Fodor's Expert Review Tidepools

$$$$ The South Shore Seafood

Of the Grand Hyatt's many notable restaurants, Tidepools is definitely the most tropical and campy, with private grass-thatch huts that 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 island-grown products including fresh herbs from the resort's organic garden. You won't go wrong ordering the Maui venison loin with fig au jus, macadamia-nut-crusted mahimahi, or the Hawaiian catch, with its medley of local lobster, fish, shrimp, and scallops. Start with the Kauai shrimp, ahi tempura and spicy poi, or Tahitian ceviche to wake up your taste buds. The fried malasada with salted caramel and chocolate sauce is a memorable dessert.
