A group of 10 of us went for dinner last evening timed to be there as the sunset. The location did not disappoint. Our table, given the size of the group was a bit back from the spectacular open windows overlooking the ocean. Not a big deal. You can get up from your table and walk outside to take some beautiful photos. The service and food were excellent. They have daily fish specials fresh caught that day. Excellent for couples. Not sure I would bring kids here unless they have developed a sophisticated palette. Our server was attentive, friendly and engaging, without being intrusive. Deserts are variations of cream pies, banana, coconut, strawberry, etc. All are homemade with local sourced produce.

Great place for sunset views and family pictures. Be sure to check with the Weather Channel in advance to verify what time the sunsets and plan accordingly. We timed our dinner to begin at 630p for a 725pm sunset. Place was packed, but because we documented it was our 25th wedding anniversary in our reservation and our 2nd visit in and we got a very nice, round banquet booth facing out to the yard/ocean/ and sunset. Please be aware that this restaurant CATERS to the sunset views. As such, very large floor to ceiling glass panel doors are OPEN, on all sides facing out and the dining area can get VERY warm and humid. The late afternoon sunshine was blazing hot and it was was steamy in there, but since we had been there before, we knew how to dress appropriately. Most folks had their sunglasses on! LOL! If you don't like it hot and sticky for a hour while the sunsets, or crowded, this is not the place for you. Don't expect any privacy or secluded spots either in the Beach House or outside in the yard to take pics. There are several locations next to the tables nearest the open glass doors that the Beach House uses as a walk thru to the yard for ocean front pictures. If you don't want folks bothering you or walking near your table every few minutes as they go out to take pictures, REQUEST not to sit near there. Also, please show some patience and courtesy to the people in the ocean front yard. EVERYONE wants a perfect pic of loved ones in front of the sunset, preferably WITHOUT folks walking thru them. Be aware of your surroundings. Our waitress, (can't remember if it was Kristy or Courtney) was super sweet and very attentive. Even came out to the yard to offer taking a family picture for us as the sun was setting. With dessert she brought a beautiful card signed by all in the kitchen wishing us Happy Anniversary that I brought back to AZ with me because I just love the cards front beach design. All enjoyed their meal and we will return again, the next time we are in Kauai!

I booked 6 months in advance for my birthday dinner we took our whole family. I visited 3 times to make sure we would have a decent table. They put us in the farthest back table against a wall with a tent on the other side blocking any ocean view and NO fan. We were dripping wet. The kids were because of heat and had to leave and to top it off they didn't bring my dinner no one would eat out of respect so they had cold food and mine finally came dry as a bone inedible. Had to send it back no dinner for 70th I had it planned for 6 months. No food no view miserable experience. No apology from restaurant my family was so sad. We will just come for the great mai tais. I still want to cry when I think if it. Why would they do that. We had party favors leis special napkins. They k new it was a once in a lifetime experience Waitress was adorable however

The best restaurant in the area. Amazing view, beautiful food and excellent service. Great cocktails and bar area while waiting for table. Get there early and watch the sun go down. I’m gluten free and the waiter and kitchen so good about it. Everything was 5 star. Would definitely recommend. So much more atmosphere than all the hotel restaurants and much better prices.
