The Beach House has an incredible view. We've had dinner there every time we've been in Kauai and, while the food is good, its not spectacular. The problem has become the crowd - evenings are just jammed and the service can't keep up so we always seem to leave the Beach House disappointed with the experience. We went to the Beach House for lunch yesterday - food was just as good but the crowd was missing. We had a lovely lunch with a view - I would definitely recommend lunch at the Beach House but I won't be going back for dinner.

get an evening reservation and watch the sun go down over the ocean as you enjoy a 5 star meal but remember it also has a 5 star price. if you can afford it - it is well worth it!

Just had a great dinner. Expensive, yes, but worth it, yes! We had the crab-stuffed ahi roll to start which was pretty good. For an entree, I had the scallops which were delicious! The chef made a special vegetarian/vegan meal for a friend's meal and it was reslly the best of many dishes combine into one. It is true the service was slow and they ran out of chocolote cake for dessert, but these were forgivable transgressions considering the quality of the food. I will definitely come back for another meal at the Beach House! The other three diners at my table felt the same way.

My wife and I ate here 3 years ago and loved it, so for our trip back to Kauai we knew we had to have dinner here once. We made reservations for the first dinner sitting. By doing this, you can get a table right next to the windows, which aren't really windows since they are all opened up and you can walk in and out of the restaurant.

For dinner, we started with the watermelon salad which is excellent and most people seem to choose this salad. I got the seared ahi which was cooked perfectly and very tender. It was like butter and just melts in your mouth. My wife doesn't like seafood, so she was stuck with the chicken. She's gotten this on both visits, but it is an excellent dish. For dessert we shared the carrot cake. It was a great piece of cake. The restaurant also has a good drink menu.

We enjoy this restaurant and will be back to it during our next vacation in Kauai. As a side note, the beach located right outside the restaurant has some of the best snorkeling on Kauai.
