“Romantic, delicious, gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2009

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Kauai. The seafood was delicious and we had a lovely romantic dinner. The waitress and all other wait staff were incredibly accommodating, offering to take our picture and even suggesting we go outside to take a picture by the torches.

Our appetizers were out of this world and our seafood was amazing!

“Thumbs Down”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2009

Kauai is our favorite island and we took our friends to the Beach House in anticipation of a another great meal. Same fantastic location but the food was a big disappointment. Terrible sashimi, mediocre appetizers, heavy handed sauces and overcooked fish. Everything came out too fast and it felt like they couldn't wait to get us out of there. Considering the price, our party of 8 was let down to say the least. We travel quite a bit and expect a certain quality when paying top dollar. It's nice to be right on the water but don't waste your money.

“Incredible view and super food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2009

We loved this food - probably the best restaurant on the island. Here's a tip - get Subway sandwiches for your kids (around the corner) and let them have a picnic outside the restaurant while you eat the more expensive food. YES - it's allowed. No - it's not frowned upon.

Tip - follow the professional photographer and take your own pictures in the same spot he charges 21 per picture.

Food was incredible - seafood - great wine.

Last tip - you MUST have a reservation at least a week in advance.

ENJOY!

“The best of all worlds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2009

We have traveled all over the islands and always return to the Beach House which "sets the standard" for excellence in dining not only on Kauai, but anywhere as far as I am concerned. The setting is spectacular and the service excellent, friendly and attentive. The food is quite simply, "sublime". I had the seared ahi with furikake mashed potatoes and experienced the kind of culinary bliss I have rarely encountered anywhere! I also love the respect the chef pays to the fresh ingredients available on Kauai and the perfect blend of Hawaiian elements with those of other culinary traditions. An evening at the Beach House is something special when you want the best of everything Kauai has to offer!

“absolutely perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2009

The food was just delicious, drinks were great, view was even better and the staff went out of their way to be accommodating. I am actually not a seafood eater myself so I was a little worried, but I had a fantastic meal anyway. I would definitely go back! It was also pretty reasonable - I want to say that we spent around $100 for two, including one or two drinks each.
