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.

Beautiful view and beach. Everything we ate had no flavor or salt and pepper. disappointed for a four seasons restaurant. No complementary dessert for birthday. wow ridiculous price for salads and appetizers. friendly staff and nice outdoor setting though

We loved Beach Tree. It is located at the Four Seasons and it is just the service I expected from the Four Seasons- very courteous and caring. My husband ordered their tasting menu which wasn't vegetarian but since my husband and I don't eat meat, the chef was able to change the main dish off the menu and make something of his own (very nice- most restaurants would be like sorry, you can't order the tasting menu then). Then for dessert, they ended up not having the dish on the tasting menu so they brought out this other dessert which didn't look appetizing- we told the lady we were hoping for some chocolate and out came a chocolate dessert instead. I would have to say that this restaurant is very accommodating as were all the other restaurants at the Four Seasons... loved dining here. My margherita pizza was delicious... the setting was perfect. They have lights near the beach so you can see the waves at night... they also have some music playing. I would totally recommend this restaurant.

The Beach Tree is the more casual of the dining options available at the Four Seasons currently. It has more traditional grill fare, but comes with all of the cost that you would expect at the four seasons. The sushi is second to none, but the real delight we had on this menu was the Ahi burger. With wasabi aoili and sweet chili sauce, you can't go wrong. Bag the salad and enjoy the onion rings. All of the food is available at poolside. This certainly makes for a better lunch menu than dinner, but you'll be hard pressed to go hungry here.

While you're there, don't forget to order a Beach Tree Smash, they are incredible.

If you want to have one GREAT meal and don't mind paying a lot...this is it. Plan to go for Sunset, because this location is BEAUTIFUL. The food is amazing. We just did drinks, appetizers and a desert. It was all very good. We ordered the crab cakes, sliders, and lamb. All of it was yummy, yummy, yummy. Wine is pricy but good. We ordered the Chocolate Tsunami for dessert and it was great too. The only drawback for this place is the price. Everything is expensive....which is why I say....if you're only planning one big night out...make this it.

The Four Seasons does a lovely job with almost everything. The only real issue with the Beach Tree is the minimal menu. Oddly the bar and the restaurant had different menus with different things!! even though you could order both. Not very clear. It might not be an issue if both had vaguely normal menus... but when the menu has 8 items good luck. The setting is beautiful, the sunsets great... on Friday nights they have lovely live music and a Hula dancer. My only real issue are the guests, who seem to not be nice people or considerate. At sunset many of the tables were occupied and the rest were covered with peoples belongings leaving no tables available. It seems to me that if everyone is gone from the table for more than five minutes perhaps their belongings should depart too.... and 20-30 minutes is incredibly rude and thoughtless.
