I have been a life long vegetarian (no fish and no meat) and have eaten all sorts of vegan / veggie food in all sorts of places. This place is over priced for the taste of the dishes. We tried 3 of the mains and only one was "ok". The rest were tiny portions on huge beds of lettuce. The falafel was ok. The veg wrap is tiny but the ingredients are ok. Stay away from the taco. The beans taste unfortunately like meat substitutes. Sadly this is the first listing on happy cow we were disappointed with.

Pros: Veggie, Fresh
Cons: Small portion, Overpriced, Iffy taste

Wonderful all vegan food in Kapaa

We had a great lunch here during our stay on Kauai. All items are made fresh here with each dish prepared for your order which means there is a 20-30 minute wait but so worth it. This is the only place we found here that was all vegan. So many great looking food, drink, and smoothie options it was hard to pick. We settled on the rainbow veggie wrap, guac and chips, and mint limeade. Overall, this meal was delicious and a great value especially compared to other eats on the island.

Only vegetarian restaurant on Kauai

We had a great lunch here. This is the only vegetarian restaurant on Kauai. Everything is vegan, organic and gluten free except for a bee pollen add on. Vegan dining options can be otherwise hard to find on Kauai. We had the nori roll, wrap, pizza and taco, plus a salad. We also had the chia pudding for dessert. All were nicely done. The owners were very gracious and friendly.

Pros: almost all vegan, friendly owners, fine food

By far the best raw food i have had in my life. Not only is it the best tasting but my body processes the food amazingly.

My dream comes true-A Raw Food Restaurant on Kauai

This is not just a raw food restaurant....its a VERY GOOD raw food restaurant. I am currently eating 75% raw, so I love having this place to go to for the freshest, healthiest way to eat on Kaua'i.
I was trained in raw food prep in Manhattan and this place is of a high caliber that would be well received anywhere. We are lucky to have Rainbow Living Foods. Like living in Kaua'i, its my dream come true!


Wonderful food and great atmosphere!

My husband and I went to Kaua'i for our honeymoon and, as vegans, were afraid we weren't going to be able to find much on the island. Boy, were we wrong!

Of all of the places we tried, we loved Rainbow Living Foods the most! There is a generous selection of entrees, desserts, and drinks so going there twice during our week there was wonderful!

There was only one very nice and friendly guy working both times we went, so it was a bit slow, but we didn't mind at all. The atmosphere is great and there is indoor and outdoor seating and you can even get your food to go and step right out to the beach to eat!

We tried the pizza, taco and falafel wrap as well as the fudge and energy balls for desserts and the Rainbow shake and banana nut milk shake for beverages - everything was amazing! The taco was our favorite, though. :)

I thought everything was reasonably priced ($10 for an entrée, $3-6 for dessert, around $6 for a large shake) considering the island has many expensive options.

This place has great food that makes you feel energized and filled but not overly full - so you can still go snorkeling or kayaking or hiking or whatever you have planned!

Hopefully this place will be around for a very long time. It deserves to be!

Pros: Reasonable prices, GREAT food, Nice atmosphere

The head chef was out, so it took a little while for our food to arrive, but it was a delicious light meal. If you have the chance, try the passionfruit mango pie.
I had the taco, my brother had the falafel, and his wife had the sprouted buckwheat pizza...all scrumptious.
Bear in mind, the milkshakes aren't frozen blended things. Ours was warm, but it still tasted divine and I will be recreating it when I get home. Also, if anyone manages to get the recipe for the pie, please share!

Pros: delicious, healthy, friendly
Cons: kinda hard to spot the place
