    If you want to spend a lot of money on very small portions of food that do not taste that good, then this the place for you. I have been to a lot of fine dining restaurants all over the world and I have never had food this bad. They only good thing about this restaurant is the ocean view. I would not recommend this restaurant for the food.

    The Beach Tree Cafe is beautiful, right on the beach, has delicious food and they even do half plates for entrees. It is expensive, but not too expensive. There is live Hawaiian music and a hula dancer during dinner. Since it is a resort, there are a lot of kids running around.

    We truly had a wonderful time. It was a very quiet elegant place but very welcoming. The service was flawless and warm. The food was equally exceptional. I had mahi mahi; when it come out I thought it was overdone. When I cut into it, I was sure it was overdone because it was so firm. It turned out looks were completely deceiving and it was flawlessly prepared. My wife had shrimp and she describes it as "excellent". The drive leaving the hotel after dinner was equally spectacular because the stars were so bright in the sky. Altogether, it was truly a wonderful evening. We would go back in a heartbeat.

  • Slightly Disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/22/2014
    This was a beautiful venue. However I had stated in my reservation request that it was my husband birthday and to seat us close to the ocean for the view to make the night more special. We were seated next to the cashiers station at a table that was the furthest from any view what so ever. Disappointing to say the least.

    My husband & I spent the last night of our Hawaii vacation at the Beach Tree restaurant. We were also celebrating our anniversary. I am not exaggerating when I say we found the service, ambiance, and food fantastic. The servers were so helpful and knowledgeable about the menu items that we were very comfortable taking their advice. We will definitely return there next time we go to the Big Island. The experience helped make e our visit memorable.

    Great atmosphere for a romantic dinner. Set menu but allowed to order from regular menu (very nice touch) Beet salad was excellent, sprinkled with goat cheese and beets were warm and buttery. Dressing was just right. Deserts was great and we received some chocolates to take with us for Valentine's Day. Loved the spotlight on the ocean, added a special extra to the dining experience. Live entertainment was enjoyable. A dinner that will long be remembered.

  • Best Meal in Hawaii
    explorereaterVIP
    Dined on 2/13/2014
    We were in Hawaii for 10 days on 2 islands, and Beach Tree was easily the best meal of the trip. The Four Seasons is a spectacular resort: the pools and grounds were impeccable. Beach Tree absolutely delivered on the food. My sister and I shared the lobster and shrimp meatballs that came with a spicy tomato sauce with capers. They were the single best tasting thing we had on the trip... I could have eaten those meatballs all night over a bowl of capellini tossed with extra sauce. We both had salads: the burrata was excellent, and sister's mushroom-arugula salad was also excellent and a massive portion. The swordfish with parsley pesto, pancetta wrapped asparagus and jalapeños was incredible. Great restaurant on the Kohala coast.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/30/2014
    I specifically asked over two weeks ahead when I made the reservation to be seated at a table where the sunset could be fully in view, as it was a special celebration of my husband's birthday. We were seated at a table where we were not able to view the sunset due to the host/hostess stand being directly in front of our table, and the entertainment by a hula dancer was obstructed by a pole directly in our view. Very, very disappointing. Will not bother to make the drive to this restaurant again.

From Chef Angela to Teddy the Manager and all of the servers and Bartenders - when you go, go early and you MUST have a drink at the bar - these bartenders are hilarious. So far we got to know Steven, Mike and Ed - very funny guys. Oh, an don't forget to order the Bon Bons for dessert - another MUST do.

    Everyone should have the Beachtree restaurant at the Four Seasons Hualalai on their must-do list while on the Big Island of Hawaii. Ideal for a special occasion or with that special someone.Treat yourself to the ultimate in island aloha from the restaurant "ohana" as well as the impecable food offerings and preparations from Chef Nick. The beachside atmosphere is the ultimate intimate romantic setting. It is best to be seated for the fantastic sunsets and beachside torch lighting ceremony. Enjoy soft island music and entertainment while experiencing your fantastic evening.

    With the perfect view, the perfect ocean breeze and the live hawaiian music at a very soothing level, all that is left to discover is the food and service. Both were excellent ++. Our waiter clearly loved his job and knew the food, giving us great advice on ordering. We had an appetizer a large salad and split the fresh catch dinner and still took a bit home for midnight snack. An overall wonderful experience!
