Outstanding at the Oasis
We ate at the Oasis the last night of our Kauai vacation--and it didn't disappoint. The patio was almost onto their beach so the views were spectacular; the service was superior; and the food was outstanding. Everything is cooked in a little service house directly behind the restaurant, and the chefs serve up great local ingredients in excellent dishes. My husband's Mahi was terrific, as well as my half filet. We are already missing the opportunity to go back on a regular basis, and the prices are reasonable. If they'd advertise, the restaurant would be packed every night. Until then, take advantage of the local secret and enjoy!

Very nice restaurant right
Very nice restaurant right on the beach in Kapaa. We enjoyed the beach view and open air dining with panoramic folding doors and loved that we could close the folding doors to keep the cool evening breeze out and keep the great view. The menu is limited and there were no evening "specials", however all the food was very tasty. I would definitely go back again.

One of the best on Kauai
This is an amazing restaurant - one of the best on Kauai and much underrated and under-advertised. The food is farm to table and so the menu changes frequently and the chef is committed to using Kauai grown and raised products which makes the flavours so fantastic. We went 18 months ago for our last night in Kauai and we repeated the tradition this trip. Both meals were outstanding, with views of the moon and the sound of the ocean helping to make it incredibly romantic. They even make their own orgeat syrup for the Mai-Tais which were outstanding. The staff were all helpful, efficient and friendly - visit if you can!

Wow - what a find! Oasis
Wow - what a find! Oasis is hospitality at it's finest. Thanks to Matt, Skittles, Leigh, Michael & Mike for the amazing experience. Unforgettable.

Eat outdoors right on the beach. I had the seared ono....it was perfect! I ordered the half plate and should have ordered the full! I highly recommend this island restaurant!

Oceanfront view and Kale salad
What I remember most was the fantastic view we had seating right in front of the beach. This is a gem that deserves to recognized. We liked the half portion menu alto the sizes were a bit small. Henry the waiter was great and we love his "u guys" attitude! Also the kale appetizer was the best I have ever had!

Kauai East Coast Secret
Opentable reservation got us a great table - outside within 70 feet of the beach and ocean. Fresh catch every day with locally grown fruits and vegetables. Regular "Pub" food available but the special entries are the winners. Happy Hour 4 to 6 with original recipe tropical drinks and some nice wines. Service very good but got a little slower once the restaurant fills up (after 7:00 PM). This is a well kept secret on the east coast of Kauai.
4/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful setting! Did not feel like a hotel restaurant at all! Pricing was reasonable! Caprese salad excellent, seared ahi was just ok!
4/22/2013 4:00:00 PM

We had the kale salad with croutons, short ribs and the ono fish special. They were delicious.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was vey good. A little bit pricey, but hey it's Hawaii what isn't? Beautiful view with open walls to the beach. The dress code wasn't exactly as described, there were a lot of families and people who looked like they had been at the pool all day, felt a little overdressed. Overall good place to eat.
4/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Oasis is a great find
A wonderful view, on the beach, great food with excellent service; go dine at Oasis. The menu centers around locally produced food. Excellent.

Great Place for Ocean Lovers
Wow - table right on the front of the restaurant with a 180 view of the ocean. Great service by Leigh and fun to chat with her about special events (including a special dinner at Na Aina Kai. Could not have found a better place for a mother's day celebration. It is not a huge menu but there is something there for everyone. And, if you just cannot eat a lot (like me), then you can order a 1/2 portion at half the cost. This alone will bring me back.
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our second meal here,
This was our second meal here, both were outstanding. Would return to Oasis anytime we are on Kauai. First meal was lunch, I had the best hamburger that I have ever had, a 6 oz grass fed beef patty with bacon jam, goat cheese, and two fried onion rings on a delicious roll. Dinner I had the 14oz steak cooked medium, it was perfectly cooked and delicious.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Table right on the beach
The food was very good and our table right on the edge of the beach was very nice. Get their before 6 p.m. and drinks are 1/2 price and they do good martinis. Ask for Henry as a waiter is he very good. Prices were not bad for being in the middle of a tourist area. To access Oasis you have to walk thought the hotel lobby, past the pool down to the beach.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful View . . .
Oasis is on the edge of the beach. A beautiful setting but also great food and excellent service. One of the specials that evening was a pan seared Ahi tuna that was excellent.

Don't miss this gem
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary with a trip to Hawaii. We went to Oasis on the Beach towards the end after receiving several recommendations and seeing great reviews via Yelp. Don't miss this place. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt in the south part of the island, but this was worth the drive. Outstanding food, excellent service, great drinks and a beautiful view as well. Everything we tried was outstanding, well cooked, seasoned and presented. The famous Mai Tai was incredible.

Revisiting an old friend
The outdoor setting was spectacular, but the wind kicked up beyond brisk and we felt a bit windblown in our location. We were not served bread at first, and we seemed a bit forgotten, but the delicious food quelled our slight dissatisfaction with feeling left out. The friendliness of the staff made up for the delay in receiving appetizers. After that balky start, all ran smoothly. Oasis remains just that in Kauai dining. We will be back.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were searching for a last minute dinner spot in our tour books and island dining guides. No availability anywhere. My husband said to check Open Table. Oasis came up and the description sounded great. We booked the table and drove over. The approach to the restaurant is through a gorgeous resort lobby, down a tree and flower lined path that borders a lazy river pool. The restaurant sits on the edge of the ocean--open air dining at its finest. The staff was friendly, professional, and attentive. The food was well prepared, artistically presented, and delicious. The beet salad should not be missed. Tuna was the fish of the day with many options available for preparation. They are famous for their Mai Tails (yummy)
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the effort
It's tucked away behind the Walpouli Beach Resort and there are no signs to guide you, but it's well worth the effort. They use as much local ingredients and Hawaii caught fresh fish. The ahi tuna was seared perfectly. Everything was presented nicely, also. I would highly recommend this for a dinner destination at least once while on the island.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great all around
Beautiful location right on the water with great views for a nice evening out. Meal was very fresh and presented extremely well. The kale salad was fantastic as well as the bruchetta. Drinks were prices rather standard and the signature mixed drinks are great. Dinner was better than expected especially their burger as they changed up the way it was done with a goat cheese and bacon jam. Very unique. Definitely recommend for great food and Atmosphere at a reasonable price.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
food was good, actually the steak was very good. Fish was only good, a little fishy, for Ono. Tables and chairs too bulky; chairs uncomfortable, and set too far apart from each other creating a cold atmosphere. Tropical drinks looked good as they passed by me on wait help trays.

farm to table goodness
Our group has a variety of dietary limitations, and we were getting tired of the heavier local fare that has been so plentiful on this trip. Oasis is aptly named. It was a breath of fresh air. There was a brief but during downpour during our meal, so some of the guests had to be moved to different tables. It caused a delay in seating, but the staff was very pleasant and moved quickly to accommodate the change.
The food was wonderful. Our waiter gave great descriptions and advice. He was also very observant, ensuring that our dining experience was enjoyable.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was encouraged to have dinner at The Oasis by some friends who knew that I didn't have a good exeperience in the past. After reading reviews on Yelp, I decided to give it a try. I made online reservations thru OpenTable and requested for a nice view and based on a review on Yelp, requested for Henry to be our server. When we got there, we did have a nice table and Henry was our server. He made great suggestions and everyone who waited on us were extremely professional. We were presented with a little token of appreciation in form of a complementary appetizer for making our reservations online.I ordered the steak, which was just a tiny bit over cooked but the flavors were there and it was so tender. I will definitely be back for more!
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food with very interesting flavor combinations. Service was fantastic, they were very attentive and their wine recommendations were spot on. I could not of asked for a better dining experience with the food and the view!!! Perfect all around.

Mobile dining in a tent, with a chef extraordinare. All locally purchased and prepared, with expert pairing of sauces, spices, and food items. A very fun evening was had by all.

Wonderful dinner overlooking ocean
The food was delicious, service excellent,
reservation made w open table, had a table overlooking
the ocean for sunset. Was a great evening.
Food is local grown, organic. I recommend the
Ahi on purple sweet potato.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Oasis is real treat. The food is extremely well prepared, and served by knowledgeable, food-loving professionals. They work very hard to use nearly all ingredients from local sources. I wish I could go more often that I do, but when I get there, it is a treat. The views and sounds are spectacular (right on the beach), and the pace of the plates seems to match the vibe precisely.
Do not miss Oasis.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great fusion cuisine with locally grown produce. A real find for those of us looking for a nicer restaurant on island. A bit expensive, though. Oh, but we had the best waiter ever!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our best meal, so far, on Kaua'i
It really lived up to its reputation. They do splendid things with both grilled and pan-seared fish. Only negative was that as the evening progressed, the place got noisier and noisier. So next time we'll come earlier (say, 6 or 6:30).
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful serene setting
Fresh catch Mahi Mahi was delicious. Burger was excellent! Mai Tais the best!,
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely outstanding! Favorite place to dine in Kapaa! Will be returning without question. Exceptional location.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique gourmet on the beach
We had a wonderful evening at Oasis. The setting is idyllic - a sheltered structure on the beach. The food is creative and well-executed. I had the pan-seared catch of the day, and my spouse had the A'a'kukui grass-fed burger with bacon jam. Both were delicious. We shared the apple-banana spring roll dessert as a topper to our excellent meal. The Mai Tais were excellent too.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to eat
We booked Oasis 4 months in advance from Australia, so there was some anticipation in having dinner there.
My wife and I had dinner at Oasis for our anniversary and my wifes birthday. Henry was our server had was extremely knowledgable regarding the food and the wine list, and he was honestly friendly.
They serve the best Mai Tai ever.
I rate it as one of the top 5 drinks I've had, and thats saying something!
Do youself a favour and go to Oasis even if you are not staying at the resort.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice find on Kaua'i!
My wife and I have been coming to this island for over 15 years now and have found lots of good places to eat but Oasis is special. Great food and service, all fresh and farm-to-table ingrediants. The view on the beach is a nice bonus!
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I had a fantastic dinner at the Oasis. We were seated oceanfront as we requested. The chef had a delicious preview of the delicious course to follow. Our server was great, we explained that we were kayaking the 17mi napali coast the next day and that we would not be drinking; coincidently she used to guide those trips and took a moment to tell us what to expect on our exciting adventure. Both of our meals were delicious. We did the full three course meal, appetizer to dessert and all the flavors were excellent! We would definitely recommend this place to others and plan to come back on our next trip to Kauai!

Some of the food was fabulous; the curry, the clams, the salad while other food; the pork chops, fresh catch was just average. The staff were having to tell us what they couldn't do so it was off-putting. We can't make that drink because we don't have the ingredients because a big party last night used it all, you can't have that appetizer, we are out of that fish. It makes a special time with friends not all that appealing.

The ambience, food and service was great. Another plus is they offer regular or smaller portions. We have dined here many times during vacations over the past years. It has always been great !!!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I booked this to celebrate our last night in Kauai, and what a fantastic evening it was, beautiful food, great atmosphere and brilliant staff. We wish we had found this gem earlier.
If your in the area, call in, you won't regret it.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a gem
Ocean side, outdoor dining, good food, good service. We liked their half sized portion which was just right.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I live on Maui and use Open Table as a professional concierge. While researching Restaurants for my vacation, I saw Oasis profiled and decided to try it on my Birthday. We were not disappointed! We had a beautiful table and a wonderful server Henry or Harry from Philly. My friend did not like her veggie dish and our server took it back and had the kitchen make her a new dish with no questions asked. Love that in a restaurant! The food was delightful and a fabulous time was had by all. Next time I am on Kauai I shall make sure to have another great dinning experience!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The uku was Ono! We left a message that it was our anniversary and the complimented us with champagne and a view of the ocean. Our waiter kept checking on us and making sure we were taken care of.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was amazing. Wife had the pork entree I had the "Rancher" cut steak. Both items were cooked perfectly. I order the steak medium rare+ and it was perfect, almost cut with your fork perfect. Waiter was very accommodating, it started raining some during our meal and he was there immediately to move our table farther under some cover. Like always the rain stopped after a few minutes and everything was fine. We sat closest table to the beach and the sound from the waves along with the view make it very romantic. A+ food A+ service A+ view make it a A+ place. Prices are perfect for the level of service and quality of food. Dont miss this on your honeymoon or vacation. We were there on Oct 22 2013 so this is a recent review.

One of Kapaa's Best Restaurants
Have dined twice at Oasis and it's wonderful. The restaurant sources its produce from farm to table, and everything is so fresh, delicious and healthy. By offering half portions for several entrees, you can eat less or sample more. Service is also excellent - attentive, friendly and welcoming. Perfect oceanside location too.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
good eats on east side
This place is worth a visit if on the east side, great menu with local ingredients, great bar and impeccable service. We will return.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We dined at Oasis on the recommendation of a friend and had one of our best meals on the island. We began with their hand-crafted Mai Tais made with 3 different rums and housemade orgeat syrup. Truly miraculous. And quite potent. And we sipped them throughout our meal. Because the menu offers half portions at about half the price of a full portion, we were able to sample an appetizer and four entrees. All the food is outstanding. The calamari appetizer was not breaded! It had a delicious honey glaze. The four fish dishes, all with different fish, were cooked perfectly, each fish cooked just right. We ended our meal with the super dense and creamy chocolate pot de creme and the fried apple banana with a local chocolate gelato.

Oasis by the Beach is the BEST !
Aloha! Thank you for an wonderful dining experience! The food, service, oceanfront view and ambiance are unsurpassed! We recommend the Oasis to everyone! Mahalo!

Don't miss this gem! Great food with an amazing ocean view.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great cuisine, service but....
Our favorite restaurant on Kauai is the Hukilau Lanai but when it was closed this Monday we tried the Oasis. We loved their menu choices, particularly being able to order half-portions of main courses, creative cuisine and great service (thanks, Henry!). Our main complaint it that, for those of us who enjoy wine with our meals but don't believe in spending an arm and a leg, the Oasis wine card disappoints. The least expensive bottle of red came in at $40. A restaurant with such good work coming out of the kitchen needs to search out some good wine options in the $25-30 range.
