This restaurant is all about the view certainly not about the food. Their blackened grilled "catch of the day" was bland and boring. Basically, this dish was fish sitting on a bed of black rice prepared in a Thai style. Wow. Bland. If you want to have a drink and take in sunset then go. No need for reservations. The... More

I have eaten dinner here several times in the past with mixed reviews. It is undoubtedly on of the most beautiful places to take in the sunset but lunch was really nice too. Varied menu and laid back service.

My wife, myself, and my wife's brother and sister-in-law had the sunset meal at the Beach House Restaurant last week. With an open view to the water and the sky, the atmosphere is very romantic. The food was good though notably more expensive than other higher end restaurants with similar food. The service was excellent. Our waitress seemed to have... More

This was easily our favorite spot to eat. The food was 5 star in my opinion. Very good service. They all went above and beyond to be accommodating. We were always a little too late for the great sunsets.....Oh well...

The view for sunset unbeatable. Food was nice, with some mistakes and service was average at best. For the price, disappointed but again that view makes up for a lot of average.

The food was good, but nothing to write home about. Had a nice burger and fries. But the view was absolutely breathtaking. We came for lunch but I'd imagine the sunset is spectacular.

We "love" the Beach House and go there every time we are on Kauai. This year we brought our employees and spouses to Kauai and they loved the Beach House. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. Our waiter was Edwin, who exemplifies the "Aloha Spirit". He is the BEST waiter you will find anywhere!! Extremely... More

I had the wasabi crusted fresh catch. It was quite tasty and I would highly recommend. As an appetizer I had the sashimi tuna - oh my - probably the best I've ever had! And the view from our table was second to none. Be prepared to drop some dough here though - it's spendy.

The Beach House really has it all! It has become our family tradition to dine at the Beach House every time we visit Poipu. The scenery is breathtaking. We watched the sunset, dolphins and whales! The staff is accommodating, and the food is yummy. Nice selection. We also had a family picture taken with the ocean and sunset behind us.... More
