Everything was uniquely amazing! Staff was friendly and helpful - Delivered a special birthday (alcohol free) shot right off the start. We had many items starting with pork wontons and delish crispy sweet potato chips. We were pleased with option for half portions of entrees to allow for salad with meal. Without naming everything we had, all was exquisite! Highly recommend this place!

Location very nice within a resort, actually not indicated with label on the road.
Good food (I am Italian and understand e very well the quality), also the presentation of the dishes was outstanding.
The service was below expectations: I asked the waiter for translated menu in Italian or Spanish or French, but nothing. Due to my poor knowledge of dishes in English language, I started to ask the waiter for informations and his patience was decreasing question after question; at the time of the check he wished us ''a marvelous night! ''
Price was aligned to the prices on the island and overall aligned with the quality of the restaurant.

Our waiter was amazing and the food was wonderful~ especially the appetizers!!! We will be back for sure! Thank you Oasis on the Beach for a wonderful experience!

Beautiful setting, outstanding service and good food. It's an open restaurant but has temporary walls in case of inclement weather. Our server, Larry, was great, probably one of the best servers we've ever had - super friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel welcome. Great spot for a special occasion or romantic evening. They also offered vegetarian options.

The Philly Steak was excellent! The fish taco was great. The service was exceptional, and of course, the ocean view was grand. Will go there again for a business/friend lunch.

As an ordinary dinner out during vacation, fine. As a super special occasion destination dinner, only the location on the beach provided that. Nice to see and hear the ocean. Food selections seemed limited but still found something we each liked. Have to say, hopefully they keep the truffle bacon fried rice on the menu FOREVER. Delicious !!! Very friendly and helpful service, attentive mostly waiter. Over all a fine evening. 😊

Beautiful setting mostly empty restaurant, lovely waitress and even though the half portions appeared small they were very filling. Took forever to get our drinks which was prob the reason reviews aren’t 5 stars. And one more strange thing. We order a bucket of chicharrones with local
Hot sauce and they literally came in a plastic deli container, kind of changed the ambiance from fine dining to what the hell? I’ve never had to pry open plastic containers at a dinner table to eat my appetizer. Bazaar. Mai tais were the bomb!

Thank you Don for the warm welcome upon entry into The Oasis. I loved out door & open air ambiance near the Ocean. Our server Henry was stellar, and very genuine. Our cocktails, appetizers and dinner courses were delicious, especially with a sprinkle of Henry's freshly smoked salt. Looking forward to having another date night at the Oasis soon.

P.s - Thank you Henry your smoked salt!

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!!!!

Oasis is our "Go-To" spot on the East Shore of Kauai and is value-priced when compared to other spots on the island of equal quality. Please note that "value" in the islands does not equate to inexpensive, but in contrast to other sites on Kauai with similar offerings, "value" here applies. What makes Oasis special is its location; open-air and fronting a beach. Do allow plenty of time to arrive at the restaurant as Kapa'a traffic can approximate an LA Freeway. But that's OK, for Oasis' wonderful bar offerings will detangle your nerves promptly.

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!!
