Highly recommend Lavas at the Sheraton in Poipu. Location is fantastic, pretty much on the beach. Food is GREAT. Watch the Allii luau from the restaurant, don't buy a ticket. Prices are not cheap, but it's a resort and everything is expensive. At least the food and drinks are above average. Try the Kalua pork nachos and the bento box.... More

Stayed at the Sheraton for 5 night and ate our breakfast and other meals at lava's. We ate the Buffett each day but they do have a menu. The Buffett was complete, good but maybe a little proey. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

We went here for lunch and they offered the Pineapple Cup drinks! Be prepared, it was $10 just for the pineapple so expect to spend between $22-$24 just for the drink. I got the Tai Chi something or other and it was fantastic! We also got burgers but they were really really dry and tasteless. I would highly recommend for... More

Wonderful menu with open air dining by the Sheraton poipu beach pool. A tad on the pricey side but well worth it. Open for breakfast,lunch and dinner while watching the waves roll in.

....the service was pretty ordinary. We arrived after 14 hours travel and went to the bar for a drink, sat at the table and were unseen or ignored! Went to the bar and ordered a drink the bar man was nice but the wait staff scarce and inattentive, the drink was very nice. We had an evening meal there and... More

The food here was okay. Expensive as one might expect. The big plus was the friendly service. We ate here twice during our stay and each time we enjoyed the awesome manner of the staff. Poolside service was amazing, too.

Thank alohafam
