The locovore movement is hot in Hawaii, and has rapidly gained momentum over the years leading to new farm to table restaurants to be established all over Kauai. All around the island restaurants that feature a menu with locally grown fruits and vegetables, and locally raised fish and meats can be found. While several offer local food at the casual level, many restaurants combine gourmet cooking with locally grown foods. From the lush North Shore to the sunny south side, farm to table restaurants decorate the island.
Out in Lihue, the busiest part of the island, is Gaylord's at Kilohana. A lovely farm to table restaurant offering dancing under the stars on a historic plantation, Gaylord's is a long standing eatery that has evolved with Kauai's sustainable needs. Nearby on the South Side is Merriman's. Making a home across from the ocean on the sunny and dry side of the island, this is another eatery that focuses on locally sourced ingredients.
The lush North Shore is home to farm to table restaurants including the Kilauea Fish market as well as the Hanalei Dolphin, both offering an abundance of fresh local fish.
