We are repeat visitors here, and this meal was, as always, truly memorable.
Food is beautifully prepared and tastes wonderful. Staff is friendly and attentive.
But the setting is unique... Very Polynesian, with rooms connected over a gorgeous koi pond environment.
Unforgettable experiance.

Called for reservations as we were not staying at this resort. They asked if we were coming to celebrate a special occasion. When informed , yes, were told we would have a table by the water which we did. Beautiful setting. Food presented beautifully and everything was very good. They even presented us with a complementary dessert for our anniversary. The only thing keeping me from awarding 5 stars....our waiter, who was very nice, gave FAR more attention to a neighboring table. I believe they were hotel guests and there were 5 or six of them. ( way bigger tip than for 2) We ate another time at a different resort and while not guests were treated as if we were. It just makes a big difference.

The food was fabulous. We both had the signature dish, macadamian crusted mahi. Just perfect. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend.

Excellent food and presentation with superb service. The only drawback was the ultra-high wine prices. The cost of the food I can see - it is excellent. But I would think Hyatt could command a cost that would allow them to price their wine a little more appropriately. We had two appetizers each. I had the Tai ginger soup and the scallops. My wife had a salad and the best pork belly dish she has ever had. Four smallish appetizers a glass and a bottle of wine with tip was an even $200.

Had a table right next to the "window" and it felt like you were floating on the water. Many Koi fish to watch swim by. The food and service were excellent. Mentioned that it was an anniversary dinner in our reservation and we were treated to a free dessert. I would definitely visit this unique open-air restaurant again when in Kauai.
