Restaurants near St. Regis Princeville

I know there are some good restaurants (like Merriman and Plantation Gardens) near Popui area. But are there any good fine-dining restaurants and lunch spots near this hotel? I have a rental car but I would rather not drive >30-40 min to get something decent to eat.

Plantation Gardens Restaurant
2253 Poipu Road, Koloa, HI 96756

      The Tavern by Roy Yamaguchi is probably the best, but Mediterranean Gourmet and Bar Acuda in Hanalei are not bad.

      5-7132 Kuhio Hwy, Hanalei, HI 96714

        I would so go there if I went to Kauai. I got the neatest poster for it when I was dining there and went back into the office (@the original).

      2. The peripatetic Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Kauai Grill is at the St. Regis. I have not been and found no reports on this board; reviews elsewhere are mixed.
