This restaurant was recommended by some locals. Verde is very small but the portions are large (except the chips &salsa). If you want more chips and salsa , it will cost you extra. The food was awesome but rather expensive.

Had a few suggestions for Mexican in Kapaa but after seeing that they do locally produced fresh food we decided to try verde. Staff was friendly and seated us quickly, food came quickly and was delicious and fresh. The tacos are filling and tasty and the taco salad was crisp and fresh. Would go again without question.

This restaurant is just in a strip mall, but it is a great place. We really enjoyed the food, and the wat staff was always very helpful.

The fresh catch of the day was a chipotle seasoned mahi mahi. It made the most beautiful flavorful fish taco ever. Try their special iced tea. A very special and refreshing flavor combination (albeit a bit expensive). The service is friendly and accommodating. They do a good job with meeting gluten free needs. Go early as they tend to fill... More

Well, maybe not but it sure was good! Stopped in after helicopter ride to one of the few places open on Sunday--was not disappointed. I had beef burrito-wet--which was good. Wife had ahi tacos and she outordered me...Again. We will be back for more ahi!

OMG, I’m so glad I found this place! Everything that came out of that kitchen looked and smelled incredible, and the portions were generous. Service was swift and friendly. I especially loved the selection of sauces--their salsa was divine, but they also smothered just about everything in New Mexican chile sauce (red and/or green),and offered their own house-made hot sauce...

The staff provided excellent service, making sure that I was aware that what I had ordered was going to be spicy. That was ok with me. Very flavorful and large portions. Really enjoyed my meal.

We arrived early as heard it got busy, and it did. I ordered fish tacos, they were huge, stuffed, excellent. Local fish, great sauce added. My husband had a shrimp burrito that he devoured, and raved about. Very low key, reasonable prices.

I went here with a large group and thought the wait staff was great. Very helpful and accommodating. It got crowded and I never felt rushed after most of us had finished eating. I had a garlic shrimp taco and an ultimate chicken taco. The shrimp taco was amazing but the chicken taco was even better. They were a little... More

It was a real surprise to find great green chili based foods in Kapaa. Not quite Santa Fe, but close enough. The fresh fish entrees were outstanding, and brought us back repeatedly. This turned out to be our most common food stop during our Kauai stay.
