We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at this restaurant and the food was good. We missed the Saturday night buffet but the breakfast buffet is very good. Highly recommend. View of porch-lit waterfalls, fishponds, and sparkling pools.

this place has a really good saturday night buffet. All types of sea food, crab legs, prime rib AND killer deserts. A fun place to put on your dressy hawaiin wear and take the family out!

This is our second vacation here and we love the food. The breakfast buffet has amazing fruit that melts in your mouth. The dinner is delicious. Service is sometimes great, sometimes slow. We ate at the Marriott and it was not as good as here. Sorta pricey but good. Banana creme brulee needs improvement.

While staying at Kauai Beach Resort, we took advantage of the Saturday night prime rib and seafood buffet. The food was excellent, and there were many choices of main dishes, sides, salads and desserts. The price was reasonable considering the quality and variety. The offer both indoor and patio seating, and the grounds are absolutely beautiful.

Noticed the king crab was not very fresh....... service was very friendly ( but also very slow and sporadic) for cocktails before and wine with dinner.

My wife & I stayed at Aqua Kauai Beach Resort in October 2016, and ate a Naupaka Terrace for two of our breakfasts & one dinner. The seating hostesses were cordial but not particularly filled with "the Aloha spirit." The table service was very friendly and attentive, with immediate recognition & use of guest names when greeting and serving. The... More

I an a fish lover and often order fish in restaurants. I can honestly say that the Macadamia Crusted Opah (Catch of the Day) was the best I have ever had. It was... More

Four of us recently went to the Saturday night seafood and prime rib buffet. At $48 per person we had high expectations. The food that was very limited in assortment was good. Our reservation was for 7 pm. We were seated at 7:45 with no place to sit while waiting, the table was not set until we asked, the line... More
