Glum faces all round. A couple of our fellow diners had issues, food quality for one and bill muck up for the other. Very cringey. Food was ok, my favorite food is Italian and this was below par for sure. We didn't stay for dessert and made a quick getaway. Food is pretty pricey, no value for money and not a pleasant place to spend our first night on the beautiful island of Kauai.
Highlight was the live harp music and the ocean view. We ate at this restaurant on the 7th night of our stay at the Kauai Marriott Resort.
Start with the calamari and save room for the fresh catch at Lihue's Duke's Canoe Club Kauai? this Lihue seafood spot has quite the selection. The cooks at. Duke's Kauai. Menu. Food & Drink. Rice Street, Lihue, HI Rice Street, Lihue Directions. + View Website. View Menu.
It is on the hotel properetyat the extreme end of the beach.. It has a romantic view of the beach and has a traditional Northern Italian cuisine. The service was prompt and and friendly. The seafood we ate was divine. I had a salmon dinner with encrusted macadamia nuts and my wife ate a shrimp dish.
We do not consume alcoholic beverages , but ordered 2 virgin pinas. They were very good as well. I guess you have to splurge once in a while. We marched off to our room as I sung Bandiera Rossa, an old song of the Italian working class during the fight against Mussolini. This is a must when going to Kauai.
Please come and enjoy the gentle tradewinds and enjoy a classic dining experience.

Kauai is simply stunning! In the retail store, you can purchase made-in-Hawaiian gourmet goodies such as chocolate, macadamia nuts and pancake mix. The staff were attentive and seemed to be enjoying the night as much as we were. Maui, in particular, can be difficult to score a good priceline deal. You either love a luau or you LOVE a luau. No rice.. During the s, the sugar production would be stopped in the island, with a magnificent golf course planned on the former plantation of Puakea, which would be struck with a hurricane in , called Iniki.

Reviewed 23 September We had a very vivacious and young server who was filled with energy.
She was happy and positive, making our dining experience extra special. The salad bar is an island favorite! The fish was very good but could have used more sauce that night and a prior one on this vacation. The rice was excellent!
Also I do love the hula pie for dessert. I would be extra pleased if Dukes added various sorbets on the dessert menu. Those would give that part of the meal more variety. All in all our experience at Dukes is always fun and satisfying. We always go back!! Wonderful food and atmosphere.
I would recommend this restaurant. Steak was overcooked but MBr. Great salad bar.
Ordered the sesame ginger Ono. Driest fish I have ever eaten. Had to add soy sauce and lemon to choke it down. My husband and I stopped in here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! The dinner was fabulous. We were seated right be the ocean side. We couldn't have gotten better seats had we asked for them. The waitress gave us a complimentary dessert to celebrate! I would definitely come back to Dukes if we get back to Kauai again! Had a food allergy issue and checked before ordering.
Food came all good but after about 30 min, the allergy popped up.
We talked with a manager to discuss the allergy issue but still stated that it was cooked as designed. Tad bit disappointed since we have always had great dinners at Dukes. What is not to like! We had a beautiful view, delicious food, good service, and great drinks! Perfect service and meal was great! Loved the atmosphere. We had a marvelous dinner. One of our group has allergies, the staff was very attentive and accommodating. The meals were presented beautifully, and tasted great.
The ocean view was an added plus. My wife and I went to Dukes to celebrate her birthday and anniversary. The young ladies who greeted us upfront were very nice. Once seated, our server; Kevin, made our dining experience a very positive and memorable one. The food was outstanding and both my wife and I enjoyed ourselves. This first experience is one we will never forget and we will most definitely recommend this restaurant to others. Thank you! I have been visiting Kauai for over 20 years and have never had a bad meal or piece of fresh fish until my meal at Duke's.
The salad bar was acceptable but too many salads with too much mayo. One was over cooked, dry and terrible seasoning. I had one on Saturday at portofino next door and it was delicious. I will never go back to Dukes. Food is great, service and ambiance too. Opakapaka was on the menu which made our whole week. So good! The atmosphere was pleasant and the food was good.
