Bookings essential in peak season. Service was good, and menu offered a good selection of dishes. The flavour of the fish dish was somewhat overwhelmed by too much butter/oil, but the pork dish was beautifully cooked. Portion sizes are substantial; avoid too much bread when you first sit down if you truly want to enjoy your meal. The rolls were... More

We loved the food and the setting of this restaurant. We had ceviche, calamari, and goat cheese salad as appetizers. The calamari was a very big portion, with huge pieces cut into sticks, served with a great tomato with wasabi dipping sauce and picked ginger. The ceviche had a great passion fruit tang, served with taro chips. Even the salad... More

My wife and I were here seven years ago and we were very pleased with the service and cuisine. We have also recommended the beach house to many of our friends who were planning to visit Kauai. So naturally we were looking forward to returning. We made reservations two weeks in advance as they book up early close to sunset... More

The atmosphere gets 5 stars. It is perfectly located on Lawai Beach on the edge of Poipu. It is right across from the Lawai Beach Resorrt where we are staying son it was a convenient first night dinner for us. We called for a reservation, and arrived right on time. It was unnerving when the hostess said it would be... More

The food was delicious. They didn't offer a lot of non seafood options but that was expected. The prices were too high for the amount of food you were given. The atmosphere is the best part.

Second time in two weeks and each time the service, food, and final tally of our bills were excellent!! The burgers, steaks and prime rib were cooked to perfection and the steaks consistently melted in your mouth! It is a must!!

I enjoyed a relaxing lunch facing the Poipu beaches. I had the local catch of the day and a glass of wine which was good. Service was friendly and views were beautiful.

From the moment you walk in you are welcomed with friendly courtious hosts and staff. Our family of 4 were not dressed very formally and just came back from a trip to Waimea Canyon but did not ever feel unwelcome. The atmosphere and menu did present itself as a more fine dining experience. Although we didn't have a reservation we... More

We had reservations at another (very expensive and highly rated) restaurant when a friend of ours said to eat here instead. For some crazy reason, we got in at the very last minute when someone else couldn't make their reservations and had a beautiful table right on the beach. We had a delightful server, had our pictures taken and were... More

Lived up to billing! Great food, great service, great ambience, and end the evening great sunset! Had cocktails and appetizers until sunset. Calamari was the best I've ever eaten, delicious crab cakes, and ended with Mac and cheese! Wife was hooked on the Lava Flows and I tried four different types of island brews! Great evening! I believe Seth was... More
