“Beautiful old building with great views and food”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We really enjoyed our dinner at Ocean House restaurant. We hadn't booked a table so were seated in a small outside area for a little while which was fine. Once shown to our table we were given 5 star treatment. The servers here have all been trained perfectly. Nothing was a problem. Orders for food and drinks were taken and sorted quickly. Pleasant staff, great food and wonderful setting - what more could you want? The crab stuffed Mahi Mahi was lovely and my husbands steak was cooked perfectly. We shared a desert just because we wanted to try one and we were not disappointed. Recommend.

“For a special night.”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Beautiful setting, fabulous food, fantastic staff. A must visit for that one special night on your holidays. Book a table by the window as you look right at the beach. Book and be seated by 6 pm for the meal special and the sunset! A must do!

“Good Breakfast, Dinner ok”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Stayed at the Reef and went here for breakfast twice. Great food and wonderful open vista to the beach. Try the crab cake benedict. Good service, not too busy. Went for dinner once as well. It was fine but we went for early bird Prime Rib at special price only to find that the special price was for an 8oz that wasn't even on the menu. Then the waiter tried to tell us it was too small. It was fine for my wife. I had larger. I was good, not great, and I felt a bit of bait and switch (even thought that probably wasn't the case).

“Prime rib”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

The prime rib is outstanding. I highly recommend the grilled asparagus. It was the best I've ever had. Service was wonderful.

“Authentic Hawaii”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Great food and ambiance . Very Hawaiian decor and very close to beach so view is amazing . Go at sunset,and you will be blown away. Terrific variety of dishes on menu and very reasonably priced wine list. They even have a cosy room for you to sit while you are waiting for a table! Staff are very friendly and helpful. Portions are big and it is all served in minimum time. We loved it!
