The Plumeria Beach House Restaurant is located at the Kahala Resort on Oahu. The setting is very pleasant, beach side with teak furniture, linen place mats, and cream colored umbrellas.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My husband and I were there for lunch. We were greeted warmly by the hostess who gave us the option of indoor or outdoor seating. She even advised us on which tables were best based on the amount of shade. She directed us to a nice outdoor seat. The photo to the right shows the view we had from our table.
The waitstaff was a little inconsistent. Sometimes they were great and other times we felt slightly neglected. For example, the waitress didn’t offer to tell us about any specials or choices of teas. However, we later heard her telling the table beside of us those details.
The lunch menu was extensive with many selections of sandwiches, salads, soups, as well as more substantial fish entrees. I would classify this restaurant as being expensive with an average meal costing around $20 per person.
My husband had the Hoisin Roasted Chicken Salad for $16. This salad consisted of chicken on a bed of lettuce with peanuts, red and yellow peppers, mandarin oranges and crispy chips. It was very tasty.
I chose the warm lobster salad which consisted of a small piece of lobster in the shell with hearts of palm, truffle oil, and a balsamic reduction with lettuce greens. It was a nice salad, but I was expecting something more spectacular for $22.
Our lunches were served with a nice selection of fresh breads, homemade crackers, and butter. Our water glasses were kept filled.
The restaurant charges $3 for small glass of soda that is loaded with ice. There were no free refills. Iced teas were $5, but they came with a simple sugar syrup for sweetening, which was a nice touch, but still over priced.
Overall, we enjoyed our lunch at the Plumeria Beach House restaurant, though the prices were definitely on the high side. I’ll finish by saying that if you do find yourself on the grounds of the Kahala, the Plumeria Beach House is worth a try.
