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.

    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.

    Food was delicious. We had the lobster bisque, lobster deviled eggs, ono with macadamia crust, and filet mignon. All good. However, drinks were not good. Cocktails were unbalanced and not tasty. The wine served was room temperature.

    Be aware for open table they sat us at the smallest section of the bar. It was hot and claustrophobic feeling. They then moved us to a more open section of the bar. The hostess did not seem to think it was a big deal and this was after a 20 min wait for our bar table. Server and food was great. The view was gorgeous.

    Very limited menu and dishes weren't executed well. Fish was overcooked, vegetables were under-seasoned and just warmed but not cooked with care for flavor or presentation. Very loud and hot inside--not relaxing or enjoyable--we had to yell to hear each other. The only two positive points were the view and the service (server was friendly, attentive and welcoming).

    The RUDEST hostess. Had a reservation for 4 booked since July 2021. Had our eldest Son join in our vacation late and the pretentious anger we encountered by this hostess was bizarre just because we added an adult to our dinner party. This hostess was an awful example of how not to behave in front of our children. Eventually seated 30 Mins after original reservation time, Seated at the very back outdoor patio next to a pantry shed and a wedding going on. No view which was the entire point of making the early reservation to have a table with a view. Plenty of tables to add a chair when they became available but we were instantly pushed aside like we were punished for forgetting we did not make the change to 5. Could have been handled so many other ways with kindness. Our server , Nate was excellent but after the Hostess experience it ruined our last night out on the island and not at all any aloha spirit. It was obviously this hostess sat us in the worst spot and was so condescending. I’ve always frequented this restaurant multiple times a year however will not make a plan again to ever eat or have cocktails here or recommend to anyone else.

    We saved the best for last! On our last night on Kauai, we decided on dining at The Beach House and it was a great choice! First time and not the last. I highly recommend making reservations because this restaurant is very busy and now I see why. I dined with two tweens and my husband. Everyone loved their drinks, entrees, and the desserts…well, we got one of each to share. I loved the coffee tiramisu and coconut crème brûlée the best. We watched the sunset that was gorgeous. Challenging to get a picture with some many patrons and wedding party. We just sat and took in all of the beautiful colors.

    We have dined here for many years. This was the first year we have had a complaint. Where do I start!? I book my reservations WAY in advance in order to make sure we have a table. We have always been allowed to sit in the outdoor patio chairs while waiting for our table. It’s a spectacular place to watch the sunset with a cocktail. This year, we were told we’d have to move because “this was a place for walk-ins. They could come around the side door and a hostess would then seat them. Without prior reservations even!!! We had made our plans months ago and we’re being told that it didn’t matter. Where the heck were we supposed to go? We grabbed our drinks and food and stood up in order to accommodate he party with NO RESERVATIONS!! Such poor management. Like I said before, we have routinely eaten here for many years. Other than the MahinMahi, which was superb, everything else seemed to be lacking flavor. They also sat us right next to an ongoing wedding reception!!! Our table was tall and our chairs were low so for all of us the table hit us in the chest. It’s hard to imagine following all the rules and still getting cheated out of a fine night. The second time we went we asked not to be seated near another reception. We were placed in a patio on the far other side from it only to have a bunch of geckos crawling on the wall that our chair was up against. It was so hot and there was no fan overhead!! The sun was blinding and you had to hold up your menus to shade yourself. Not a fun time. It was cooler on the lawn than in the patio that was open air?! WTH!? It’s still one of our favorite places, but we will only be back for the sunsets. Not worth the hassle and big big bucks.

    We’ll be back for the food for sure! We highly recommend the macadamia encrusted mahi-mahi. We will make a future reservation after sunset. (During sunset the sun is blinding and hot at the tables nearest the windows.) The service was disappointing and the restaurant is LOUD, but the excellently prepared fish more than made up for this.

    Our experience at Beach House was phenomenal! The food was fantastic! So decadent and fresh and the staff and ambiance were incredible. Not to mention the amazing ocean view. The Mai tai with papaya foam was so yummy as were the dinner rolls! I must say Pulele was one of the most fantastic servers I have ever had! She was so warm, knowledgeable and friendly, and she definitely made our experience memorable! She recommended the potstickers which were the best we have ever tried and told us a lot about the islands and the fresh fish we were served and was willing to answer questions we had about anything with genuine kindness. I had the Lobster and Fish Pasta, a must have! My partner had the seared ahi tuna with broccolini, and jalapeño mashed potato’s. Both dishes were to die for! This will definitely be one of the most memorable meals we’ve had to date. I would recommended this place again and again and we can’t wait until our next visit! Thank you Beach House and especially Pulele! :)
