MUST IF YOU ARE IN KAUA'I! This restaurant - Ahhhh- I want to go back to Kaua'i just to eat here again. The location is beautiful. My boyfriend and I went 2/5 nights we were on the island. First time we enjoyed some delicious Poki and sipped on their amazing Mai Tais. My favorite meal was the Macadamia Nut buttered... More

This restaurant has possible the best view on the island, at least during our dinning experience. Highly suggest you make reservations in advance so that you can dine at a table close to the open windows and time it around sunset for the ending of great meal. Our meals were great and reasonably priced for the area.

Don't come if you are budget conscious, as this is high end dining. Yet, I would suggest you save your pennies elsewhere and come for this experience!! The food was amazingly scrumptious, servers were very attentive, and the view spectacular. We were in Kauai 7 days and this place was my favorite hands down!

We have been to the Beach House on each trip to Kauai. It is a great lunch spot since it is pretty reasonably priced, and a great spot to watch surfing. We were there with a large group this time, and everyone agreed that the afternoon was lovely. The service was great, food was delicious, and the view topped everything... More

I first came here two years ago and absolutely loved it. For this trip, I came here on my last night. It is one of those places that just can't be missed when you're visiting Kauai!! Make sure you make reservations so that you don't miss out on a chance at having a meal here. That is just absolutely can... More

View and atmosphere is amazing. My meal, however, was a huge disappointment. The "macadamia nut crusted" mahi mahi was a rubbery piece of fish with a soggy pile of crushed nuts on top. For the correct preparation of this dish go to Roy's or Duke's. Also, the wine list was a complete rip off. I expect to pay at least... More

My husband and his family have many family memories of trips to Kaua'i when they were growing up & later with his brother's very young children. We are now privileged to be here again on a family vacation with my husband, myself, & his brother, his wife, & their 3 grown children. One of the restaurants that the family remembers... More

This is a very pricey restaurant that generally delivers on quality, atmosphere, and service. It has unparalleled beach views of the south shore of Kauai. The food is consistent, well presented but not very adventurous. Service that night was special despite our server being in training. Tell them if it is a special occasion and they will help with making... More

I would give this 4.5 if available. The food is great, as is the view. A but pricey but knew that going in. Definitely bring sun glasses if going before the sun sets. It is blinding in there until the sun goes down. Great view though and they have a photographer taking sunset pictures for you that come out great.... More
