Every time we go, we are always pleased. Tahiti Nui never disappoints. The cocktails are always good, there's always a band playing and the food is always more than satisfying.

This is my new favorite restaurant. It is also a bar with live amazing Hawaiian music. If you love salads like I do you will not be disappointed. They were huge and you can add the protein of your choice. The macadamia crusted ono fish...More

After a Na'Pali coast tour this is a great place to relax. Sit out on the front deck and just enjoy people watching. The stage for live music is small, but you're right there with the singer.

We were looking forward to our trip to Tahiti Nui on Friday evening, they advertised live music evening, so based on that we came in for drinks. There was a lot of locals eating, and many guests taking out pizzas, so the food must be...More

Just go anytime! No need to reserve except for the Luau. I think you need a reservation for that. If you want a great seat for live music maybe get there a little earlier. It's a fun place.
