During our stay near Hanalei, we stopped for dinner at a small casual spot called Tahiti Nui. We discovered this place on Yelp, when we were trying to find nearby dinner spots. I decided to wear my new Hawaiian flower hair piece that I got in Maui made by a local artist named Leipua Flowers and just in case it gets a little chilly, my Lululemon Sun to Moon Scarf. I always travel with this scarf! It’s so easy to wear or pack in your bag and you can wear it 3 different ways (as a scarf, a wrap, and a poncho)!

One piece of interesting news about Tahiti Nui, is that it was part of a scene from the movie in the The Descendants with George Clooney.

Its right off the main highway in downtown Hanalei nestled at the edge of a beautiful mountain scene. We sat outside to enjoy the beautiful views. The waterfalls are breathtaking and were overflowing after the rainfall earlier that day.

Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. He came over to talk with us a lot and we learned about him as well! His name is Pat and he’s a local to Kauai. The food was awesome and super fresh with ingredients that were local to Kauai. The island of Kauai is known for its mahi-mahi and ahi tuna. R enjoyed the ahi tuna dish and I had the jumbo shrimp dish along with purple potatoes topped with macadamia nuts! Yum!
