Poipu Beach Area Restaurants

Our favorite upscale dinner restaurants in the Poipu Beach area are Plantation Gardens and The Beach House. For informal dining, particularly breakfast and dinner, we suggest CasaBlanca at the Kiahuna Tennis Club, the Poipu Beach Broiler, Dali Deli in Koloa Town and the Kalaheo Coffee Company in Kalaheo.

At most of the better restaurants, it's a good idea to make advance reservations for evening meals.

 
The Plantation Gardens

The Plantation Gardens

The Plantation Gardens (808-742-2121) is an easy walk from your Kiahuna beachhouse.  The restaurant is located in an historic plantation owner's home.  The ambiance is outstanding.  We recommend that you ask for veranda seating.  Check reviews on the internet in advance. 

 
Casa Blanca

Casa Blanca

Casa Blanca (742-2929) at the Kiahuna Tennis Club is an informal, open-air restaurant that is currently open Tuesday-Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm and 5-9 pm.  On Sunday a brunch is served from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.  Hours of operation change; call in advance to check.

 
The Beach House

The Beach House

The Beach House (742-1424) is located on Lawaii Road, about ten minutes west of Kiahuna.  The restaurant is very popular; reservations are highly recommended.  The setting is spectacular.  Both the menu and the service have been top notch in our experience.  If the restaurant is booked for your preferred time, we recommend dining in the bar.  The bar is set up so that you can look out to the ocean while you dine.

 
Pizzetta

Pizzetta

Pizzetta (742-8881) is located on the main street of Koloa at the site of the former "Koloa Broiler".  This is your basic pizza and sandwiches restaruant.  The pizza is good and the atmosphere is local, i.e. very casual.  This is a good place to take the kids for a relatively inexpensive dinner or a light lunch.

 
Kalaheo Coffee Company & Cafe

Kalaheo Coffee Company & Cafe

Kalaheo Coffee Company & Cafe (332-5858) is our favorite location for breakfast and lunch. It is moderately priced and good for children.  The restaurant is located on the left as you enter the town of Kalaheo, a 20 minute drive from Kiahuna.  At the time of this update, it is open daily from 6:30 am to 2:30 pm for breakfast and lunch.  It is also open on Wed-Sat from 5:30-9:00 pm for dinner.  You should call and doublecheck evening meal dates and hours of operation prior to driving to Kalaheo

 
Keoki's Paradise

Keoki's Paradise

Keoki's Paradise (742-7534) located across the street in the Kiahuna Shopping Village is popular with locals and tourists.

 

Josselin's Tapas Bar & Grill

Josselin's Tapas Bar & Grill (742-7117) is located upstairs in the Kukuiula Shopping Village.  Good for dinner.  Take-out available.

 

Roy's

Roy's (742-5000), a popular restaurant chain in Hawaii, is conveniently located across the street from Kiahuna in the Poipu Shopping Village.  The menu is excellent.  Prices are on the expensive side.

 

Merriman's

Merriman's (742-8385)  An attractive setting, upstairs, in the Kukuiula Shopping Village. Expensive.  Emphasizes locally grown produce and beef. Merriman's has a very good reputation around Hawaii.  However, we recommend checking the internet for more recent reviews.  For an informal meal, you may want to try Merriman's Cafe, downstairs from the main restaurant.

 

Brennecke's Beach Broiler

Brennecke's Beach Broiler (742-7588), a five-minute drive from Kiahuna, has a lively casual bar atmosphere, views of the ocean and a more moderately priced menu.  Catering services also available.

 

The Kalaheo Steak House

The Kalaheo Steak House (332-9780) is located about 15-20 minutes from Kiahuna at 4444 Papalina Road in Kalaheo. The food is good, prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is more "local". A nice alternative.

 

The Tidepools

The Tidepools (742-1234) is an open-air restaurant on a lagoon at the Hyatt Hotel. You may find it convenient to walk next door to the Sheraton for breakfast.  The Sheraton alsohas an authentic Japanese restaurant.

 

Gaylord's Restaurant at Kilohana

Gaylord's Restaurant at Kilohana (245-9593) is located at the Kilohana Plantation, Route 50, the road to Lihue.  Have lunch or dinner in the beautiful courtyard of this historic plantation home.

 

Joe's on the Green

Joe's on the Green (742-9696) is located nearby at the Kiahuna Golf Course Club House.  We recommend Joe's for moderately priced breakfasts and luncheons.  Joe can provide catering for groups, large and small.  The weekday breakfast special before 8:30 is a real bargain. 

 

It's a good idea to make advance reservations for all the better restaurants on the island.  We will give you our opinions based upon longer-term experiences; however, ownership, chefs, staffs and menus change over time.
