Went for late breakfast. Enjoyed the food. Server was a bit forgetful and had to come back to confirm order. Food was great so we are going for dinner as well.

Superb food in a casual, classy environment. Managed by a European Couple with years of experience in the culinary arts. A rare find in Kauai. Reasonable prices, good service - but do not expect McDonalds speed. It is a laid back style. Been going there...More

Most of the places in Kapaa seemed to be either fast food or chains. I prefer a local place to sit and eat if possible and Hemingway's fit the bill. They follow the farm-to-table restaurant model and our food was fresh, local and very affordable....More

My wife and I enjoyed two dinners and three breakfasts at this restaurant on the north side of Kapaa town. The food was delicious and extremely attractively presented. Service was impeccable and timely. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone without any reservations.

Really disappointing. The food was simply poorly prepared in about every way possible. Over cooked fish, inept seasoning of everything, and really really slow service. Apparently, Monday night is amateur night at this place. After reading the many good reviews we had high hopes for...More
