The Best Restaurants on Kauai

With tons of dining options, finding the best restaurants, food trucks, bakeries, ice cream and shave ice shops on Kauai can be daunting. We’ve broken it down for you. Whether you’ve just spent the day exploring the beauty of the Garden Isle and there’s one last thing to do before calling it a day — eat a delicious dinner, or are looking for a quick snack, we have you covered! 

Artisan agriculture is taking root, though, including heirloom fruit and vegetables, sugarcane (for rum), cacao (for chocolate) and coffee (for making life worth it.) Raise a glass of locally made craft beer at one of these restaurants, which are also sorted by cuisine. If we missed your favorite let us know.
