Sunset Hot Spot

Very popular spot for weddings and sunset dining. Be aware that some tables may get more sun than you anticipated. A great tip is to order in the bar between their lunch and dinner service and then transition into dinner if you are feeling like extending your dining experience. I particularly enjoy... read more

Enjoyed our sunset dinner at the Beach House. Made a reservation before coming to Kauai. We were seated at a lovely lower level table with nothing between us and the beautiful view. Edwin, a server here for 21 years, did a great job! Ordered the watermelon salad and a sauteed local whitefish special that night. Both were excellent as well... More

Get there 30 minutes before 6 and take a seat at the bar (no reservations required). There are plenty of tables with great views of the sunset, and you can order off of the dinner menu here once service begins at 6. We ordered cocktails, the pork pupu, and split the island grown beets with vegetables and asparagus tempura. It... More

Stopped by on our way through the area. Very nice location. Service was excellent and food was good. Cannot get a better oceanfront view.

We stumbled on the Beach House Restaurant for happy hour and light pupus, also known as appetizers, but turned out to be the perfect place to watch the waves and sunset at a perfect time and moment. I love Ceviche anywhere I go, but this pupu and their homemade bread was all I needed. The menu is extensive for dinner... More

Have eaten there many times...lunch, dinner and cocktails. Have NEVER had a bad nor average meal. Excellent service, and great food with a Hawaiian flare. Views are stunning!

We have dined here many times over the past several years. Generally we have found the quality of the meals decreasing over time. Just seems a lack of flavor. Definitely a tourist spot, but a beautiful location. After decades of being "local and tourist friendly" the restaurant management has made their beautiful lawn KAPU (local for "Keep Off, no trespassing!!").... More

Good food and exceptional view during sunset. You may want to make reservations early enough to settle down and relax before sunset.

Okay, a lot of people have already said it and I'll repeat it for the umpteenth time -- The sunset view that this restaurant has is unbelievable but the food is just good. Spectacular food? No, but it is good to where you won't feel cheated with it being combined with the view. So why the negative? The food Service... More
