A word from Oasis
Oasis is a beautiful oceanfront location that showcases the best of what Kauai has to offer in cuisine, service and ocean views. We strongly believe that residents and guests of Hawaii want to experience Hawaii. We use local sources for almost 90% of our ingredients, and work closely with Kauai"s farmers and fishermen to provide you with the best and freshest possible ingredients. We work to highlight the quality and freshness of our ingredients in a style that captures the diversity of local cultures and influences without burying the delicious flavors that our local ingredients offer.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Henry was our waiter, ask for him. The locally grown food and fresh caught fish was outstanding as well as artfully prepared."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "everything was great and amazing view of the ocean"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Oasis truly is an oasis in the heart of Kapaa. It's one of the few open air restaurants where you can sit outside under an umbrella enjoying the sights and sounds of the ocean. Not only that, but the food was excellent. Loved it all. We met our mainland friends there, and had a very leisurely dinner, not once being made to feel like we needed to hurry. Service was well paced with no pressure. We'll definitely be back."

  • "Beautiful spot. Outside table with gorgeous ocean view. Party of four, everyone enjoyed their meals. The mai tai is not the typical fare and is a great choice."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This was the very first and last place we had dinner. I rarely have the same thing twice, opting to sample menus, but the curry with local catch was so good I had it twice--amazing. The view is wonderful, good service, and friendly for our 8 month old. No doubt we'll be back next time."

  • "I went there with my wife for dinner. We arrived there when it was not dark yet until it is completely dark. They gave us ocean front but under the roof table. Some table are really outside. Since it rains several times a day without any pattern, I think it is better to have a roof over you. They have menu that you can chose size, like "full" or "half". We chose fish dishes of halves. They were proper size for small eater like us, the taste was great, and the fish were fresh. The waiter were very kind and friendly. What else? The sound of surf is soothing, the room and the tables are spacious, we had very relaxing dinner."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Overall good experience... very slow paced (not ideal for kids) but views and food were good. Limited menu. We would go back again without our teens to enjoy the ambiance."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We loved it so much we returned the next night for appetizers and drinks before returning to the airport back to Oahu. Our Wailua River Guide Chris recommended the Oasis for dinner and we're so glad he did. Absolutely wonderful scenery on the beach, terrific bartender & servers, and the calamari, mahi mahi, and swordfish were wonderful. While not a huge Mai Tai fan, these were the best we've found on the islands so much that they brought us back. We didn't get the name of our bartender but she not only made us wonderful drinks but was also fun to talk to when she had a chance. The Oasis was so good, we are sure when we return to Kauai next we'll be staying at the Outrigger instead of the hotel we stayed at this trip."

  • "Good food. Staff we're very friendly. I appreciated the ability to order half portions on most menu items."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We chose Oasis from a number of restaurants on Kauai under the heading of "fine dining" part of the selection process was their prices which were significantly less than others. In addition the ocean view was a really bonus. We thorough enjoyed our meal and when we told them we were celebrating our 25th anniversary they brought champagne and a special treat on the house."

  • "Went for dinner and everything was great. Ordered the seared ono, but it was cooked through ... other than that very nice dining experience"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Scenic with wonderful food. Who could ask for more. Not to be missed. They have half orders of entrees. What a genius idea."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This restaurant has so much potential, but falls flat on execution. The menu is small, but varied and some great, interesting flavor combinations. The tartare bruschetta is amazing and I enjoyed the grilled kale salad 3 times. The burger is fantastic, but they can't seem to get the temp correct. Even tried ordering med rare and it still came out a bit over med. Calamari was over cooked and cold. So, all in all, we are here 4 times and the staff is fantastic, especially Henry and Leigh, but just take care to order items that are not too temperature dependant and you will love this place!!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I've been here a couple of times in the past for lunch (which is underwhelming), however their dinner service is where they really shine. Cocktails are creative and delicious, appetizers are varied and well executed (especially the calamari and bruschetta), entrees for each of us were excellent and perfectly cooked and seasoned, dessert selection while limited is to be savored (we all had the apple spring roll with caramel ice cream). Will definitely return for their awesome dinner service. Not to be missed is their okinawan sweet potato mash and any fresh fish option of the day."

  • "Our friends told us of Oasis. We book a table for two. Our table was ready for us. I had requested at table with a good view. (and there on many). We got the best view table you can get on the lanai with a view of the ocean. We felt great and we chatted. Then we noticed that we didn't have any water or menus. Time went on and finally we got menus but the water still hadn't come. We order cocktails and again waited. Finally they came. They were unusual and they were very good. They also have half orders and we each ordered one. The water finally came and a few minutes later some bread arrived. We had an appetizer and it came after we finished the bread. We waited for our meals. They were too salty: disappointed"

  • "There is an amazing gluten free menu with lots of great options. The server was very knowledgeable and I never felt anxious about my meal. Plus the view is amazing as well. Highly recommend this restaurant!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "They offer many of their entrees in 1/2 portions so you can sample several items in one sitting. I love having a 1/2 portion entre as an appetizer!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Outstanding service, superior fresh local food, and fantastic view... that says it all!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "There were 5 of us dining at a lovely table in the corner of the lanai and we were served by a wonderful person named Adam. Very knowlegable about the menu and offered descriptions when asked. We found the half portion entrees to be very small but very tasty, excelent salad choices and delicious deserts. Having individual French Coffee Pots was a treat. We are residents of Kauai and we will return to this small ocean front restaurant."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "One nice feature is that nearly all entrees come in half and full sizes. I had the short ribs. They were over a rice/bacon bits bed which was very tasty due to the sauce mix. The short ribs were certainly good. Had they been just a tad more moist they would have been excellent. The bread consisted of a 2" dia thinly sliced roll with herb butter. It was so good I ate 1-1/2 loaves. Our waiter was very attentive. The setting is very intimate and quiet. You are literally on the beach so the view is spectacular."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Beautiful views with very good food. Don't miss it."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We were seated immediately and a very nice table was already waiting for us. The servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. The view was nice even on this cloudy evening. The food was all very well prepared and we will definitely return. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Oasis on the Beach provides the opportunity for people to dine with a nice view of the ocean from their dining table. The best part isn't the view, it's the food at the restaurant. My wife and I each had one of the restaurants signature cocktails and savored the entrees from the menu. Everything was packed with flavor, including the little extra plate we got from the sous chef that wasn't listed on the menu. The restaurant has a relaxing feel to it, and the service was exceptional. Our waiter was very attentive to us and even brought each of us a glass of champagne to celebrate our honeymoon. Make sure you don't leave Kauai without visiting Oasis."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "It was okay. The food was okay and the service was subpar. The thing that killed the ambience was the Euro-disco music they played the entire time. It was very odd. If only they hadn't played that kind of music, the experience would have been so much more pleasant and less awkward. My partner really enjoyed his entree. Mine was okay but the appetizers were not that great. Food looked like it was just thrown together so I don't think it was worth the cost. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Love the restaurant. In fact, headed there tonight again with a group (our third night of five on the island!). Food is good and in addition to the spectacular view we are supportive of their farm-to-table approach. Staff are warm and friendly. A real winner!"
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Fish...Excellent. Beef...well since it is local you are kind of limited in quality, not like the mainland. My steak was tough but flavorful. Beautiful location , with monk seals coming in the afternoon/evening we wee there. Overall a great dinner with good wine and pupu's."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The carrot soup was outstanding; but the NY steak was all nerves, tendons. Could barely get a third bite out of that steak. Bummer."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Awesome food. Farm to table. So refreshing to have the freshest ingredients cooked perfectly. A must try!"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Farm to table food, excellent service, interesting drinks, and view of the pacific. To top it off the prices are reasonable compared to other ocean front restaurants at resorts. Out server Adam was amazing. Will def come back!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Wonderful food and great view of the ocean. Fish was amazing. We will be back on our next visit to the island. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Surprisingly, it is hard to find a restaurant with a view in Kauai! We have not tried this restaurant in previous years, and it is a keeper! The food was outstanding with locally grown ingredients and locally caught fish. There are not a lot of tables right on the ocean but the ambience is pleasant even inside the restaurant. We will go back."
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "I live on the Island and come here for lunch at times..... First time for dinner. Incredible meal. There is a real talented chef in the kitchen Had the best waiter ever, sweet man named " Henry" Request him. He will help you with your selections! I wanted everything on the menu"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Our tour guide at the Chocolate Farm recommend this place to us several years ago and we've been coming back ever since. Love the imaginative preparations, the fresh ingredients and the apple banana spring rolls! Always recommend this restaurant to friends going to Kauai since they would probably not find it otherwise."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "An ocean view from virtually every table. Open air with the ocean at your side. You could not find a more romantic and scenic place to enjoy dinner with that special person and / or great friends."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food was good although some items were quite salty. Drinks were great, I recommend the pineapple martini. Great seafood and a good assortment of non seafood fare for others. The service was horrendous, the bartender was more concerned with washing dishes than taking an order, we sat at the bar to wait for our table. We waited for 15 minutes to order and receive a drink (they were not that busy). The waiter left dirty dishes and drink glasses at our table, it took forever to get a second drink. The staff was more concerned about hanging out with each other then providing good service. If you go, order two drinks at a time and be assertive with staff."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "You certainly can't beat the view, with the Pacific mere yards away. Would be nice if there were fewer hedges between restaurant and the beach, but that may not be the establishment's call. Service was good. Food was outstanding, most of it sourced from right on the island or the nearby waters. The sweet potato chips were a fabulous appetizer. Decent craft beer selection as well. We would definitely go back."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Our table was just inside the open doorways and offered a spectacular view of the beach and ocean. Our fish entrees were well prepared (we had one grilled, the other sauteed). They offer 1/2 portions of most entrees (also priced at 1/2) and that was just the right size. Happy Hour cocktails are also a value."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "generally better, that night, dinner was not so good, plus they were short-staffed"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We found the service weird. The waiter took our order and the appetizer, main course and dessert was not served by our waiter. These courses was plucked down at our table, the dirty dishes from the previous course were not removed. When the waiter asked us how our meal was, the dirty fishes were still not removed. This lack of attention to detail was not expected."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The atmosphere was superb and the service was excellent by Henry. The food was very good. We had the Ahi which could have been seasoned a bit more and there were no condiments on the table. Ie salt and pepper. I will be back.... Thank you"
