We saved Tidepools for our last special dinner on Kauai. The setting is lovely within the Grand Hyatt grounds. Great service, wonderful wine and food. The chocolate lava cake was delicious as were our meals. Would definitely recommend as a splurge dinner.

Which was better, the meal, or the service, or the atmosphere and ambience? A tie to the first two, with the rest close behind. Go in knowing you will be well taken care of, in a very professional manner combined with island low-key friendliness. The...More

My wife and I ate here tonight. The Hawaiian catch was excellent. Fresh, local fish tasted great, cooked to perfection. The salad is so fresh and delicious. Even if you’re not staying here it’s worth going to. Surrounded by beautiful koi, waterfall, and flowers. A...More

Embrace the tempting combination of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine served in a unique Hawaiian setting. Thatched-roof bungalows float above a koi-filled lagoon at the base of a waterfall to create romantic ambiance. Inspired by local ingredients and the rich culinary traditions of Hawaii
