Tidepools at the Hyatt, Kauai

The Tidepools restaurant in the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Resort is a magical place.  We dined here on our honeymoon, and we decided that this is the place that we wanted to eat at to celebrate of 25th wedding anniversary.  A cluster of pod like buildings with open windows all the way around and in the middle open up to the beautiful Koi pond. 

Here is another view of the restaurant, and you can see the open windows on the sides

For an appetizer, I had Hamachi & Compressed Watermelon, with a white soy vinaigrette, with jalapenos and a Lychee martini

For my entree, I had Filet of Beef, with caramelized onions on the top and veggies on the bottom - so delicious

Here's the Koi that gathered outside our window

The sun was setting about the time we received our cocktails

Hamachi - so colorful.

This dish was completely overpowered by the jalapeno, so I removed those, and ate it with the remaining elements, and the flavors were melt in your mouth delicious

The perfectly cooked filet of beef, with caramelized onions in a balsamic base, with mashed potatoes and spinach

A lovely tower of deliciousness - savory and divine.  Here is more information about the restaurant on yelp


  1. It's been a long time, but I've been there. What a delicious meal and special way to celebrate your anniversary!

  2. O. M. G. The setting is simply gorgeous and the food looks amazing. If it is even half as good as it looks you must have swooned. Thanks for these beautiful photos of it all!
