Tahiti Nui: "Great Local Bar" Tahiti Nui Tip by tfulle01

Tahiti Nui, Kauai: 1 reviews and 0 photos

I didn't eat anything there, so I'm not going to comment on the food, but the place was great as far as atmosphere goes. I'm not one to hang out with all the other tourists so you won't find me at the "Resort Bar". I feel that the only way to truly experience a location is through its people and if you are staying on the North Shore of Kaua'i this is a great place to start. It is relaxed, casual and they serve great drinks and have a few good beers on tap. There is Karaoke or live music every night. I stopped in there one night and ended up coming back 2 more times and I was only in Kauai for 5 nights. Most nights you'll find Darcel tending the bar, her and her husband own the place. She may seem a little cold when you first meet her, but if you give her some time and the respect that she and all local peoples (anywhere) deserve then she'll be a great host.
