The sunset crowd at The Beachhouse is very annoying. Everyone gets up from the tables and wanders around in front of you taking pictures. Then there are the professional picture takers just feet from your table. It turns into a circus. It wasn't that great as a romantic restaurant.

I had a dull and very disappointing meal at Tidepools. I also though the decor looked very faded and not well-kept. I liked the Princeville Resort- the Italian restaurant- La Cascada was very nice and romantic. Get reservations after sunset, so you can have drinks at the bar and watch the incredible sunset view from there.

I just got back from Kauai a few days ago (loved every minute, btw). We had dinner at the Beach House, and I really enjoyed it. I thought the food and service were wonderful, and the views at sunset were very nice. Yes, there are a lot of people hanging out on the lawn taking pics at sunset, but that lasts about 5-10 minutes. It didn't really bother me, but that's just me. I enjoy watching the silly things people do.

We also went to Plantation Gardens. Very nice, romantic restaurant with good service, great drinks. They do fish very well. I'm not a fish eater, so I didn't love my meal, but my husband enjoyed his (he had fish).

We stayed at the Hyatt, but did not eat at Dondero's or Tidepools. Tidepools looks very romantic. Prices are higher at the hotel, as you'd expect.

Whichever you choose, I wish you a wonderful trip!

Beth/JB1968, Thank you for your information. My husband loves fish but I don't care for it that much. The only way I really like fish is battered, deep fried with an inch of tartar sauce on top of it which isn't very healthy.

I will look up Inter Island Helicopter tours and make a reservation and see if Luka is still there.

I am getting very excited about our trip. We went to Hawaii in 1973 on our Honeymoon and I haven't been back since. My husband has been back but just on business. I am sure I won't recognize anything from 35 years ago. 11 weeks to go....

Voting with those that say:
Cafe Hanalei at the Princeville Resort.

Most for the most beautiful hotel view's I have ever seen!!! Food was wonderful too. But the views!!! It is the first place I think of when romance or beautiful views.

Definitely make this a must do for some point on your trip... and then report back to us. If you like spectacular views... you will not be disappointed.
