Reviewed July 19, 2014

Good food and great ambiance. You will probably have to wait for a table, but the waiting area is magnificent.

“Dinner at the Beachcomber”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Great meal with the family on the wooden deck looking over the beach and sea. Cocktails, yummy menu and super service from our server Dave who was a top bloke.
Would recommend this as a must visit restaurant if your staying at Pelican Hill or the area.

“Incredible view but lousy food”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

Eating here makes total sense since you get your free parking at Crystal Cove if you at least spend $15 at Beachcomber. The view is incredible, service is okay but the food was not. It was the worst corned beef & hash brown I ever had. The corned beef was dry & bland & even the presentation was not appealing. I had the toast & that's about it. I'd like to post the picture of my breakfast plate but I don't know how to do it.

“INCREDIBLE view, vibe and feeling here!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

If you want to know what it's like to go to Hawaii and have a tropical breakfast beachside without flying across the Pacific ocean to do so, then you must visit the Beachcomber. It really is a little bit of a secret as some of the locals I know didn't even know it was here! We ate here twice while we were in the area and just loved it! The small cottages of Crystal Cove which are located here as well are also lovely and will make you want to come back!
