Ate here for seven days for breakfast and once for dinner while staying at the Koa Kea. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was spectacular and amazing. A must visit.

The food here was very good. If I am in Hawaii, I want to see the ocean and this restaurant is in an older hotel with no view. The atmosphere is great and updated. An enjoyable evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Red Salt the evening we arrived at Koa Kea. The setting was relaxed, intimately lit with a comfortable spacing between tables. The menu showed a creative flair in the kitchen and our two different fresh fish dishes were expertly prepared....More

They may vary seasonally. I think they were open by 7, but I am not positive.

Red Salt offers a "healthy choice" vegetarian menu upon request for both breakfast and dinner. The standard breakfast and dinner menus also feature some vegetarian dishes.

Red Salt’s diverse menu by acclaimed Executive Chef and Kauai native Noelani Planas celebrates fresh Hawaiian seafood and produce in a casual, yet sophisticated seaside atmosphere. Modern dinner cuisine including vanilla bean-seared mahi, ahi tartare, and the decadently layered Red Salt burger are served in a contemporary setting. Select nights, the Red Salt Lounge is host to a sushi bar featuring the day’s freshest catch in innovative, isle-inspired rolls. Lounge and sushi bar seating are not available for reservation and is first come, first served. During morning hours, Red Salt offers tropical takes on traditional breakfast dishes, such as lobster benedict and lemon-pineapple soufflé pancakes, recently featured by Food Network.
