Dining and Entertainment

Kauai’s dining choices are an extensive menu of culinary heritage, diversity and classic Island fare. Popular casual dining items include saimin, a Hawaii noodle soup, which is a favorite any time of day and lilikoi (passionfruit) pie. Ambiance and creative menus abound at island icons and resorts throughout

Kauai. Tastes like Mediterranean, Hawaii Regional cuisine, Pacific Rim, Italian, Thai, barbecue, steak, Japanese and more are all available. Vegetarian restaurants and bakeries offer healthy, organic and even some gluten-free choices.

Where do local folks hang when the moon is up and the surf is down? Their favorite neighborhood bars, of course—just like people everywhere. There’s lots of them, but this is an island that shuts down early so get started before 10 if you expect to catch a little action.

On the North Shore, Hanalei Bay Resort, Princeville Resort and hip Hanalei Town fuel the action, while the Po`ipu area on the South Shore, is a good place to find jazz, local sounds and a little dance music. On the east side, in downtown Kapa`a, you can find plenty of action, while Lihu`e offers oceanside restaurants and bars at Kalapaki Beach for a lively evening.
