We ate dinner there last night. The nachos appetizer was both huge and delicious. Fish and Chips and Fish tacos were superb. Well done!

Stopped in for quick bite about 11:50 am. Gave our name to hostess and we're told about 10 minutes wait. Turned out to be less than five. Yay! Sat down on the porch area facing the street and mountains and server Caesar was right there....More

We went for happy hour and got the pulled pork nachos and some cocktails. Massive portion of nachos and although they had a bunch of toppings they were lacking flavor. Cheap tho.

I had the most delicious Coconut Shrimp at Kalypso. I paired it with a Coconut Porter and it was divine. The Bartenders were very friendly and accommodating. Cute little place in old Hanalei Town...

Enjoyed breakfast of eggs, Portuguese sausage and potatoes. Great food at a reasonable price. Also tried the Banana Mac-but pancakes-very good. Service was quick and friendly. There are a few TV's for watching sports. Nice atmosphere.

Stopped in to grab some lunch. The staff is very welcoming and enjoyed a nice cold beer along with fish and chips that were especially good. Fun to sit along the railing and watch the world go by.

We are here last week and the service and food was really nice. The taco trio for starters were super delicious ! I thought the food was well priced and tasty which is actually harder to find than you might think on this island.

I confess, I didn't notice, but my sister in law had a pasta style dish made with zucchini noodles instead of pasta. Does that help?
Love to see their menu

Just go to their website, you'll see their menu.

I don't know if they take reservations. We did not mind the wait. The place is very informal and the maitais at the bar made us forget we were waiting for a table.
