Beach House Restaurant
Not to be confused with Zelo's Beach House, this is a perennial favorite for fine dining. It has had a rather turbulent history that includes more than one full-scale natural disaster. Nevertheless, in spite of hurricanes, changes of ownership, and the unstable dining climate in Hawai'i, this restaurant perseveres. Its Pacific Rim-influenced menu features a nice blend of seafood, veggie and meat dishes. Diners and even the jaded local contingency just cannot get enough of the vividly colorful sunsets.
I was on a family vacation and the Beach House got great reviews in our travel book. Although the food and sunset was pretty good, the service was completely lousy! Our party of eight was split up into two different tables and we were seated in a section of the restaurant that didn't have a good view of the sunset, let alone the beach. My table got served right away but my parents table didn't get their food for over an hour! Do not go to this restruant if you are in a hurry and don't expect to get a good seat in the house either. So after waiting at least 1 and a half hours we finally departed. On our way out the valet lost another party's keys to their rental car! What a nightmare. It may be tempting to go but maybe just for drinks (although the bar was very crowded), pass on the restaurant, it is completely overrated!
When we ate here in June 2005 the appetizers and cocktails were excellent but the dinner was just mediocre. We had a sunset view on the patio and since this is what makes this restaurant famous we overlooked the food and had a wonderful evening.
We returned in November of 2007 and again the appetizers and cocktails were great...but this time so was the food. We had the crab cakes (excellent) and the Watermelon salad. For dinner I had the Mac Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi and it was EXCELLENT. My husbands salmon was good too. For desert we had ordered the special of the night a blueberry tart...it knocked our socks off! This was so good! We saw a dramatic difference in quality that we remarked to the waitress who thinks the chef had changed since the last time we ate there.
This is a very romantic breathe taking restaurant. Reservations are needed about a week prior to your arrival, but it is well worth the wait. Be there at sunset and it is all worth it. They have a photographer ready to take your picture right at sunset (unfortunately we were not told this and we were very dissapointed to find this out afterwards, especially since it was our last night in the island.) It is a bit costly and the food was exquisite, however, I hate to say that I did have a better expereience at another local romantic restaurant.
