Hawaii Regional Cuisine
The Beach House Restaurant's stunning ocean-front location with spectacular sunsets night after night makes it an iconic destination on Kauai's south shore that has won the prestigious Hale 'Aina Award for "Best Restaurant - Kauai" for 16 years running!

Our philosophy at the Beach House is simple - take some good old-fashioned Hawaiian hospitality, blend it with a Pacific Rim food experience and add an outstanding view to deliver an experience that delights all the senses. Our talented kitchen team makes the most of local ingredients by sourcing our fish directly from Island fisherman and our beef and coffee from neighboring ranches. We incorporate local fruits and vegetables whenever possible, and delight in being able to find new and innovative ways to use the resources that surround us on the Garden Isle. Our breads, buns, and desserts are all made from scratch in house and we proudly feature the works of renowned local artists throughout the restaurant.

    We’ve been going to Beach House for many years and I’ve never seen it so packed! They were about 30 minutes late to seating us. We had to sit outside to wait where my husband got bird pooped on Ha! It was very warm inside and not the best view at our table. The food was delicious, hubby said some of the best filet he’s had.

    Long wait even with reservation. We were rushed through dinner so they could turn the table. Prices were very high considering the food was mediocre and presentation was lacking. Not worth the price. Just go sit outside and order a drink from the bar. Not the best Mai-Tai on the island.

    Party of 6. Celebrating a birthday. Service was poor. Disconnect between server and waiter (order intake). Guest was brought a MaiTai which she did not order but waiter would not remove it from table. Ordered 6 potstickers for appetizer, very dry and flavorless. At table we had 1-lobster and fish pasta, 5 filet mignons, and one fresh catch of the day. (Ono). The pasta dish was lackluster, needed spices and flavoring. The filets were okay, mashed potatoes dry, carrots undercooked with no flavor. Everything was luke warm. Salt made every meal more palatable. Not good! Ono was “good”, but not memorable. Very noisy. Had to shout to be heard to converse. No AC! Too many people, Too hot!!!!! None of us will return on our subsequent trips to Kauai. Our local guests agreed they would not recommend. Waiter forgot birthday and nothing was presented in way of dessert or otherwise.

    Roasted at a table next to the open windows. All of us were sweating profusely during our meal making it a very uncomfortable environment to enjoy a meal. All of the tables next to us were also uncomfortable with the sun beating down on us and lack of fans or air conditioning. The food was good. Can’t say I would recommend or return.

    Our marriage dinner - excellent service with a very attentive yet relaxed waiter. All of the food was fantastic. The mai tai was the best I have ever had! I requested a table by the window when I booked online and they seated us on an outdoor patio overlooking the ocean with only three other tables near us. Couldn’t have been happier!

    What an amazing way to finish off our trip to Kauai. One of the best places to eat that we’ve ever been to and certainly some of the best service that we’ve had. Thank you Beach House - I’d recommend you to anyone (just so long as they are happy to spend a bit for a special occasion!)

    View is amazing but you will be uncomfortable and hot. Food was not amazing either. Filet was fatty, husband liked the tuna, potstickers were ok. Tiramisu and lemon cake both good but nothing amazing. Waiter was on it and very attentive. Would recommend just coming for drinks and hang on lawn they have for sunset

    We got a last minute reservation probably because of a cancelation and we are SO HAPPY we did. The Hightower seats in the bar facing the ocean were spectacular! Our waitress Zef was absolutely fabulous. Great recommendations and not rushing us at all which meant we were front seat to a beautiful sunset. The ravioli appetizer melted in our mouths. I almost ordered it for my main course and desert. But so happy I ordered the ahi and my wife ordered the filet. Both were cooked to perfection.

    We first visited the Beach House 8 years ago and had such a beautiful experience. When we planned on returning to Kauai this year, coming back to Beach House was high on the "to do" list and we are so happy we did, beautiful food, beautiful staff and the most gorgeous location. Thank you, we had a wonderful night. We have travelled from Australia, not sure when we will return again, but if/when we do, we will see you again.

    Beautiful setting! Menu was limited - only a few options. My husband doesn’t eat seafood and the filet mignon was the only option. I had the fish/lobster pasta. When I mentioned to the waiter I didn’t like either of the catch fishes he spoke to the kitchen and they substituted three shrimp. Ryan was our server and he was very attentive. Just wished they had more options on the menu.

    The food was delicious! Ono with amazing sauce and loved the buttered macadamia crust, and the veggies with it! (Rice was just okay). They let us move to a table right by the outside with a fantastic beach/sunset view. Server was nice. The only two negatives were 1-the guave limeade just tasted like a plain guava drink, didn’t have the limeade flavor at all :-( 2-didn’t do a great job refilling our waters

    We sat at our table for at least ten minutes before anyone even acknowledged we were there; service was good from that point but the first impressions weren’t the best. Cocktails were delicious. The lobster deviled eggs sounded interesting by the description but were actually just a deviled egg with a tiny piece of lobster sitting on top. My Ahi tuna was delicious and my husband had the fresh catch (Ono) which was a bit over cooked. Sunset was beautiful and nobody told us about the parakeet issue on Kauai but that was sure entertaining. Just at sunset literally hundreds and hundreds of these wild parakeets come home to roost every night in the trees by the restaurant. We were on the outside (covered thank goodness) patio and these birds were LOUD. As soon as it was dark they all went to sleep. What an interesting phenomenon (and I guess a pain for local farmers, these parakeets are an invasive species). Overall I gave the restaurant three stars because while it was good, it wasn’t great, and when you are paying that kind of $$ the food and service needs to be great. Beach House is a tradition in Poipu but it feels they are getting a bit lazy with coasting on their reputation.

    Got 9PM reservation because it was all that was available. Treated so poorly it was sad. Our server made us feel like he couldn't clock off soon enough. The macadamia crusted fish was dry although the steak was perfection. The worst was at the end our bill was given to us as we were still finishing our main course without asking if we'd like anything else, and I felt like I was grossly inconveniencing him to look at the dessert menu and order after dinner drinks. This location is gorgeous and it has a fabulous vibe. Just don't go if you can't get an earlier seating -- it was a big let down for our party to have such a poor experience. They really should reconsider offering this seating if one can only have a rushed meal without dessert in this slot.
