Description: The essence of "barefoot elegance," Beach Tree Bar and Lounge has the feel of a Hawaiian beach house. Diners choose between al fresco beachside seating or an elegant open-air dining room with 16-foot vaulted ceilings. An outdoor lounge sets the stage for the perfect beachfront cocktail with nightly live entertainment. Featuring Italian and Mediterranean cuisine with California and tropical influences, specialty dishes include: House-made Pappardelle with Hāmākua Mushrooms and Parmigiano Crema; Gnocchi with Oxtail Ragout; and Mascarpone and Proscuitto Pizza. Beach Tree Bar and Lounge offers over 60 wines by the glass, carafe or bottle and is open for lunch and dinner daily. The culinary philosophy is to start with ingredients from the island, and then beyond – ensuring incorporation of the freshest, most sustainable ingredients available. Working with over 160 local farms, approximately 75% of the food served at Beach Tree Restaurant is from the Island of Hawaii.

Beach Tree is probably the most popular restaurant at the Four Seasons Hualalai. It sits right on the beach and is the most moderately priced menu among the 3 restaurants at the resort. Menu is Italian themed. The food is average - not anything special but acceptable. The other two restaurants at the resort have much better food. It's good for families and for a casual lunch or dinner. It is also a great spot to have a drink and watch the sunset. Other reviews of this restaurant have raved about the food but its far down on my list of places to eat in the area. There are much better food choices at the resort and within reasonable driving distance.

The setting was just beautiful -- a beachside sunset with fantastic live Hawaiian music. We had dinner reservations so we were seated behind the lounge tables (reservations not needed), which were right next to the beach. I think the lounge tables would be a great option, as they are closer to the water and the musicians. The food -- especially the stand-out banana split dessert -- was excellent. Service by the waitstaff was attentive and friendly.

The one negative was the host, who made a comment about our not being guests at the hotel -- it didn't seem relevant and it made me feel unwelcome because we weren't staying at the property.

My family ate here while in Hawaii. The view can't be beat. You can have a wonderful meal while watching the sunset. It was a relaxed atmosphere which was nice with kids, but we were still able to have great food. I highly recommend this restuarant. Try the fancy banana split for desseret, you wont be disappointed!

There are no words for the views at this location! Beyond beautiful! Near sand and beach! The food was great! We had the flat bread pizza's, mussels, pasta, fish and fantastic desserts! We went back a second time! we opted to sit in bar area which is actually closer to the water then the tables. The service was great! Even tough we were not staying at this resort they made us feel like we were! Loved it!

This resturant is amazing! I don't know which is better... the view, the food, the service, the atmosphere...all AMAZING! We went with another family and sat in the bar area. The entire place is outside, just a few feet from the sand. They do take reservations, but they were completely booked. So we took our chances and got there early and sat in the bar area, which honestly is just as good and way more laid back.
It was your typical Four Season service, FABULOUS! The menu is not huge but everything was very good. They have a great wine selection too. We even went back a 2nd time without the kids.
Although the food didn't seem as good... it was still GOOD. It is just a great place to spend an evening. Next time I go to the Big Island I would love to stay at this beautiful resort.
