Kauai Restaurants Guide

Updated: Jun 5, 2023

Kauai has many delicious restaurants to offer. Check out my Kauai restaurants guide to know which restaurant is best for you!

I live on Oahu and I have visited Kauai many times to be able to give you a recommended list of Kauai restaurants guide.

I highly recommend making reservations anywhere you want to eat. Some restaurants from the Kauai restaurants guide only take reservations. Eating at some local spots around 4:00-5:00pm isn't as busy and you usually don't have to wait long.
