The food was very bland. Even a basic Baja fish taco wasn't good. We ordered fish taco, crab cake,coconut shrimp and a seafood Hanalei . Bland taste . I'm giving a two star just for the service and the view. Disappointed.

We will never return to this restaurant and we're still upset that we ever ate here. My wife and I came in for a quick dinner and some drinks. We saw they had sushi on the menu and were intrigued, thinking that sushi from Hawaii...More

The food is excellent! I've eaten here twice on my visit to Kauai. Tired the fish tacos and a sushi roll. Both were excellent! Drinks are good too. Their staff are friendly enough.

It really depends on the time of day and the size of the party (if you are a couple, you can sit on the desirable seats by the window openings, if available). Our favorite trick is to arrive about 5:15 (when dinner service... More

Our relaxed and spacious second story, open-air restaurant has a great ambiance and best picture taking views of Hanalei's mountains and waterfalls. Visitors and locals come time and time again for Bouchon's Pacific-American menu that's filled with a great selection of fresh homemade pupus, local caught seafood, teriyaki chicken, ribs and a premier sushi bar second to none. The famous Copper Bar serves up everything from soft drinks to Saki, including our very popular Mai-Tai. Located in the heart of Hanalei, we have the perfect gathering place to enjoy with family and friends.
