A common theme among the Grand Hyatt restaurants is the service and Tidepools was no different. The menu had an excellent selection of seafood as well as steak if you wanted. Very cool atmosphere with the coy pond. Great views as well.

We thought this would be the best restaurant of our stay. Not so. For the price it was insanely overpriced. We had better food at the Beach House and Keoki’s. Overpriced for the value. Not going back.

We celebrated our anniversary at Tidepools and had a beautiful experience. Our waiter, Kekoa, was excellent, explained the menu and engaged in touristy conversation. The food and presentation were awesome! We look forward to our next visit, it was a great way to celebrate!

Embrace the tempting combination of contemporary Hawaiian cuisine served in a unique Hawaiian setting. Thatched-roof bungalows float above a koi-filled lagoon at the base of a waterfall to create romantic ambiance. Inspired by local ingredients and the rich culinary traditions of Hawaii.
