A bit Moroccan flavor. Best food, ambience, & server (hey Liz) on the island! It makes the trek north from Poipu worth the effort.

My husband and I ate at Mediterranean Gourmet tonight. The place is beautifully set looking out over the crashing Pacific.....beautiful. Our server, Candace, was very sweet albeit uninformed. Wednesday night is half price wine night and we had a decent bottle of Sangiovese. I had the fish lettuce wraps...like fish tacos only with lettuce. The fish I had never heard... More

LOVED this place. The views of the ocean are breathtaking. The drink options and food options are spectacular. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We were there for a wedding reception dinner and it was an absolute amazing time. They even had live music and hula dancing as well. Highly recommend this location. Try the crab cakes! Out of this...

The restaurant was conveniently located for us, just down the road from our vacation rental. The service was great because there weren't many people there that night. The food was good.

Seating was pretty quick, but it took a while for the waitress to get to us. Order beverages quickly because they took a good while to arrive too. My steamed clams were to die for, while my sweetie's Paella, one of the specials, was just okay. A little dry, but still fairly tasty. The setting is quite nice, but the... More

Staying just two blocks away, my wife and I tried the Mediteranian. We ordered the paella for two; very generous serving loaded with seafood. We went back the following night with more paella for my wife and Rosemary lamb for me. Absolutely delicious! The service was prompt, the staff very friendly and the live entertainment muted and professional. We loved... More

The Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant is not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination. We ate there a few days ago. We paid high prices for awful food that seemed to be made from prepared mixes. I haven't eaten such bad food since I was in the hospital. Quite honestly, the food was on par with hospital food. I wish someone... More

I made reservations at the Mediterranean Gourmet to celebrate my 70th birthday. My wife and I were joined by our five adult children as we vacationed on Kauai. When we arrived we were escorted to our table by the window overlooking the ocean. The table was situated so that we had maximum privacy in a public restaurant. The food was... More
