What time should we sit for dinner if we want the sunset?

We are trying to make reservations for next Saturday (the 24th) and want to be there in time for the sunset - Maybe even 30 minutes beforehand. I know I could google the sunset for Princeville, but I don't know if that time means the time the sun is actually fully down or not. Thanks for any help you can give!

If you're making reservations at the Kauai Grill, I suggest you make them for the earliest time available, 5:30 or 6 in order to get a window seat.

It's pretty dang dark by 6:30 or so now. You'll lose another 10-20 min by the 24th so get there early. If you don't want to eat that early, hit the bar and watch from the lanai. It's been very warm so being outside at dusk is nice.

Sunset is when you can no longer see any sun. There's still refracted twilight but this close to the equator, that doesn't last long at all.

Keep in mind most dinners probably last 1.5-2hrs. And for some reason there may be a 10-15 min wait even with a res.
