By Western U.S. standards, this is average Mexican at best. Setying in strip mall with closed door was hot and stuffy. Below average service. Good fresh fish salvages 3 1/4 stars.

The stacked chicken enchiladas were very good. Taco salad with chicken was fresh, local ingredients. Chips, salsa and guacamole also fresh and very good. Sopapillas were some of the best I have had. If you are looking for some good fresh Mex food done a little different then check out Verde.

Definitely disappointing. We wanted to eat on New Year's Day at this restaurant and in order to be on the safe side, I contacted them beforehand to ask whether they are actually open. As we were 7 people as well, I would have liked to make a reservations. Their email answer was that they were open, however, not making reservations.... More

We love, love, love this place! The fish tacos are out of this world! The kids menu is great and the salsa is amazing. We always order a side of guacamole and there is a TON of it! The only thing is they have TINY chip bowls so we always have to request more chips but other than that it... More

We ate here based on good reviews which were well deserved. The restaurant is not much on ambiance, a small place in a supermarket mall, but clean and efficient with fast attentive service and really tasty food. We had stacked enchiladas with beef and nachos with pork al pastor. We were so happy to try a small local place vs... More

I have been to Verde before and had a great experience. This time, not so much. This restaurant is quite busy so expect a bit of a wait. This time though I felt as though we were considered a hassle for the staff. We were told the wait was about 15-20 minutes but it ended up being over a half... More

We love eating at Verde, been going since they opened and make sure we visit at least twice whenever we are in Kauai. The staff are great, service is quick and efficient. Warm taco chips and a mildly spicy salsa are complimentary as a starter. The fish of the day was Ahi tuna and blackened Mahi Mahi. My husband had... More

Every time we went by inn the evening, there was a crowd waiting to get in. Once we ate there, we understood why. This is fabulous Mexican fare. Everything came out piping hot and all the dishes were well conceived. I loved my Stacked Enchiladas with citrus chicken and both chiles. The food was fresh, the sauces incredibly tasty, and...

We ate at Verde Restaurant for a variety of reasons and they ‘delivered’ on all levels! First, while on the island we like to mix a few casual/reasonably priced restaurants in with more upscale/expensive ones. Second, we like to take a break from fresh fish entrees now and then. Verde Restaurant was a great choice! Service was friendly and efficient.... More
