Description: Renowned for its signature style of "barefoot elegance," the transformed Beach Tree has a Hawaiian beach house feel marked by 16-foot (5-metre) vaulted ceilings and expansive water views. Trellised seating allows for al fresco dining, and outdoor lounge spaces set the stage for the perfect beachfront cocktail. Chef de Cuisine Nick Mastrascusa – formerly of 57 restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel New York – oversees a menu featuring California cuisine with Italian influences.All wines on the wine list are offered by the glass, half carafe and full bottle. Cocktails feature tropical ingredients, fresh fruit and original combinations, and include the Beach Tree Smash, which mixes pear and lime, and Tom's Pink Shirt, which combines guava liqueur, fresh Waimea strawberries and house-made sweet and sour made from agave nectar and fresh lime juice.

Located at the Four Seasons Hualalai, this is a fabulous restaurant serving a great lunch menu with a large array of options. The staff is great and very knowledgeable about the menu offerings. The view from the restaurant is fantastic in an atmosphere that is casual yet delectable. A must stop whether you are staying at the resort or not.

Whether you're staying at the FS/Hualalai or elsewhere on the Big Island, go to the Beach Tree at least once. Make a reservation a day in advance and get there 20 minutes before sunset. Best tables are on the lower level, where you're about 50 ft. from the ocean.

Firstly, this place isn't cheap. But the meal and setting is so nice it makes it one of the only 5 star restaurant reviews I've written, especially when considering the price. The blue cheese burgers and B.T burgers are amazing, worth the $20-$25 price tag. The views of the Four Seasons private beach and landscaped grounds is beautiful. $8 for... More

I ate several lunches off this menu. I loved the mahi mahi fish tacos with chipotle sauce. I especially loved the ahi tuna burger with wasabi slaw-I could eat that every day. Both items could be served with Maui sweet potato chips or parmesan chips-delicious!

The Beach Tree is by far the best place for meals. The service by everyone that works there is number 1. We had 15 meals there and had the same waitress ( Leah ) each time. She is the best. Teddy the general manager was outstanding, he and Leah never forgot our names or our favorite drinks. They both made... More

Beach tree food is fabulous and the setting is stunning. I loved the live music that played while we ate dinner, and seeing the sun set was a beautiful start to our wonderful vacation

This is a great lounge/restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel. We had wine while watching the sunset from this location. Magical experience since it sits directly the sand. Also ate dinner here and would highly recommend it!

Having lunch at Beach Tree was such a lovely part of our trip to Kona! I loved the food and atmosphere and our server was great at the beginning of our meal but then forgot about us halfway through. The place got really busy and having been a server in the weeds before I completely understood, but my water was... More

I was just on the Big Island and came over to the Four Seasons to check it out and have lunch with my son at the Beach House. I was considering staying at this property at an upcoming stay as I am or was loyal to the brand. I went to the hostess stand with my 18 year old son... More
