I was so impressed by the food and service! What a pleasant surprise to find this little gem.
The menu was refreshing with items I haven't seen on most local menus. We had both dinner and breakfast and nothing went to waste.
You should definitely make a point to try this Restaurant if you haven't yet. They also offer a Kaua'i-aina discount, so if you live on Kaua'i, be sure to ask about it. We'll definitely stop by again!

Very disappointing. Music is great, but when it is so loud that you cannot have a conversation with the others in your group, it is problematic. I ordered garlic shrimp, which was very good. However, when I asked for a piece of bread, the server informed me that I would have to order the garlic bread, at a cost of $7.50. I said that all I wanted was one piece of 'regular' bread. Apparently that was beyond the reach of the kitchen at this restaurant.

I am sorry we were unable to accommodate your request, but we are glad to hear you enjoyed our Sizzling Shrimp. Mahalo!

Great atmosphere on the beach with appropriate live entertainment. We experienced this location for both breakfast and dinner. The portions for both meals were outstanding at reasonable cost. The service was friendly and welcoming. Seems to be a popular spot, so I would definitely recommend reservations for dinner as they ensure that there isn’t overcrowding in the dining area.

Toes in the sand! My daughter wanted a tropical drink on the beach during our Kauai vacation. Lava Lava Beach Club provided that, and more. The outside tables sit on the sand just off the western shore in Kapa a. Literally, our toes were in the sand. We enjoyed great service and a wonderful meal. My daughter had a Gilligan's Girl to drink, which came in a souvenier coconut cup. My son had a killer, huge, Bamboocha Mai Tai in a tall big bamboo souvenier cup. So, while pricey, it fufilled their criteria, putting a check mark on one of the things they wantedt to enjoy on vacation. And the drinks were excellent. Kudos to the bartender. There was a live band, adding to the ambiance. We enjoyed our cocktails watching the ocean waves while the light disappeared. Our meals were all very good. Not extraordinary, but very good. I had the Opah, the catch of the day, which was cooked perfectly over yummy coconut rice. My husband had the teriaki steak, which was served with traditional fried rice and vegetable. The kids had burgers. Everyone enjoyed. No complaints here. We would not hesitate to go again next time we are in Kauai. Make reservations if you want the premium outdoor seating. Beachside is best!

Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive. The service was a bit slow but it was very busy. The food was ok and a bit overpriced but the atmosphere was very nice. We were right on the beach and they had lovely music. It did start to rain so we had to move in to another table. We were still picking at our dinner which was in the rain but at least we were basically done. I would recommend it to a crowd or young party people but not a quiet romantic dinner on the beach

Ordered pineapple rice bowl that comes with grilled chicken. Chicken came out under cooked and was taken away and asked for it to be well done and came back not as requested. Also ordered coconut shrimp as an add on and they give you three shrimp and want to charge you 11 dollars. Also asked for dipping sauce and was charged a dollar for that. I have never seen that. Manager never came over to apologize for the undercooked chicken. When asked to speak to him there was still no apology. Not impressed.

Wir waren scheinbar etwas spät (für 20:30 hatten wir reserviert und waren pünktlich)
Alles ging dann sehr schnell inclusive der unaufgefordert auf den Tisch gestellten Rechnung.
Eigentlich hätten wir gerne noch was zu trinken bestellt - davon haben wir dann abgesehen.
Wahrscheinlich sind wir mit den örtlichen Gepflogenheiten nicht vertraut. In Europa würde man sowas als unfreundlich ansehen.
Das Essen und die Getränke waren gut.
