Verde Restaurant is a highly-rated new Mexican-style cantina located in a strip shopping center in Kapaa, Kauai. Despite the rather modest location, it’s one of the top-rated restaurants in Kapaa, and for good reason. The restaurant features classic Mexican dishes such as tacos, burritos and enchiladas infused with fresh ingredients and new takes. We ordered the stacked enchiladas on a recent visit and they were unlike any enchiladas we’ve had before. The enchiladas were packed so full of Makaweli Kaua’i beef they almost resembled a plate of lasagna (photo below). And they were delicious! Other popular dishes include garlic shrimp burritos and the al pastor tacos with citrus charred pork, pico de gallo and cilantro. A nice selection of margaritas, Mexican beers, bottled beers, and a few wine choices round out the menu nicely.
Verde is open daily 11AM to 9PM. Expect a wait in the evening as this is a very popular restaurant.
