The fish and chips at this restaurant are delicious. There is a sauce that they serve with their fish that is to die for.....wish I had the recipe! This is a friendly, easy place to go and relax. It seemed to be one of the few places open at night in Hanalei to get something to eat.

Ate here twice. Very fresh ingredients. Great service. The Moa (chicken) ginger sandwich was very tasty. The chicken salad boat was substantial but could have used some onion-a little bland. Very welcoming place-try it!

Hanalei Gourmet's Big Moe's Hamburger is great. We also had the Lanalei chicken and eggplant sandwich. The chicken is good but the eggplant sandwich was not good. This is a great lunch spot in the center of the town with an open air type restaurant.

Our 3 generations of family visited in May. The cashier was friendly and gave great recommendations. We enjoyed the fried ono sandwich, a Rueben, chicken salad sandwich, a salad, and a great burger... Forgot the names of everything but it was all very delicious and fresh!

The Hanalei Gourmet is in the old school house in the center of Hanalei. It is excellent for a casual lunch. They have a wide variety is sandwiches and salads, ant the portions are generous.

We had mussel appetizer-very good. Then used the rest of the sauce for dipping things into! Salad entrees are delicious and super good value. I had the salad with grilled vegetables and had blackened catch of the day on top. I think the cost was $16. My husband enjoyed his dinner as well. Definitely recommend.

Been coming here for years. Every time I have a chance to get back to beautiful Kauai! Well, my favorite dish you can probably guess...the Waldorf! Crisp greens, green apples, caramelized walnuts and Gorgonzola with their homemade mango vinaigrette dressing. Mind you, it's huge but they do offer 1/2 orders. Also recommended Asian Style Crab Cakes, and the Beer Battered... More

It's a little pricey even for lunch (sandwiches and burgers $10-$15) but the portion is hefty and the food is good. Beautiful setting in Hanalei and convenient parking.
