This is the most thoughtfully written restaurant review book I've seen in a long time, and it serves the Kauai visitor well. It's written in an unprentious, fun, and knowledgeable manner, making it a joy to read and utilize on the trip. We truly enjoyed using it as our sole dining guide, and if we spotted a place that wasn't reviewed in the book, we didn't bother with it, because the authors included only those restaurants that they felt from their research were worth including. Of the restaurants we visited, the reviews were spot-on - as a result, if we skipped a place that looked appealing but wasn't in the book, we didn't feel like we'd missed out on anything. The reviews cover several price ranges and food types, and the extras, like 'He Said, She Said, We Said', 'Island Cuisine,' and the glossary are delightful --as well as useful-- additions. This is the only restaurant guide you'll need for your trip to Kauai!

A friend recommended this line of books to me and when I saw they had a new book out which coincided with my family's trip to Kauai I had a copy overnighted. Now that we have been back for a couple days I can say GET this book. This books first line 'eat to live or live to eat' says it all. To me there is virtually no better way to experience a place then to eat with the local people and this book will lead you to some great spots. I am still thinking about the Samimin noodle soup at Hamura's or the hollandaise sauce from The Eggbert and of course Sushi Bushido, I don't even know where you can get sushi like that on the mainland. Wow is all I have to say!!

This title has been honored by approval for the system-wide order list used by Hawaii's public libraries when making acquisitions. In these challenging economic times such decisions aren't taken lightly.

These authors have done an excellent job of sorting the dining needs for you. They have written many guides for several years and they constantly keep you updated on the information. Every time I read one of their books I get the feeling that they are truly enjoying the dining themselves so I KNOW I would definitely have a pleasurable experience! I think they should be 'top-of-the-list' for travelers to the islands.
