Beach Tree Restaurant, Bar and Lounge
Lite Fares: Daily: 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Dinner: Daily: 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Hualalai's newest private dining option, our Barefoot Dinner is truly a toes-in-the sand experience. Set on the beach, in front of Beach Tree, 10 to 22 guests will enjoy a family style customized menu of Hawaii Island's freshest ingredients,
cooked alongside the table and perfectly paired with wine. Leave your shoes behind and enjoy a spectacular meal under the stars in paradise.
Second trip to Beach Tree, the first being a year ago. Food was much better prepared the first time. Overcooked fish, overcooked burger, just nothing impressive this time. I’d say it was overpriced, but so is every other touristy restaurant on the island.
The pizza was good, but the lasagna for two was really bad (gross even) with greasy meat and thick cheese making up almost all of it. I don't know why it would even be on the menu of an apparently good quality restaurant like this. It left us disappointed.
Nikki did a great job
Disappointed. If you are on a date, go to Ulu’s. For families, this is the right setting, but the price to quality ratio is poor. Beach Tree is not sure what it wants to be. I recommend stripping the menu down to gourmet pizza, sandwiches, burgers, and bar fare. Service was enthusiastic, but unrefined and slow, too stretched over too many tables. Also, they have a serious bird problem.
Taylor, our server, was exceptional and had the perfect balance of being accessible when needed and letting the four of us enjoy the great food, spirits and ocean front location. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversaries and Taylor surprised us with two extraordinary desserts that were heavenly. After we expressed a desire to try to make one of the dishes once we returned home, she even shared the chef’s recipe via email. The entire experience couldn’t have been better. The Beach Tree will be on our short list on our return visits. Mahalo Taylor and the entire team at the Beach Tree. We felt the aloha.....

this is a must and we are going back again
We've eaten at the Beach Tree three years in a row for my wife's birthday. It's a beautiful place. The past two years they have brought out a special dessert for her birthday and this year they didn't, but that's OK. I don't expect every visit to be perfect, but at $250 for two they should come close. My pasta was delicious but could have been hotter, and my wife just didn't love her Ono, had to ask for some lemon to give it more flavor. The location is stellar, just gorgeous, and the service is usually impeccable. Our server hastily cleared another table under the roof when it started to rain. Good for her. We'll probably return but we are slightly less enthusiastic about it I think. (Not that they care that much I suppose, we don't stay at the hotel.) Another thing: there was a wedding party at the hotel and I think a lot of them were at the restaurant. Their little kids were running around on the lawn in front, which was fine and fun. But when the kids started running around among the tables, the parents should have shooed them away. And when the parent's didn't, management should have said something to them.
Absolutely great location right on the beach. The live music added to the wonderful atmosphere. We had fun watched the kids playing on the lawn with the sunset in the background. The service was excellent.
Came early to have a drink and watch the sunset. Ordered a Macallan 12. When we got the bill it was for a Macallan 15 and was $35. I know prices are higher for drinks in Hawaii, but really? $35? So don’t give someone a higher priced drink without asking if that is okay first. The highest I have ever paid for a Macallan 12 was $20 at Pebble Beach and it was a double. The food was fantastic and the service exemplary. But even a basic vodka cranberry was still $15. I guess that’s what you get when you dine at a resort where the rooms start at $1000 a night. Anyone who can afford that probably doesn’t care how much their drink costs. We found drink costs at decent dinner restaurants around the island to be high, usually like $14 for a Mai Tai, unless you hit happy hour. Even in over priced Seattle, they don’t cost that much. I guess you are captive while on the island.
We have never been disappointed with the food, view or staff. Casual with breathtaking views, wonderful Hawaiian music and a friendly, attentive staff.
Had party of 8 ages from 7 to 74. All had a great meal and time. Very good vibe with fine Hawaiian music and hula dancer at sunset. Lovely beach setting, energetic crowd, great service. Seafood was fresh and delicious, steaks were perfectly prepared, good wine choices. Don’t miss this great dining experience.
We chose this restaurant because our friends were visiting from the mainland and we hadn't been before. It was their last night here and we wanted to make it special. The ambiance, decor and view of the surf ocean-side was good. However, the waitress was clumsy, forgetful and slow. Our friends ordered the Agnolotti and a Salsiccia Pizza (that was served without plates on the pizza pan in front of her). My husband & I ordered the Lasagna Verde for Two and it was awful. It had no seasoning and tasted like cheeseburger macaroni hamburger helper. The waitress never came back to check on us until dinner was over. We ate half and expected the remaining half to be boxed, however the waitress asked if she could take it out of our way and didn't bring it back. Our dog missed out - we wouldn't have finished it.
We're locals in Kona and won't be back.
Beautiful location! Service is so good and the daily special is awesome!
Would have been the perfect sunset dinner if Mother Nature cooperated, but even without it- the ambiance, music, food and service were excellent!
Amazing restaurant, everything we ordered was delicious. Beet salad, mascarpone pizza, angolotti, and dessert ice cream bon bons. Live music was nice and loved how they lit up the ocean even though it was dark. Overall great experience.
Upstanding food and service. One of the best on the Big Island.
Beautiful setting. Relaxed but refined beach side ambiance.
I know it’s the Four Seasons but $27 for a martini is over the top.
Service was excellent but I would expect that at a Four Seasons restaurant. Everything we ordered was delicious. Only suggestion to the restaurant would be to move the hostess stand off to the side rather than blocking the view for the customers.
The place was incredible with the exception of the wood smoked grill which blew all over us all night. Our clothes smelled like we were in a fire but everything else was incredible.
We have dined at the Beech Tree previously
Didn’t disappoint, recommend highly
Food was perfect, and service excellent
I loved the food . The chef is rather creative. His raviolis were delicious. Chef Higgins was also kind enough to chat with us . Our server was excellent and so lovely.
Amazing restaurant. Great view, music. Fabulous with allergies.
as always, the food, the atmosphere, the service, and the sunset were exquisite. the wine list has something for everyone, and so does the menu. if you're gluten free, the options are delicious from table breads to pizza.
We were disappointed with this restaurant which we had visited several times before. It was not the quality that the Four Seasons represents. The appetizers were huge in size they would easily serve as entree size. This led to us over ordering and we had to take half of the meal home. The fritto misto was very greasy and not crispy enough, it seemed that the oil that it was fried in was not hot enough. The day’s special porchetta was not a traditional porchetta which should be juicy throughout. The meat in the center was dry and the crispy rind on the outside was tough and I had a hard time cutting it. The service was impersonal, almost unfriendly and we had to keep asking for water refills. We hope that the Four Season will evaluate both its menu and service and bring them up to the expected standard.
On one of our only rainy nights in Hawaii, we made last minute reservations here. Service was great, food was great, ambiance was great. One of my favorite places to eat on the big island.
Would rate it higher if I didn't have to wait 45 min for my table even though I had a reservation.
I know anyplace with real estate like this will be expensive--RIGHT on the ocean with sunset views--but I still had sticker shock. I had the place on my list because of its cocktail menu, which I'd seen online without prices. $19 is the cheapest cocktail? And at least one was over $40? That's the kind of thing you should tell people in advance.
The restaurant is in a lovely setting. Service is exceptional! The menu is limited. Many dishes are overpriced, ie steak for $67 and a Manhattan for $27. They offer carafes of wine which is a great way to buy wine. Overall, this is a nice place, but be careful about the prices on what you order.
Shared beet salad - plenty of beets. Pork wrapped in pork belly was well done, but wouldn't order again. Short ribs were excellent - came falling off bone. Expensive, but the quality of the evening worth it.
One of the best settings in the world!
What a great experience. This was our first time to Beach Tree, celebrating my husband's birthday. We had a 5:30 reservation which was perfect timing for catching sunset while dining. We had a fantastic table with a great view. Our server, Matt, was perfectly attentive and knowledgeable. We started with the charcuterie platter, all of which was great. I had the pumpkin tortellini, which was a special and it was delicious. My husband had the spaghetti and it too was delicious. We were also lucky enough to see a mom and baby whale breach while we were there! We will definitely be back.
Excellent food and very understanding waiter. Our elderly parents were struggling with choices and he was more than accommodating. We really appreciated the friendliness and kindness of all persons we met there.
Changed chefs and the food is not as good as before.
If you are visiting the Big Island a trip to Beach Tree is a must. Food, service, view and experience are phenomenal. Make sure to make reservations.
We arrived and checked in early and proceeded to the bar to wait. It was extremely busy so we had a bite at our table with Wine. Bar foods are excellent and filling. Service friendly and efficient
