If you’re close to the North Shore of Kauai, this is a great place to eat. It’s located on the way to the Kilauea Lighthouse in an area with little shops. The casual open air dining area is nice with lots of greenery surrounding it and providing ambiance and separation from the other shops and parking area. There is a bar on one side with some casual sofas beside it which was nice for watching sports on the televisions.
We spoke in depth to our server who was very enthusiastic & descriptive about the menu items which helped us in placing our order. The restaurant uses local fish, meat and vegetables in their dishes which I’m sure added to the freshness and flavor of our fantastic meal. The menu had a great selection of varied appetizers and entrees to choose from. We ordered the Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potato Fries appetizer that had a very nice Chipotle-Ranch dip that was very tasty. The Strip Steak was prepared perfectly and had excellent flavor. The very tender Short Ribs were prepared just right with an excellent sauce that had the perfect amount of caramelization. The vegetables were fresh and had great taste. For desert we had Banana Pie and Crème Brule which were both very good.
Of all of the casual, mid priced meals we had during our Kauai vacation, this was by far the best. None of us experienced any of their seafood dishes, but based on how good everything we had was, I imagine those dishes are also very unique and tasteful. I recommend that you make a point to have lunch or dinner at The Bistro.
