The fact that Neide's is still open is quite amazing. The food is incredibly bland and the prices are too high for what you get. I guess people (myself included) just can't resist that view. We always end up eating at Neide's at least once...More

Wow! It's been awhile since I saw a restaurant owner berate a waitress in front of customers. I feel badly for the waitress. Some guy wanted a drink and she said she would try to make it. The guy was really excited but before she...More

I've eaten at Neide's many times over the years. Even though the food is just average, I still enjoy dining on their version of Brazilian black bean dishes on the patio in the back of the Hanalei Center. The Mexican selections are a little better...More

Hidden gem. Full bar along with Brazilian/ Mexican cuisine. Seafood enchilada and Brazilian crepe filled with ground beef and cheese was our dinner order. Came with black beans and rice. Very good! Mai Tai's are excellent as well.

We found the food to be quite good and the setting is picturesque with a backdrop of the mountains and waterfall. The waiter was friendly but a bit out there and didn't remember part of our order. Beware of ordering menu items that don't list...More

We stopped in because of the view! We looked at Baracuda and the price was too much for what we wanted. We sat outside with the mountain view. We were early enough to be the first in a big rush. The chef hammered out about...More

Most of the seating is outside on a covered deck behind the building, so is away from the hubub which is now the norm in tiny, very popular town of Hanalei. The fish tacos were very good, but messy to eat because they were prepared...More

I don't understand the bad reviews of this place. I've eaten here twice (once for dinner and once for happy hour), and both times I had good food and really nice drinks. The views out across the valley are lovely, and it's never been crowded....More
