Made a reservation and went early for happy hour. The staff had our table ready and we were able to enjoy happy hour pricing as a part of dinner. Good drink prices including $5 house wine. Mai Tai not available on special, but there are other unique cocktails. Some simple happy hour snacks available. Lots of enticing standard menu options. Restaurant is right next to the beach so a bit windy, but otherwise beautiful. Had a great time. Took a walk along the beach after dinner.

Outstanding location right on the water, we booked dinner for 4 of us at 6:15 PM in order to enjoy our last night on Kauai before taking the red-eye back to Seattle. The hostess seated us at the best available table, which was one of the BEST tables, front row right on the beach. Excellent Mai Tais and Martinis to start off, both made with fresh lillikoi juice. This restaraunt offers a couple options for daily catch served two or three different ways, all excellent (we tried three). One member of our party went for a boneless beef short rib, which was truly amazingly prepared. We haven't sampled too many fine dining establishments on Kauai, but I would say this restaurant compares favorably to some of the best we have had on other islands, such as Merriman's or Mama's Fish House on Maui, which are both at a significantly different (higher) price class. Overall great food and truly an excellent value for water view dining on Kauai.

Don't order the chicharon bucket appetizer
What we were expecting was the actual fried pork skin and grinds. Instead they placed the pork grinds "chips" that u can buy at a supermarket, on the table, in a plastic Tupperware. Very disappointed.

This was one of the best restaurant meals we had on Kauai, and we were there for two weeks! The food was magnificent; the staff even better if possible, and we will go back again and again. We sat at a table at the opening to the beach to a wonderful setting for our 50th Wedding Anniversary and they didn't know that until after we sat down. This is a romantic, wonderful addition to Kauai's dining scene!!!!

This place is a gem, it’s a little pricey but it’s well worth it because the chef is amazing. Our steak was the best we’ve ever had, we ordered one of each dessert because they make it there and it was really really amazing. Sitting outside on the beach, with the tiki torches and tiny white lights really made for an incredible ambience. We will be returning again

Decided to dine here as we were staying at the Waipouli Beach Resort. We were very happy with the service as well as the food. The location right on the beach didn’t hurt either. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area looking for fine dining in a casual atmosphere.

We had a lovely table over looking the ocean. Patio seating outside.

Everything was nice, but a few glitches. Our drink orders & appetizer order taken. Waited for drinks for awhile, while appetizers sat on the table.

Food order taken. No real follow up or attention paid to water glasses near empty. I had wanted to order wine with dinner, but no one came back to take my order.
Our entree came but the salads we ordered didn’t show up til after our meal.
We agreed to eat the entree & eat salads that came after food order.
It was a special anniversary for us, but nothing seemed important to the staff.

We ordered coffee and dessert, coffee came right away, but gone by the time dessert arrived. Asked for water again.

It could have been an off night. I wouldn’t make a point of returning to this restaurant. Staff seemed to wait on people they thought more important than us. As an afterthought, when the bill came, all of a sudden everyone was our best friend, chatty, trying to make nice.

We usually tip well, but were offended by this particular waiter & staff.
Hopefully the next guests are treated with more respect.

We spent our last night on Kauai at this restaurant and it didn't disappoint!! The food was outstanding, but even beyond that, Henry our waiter, made the entire evening spectacular!! He is truly gave us one of the best experiences we've had in years. He was extremely friendly and personable. He was knowledgable with the menu and gave us great options of what to order. Plus, he is a long time islander and was able to give us important and interesting history about the island. Overall a tremendous experience with Henry!!

Oasis wasn't bad but is more of a bar than a nice restaurant. It was pretty small so loud bar patrons at 10:00am took away from the experience. It is on the ocean but only a couple tables had umbrellas. In a nutshell ... the place was just so so.

The hostess was very kind and quickly whisked us back to our table, closest near the beach. The waiter was very friendly and very knowledgeable and accommodating, offering various deals for happy hour and suggesting some favorites, of which we happily obliged. The crowd noise was slight, though that is to be expected at a restaurant located in a hotel that accommodates families with children. A flickering candle was set before me and my date as we enjoyed our appetizers and meals. The half portions of our food were plenty and quite convenient if not looking to spend a lot of money on one meal. Afterwards, we walked right to the beach and enjoyed the sunset. All in all, it was as close to a perfect date night as one could get. 5 stars.

Tucked away, on the beach behind a large hotel/condo complex is a jewel of a casual beachy restaurant. The walk through the "complex" is a little off-putting, but well worth the winding walkway that ultimately leads to great little beach feel restaurant. This is pretty much an open air eatery but they do have folding glass doors that can be used to deflect winds if it becomes too windy, as it can feel quite chilly once the sun goes down. The views overlooking the water are beautiful. Our server (sorry I did not get his name, but we have been served by him before) is delightful and very attentive.

We started by sharing their fried wonton pork appetizers, which were very tasty. I ordered the fresh catch of the day which was Ono. It was perfectly grilled and was served with a sherry reduction and chermoula sauce with a side of wing beans I was able to substitute the creamy bliss potatoes for the pumpkin mash. My husband ordered the grilled ahi and he too substituted the creamy bliss potatoes for the sweet potato puree. It was serviced with bok choy and a roselle-tarragon vinaigrette. Our meals were delicious. We will be back.

View of ocean is amazing. My wife loved her fish. I ordered a burger cooked medium and it came out medium rare. They made another one for me and it came out well done, almost burnt. After two bites of the first burger and two bites of the second I sent it back and they took it off my bill. Don't order a burger here.
