Island Philosophy of Beach House Restaurant Kauai
Owned by award-winning chef Peter Merriman, Beach House blends old-fashioned Hawaiian hospitality with a playful reimagining of the cuisines from around the Pacific. Everything is fresh, and local whenever possible: coffee comes from farms high in the Kaua‘i mountains, fish is purchased from local fishermen and markets, beef is raised on nearby ranches, and island produce and fruits are beautifully showcased in every corner of the menu. Lunch (11am-3pm) and dinner (4:45-9pm) are served daily, with food and drink available in the lounge all day long (11am-9pm).
From playful starters like Lobster Deviled Eggs and Poke Tacos with fresh ahi tuna, ginger, and avocado cream to delicious entrees like the Miso Glazed Catch of the Day, the tastes of Hawai‘i are on full display in a comfortable, relaxed, open air atmosphere with incredible ocean views. Fresh salads like the Watermelon Salad, Arugula and Goat Cheese Macadamia Salad, and the Nouvelle Ahi Nicoise are overflowing with delicious and sometimes exotic vegetables, and all can be supplemented with chicken, shrimp, or bacon. Sandwich favorites include the grilled Fresh Catch with pineapple tartar sauce, the burger with local Makaweli beef, and the tender Kalua Pork Sandwich with pineapple and papaya slaw. For mains, choose from a Stir Fried Vegetable Bowl with a spicy and tangy soy ginger sauce, Baja Style Fish Tacos with a coconut lime chipotle slaw, or Hawai‘i’s take on Fish and Chips, served with house-cut fries and pineapple tartar sauce.
Offering vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options, Beach House Restaurant Kauai has something for everyone, and the million-dollar views are complementary. Even kids have their own special menu, with popular picks like Chicken Tenders, hamburgers, and pasta.
