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 got to the restaurant a little early and the front desk staff didn’t really seem to care in fact we were seated after the reservation time. The table wasn’t even set when we sat down and they kept bringing us utensils. My husband’s barely touched his meal and the waiter didn’t even question why and didn’t bother offering to take it off the tab. Overall I wouldn’t recommend booking a meal there with the exception of the beautiful view which becomes pitch dark pretty much after 8:00 if u wanna have a sunset meal book earlier in the evening.

Excellent service and best food so far on our vacation. The Mai Tai’s were delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and it was perfect. The sunset views and (grassy area for the kids to run around ) were wonderful.

Service, cleanliness, timeliness with reservation, professionalism needs improvement. Chef should consider moving to a new place that matches his/her level.

The food was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive even though the restaurant was extremely busy as our reservation was right around sundown which is the most popular time.

We have visited the Beach House over 12 times. Our last two visits were not up to the standards we have experienced in the past. Both nights the service was marginal. The food was very good. We waited over ten minutes for water for our sticky table. We had to chase down our waiter to order a glass of wine. This is the best dinner view on the island.
Regardless of where you eat on Kauai, make your reservations well in advance. If you can only enjoy one quality meal, I would recommend Tidepools at the Hyatt. Our experience there was perfection from entry to departure.
Aloha,

The dinner was spectacular but valet service left a lot to be desired! They didn’t even open our car doors- just stood there, with no communication other than pricing. Started out evening off on the wrong foot- but our waitress made up for it! Our best dinner on Kauai!!!

Best place for dining on the island. Great food. I had the macadamia-crusted ono special and it was delicious! My husband had the ahi and it was perfect. We were there a little too early for the sunset and the sun was intense (5:30) but the spot on the water was gorgeous. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly and didnt rush us. All in all, a truly memorable experience. Make your reservation a few months ahead, however.

We received the worst service I’ve experienced in a very long time. The waiter babbled incoherently about menu items and specials, never check on the table, brought water glasses to the table on a tray, and then walked away and took a very long to come back and we had to ask for the water. He poured sparkling water into the still water glasses. A bread basket was brought out at the END of the meal when we were finished eating. Two of the three dishes were so salty the were almost too salty to eat. Over all we had an extraordinarily poor experience, especially for the price point. It’s too bad because we had a wonderful experience the last time we were there. We went back for a special occasion, which was tarnished for everyone.

Our server had no personality or enthusiasm . He knew nothing about the allergy and bday celebration I put down when I made reservations online . I had to tell him again about the fennel which he didn’t know what it was . My boyfriend had to tell him about my bday which he also knew nothing about . The server made it seem like they would bring me a bday dessert complimentary but ended up charging us which I thought was terrible customer service !

The views were amazing. The food was the best we had on the island so far. The service was great.

Lots of photo ops. We asked our server to take a picture and he walked us outside the restaurant to get the best background.

Highly recommended.

We stopped on for an early dinner before heading to the airport. The food was fantastic and the view was amazing. We enjoyed a White Walker cocktail and lobster deviled eggs to start. I had the wasabi encrusted fresh catch, and my wife had the seafood linguine. Both were really good. We had the lemon semolina cake for dessert, and that was also a hit. And the setting is great. Just be careful if you are seated in the outdoor area nearest to the small beach - it can get hot in the sun late in the day. We’ll definitely return next time we are in Kauai.

This is a beautiful location right on the waterfront. The view is amazing. The staff was on point and super friendly. We laughed that as soon as we finished a drink or a plate someone would immediately swoop it up. The meals were absolutely delicious. The downside was that there were so many people the noise level was extremely high. We had a great time but it definitely wasn’t the ambiance of a romantic date until we left me walked on the waterfront.

My wife, two teenage boys and I had a delicious meal, we enjoyed every bit of it. My wife and I each had Macadamia crusted Ono, our boys had marlin and ahi. Everyone cleaned their plates. Potstickers were a good app, and the virgin mango coladas were yummy. Dessert was a vanilla parfait with strawberry glaze and a caramel dome, a flourless choc cake and a monster size creme brûlée with ginger cookies. View and atmosphere were wonderful, and we watched a wedding!

Lovely view, lovely service. Try the seafood linguini— well balanced and flavorful. Kids enjoyed the grass area while we waited for food. Picturesque and gramworthy. Don’t hesitate.

10/10 would recommend!! My husband and I came to Hawaii on our honeymoon and it was our best meal of the entire trip! We had the pork pot stickers, arugula and goat cheese salad, macadamia nut butter fresh catch, and the ahi. Topped it off with the chocolate tart for dessert which was equally as amazing! To drink, I had the white walker which was very good but just a little to much lime juice for me personally, while my husband had the no ka oi which was absolutely delicious! The Mai tais from there are fabulous as well!
