Eating On Kauai – Roy Yamaguchi – The Tavern at Princeville

Eating On #Lunch #Kauai – #RoyYamaguchi – #The Tavern at #Princeville

The Tavern at Princeville is one of our favorite places for dinner, today however we are talking LUNCH. The restaurant has an amazing view of the Prince golf course all the way out to the ocean. I was with a few friends who had only been there for dinner, they were taken by the view. They were then taken by the food.

When you sit down, you are greeted with a bowl of fresh popped pop corn, with some yummy spices mixed in. If what you order does not come with the Tavern Frites (Parmesan & Herb Fries), be sure to order one for the table.

The BLTA sandwich is a MUST.


Another MUST is the local fresh tuna sandwich.

According to Roy, The Tavern is based on memories of his grandfather who had a tavern on Maui, grandpa Herny's tavern was a gathering place for the community. Roy's Tavern carries the same spirit, a place where families, friends, locals and visitors gather in a comfortable yet humble establishment for good food, good drinks and good times.

They also have their own organic permaculture garden, just a short walk from the restaurant.

Eating On Kauai – Verde Hawaii – Mexican

If your craving #Mexican food, and your on #Kauai, look no further. And today is #Tequila #Tuesday.


Located in a tiny strip mall on the east side, #Kapaa Town, you'll know your there, as there is usually a line out the door. The restaurant is busy and happy, everyone is having a great time, including the staff. The portions are large, so be prepared to be pleasantly full.

We like to do take-out here also, so if you live on Kauai or have a condo… go for it.

Maris, the owner and her staff have just celebrated their 6th anniversary… Congratulations!

The tacos are amazing, many believe it's the best fish taco on the island. The menu is great, you will want everything on it.

Eating On Kauai – Jean-Georges – Kauai Grill

Kauai Grill – at The St. Regis Princeville Resort, you can't go wrong on the North Shore, with sweeping views of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai, while enjoying a creative dining experience from Michelin awarded Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

What we love about Kauai Grill, is the attention to the freshest local fish available, as well as other local produce like fresh hearts of palm from the Big Island.

Here is a sample:

Hamachi Sashimi, radish and avocado with a soy-ginger dressing.

One of my favorites, Heart of Palm Salad, with vine ripened tomatoes, avocado and coconut vinaigrette, and

Parsnip Soup, coconut, lime and mint, fantastic!


Mero, Malaysian Chili Sauce and Thai basil.


Mahi Mahi, Nut and seed crust, sweet and sour jus.
Parmesan Crusted Chicken with white asparagus, basil and lemon butter.

Also on the menu is Wagyu beef, with an assortment of sauces to choose from,

In the appetizer section we love the Spiced Chicken Samosas with Cilantro Yogurt, and the Crispy Kurobuta Pork Belly, with sweet ginger puree, bok choy and lime vinagrette.

For Sides, a must is the ginger rice and crispy steak fries.

Mahalo to Chef de Cuisine, Maxime Michaud and Manager Antonio Palomares

Aloha & Happy Eating.
