear of driving after drinking.

<<how much would the taxi be?

Are you saying "no car"?? big mistake on Kauai!

Princeville is a ways from the Hyatt.

Tidepools is a great spot for dinner, finish it off with a nice walk on the beach in the evening. We have had very excellent service and meals there. I would even suggest the Koa Kea, but I have not eaten there yet - maybe in Feb. But we always make it a point to eat at Tidepools at least one time. We don't do alot of splurging there, usually cook in the condo.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

"does anyone know how far it is from the grand hyatt to st regis and can you take a taxi?"

Wow....that would be some taxi ride I'm afraid....

to drive from here in the Po'ipu area all the way up to Princeville takes me about and hour and a half, give or take 15 minutes or so.

If you don't have access to a car....I definitely wouldn't go to the North Shore in a cab....many, many lovely restaurants in our area here that people have already mentioned....also, depending on when you are here "Merriman's" is going to be opening in a fabulous ocean view location at the Kukui'ula shopping Village - so add another "romantic" restaurant to the ones already listed.

Malama Pono,

Janet
