We haven't been to Kauai for over 13 years and going for spring break this year. Bringing our 16 year old and 12 year old. I have read the recent reviews on restaurants from others and found them helpful. Thank you especially Kathryn. Below is a tentative itinerary and looking on where to buy fresh fish and local proteins and vegetables. We are staying in Lihue the first night as we fly from Calgary to Vancouver and then to Lihue. We don't arrive till 8:30 pm and not sure if we will need dinner. Next day we leave for a week in Princeville at our timeshare. Then back to Poipu for 2 night stay probably at Grand Hyatt.

The farmers markets were great before but kids will not want to drive to one every day. Which ones are the best for variety and open on Friday or Saturday so we can stock up?

We don't have a Costco membership but willing to get one if that will get us some good white wines especially Viognier, Albarino or Sancerre. Or will Longs, ABC or Foodland be okay?

Have booked Merrymans in Poipu for one night for sunset dinner. Thinking of St. Regis for adults only 1 night (looks similar to flying fish restaurant in Aruba)...Kids are not fish eaters or big on Asian (as one has allergy to all treenuts and sesame).

Like Hunt we will not want to drive far at night as we enjoy our wine too much. But will drive in the day..

Thanks in advance.
