Haena offers two dining venues serving up everything from on-the-go morning espresso to elegant oceanfront dining at one of Kauai’s top-rated restaurants.
The acclaimed Mediterranean Gourmet restaurant offers lunch and dinner in a truly breathtaking beachfront setting. The restaurant opened in 2006 and immediately claimed the honor of “Best New Restaurant On Kauai” in Honolulu Magazine’s prestigious Annual Hale ‘Aina culinary awards. Since then, The Mediterranean Gourmet has continued to rank each year as one of the island’s top three restaurants.
Inspired by the cuisine and culture of his Lebanese roots, Chef Imad Beydoun and his wife Yarrow have created a truly international dining experience, with menu selections featuring Greek, French, and Middle Eastern influences, as well as fresh local fish and Pacific Rim favorites. The food is delicious!
The charming Napali Art Gallery & Coffee Shop starts your day with coffee, espresso, and pastries as well as mid-day snacks to go. The tiny shop also offers a wonderful array of art and jewelry by local artisans, such as hand-blown glass, koa woodcraft, ceramics, paintings, and jewelry featuring local sea glass and the treasured pearl-like shells of Niihau, the island situated off Kauai’s western shore.
You might plan on staying in Haena vacation rental or perhaps somewhere in the nearby towns of Hanalei, Princeville, Anini or Kilauea. There are great accommodations to choose from and lots of fun things to do. You will have so much fun.
