Serving up fresh seafood and island-inspired fare in a beautiful outdoor dining area surrounded by exotic scented flowers, tropical cascading pools, and lush foliage, Keoki’s Paradise is the quintessential Hawai‘i dining experience. Located in the Poipu Shopping Village on the sunny south shore of Kaua‘i, this family restaurant is popular with locals and visitors alike thanks to friendly service, a relaxed island atmosphere, and simply delicious food. For a tropical dining treat between Kauai activities, you have to try Keoki’s!
Island Style at Keokis Paradise
Using only fresh caught local fish from Hawaiian waters, locally grown produce, and responsibly raised meats, you can be sure you are getting the finest ingredients in every delicious bite. Pupus (appetizers) start your meal out on the right foot, with delicious offerings like Short Rib Bao with succulent meat on a pillowy Asian dumpling, Spicy Thai Shrimp, and the Poke Stack with fresh ahi tuna, shaved jalapenos, and fresh avocado and cucumber. For entrees, Keoki’s is famous for their fabulous and always fresh seafood. Try the seasonal fish “Keoki Style” baked with garlic, lemon, and a tomato gastrique, or splurge with roasted lobster tails or the savory risotto with chardonnay and herbs.
Steaks and Favorites
Keoki does more than just fish, however. Their prime rib is a weekend favorite, and the filet mignon rubbed with sea salt and served with an onion crème and gremolata butter simply melts in your mouth. Vegetarian options are not just limited to Keoki’s epic salads – try the Dinosaur Kale with goat cheese and figs, trust us – you can also eat like royalty with the Roasted Red Pepper Tofu, served with vegetables braised in coconut milk. Servers are happy to accommodate dietary restrictions, and several gluten conscious items are available.
The fun atmosphere extends from the beautiful outdoor dining area to the ever-popular Bamboo Bar, home to the daily Aloha Hour (3-5pm, 9:30-10:30pm). Unwind with your favorite ice cold local beer, craft cocktail, or select wines, and scarf down delicious island-inspired bar food like hand crafted nachos with slow-roasted kalua pork, fire roasted vegetable dip with herb flatbread, and fresh sushi. The bar menu includes a wonderful selection of fresh fish dishes, from tacos to fish and chips, and Keoki’s delicious sandwiches include the Rancher’s Burger with smoked bacon and garlic aioli, a prime rib sandwich that melts in your mouth, and the spicy and delicious Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich with kim chee slaw and gochujang aioli.
Fun for the whole family, come see why Keoki’s Paradise is an island favorite!
