Delicious but sizes were a little small and it was EXPENSIVE! Maybe "pregame" with your own bottle of wine at the beach with someone special...(I guess that is not very classy of me to sya though, haha)

We arrived at our hotel-the Sheraton Kauai, and were tired from an almost full day of travel, so we decided to eat at Rumfire that night. Great service from Leslie, delicious food (especially the fried Brussel Sprouts starter) and a great view of the ocean at sunset. The next night we had reservations at Rumfire for their Thanksgiving buffet. Great... More

Truly enjoyed our night out at Rumfire, which came highly recommended from the Ultimate Kaua'i Guidebook. We dug the modern & LED lit decor, the curved and private sunken booths for couples, and the seaside facing windows that, on any other night sans a tropical rainstorm, would've been open. We didn't like so much that the place was doused in... More

Ate twice at RumFire. Both times food was really well prepared and service was most professional. And sunset was the icing on the cake. Menu is varied but local fresh seafood is really great.

We were staying there at the Sheraton in Poipu. Very beautiful grounds, very clean, great service from everyone. We just had cocktails at RumFire sitting outside and also serviced poolside. If we had more time there we would've eaten dinner there. But we were out and about eating local food on this trip.

We own restaurants, and have visited hundreds of them. We also love Kauai, and have been here 10 times. We thought we'd try something new, but never again. It started with a surly hostess who made no attempt to welcome us or even tell us what to do when we came at our reserved time. We were seated in a... More

Though coming to Kauai for decades, we have never been to Rum Fire. Reviews have been consistently positive (though frequently criticized for too loud), so gave it a try this trip. We did not find it loud (try Josselyns Tapas for loud) & guitarist playing tonight was lovely Wait staff was awesome (thanks Debby)' who was alert to an allergy... More

Good service, nice view. Meals are expensive for what you are given, small portion of fish. $4.50 for an iced tea, really! They did acknowledge that we were having our 10 year anniversary and gave us a complimentary dessert.

We ate at RumFire on four separate occasions. It's not cheap, but the food is of a high quality. The service is very attentive but not obtrusive. The fish dishes were always of a high quality. My husband had one failure - a rack of lamb that under cooked for high liking.

Rum Fire is a nicely situated restaurant at the Sheraton on the beach in Poipu. Its not as close to the water as some photos lead you to believe but it still is a nice spot, especially if you are staying on-site. Wine list was decent with ample selections. Appetizer choices didn't leap out at us. The recommended Brussels sprouts... More
