On our last trip to Hanalei, my wife had to stop at the Tahiti Nui. It's the Restaurant/bar that is in the movie "The Descendents". It wasn't too crowded and we recognized the inside from the movie. There wasn't anyone sitting at the bar where George Clooney and Beau Bridges sat in a scene in the movie, so we sat there and had our picture taken. We just had some drinks but the food looked good and was reasonably priced. We recommend stopping here if you're in the area. Everyone was nice and friendly and eager to start a conversation. It's a very laid back place.
