The service is excellent. Jonica is a fantastic server. The Majestic mai tai is the best mai tai I have ever had. The calamari is great. The seafood corn chowder great. And now on to the fish, the buerre blanc sauces were delicious the fish was over cooked! The worst fish I had on the island. The local taco truck does a better job and I am serious.

We had an amazing and romantic dinner at the Beach House! Not only was the view fantastic but the food was fabulous as well. Make reservations well in advance! We had reservations for the first seating (5:30pm) and got there early so we could enjoy a drink and soak in the afternoon sun. It worked out well for us because when we were ready to sit down, we had our pick of the seats, so we chose one closest to the windows with a spectacular view of the ocean, surfers and beach-goers. When the sun finally started to set, we had a front row view. It was fantastic! The food and service was fabulous too! We both had the fresh fish (miso marinated for me and wasabi for him) and were delighted with the preparation, flavor and attention to detail. We were celebrating the beginning of our honeymoon and at the end of the dinner were presented with a card signed by the entire staff and a complimentary dessert. What a treat! It's definitely on the more expensive side, but completely worth it! We'll be back the next time we're in Kauai!

My husband and I went here after hearing about it from our travel agent as well as reading reviews on here. Most amazing sunset you will see on the island, incredibly beautiful! They have a lawn terrace where you can walk out to the water and take photos by the sunset. The service was great! The food is a little unusual, and very expensive. Next time I will just go for drinks right before sunset. If you want a table make sure you make reservations well in advance. Overall very beautiful, unique place to go! Don't miss it!

Is this a restaurant or a photography studio? We were very disappointed with the ambiance and the general atmosphere of this place. It's like being on a crowded cruise ship or at a noisy wedding reception. People come here to take pictures or have their pictures taken. People are constantly jumping up to rush past your table to take pictures of the view or have pictures taken of themselves or their companions outside. It didn't feel like a restaurant. They even have an in house photographer who asks if you'd like your picture taken outdoors. The food was okay. We ate quickly so we could get out. Our waiter was fine. This isn't a place for sophisticated or romantic dining.

Terrific sunset and "onolicious" food (thanks Clyde). We enjoyed a great view of the beach and setting sun even though it was cloudy. Our dinner was just right and we enjoyed our monchong fish and the fine service!
