Tidepools Review

Of the Grand Hyatt's many notable restaurants Tidepools is definitely the most tropical and campy, sure to appeal to folks seeking a bit of island-style romance and adventure. Private grass-thatch huts seem to float on a koi-filled pond beneath starry skies while torches flicker in the lushly landscaped grounds nearby. The equally distinctive food has an island flavor that comes from the chef's advocacy of Hawaii Regional Cuisine and extensive use of Kauai-grown products including fresh herbs from the resort's organic garden. You won't go wrong ordering the soy-ginger glazed catch of the day, macadamia-nut crusted mahimahi, or the wasabi-crusted beef filet. Start with jumbo lump crab cakes or heirloom tomato salad to wake up your taste buds. The roasted peach tart with macadamia nut ice cream is a memorable dessert.

    Great Romantic Spot

    We enjoyed this quaint restaurant on the lagoon of the Grand Hyatt. The food was great, you must get the Kauai corn chowder soup...it was wonderful. Our fish dishes were tasty and cooked perfectly. Great choice for dinner.

    Excellent dining experience

    Tidepools is one of best restaurants on Kauai. It is elegant but family friendly. The food is pricey but worth it. The service is polite, unhurried (they don't rush you, but they get food and drinks out in a timely manner) and knowledgable. The surroundings are gorgeous.

    Wonderful Atmosphere with good food and service.

    This restaurant was recommended by a daughter who went here on her honeymoon. I can see how it was so memorable, even after nine years. It was beautiful, winding around a koi pond, and very open and tropical. Our service was good, though not great, and our food was excellent.
