Red Salt, Poipu Beach, Kauai

Red Salt is in the Koa Kea Hotel and Resort, which is wedged between the Kiahuna and the Marriott.  Inside it is modern, simple and beautiful.  Our table was by a curved window that looked out onto the pool and ocean.  It was a lovely setting.  Many people recommended this restaurant to us, so we canceled our previous reservation at a restaurant, with not so good reviews on yelp, and dined here.

They had a long narrow table with these glass bulbs on them.  The restaurant served the most delicious rolls with unsalted butter and a little container of red salt to crumble onto your roll. Nice touch.

One of the most brilliant choices on the cocktail menu were a flight of martini's.  There were 6-7 fabulous martini's to choose from.  I can't remember what they all were, but I loved the one in the front, with blueberries on the stick.  I went so far as to order one of these in the regular size.  Oh my! 

Dinner was amazing.  Mahi Mahi on black forbidden rice with avocado on the top. A wonderful blending of flavors, and then a drink of the blueberry martini - oooohhh, the icing on the cake.  Too stuffed for dessert.

Look at this - a real linen coaster for my cocktail - pretty classy!
