A great chance to meet other travelers while enjoying a delicious five course locally sourced meal. Do bring bug spray and make reservations early. If you are coming from the southern end of the island make sure you feel comfortable driving in the dark.

I just booked again for our trip in 2 weeks - because we enjoyed it so much last year. Yes, it's $60 pp and well worth it. It fills up fast so be sure and book well in advance.

They are on the grounds of Adventure Park near Princeville which is on the main road from Kapaa to Hanalei.
Is there a recent sample menu available for Kauai Ono? The only pictures posted here are of older menus and I'm just curious as to what I can expect if I dine here soon. Thank you!
