You are in Kauai and you are looking for a romantic place to have dinner. Why not dine in a bungalow that sits atop a koi pond that is surrounded by beautiful waterfalls? If this sounds like something out of a travel commercial, bear in mind that you are in Hawaii, the honeymoon capital of the world. Tidepools Restaurant in Kauai offers just such a setting and some fabulous food to go along with it.
The bungalows are located right on the manmade pond of the opulent hotel. The food is very fresh, and much of it is locally sourced. The menu is primarily comprised of meat and seafood, but they do offer some lighter fare. They also have an impressive wine list and a waitstaff that is well versed in pairing wine with food.
