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 ate there twice on our recent trip to Kauai. It was as good or better than I remembered it to be. That is something in that it was only open for about 2 weeks. Service was excellent at both seatings. The Ahi was great both times but the Ono was overcooked the second time. Salads are very fresh and it was very enjoyable. It is the perfect pandemic restaurant as there are no walls really. It is open air really. Highly recommended. Currently it is without peer in Poipu

Great food- the best filet mignon I’ve ever had (and I’ve had many), loved the booth ocean view seating, the drinks were amazing. The sunset was perfect. I would suggest limiting the amount of non paying customers on the property (grass) for a better experience. Parrots flying above was a bonus like Costa Rica.

Most restaurants with views tend to serve poor food. This was not the case here. Delish meals and superb service. And an amazing wine list, to boot!

Beautiful location, nice friendly service but very expensive for the quality of the food. The fish sounded wonderful in its description but was over-cooked, dry and it along with the rice and veggies were not adequately spiced. The bread was dry as well. Overall disappointed with how much we paid for the quality of the meal.

Beautiful atmosphere and good service. You are paying for the atmosphere here, the food is good, not excellent and the service is adequate not exemplary. That said, if you book a table for sunset it feels like you really have found paradise.

This was our favorite restaurant while we were visiting Kauai! They service is great, the food is delicious (the Mai-Thai is AMAZING!), and it has just a welcoming, warm feel. It's beautiful and we highly recommend!

Outstanding food, ambience and location.

The butternut squash ravioli was as unexpected as it was excellent.

Loved the fresh ahi too!

Definitely recommend for a lovely and complete dining experience.

Jeremy was our server and he was very professional, kind and attentive. The food was great I had the steak and every bite melted in my mouth, my boyfriend had the fish and said it had a little too much vinegar but almost finished it all anyways! The view is by far top notch, best on the island for sure. 10 out of 10 would eat here again!
Mahalo beach house staff!

Meh. So many better places in poipu. Go for bar/drinks. The view is great, but our dining experience was mediocre . Go to Red Salt if you’re looking for high end food quality. Touristy for dining- maybe locals go here for the cocktail view, but really, don’t see the attraction.

Great sunset view. Food was good but on pricey side. Kids pasta available. Street parking and valet I think.

The menu was somewhat limited, perhaps due to COVID restrictions, but the Ahi and Vegetarian entree we had were delicious. The creme brulee was perhaps the best we've ever had. And while the beer selection was limited, the wine selection was outstanding as was the surf-side ambiance. Be sure to be there during sunset. We will make a point of returning the next time we're in Kauai.

Birthday - Great service, There is still a limited menu because they are just reopening. Looking forward to more choices.
Ambiance- dim the lights- get rid of bulbs that are over 2700 K LED- too blue/ too bright.

Service was amazing. We had the wasabi and macadamia nut butter crusted fish specials and they were equally delicious (oh, and the potsticker appetizer, YUM)! Watched the surfers ride some pretty big waves, saw whales spouting in the distance, and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. So happy this fabulous restaurant is open again and can’t wait until our next visit!

My main feedback is I have been coming here for years and the menu keeps getting more and more limited. The food I had was good. Nothing tops the ambiance but the options on the menu are leaving a bit to be desired. Some of the previous “go to” items are no longer offered and nothing really new to replace. Only 3 appetizer options and 2 salad options... The service was great, just need to step up the menu options.

Delightful excellent food, great wine selection. Some of the best cocktails we’ve had anywhere. Very friendly and accommodating service. The westward views over ocean are excellent for sunset enjoyment. If you have a table post sunset, arrive early and sit on the lawn or chairs provided outside the restaurant.

Glass panel "wall" was slid open so our window table was open to the beautiful lawn and breaking ocean waves just 50 feet away! Wonderful, attentive service for our anniversary dinner.
