Keoki’s Paradise, an “island fish and steak” restaurant, is located in the same complex as the Poipu Shopping Village. It was styled to resemble a dockside boathouse, and there was a lagoon with lush foliage all around, a thatched roof and colorful Polynesian atmosphere. This place was packed! So we were required to wait for approximately 15-20 minutes for our table, but luckily the host provided us with a pager so that we could stroll the village while we waited.
We ordered a couple dishes to share: Ribs & Chicken ($22.95) – A combination of their Koloa Pork Ribs (slow cooked imu style, with plum barbecue sauce) and Teriyaki Chicken; served with basmati rice pilaf and Keoki’s Caesar Salad. We also opted for one of their Hui Platters – Tasters For Two: Kai-Sea ($15.95) – A tasting platter to share, consisting of scallops with veggies, a crab cake over soba noodles, and Thai shrimp. Overall, the food was flavorful and the service was great, but we felt the dishes were overpriced, and it was catered to tourists. The restaurant did provide an enchanting atmosphere!
