Best Places to Eat in Waimea, Kauai

Packed Hawaiian food

A day out on Na Pali Coast will certainly work up a healthy appetite. After 5 hours of riding on the coast, zipping in and out of sea caves and snorkeling at Nualolo, you will be ready to chow down! Waimea is the town right before Kikialoa Boat Harbor and has tons of great options to eat at that will satisfy everyone in your group.

Island Taco is a Pirate Captains favorite! They offer a variety of different kinds of tacos, from pulled pork to cajun fish. Enjoy your taco or burrito with a side of chips, salsa and a nice cold beverage.

For an authentic Hawaiian plate lunch, head over to Ishihara Market. They have the best poke on island. The staff behind the counter is super friendly, and will give you samples from the deli and recommendations on what is fresh that day. You can also pick up any groceries you need at this market.

For something a little more hardy, head over to The Saddle Room, adjacent to Wrangler’s Steakhouse in Waimea. Only open Thursday – Sunday, this hole in the wall dive-bar has the best burger on Kauai, not to mention their drinks are pretty great too!
