A Delicious Kauai Dining Experience
Hanalei Colony offers two dining venues serving up everything from on-the-go morning espresso to elegant oceanfront dining at one of Kauai’s top-rated restaurants.
The charming Napali Art Gallery & Coffee Shop starts your day with coffee, espresso, and pastries as well as mid-day snacks to go. The tiny shop also offers a wonderful array of art and jewelry by local artisans, such as hand-blown glass, koa woodcraft, ceramics, paintings, and jewelry featuring local sea glass and the treasured pearl-like shells of Niihau, the island situated off Kauai’s western shore.
The acclaimed Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant offers lunch and dinner in a truly breathtaking beachfront setting. The restaurant opened in 2006 and immediately claimed the honor of “Best New Restaurant On Kauai” in Honolulu Magazine’s prestigious Annual Hale ‘Aina culinary awards. Since then, The Mediterranean Gourmet has continued to rank each year as one of the island’s top three restaurants.
Inspired by the cuisine and culture of his Lebanese roots, Chef Imad Beydoun and his wife Yarrow have created a truly international dining experience, with menu selections featuring Greek, French, and Middle Eastern influences, as well as fresh local fish and Pacific Rim favorites.
Order a picnic lunch and head to the beach, or indulge in the restaurant’s Romantic Dinner for Two, set in a private alcove with your own dedicated waitperson. Enjoy the Hanalei By The Sea Luau on Tuesday evenings, featuring a traditional Hawaiian dinner and show in this intimate, oceanfront setting. The Mediterranean Gourmet also offers off-site catering and dining arrangements for special events.
