“Good food, Good atmosphere”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

We had dinner here 4 of our 7 nights. It was within walking distance from our hotel (Sheraton). We ate in the bar area ordering off the bar menu. The food was great and at reasonable prices. When you bring your receipt back in on your next visit you get a free piece of Hula pie which was delicious! Our server was Tricia and she was awesome. We would sit in her section each time. She gave us great service and offered some great tips about the food. She even gave us a hug goodbye on our last night. I just wish the entertainment started a little bit earlier!

“Good Pupus, Decent Service, Fun Place with Live Music”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

We stopped in after a full day, needing some pupus and drinks before heading off to the hotel for the evening. Our server, Farian, was a little spacey - but the service ended up being fine. We ordered drinks and appetizers and she came back to ask us if we wanted to order food! ha - she meant dinner, but we were surprised they don't consider their appetizers to be food. :)

Our drinks were good - they did mess up the wine we got served, so we were a little confused about why it tasted different than what we expected. Those of us who like calimari said it was the best calimari they've ever had. I enjoyed the coconut shrimp, the onion rings, not so much (nothing special). The sauces that came with the appetizers were good, the ambiance was tiki fun and the live music was nice without being overwhelmingly loud.

I was surprised to find this under attractions - it's really just a place to eat with live music.

“yummy, friendly, and not too expensive”
Reviewed 3 September 2011

kieokis paridise was perfect in every way the sevice was so friendly and kind and the food was excellent. it was a beautiful setup considering that it had a fish pond with rocks around it where birds actualy come and land on some of the rocks so bring your camera. price wise it was not too expensive but very well worth it. if you are ordering fish you pick any catch of the day then pick the the seasonings/toppings/breadings i had the opa fish incrusded with crushed macidamia nuts and it was amazing. over all kieokis was great.

Beautiful indoor outdoor restaurant. Great food. Love the bread and carrot muffins to start with
Had the Shrimp skewer pupu's and Ono with parmesean/breaded fish. So tasty
Live music and a happening bar

“Decent food and setting, rushed service for mass production”
Reviewed 24 June 2011

This is a very touristy dinner destination in the Po'ipu area, with sometimes challenging parking and sometimes waits. The layout and the scenery is done well, though not in any authentic way, and the food was above average maybe a tab below what I would have expected for the price.

The worst part is the atmosphere that was created by a staff that is clearly trying to maximize the number of customers coming through the door on a given night. They were nice enough, but very quick to get your orders and very tough to get their attention. It is run as if it is a large and busy Applebee's, but with substantially higher prices (though food is better quality too).

There are better options around this area if you are going to go for a relatively pricey dinner.
