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.
