We had a large group meal at Plantation Gardens restaurant. The setting is beautiful and the service was great. Unfortunately the food was just so-so. We really prefer all the other restaurants we visited when compared to Plantation Gardens.

The setting of this restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. The food was good except my husbands steak was to well done (he asked for medium well and it was more on the well side). Other than that the drinks and food were delicious!

Didn't try the restaurant but the free gardens are certainly worth a visit! A lovely stroll with interesting plants.

I don't think there is a children's menu per se. The food would suit any child who enjoys good quality food. It is a very quiet / "adult" style restaurant, so if you have boisterous small humans I'd recommend the Olympic... More

No, unfortunately they do not. The restaurant hours at 5:30pm-9:00pm. Out of everywhere we ate, by far our favorite dinner spot.

As the others have mentioned they can do a bigger group, just call them. You may want to ask to sit on the lanai or more inside, but still open air. Enjoy.

Plantation Gardens Restaurant & Bar is located in a beautifully restored plantation manor on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai. Dating back to the 1930's, the estate once served as the plantation manager's home for Hawaii's first sugar plantation, the Koloa plantation. Later, the estate was acquired by the Moir Family who built the world famous gardens that surround the restaurant. Our menu reflects the heritage of old plantation Hawaii, which celebrates the abundance and beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. Our fresh fish is caught daily by local fishermen in waters off Kauai. We use organically grown vegetables and herbs picked fresh on nearby farms and from our own gardens. Guests may choose to dine on our lanai overlooking tranquil gardens, lily ponds and tropical foliage or in our exquisitely refurbished dining room which features gorgeous Brazilian cherry wood floors, woven bamboo tables and plantation ceiling fans.
