good food, and excellent service

We were there for a very special birthday so it was great to be given an ocean view table. I was happy with the service and mostly the food was excellent.Though the beets were good, something was missing on that appetizer plate. The wasabe coated fish for the entree was terrific and my husband... read more

I've never seen a view from a restaurant as beautiful and compelling as this one. Beach House is right on one of the great beaches of the world and well situated to take advantage. You can sit and watch the breakers and surfers--and the sounds and smells of the ocean are wonderful too. We stopped in for the first time... More

As others have mentioned you go for the sunset dinner. BUT be forewarned that you want to time your reservation so you are not sitting in the sun as there is very little breeze and it can get toasty. Once the sun starts to set, it is a fabulous view and setting. Between the five of us, we had the... More

I was delighted to realise that we were staying in the building next door to this fabulous spot. We had a few lovely evenings here trying the different cocktails with gorgeous views of the sunset onto the ocean. I'm a vegetarian and was happy with the options available. Great friendly staff who were helpful and attentive.

With all the times I have visited Kauai and heard about the Beach House, I had not dined here as I had been told you needed reservations weeks in advance. Perhaps it's the time of year, but we arrived at 5 pm and there were many open tables in the bar area from which to choose. As other reviewers have... More

You go here for the view, especially at sunset. The entire west side is open to the ocean and its a good idea to make a reservation for times around sunset. The food is good but your really here for the atmosphere. Good service.

This is right on the beach with walls that are open to the sights and sounds of the waves. All seating have a vie and at sunset you can just walk out from seating and get excellent pictures of the sun setting. Food is great and not too out of price for the island. Excellent service by all from desk... More

I am not sure where to start to say how FABULOUS this place is!!! I truly wanted to live here. There is a spectacular view from EVERY table. Not a bad place in the restaurant to sit. Even the bar. Serious thought went into planning this place. The food was incredible, the waitstaff awesome, the photographer accommodating, the sunset did... More

Worth every penny. The food was great, servers were helpful and had the menu down pat. This has so far been the best part of our trip in Kauai. The ocean is also a couple foot steps away from the restaurant. Beautiful!! (And great bread.)
