We ate at some nice places on our vacation, but this dinner was the best. You can't beat the location. We hung out at Poi Pu Beach during the day and then had dinner here. Everything was amazing, especially the sunset.

This place has a beautiful view and the is really good. We went for lunch. They have different menu for lunch and dinner. The fish and chips are excellent as was the hamburger.

30 years ago we went to the Beach House Restaurant on our honeymoon and upon our return we saw it was still open and we had to return, It was beautiful, romantic, and the food was as great as it was back then.
