We have eaten at Beach House several times for lunch. Each time the service was excellent and the food was outstanding, particularly the fresh fish and fresh baked bread.

The Beach House is the perfect place to watch the famous Kauai sunset. In addition, the restaurant is very comfortable with large windows opening up to the ocean. The fish dishes are especially delicious with subtle island spices and sauces lending delicate flavours. Service is friendly and efficient. Prices are quite reasonable considering the restaurant and its location. Definitely a... More

We wanted to go somewhere nice for our final night on Kauai, so we returned to this nice-looking place for a final sunset dinner. We knew it would be expensive, but we wanted something memorable. I guess we got what we wanted, because this was an unforgettable fleecing. Including a 18% tip, we paid $54 USD for two tiny Caesar... More

Had a great time snorkeling here. Saw many different types of fish. Water was calm & we felt very safe since we were newbies. Was not terribly crowded, clean, life guards, & two restroom areas. A perfect family Beach & park.

Our visit to the Beach House Restaurant may have been the finest dining experience we have had. The service from start to end was superb. All Erica's recommendations did not disappoint. The filet was likely the one of the best steaks ever, you could literally cut it with a fork. And the drinks and coconut creme brulle topped the meal... More

The Beach House has terrific cuisine and is a great place for a fancy dinner. However, I enjoy having lunch here because I can enjoy the beautiful views and be in the shade during the heat of the day.

Food was great, what else do you need to know. Ok, great staff and service, great views, lots of friendly tourists and lots of friendly locals all dining together. Feel free to turn to your neighboring table and share a story or a laugh or to ask a question. Get there just before sunset!!!

Worth it for the sunset view if you arrive early and book way in advance. What a show! However, the food was just average and a bit disappointing. They also made 2 mistakes on my order and our waitress had to correct these by sending the plate back.

The best way to experience this place is by stumbling on to it. In this day of social media that is most likely impossible. Plan an evening here and don't tell your spouse or significant other anything other than you are going to dinner. Let the surprise wash over you both. In fact read some of the negative reviews of...

Booked with Reef Adventures of Kauai with guides Craig and Jimmy. First class tour and ecology centered pre excursion talk and great REEF expectations fullfilled with half dozen turtels and over 20 species of fish. Excellence continued to the Beachhouse where lunch was provided through the tour. GREAT EXPERIENCE

Thank GLVP2015
