We discovered JO2 Natural Cuisine almost by accident. While driving north from Poipu to Princeville, we checked into options in Kapaa Town. Having eaten many times in Kapaa, we decided to try a new place. Rated # 1 in Kapaa, how could we go wrong?...More

This is a must go on your trip to Kauai. Beautiful fresh food and the best cocktails I’ve had on the island. It’s difficult to find places that aren’t too touristy and that have truly delicious food or cocktails that aren’t filled with sugar in...More

A special occasion restaurant. Fresh tasty appetizers. Tempura green beans were a highlight. Inventive foods served with flair. Great dessert options. Service was attentive. The resturant is in a small strip center. Parking was difficult. Understated decor. Seating was a little cramped.
