Wonderful oceanside dining with a nice happy hour. We appreciated the 1/2 portion. Recommend the clams app.

I couldn't take more than a couple bites of the bruschetta for it was extremely salty.. the fish added to my curry was pretty salty too. Very disappointed in this place. I'm one of those people who suck it up if I order something bad, but not a single thing here impressed me.

Service was ok although they did not have more wine after my first glass... disappointing.
Entree was good but both desserts which were ordered...banana lumpia and a phyllo were much too pricey and not good.

We enjoyed an excellent, extremely interesting meal, with a variety of new flavors and tastes. The service was outstanding, and the price was not too expensive for a special occasion. I don't eat out all the time, so when I do, finding a menu that's not average, a comfortable setting and a good price, is a treasure!
I highly recommend Oasis!

This place is amazing. The service was unbelievably great and the food was excellent. The tomato leek soup was the best I’ve ever tasted and the short rib was cut-with-a-fork tender. We will come back here again for sure.

We loved Oasis On The Beach. You need to make reservations, so you can get a table overlooking the ocean. Everything was fantastic. They make their own Almond Orgeat Syrup for the Mai Tais and they are the best I have ever had. That is saying a lot because we travel to Hawaii every year and get Mai Tais several times during our stay.

Oasis on the Beach has become our "Go-To" restaurant for a good meal and great view. Our prior visit had been to bring our mainland visitors to our favorite restaurant. They said (after spending two weeks on island and eating at many different restaurants) that Oasis on the Beach was their favorite, too!!

A nice cozy place on the beach. It has a pleasant vibe and was full of happy people. Their signature mai tai is excellent, all it needs is a sprig of mint for perfection. Our server, Leigh, was very good, engaged and helpful. We split a green salad, had curry with fish and a pork chop. The curry was great, as good as any we’ve tasted. Dessert offerings looked good, we settled on some nice mango sorbet. Again some mint garnish would add here. Solid place. We would definitely return.

Wonderful appetizer and salad. Perfectly prepared steak. Fish was very heavy on salt, and spots of the steak as well. Service had issues, and the manager was flip about the over salting and service. Cocktails were great, however.

Excellent local seafood prepared in interesting and delicious ways. Portions were more European in size (smaller) so if you are starving this restaurant could leave you hungry. The hand crafted cocktails are yummy. Nice outdoor atmosphere with a replica catamaran serving as the bar. Wait staff was incredible and very knowledgeable.

We were staying at the resort and wanted an easy lunch on our last day. We stayed for the ease and view. The view is awesome. The food is very good but the price point especially for lunch was high. The hamburger and fries though very tasty were expensive at $16.50. The beet chips with cheese are amazing. The philly cheesesteak was apparently amazing as well, also $16. The drinks are just ok and cost about $12-14 though half price on a select view for happy hour. 2 went for dinner and though expensive said the steak was extremely good. The service is probably the worst, no one seemed to know the specials and orders were messed up, also when it began to be evident it would rain no one came to ask if we wanted to move or help us do so---3 tables of people had to grab their own plates/drinks, etc and grab an open inside table. We were then just told, "it's ok for you to sit there"--thought at those prices they should have come helped everyone move in and asked if any food got ruined, etc.

Wow! Just ... wow! This is a great little place, that you can't appreciate until you eat there. We had a great dinner, with wonderful service from Henry. But the bonus was the view. Everyone told us to find restaurants with a view of the sunrise, but Oasis is on the east shore. So we were totally unprepared for the moonrise over the ocean. Simply stunning. This place is a winner!

We booked this restaurant for our first night in Kappa, as it was an easy 20 minute walk up the beach from our Kauai Shores Hotel. Upon arrival, we were seated on the nice veranda facing the ocean with great ocean breeze. The daily catch was fresh ahi tuna, so we ordered the tuna bruschetta - amazing! We also ordered half size portions of the curry with daily catch and the quinoa, local vegetables and daily catch. Every bite was delicious and perfectly portioned. If you're super starving, be sure and order the full size portion, as half was more of a lunch portion. We ended dinner on the waiter's recommendation of the dark chocolate Kalua mouse and it was to die for! Definitely recommend this low key, quaint restaurant for all visitors to Kauai. It won't disappoint!
