Very good food and atmosphere. We got the burger and ribs and were both delicious with decent portions. However the ceviche appetizer was ridiculously small.

This is our favorite restaurant on Kauai! Fresh local food with a talented chef in charge delivering wonderfully thought out menu. The setting on the beach is truly awesome...steps away from the surf. Not often you can get both great local food and a setting on the ocean in an unpretentious, friendly place. We followed a recommendation in the NYT and came back 3 times for happy hour, lunch and dinner. The desserts were creative and excellent!

We chose this restaurant for my 65th birthday. The menu seemed to have some creative items (like crickets). They reserved a nice table by the front for a beautiful ocean view and wished me a Happy Birthday, but I think it would of been nice to include a special dessert for free (something small like a scoop of ice cream) and a candle. Overall, a very good experience.

Excellent service from start to finish! We had a beautiful view table and excellent food for breakfast. They even accommodated my egg allergy. Breakfast menu is reasonably priced for area even though it’s more than we’d pay normally. Dinner is priced quite a bit higher. Overall great place to eat.

We sat outside on a lovely evening, facing the ocean. Service was great. Our food choices: my roasted kale salad was too large, my husband’s won tons were large fried pieces, with a very salty dip! I liked being able to choose a half-portion entree, but can’t say the same for the very small dessert for the price. But worth it for the relaxing ambience!

Upon arriving to check in for our online made reservation, We stood at the front counter for over 8 minutes before any one of the staff who had been walking back and forth by us said hello. We then waited another 5-10 minutes while 4-6 tables were empty. The front counter staff came up and said we'll be right with you to the family behind us and we were next to be seated. That was a weird feeling. All the staff seemed very stressed out. Our server was nice and did a better job as the night went on but at first started giving us detailed information about the restaurant instead of letting us settle in and order drinks first. The food was excellent and the ocean view was beautiful. Oasis needs to work on basic customer service skills.

The friendly staff took our request over the phone for a July 4 reservation. We were impressed that they phoned back two days before our arrival to confirm and advise us to arrive a few minutes early to assure the beat seating. We were seated just next to the beach — doesn’t get much better than that. Both my husband’s and my food and drink selections made for a tasty and memorable evening. Fabulous!

Our first visit to Oasis, and it was a great success! The food was excellent - the pot sticker appetizer was terrific, the curry fantastic. Prices were reasonable, and the service had a very personal feel. The ocean is just beyond the adjacent beach, and the atmosphere is appropriate to a beach restaurant. Highly recommended for a great meal!

Everything was creatively and beautifully prepared using locally sourced ingredients. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Beautiful beach front view.
I like Oasis because they make an effort to source their food locally. I live on Kauai and eat there a few ties each month. First time I've used this app to make a reservation.
The wait staff is excellent. Water was served immediately after sitting down and our cocktail and app order was taken promptly after that. They serve the best Maitai on Kauai. Order the Okinawan sweet potato app. Paper thin fried sweet potatoes with an incredible sauce.
For antres we ordered the grilled marlin and locally raised beef (New York strip). The marlin was a bit on the dry side but tasty, and the steak was excellent. Perfectly cooked med rare, tender and delicious. Great dessert and a walk on the beach afterwards. What's not to like?...

Food quality has improved and the service has become exceptional. It’s pricey 18.00 for a 1/2 portion- full portions are 35.00. Drinks are affordable at happy hour. The apple banana spring roll desert is nothing short of amazing, and the ocean front view, outstanding. Just wish there were more choices on the menu and a few for under 15.00would really make a difference.

During our stay in Kauai we are on the search for the perfect Mai Tai and so far this place wins the contest. The food is excellent and the staff very upbeat and cheery. We would not have been able to eat here without this app as they were so busy they were not taking walk ins.

Rain caught this place by surprise and patrons seated outdoors had to be moved inside- which affected our table reservation.
Hostess seemed frazzled. Waiter was also frazzled and forgot our appetizers. We were understanding and were comped a dessert. I was surprised at the restaurant response to the weather issue, after all this is a tropical location and a backup plan must be part of training. There are so many great restaurants in the area, I just wont go here again.

Whenever we visit Kaua'i, we always dine at Oasis on the Beach. The ocean view, the welcoming reception, the amazing food, and our favorite server, Henry, never fail to create the favorite evening of our vacation. This event was our 25th wedding anniversary. This evening could not have been more memorable. My fish entree, mahi-mahi, was superb, and the curry entree was delicately flavored and unforgettably delicious. Always fresh, local ingredients with which the chef makes magic. And especially tonight, the gifted bartender made a special Ky Martini that breaks records for perfection.

The view was outstanding, seating on a patio directly adjacent to the beach. The quiet sound of the waves, and the beach decor set the mood perfectly for the wonderful and crafted cocktails. The wait staff was extremely friendly and had great recommendations and descriptions of the menu items. With all of that, the expectations were set very high for the meal, and once the food arrived, those expectations were met. The locally sourced steak was cooked to perfection. The meal was so good I could not help it and had to stay for dessert which ended up being just as good! Would highly recommend dinning here.
