We just came back from a gorgeous eight days in Poipu, Kauai. We had not been to Plantation Gardens before as it is tucked back in to a surrounding resort. This trip to Hawaii, we not only tried it, but went back a second evening....More

We had a fine meal at the Plantation Gardens on our first night in the Poipu area. Walking distance from several hotels including the Castle, Sheraton, and Marriott. The grounds are just beautiful and the open-air dining lets you take it all in and relax....More

Went with my sister who has been there several times. The menu is on the small side for choices. I actually had the hamburger without the bun and it was very delicious while my sister and her husband had the fish entrees. On the pricey...More

We visit Hawaii often, with Kauai being our favourite island. Plantation Gardens has just joined our favourite restaurants there. Great atmosphere, excellent menu and superb food.

Met at 6:30 and shared 4 pupils and drinks with a lovely couple. Food was great, wine and beer fine. Nice service and a delightful evening. We did not have entrees this time. We sat just under the roof near the veranda. There were fans...More

Too tired and lazy to look elsewhere. Huge servings. Recommend pork chops. Very expensive and they like big tips. Didn't go back. Food great, lovely verandah setting

open air, like siting on the porch at a plantation house, beautiful lite garden view. As everywhere else we went service was excellent and the food was great. Slightly quieter atmosphere, good for romantic dinner

Atmosphere is everything, but the food is tasty, fresh and inexpensive compared to other Kauai restauants.

I don't think there is a children's menu per se. The food would suit any child who enjoys good quality food. It is a very quiet / "adult" style restaurant, so if you have boisterous small humans I'd recommend the Olympic... More

No, unfortunately they do not. The restaurant hours at 5:30pm-9:00pm. Out of everywhere we ate, by far our favorite dinner spot.

As the others have mentioned they can do a bigger group, just call them. You may want to ask to sit on the lanai or more inside, but still open air. Enjoy.

Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar is located in a beautifully restored plantation manor on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Dating back to the 1930's, the estate once served as the plantation manager's home for Hawaii's first sugar plantation, the Koloa plantation. Later, the estate was acquired by the Moir Family who built the world famous gardens that surround the restaurant. Our menu reflects the heritage of old plantation Hawaii, which celebrates the abundance and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Our fresh fish is caught daily by local fishermen in waters off Kauai. We use organically grown vegetables and herbs picked fresh on nearby farms and from our own gardens. Guests may choose to dine on our lanai overlooking tranquil gardens, lily ponds and tropical foliage or in our exquisitely refurbished dining room which features gorgeous Brazilian cherry wood floors, woven bamboo tables and plantation ceiling fans.
