Kauai - need restaurant location for 60-70 people with great food and wine!
Hi guys

Any suggestions on where to have a party (preferably on the water) to accommodate 60-70 people in Kauai? I tried the beach house restaurant but the prices were ridiculous! We're looking for a restaurant with great food and wine, and the ability to play an iPod...

Any ideas???

Did a quick google search and found this, might be worth looking into:

You can try this site:

On the left side menu:

Click on:

Kauai north Shore Restaurants (also East Shore & South/West Shore)

Scroll down to Wedding/Receptions

You may want to check with the Hyatt or even Duke's.

I'd say Kauai Pasta but it may not hold 60-70 people.

Check with Mediterrean Gourmet in Haena. When we were there last year, they were having a wedding reception in a room next to the main room. There were at least 50 people there.

Aloha from Princeville...

I gotta add my 2 cents. Even though I _love_ Mediterranean Gourmet and dine their often, for a party of this size I'd urge you to call Hukilau Lanai in Kapa`a:

Truly great menu and wine list, plus it's centrally located, and has ample parking for a crowd.

It's not on the water, but close -- and the food and drink will MORE than make up for the lack of nearby beach! :-D

Thanks heaps for your input guys! Do you have any thoughts on Gaylords restaurant at Kilohana Plantation???

Aloha from Princeville...

Big thumbs UP for Gaylord's...especially good when a big group like yours can book their private dining room, with its beautiful antique furnishings!

AuntieM...Doesn't the same group own both Gaylord's and HukiLau?

Is Mema's still open?

Could you play me a song!!!

auntiemaria Oct 21st, 2008 06:44 PM

Gyppielou -- give me a song title or singer, and I'll play it for you on my show tomorrow! 8-)

Kal -- Hukilau got new ownership earlier this year...kept all the cooks and the great menu, too.

Sherri1 -- yes, Mema's Thai is still open.

Harfy -- let us know how the dinner party went, 'kay?

gyppielou Oct 21st, 2008 06:49 PM

Cheers to you AuntieM

The award-winning island musician, Del Beazley, did a great &quot;cover&quot; of this song -- so I'll play his version on my show today. It's from this CD:

And the show is broadcast online live, too -- 7-9am HST Wednesdays and Fridays -- on KKCR Kaua`i Community Radio:

Tune in, if you can! 8-)

Contact the local &quot;DMC&quot; Destination Management Company. Any hotel can give you a recommendation. They specialize in finding this sort of request for corporate meetings - they should be &quot;up&quot; on all the best on the island.

Mahalo Auntie,

Good music
Good times

I hope Harfy found the place for a memorable celebration!
