We had a great meal and enjoyed the setting sun right from our table. The dining room opens out onto a private lawn area directly looking out to the west. The weather was nice and the breeze coming in off the ocean was a real plus. They had a nice selection of fresh seafood that was prepared and presented beautifully.... More

On our other trips to Kaua'i, the Beach House was always the best meal of the trip. On our last trip, my wife and I went one night to celebrate her 50th birthday: (1) waiter was absent minded and kept forgetting things, (2) steak was rubbery, (3) waiter gave a card to my wife that said "Happy Anniversary" instead of...

We liked this place so much we had dinner here twice. The food was really good and so were the cocktails. This place is excellent for watching the sunset. I would highly recommend this place.

With less than one day's notice in the last week of September, we were able to secure a sunset (6pm) reservation at a top restaurant with the best sunset view I can imagine. We ordered drinks, then were told to head out to the sunset viewing spot until we are satisfied with photos, etc, then to come back in and... More

Stunning sunset views in an absolute ocean front venue. Nicely appointed and spacious restaurant overlooking surf and setting sun. We, party of six, enjoyed beautiful mai tais and mocktails. 3x Ceviches were fresh and flavoursome. Maccadamian crusted fish was delightful and seafood linguine was fresh but average. Then came the Fresh Fish Thai Stew. Sadly, this meal failed horribly. We... More

This was a highlight for a late lunch with cocktails! The views are spectacular and breathtaking. The food was excellent but the setting is what makes the time unforgettable.

You can go for a drink or dinner but be there at sunset. Nice service (not overly fun but attentive and nice) and good food. Valet park and get there early to watch the surfers. Romantic and lively

We have a wonderful evening here! It started with sunset and then some mai tais and then dinner. There were 6 of us and we had about a 30 minute wait to get a table that was near the open air windows. Wonderful evening. The servers were amazing from the bartender on! Our group had different choices - some linguini... More

Three lunches so far. Really good food. Ahi salad with poached egg is superior. Good wine list. Great service. Sit on the ocean Lanai if you can. Not busy this time of year and we sat with friends for 2 hours with wine and coffee and just enjoyed the heck out of it. We will try dinner soon.

Thank Garry H
