Full Description
Keoki’s Paradise is an open air restaurant and one of the islands popular destinations for tourists. It's themed like a big tiki hut or tiki bar inside and with the open air layout and waterfalls going it just has a great vibe to it. It's a very obvious fake and man-made feel but it works here.

Lunch and dinner are served here and it's a big place so should be able to handle plenty of people easily. Kids are sure to enjoy the ponds and waterfalls so a good family friendly option all around.

The menu offers various sandwiches, burgers, salads as well as seafood and steak entrees. I started out with the Kalua Pork Spring Rolls ($8.95) for an appetizer which included two large rolls cut in half (4 pieces total) in a sweet and sour type sauce. They were a little on the greasy side since they are deep fried but still very good.

For my main course I felt like a good burger so tried their Rancher's Burger ($15.95) which comes with bacon, swiss cheese, caramelized onions, and an aioli sauce. The burger itself was cooked fine by the bacon was half cooked in parts and almost raw in others and had no flavor at all. I ended up removing the bacon to be safe.

The burger meat tasted good and fresh but lacked a ton of flavor, as though they don't season it at all. The swiss had no flavor so it would have been better with some other cheese. The aioli was okay but also surprisingly bland. It was a situation where I could tell this was a good quality food item but just wish it had more flavor.

The service here was excellent and our waitress, Kiana, was super friendly and recommend we try the plantation iced tea ($3.25) which was really tasty (though refills seemed to be regular iced tea). Overall it was a very pleasant experience and good and relaxing place to be and I'd eat here again, though wouldn't get the burger again.

The only other complaint I have is the prices which seem a bit high even for Kauai. $16 for a burger? I have no problem with that when it's a really flavorful burger. We'll be back and see how it goes with some other items.

Keoki's was a delicious meal and their lobster tails were cooked to perfection. Seriously, this was one of the best meals I had on Kauai.

4.5 is the highest I could give it. The reason is we like to sit and have a drink or two before dinner. No problem, but the chairs are so hard you are lucky to sit through one drink and skip dinner. But over all it's one of our favorite places.

Keoki's Paradise is a gem in the Poipu area. I have been there on our last two trips to Kauai and am sure we will eat there again when return later this year. The food is always excellent, from burgers to ribs they are all tasty and prepared to perfection. This past trip we tried the ribs and they had an apricot glaze that was fabulous. I love also the feel of the restaurant that is beautifully decorated and brings the beauty of the island indoors. It is a wonderfully special place to eat.

This was a pleasant surprise. Great blended mai tai's, great service, and their sundowner meal for 26.00 was the best surprise. The fish (opa I believe) was the best I'd had on the island and for being in a shopping centre, the pool the bar and restaurant sit by is a lovely thing to look at. Both our 3-course meals were worth the visit.

Keoki's has that tropical vibe when you first step into the restaurant. It has that Margaritaville feeling. The type of place where you want to grab a mai tai or pina colada. Even though the restaurant is not located near the ocean, the furnishings and lush trees in the patio reminds you that you're on the tropical vacation. We ordered the kalua pig appetizer with a delicious iced tea. It was really good. The kalua pig was moist and not too salty. The iced tea was refreshing and our server refilled it when she saw we were low.

I also ordered the sliders plate. It came with three sliders–hamburger, kalua pork, and fishcake. Although the other two were tasty, my favorite was the kalua pork. The food presentation was tastefully done. The cocktails with pineapple slices and little umbrellas,he outdoor koi pond, the palm trees, and the indoor grass shack bar contribute to the feel of the spirit of Keoki's paradise. Recommended.

Keoki’s Paradise got the approval of most of their customers gaining an average of 3.5 stars customer review.

The majority of the customers rated it at 3 to 5 stars and a few have rated it less. Most of the customers find the view magnificent, and the food is just great, although a little bit pricey.

They have a very attentive crew and are ready to cater to their customers needs. The ambiance is just perfect. One thing most agree on is that the "Hula pie is great".
