Neide's is owned be a native of Rio de Janeiro and this restaurant is along standing favorite of ours that does not disappoint. The menu features burritos, panquecas, fajitas, fish tacos, and similar and has excellent quality and has a full bar. Located in the heart of Hanalei overlooking the center island mountains it's a beautiful location.

The view is one of the most beautiful in Kauai. We were relaxing at an outside table and the most beautiful rainbow appeared above the vast mountain range towering over the magical green meadow. The rainbow graced the sky for several minutes. We also enjoyed the variety of birds and domestic animals roaming the meadows. The black and white cat... More

I am a frequent visitor to Kauai and used to enjoy eating at Neide's. A couple of years ago i discovered i had a gluten allergy. 3 times in the past 2 1/2 years I have tried to eat there and each time they refused to accommodate me. I tried ordering the crepe (just put the contents in a bowl... More

DO NOT GO HERE unless you like being frustrated. This was our second visit to this restaurant. Last year was not nearly as bad, but this time was pretty much unbearable. The. Slowest. Service. Ever. Also unfriendly. Like we were bothering her and all the other guests. Food was not great either. We were not in a hurry by any... More

I have lived on Kauai for 4 years and eaten at Neide's 3 times - each time hoping it would be better than the last mainly because of the wonderful view. I then left to live in Europe for 3 years and just came back for a few months. I went back to Neide's hoping the chef would have either... More

We are from Los Angeles so we are spoiled when it comes to Mexican food so take that into account. This a good option if you are craving a burrito and nachos and the service was very good. We enjoyed sitting outside watchung the rain come down, looking at the mountains while eating our chips and salsa, which you don't... More

Let me start by saying that we have been coming to Hanalei for over 20 years, and have eaten at Neide's many times. It was because of this that we decided to eat there yesterday evening. From the start, things went wrong. They had added two 2-tops in a different area near the door. Previously it had always been the... More

nice little change to the fish tacos and poke overkill in Hawaii. Service is friendly, and the food tastes really good - we had a moqueca that was just like the ones we had in Rio!

We came here initially because of the ambience, as you can sit outside and have views of the mountains. The food we ordered was the nachos, very solid, as an appetizer. We also got the Thai coconut curry shrimp, in delicious sauce, as well as the seafood enchiladas. Both very fresh and delicious. Only thing bad was the price. We... More
