The food is affordable (portions are big enough to share with an average appetite; check out what surrounding tables are having to decide whether that works for you), and the views are great! This has been a favorite place of ours for several years now, and I've hesitated to write much about it because the seating is limited and I want a table! Hanalei is definitely getting overcrowded, and Neide's is part of that.

Right at the base of a field leading up to the jungle is Needed restaurant.
Food is good overall but the reason to come here is for the Brazilian specialty Moqueca. It is unique and fantastic. A sauce and seasoning that stands apart from every other dish on the island.
Service is reliable though on island time so relax when u go.
Tip: bring bug spray, you are at the jungle at night, so be prepared.
We spray up and are fine all night.

The inauthentic food is bland and boring. Had a green salad, vegetarian crepe, 1 beer, and the Churrasco platter - $61.00. The salad was limp. The special dressing, not so special. The crepe was smothered in sauce and covered in cheese, the meats were poor quality and the rice and beans were not seasoned. The owner might be Brazilian but doesn't do the cooking. Terrible and overpriced. Not really sure where the good reviews are coming from.

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 who lives there was delightful to feed, pet and watch. The food was expensive and the quality was hit and miss. There where four people in our party two of us loved the food and the other two felt the food too expensive and the quality was average. The nachos were prepared in such a way that most of the chips were soggy and the fish tacos were ok but both of the individuals who ate the tacos felt very sick later that night. The tacos were priced on the menu as market value. We made the mistake of not confirming the price and were shocked when charged $20 for two tacos. Two of us ordered the fish with coconut tomato sauce and loved the complex balanced flavors. The fish was well prepared and a large portion priced at $28. If you choose to eat at this restaurant, be prepared for the high price mixed quality of meals and an amazing view.
