beautiful place to eat

we have eaten here several times. the food is fine, plenty of island selections. the sunset view is spectacular. Make a reservation early for 6 or 6:30. It will be crowded, but the sunset and ocean side dining is wonderful

You simply can't beat the view. Food and service are good but the view and atmosphere are fantastic. This is a must during your trip to Kauai.

My wife and I decided to go to dinner at this beautiful restaurant. First, however, we stopped at the bar for a beer and an umbrella drink and saw an unforgettable sunset. We were seated on the fringe of the building and feet from the water and beach. The waiter did an outstanding job making sure all of our needs... More

A great location, the best seaside restaurant on Kauai with spectacular views. That includes a lot of surfers right off the restaurant. Watching the surfers is as much fun as watching the sunset. We eat there every Sunday when we are on the island. The food and service is excellent although pricey. We usually have a salad and then share... More

The food is poor, the service is worse and the prices high. The only reason to go here is to have a drink and watch the sunset. I have been here at least 4-5 times and it seems to getting worse each time.

What more can be romantic than having dinner with the sunset shinning on the horizon!! Have visited here before and have not been disappointed with any choice on their menu. You can never be wrong in choosing any of their fish fodh. A must place to dine when you're in Kauai, Hawaii.

This restaurant is literally a BEACH "house." When the large sliding doors are open you can step right out on the beach. So the views are priceless and the sound of the waves is wonderful. The restaurant itself is lovely and the décor was very nice. If you drive, you must valet your car but the cost is reasonable. The... More

We drove from Princeville to Poipu just to have lunch here again on our last day of vacation, after discovering the place earlier in the week. It's open-air dining but covered and shaded, The food and service are good, the Mai Tais are great and watching folks surf in the lively waves is entertaining. What's not to like?

I had the Montauk (sp?) and it was absolutely delicious. It was a special fish diner that night. The Beach house is well known for its location which is fantastic, right at the oceans edge. Make you reservations early. We called a week ahead of time and could only get a 6:30 p.m. seating. They start at 6 p.m. Diners... More

We made reservations 2 days in advance. Got a lovely table right outside ( well almost). Had the crab cakes as a starter and the mani mahi for main. Wow, so soft and moist the fish was. Wow! Since it all tasted so good we ordered the carrot cake for dessert, and we never do dessert! But we weren't sorry... More
