Plumeria Beach House Ratings and Reviews

I'm sorry to report the food was very disappointing, as I have been a customer of the Kahala when it was a hilton for the last 42 years. . . this food was barely acceptable, no inspiration, nothing unique, or even worth eating. . .sorry, it was very sad for this kind of a hotel. I won't be back.

The view was amazing! It was practically right on the beach; we even got to witness a wedding! The food was great... I especially loved the carving station. The only thing I didn't like was that it was sooooooo hot. I know, my fault for booking an open air restaurant but I just wished it was a little cooler.

Comfortable, good breakfast food choices, excellent ambiance for get togetherness, talking, enjoying each other's company and the dolphins after brunch, made it a well spent delightful time!

Treated BF to Father's Day Brunch - was a big hit with entire family. Food's good. Ambiance is gorgeous. Restaurant could do a better job keeping food items full - seemed a little understaffed.

Our server, although very cordial, was less than stellar in regards to attentiveness to the customer. When initially seated we were asked for our drinks. We asked if we could have a couple minutes to decide...the server never returned until we were 3/4 through our meal, and we were only asked , "How is your food?" The food was pretty good(considering it was a buffet $60/adult and $30/child 12 & under). But so much for our bottle of wine we wanted to have with dinner, or coffee that we could have enjoyed with dessert. C'est la vie. Quite disappointing...

Very poor service. We watied for server for a LONG time (at least 15 minutes) . It was so terrible. I have been to this restaurants for many times. This time was the worse experience ever. No matter the food or the service, I don't think it was worth the price they charged me.

Plumeria Beach House has an outstanding setting, as well as food and service. My only complaint is that the wines are waaaaaaaay over priced--marked up about 4x-5x retail as compared to 2x or 3x for other fine restaurants in Honolulu.

The seafood can be more multi selection. By the way, when I were eating a watermelon, I found a piece of glass shards in the watermelon. The foods and fruits should be more safety.

The service is always friendly and there's a great selection of food from the brunch buffet line. This time I ordered the lobster eggs benedict. It was delicious!

We were given roomy table and the food was good. Kitchen was extraordinarily slow for a restaurant that had about 70% capacity. Staff let us talk, which is nice, without pressuring us to leave.

Had the Wednesday curry buffet. The food was delicious from the 3 different curries and rices, variety of salads and desserts. All were ono! Service was a little slow and with kids crying to noisy silverware replenishing sounds, the atmosphere was more coffee shop than relaxing resort. But other than that it was a pretty nice lunch.
Nice relux time
Little bit away from waikiki, have a relux time seeing dolphins & colorfull seafishes under natural sound
Down a notch?
I always book The Plumeria at least once for every visit. This was Lei Day, booked early. No need to. The restaurant had 3 tables of diners at a prime time. Seemed odd. Had to send one dish back as it did not taste the same as another of the same dish we had at the table. It was handled very very well but still sorry about the entire evening. Empty room, so so food for all...... not sure what is happening. I still recommend for brunch. I'd try again before suggesting others go for dinner. The resort is tops - maybe an off night? sorry
nice and relaxing space
We used the restaurant during the travel for celebrating our 10th anniversary. Why we booked breakfast was that your breakfast is listed in Hawaiian guide of mine. And this is our first time in Hawaii. So we didn't know so much about your restaurant nor your hotel and we didn't expected so much. But now, I know your restaurant and your hotel as one of the nicest and the most relaxing place ever. The ocean, the pools, the garden, and so on. Everything fits to us. We felt like staying in Isle of Pines where we stayed for Honeymoon. We stayed Hilton this time, but if possible, we wanna stay and enjoy your hotel someday and eat breakfast in your restaurant every morning. Thank you.
improvement on buffet
For the price of buffet, saimin station should be changed. Maybe ok for lunch time. But it wasn't the greatest. Prime rib was excellent but aujus better than demiglaze. The cold selections and fish were wonderful. Clam Chowder was awesome Main entrees was mostly seafood but could be more tasty. Desserts were great especially bread pudding.
Catch the sunrise
I planned breakfast, they serve as early as 6:30am and just to be sure I made the simple and easy reservation for two on opentable for Plumeria Beach House. Breakfast variety is amazing and tasty. Then a walk on the beach and hammocks available on the property.
The resutarant was perfect for us.
We cerabrated birthday for one of our friend. Everybody really enjoyed the lunch. I will recommend to other people and I will bring my family, too.

We were 10'minutes late but called ahead to let them know ... When we arrived we were seated right away at a great table facing the water...lovely! We were offered water and drinks right away..Lori our server was fantastic as always and the bus-man was also attentive to bring water and clear plates. The food was excellent, fresh and well presented. Chef Mario kindly explained to my guest what the food labels meant ..EF,GF... so glad to see this! Lori went on a break but she let us know that we would be taken care of... when she came back, she brought a birthday cake for our birthday girl Vicki...so thoughtful! We always enjoy the beautiful atmosphere, great service and great food... that's why we come back time and time again! Mahalo!
The correspondence of the Japanese staff was disappointing. I was able to spend so wonderful time other than it.

Food was outstanding, but very pricey. Our bill was about $50 a person, and 3 of the guests were children. There was no alcohol purchased...just non alcoholic beverages and the dinner buffet. It is definitely a special occasion restaurant.
Bring it down a notch - your stress level, that is! Just sitting in this venue is relaxing. Add to that a superlative waitstaff, a lovely view and foodie- worth menu - what's not to love?
A GREAT GETAWAY FROM THE MADDENING PACE
FANTASTIC REUNION SITE FOR FOUR VINTAGE LADIES AND WONDERFUL MENU SELECTION. BUT COULD HAVE USED A REFILL ON THE ICE TEA!!!
Best Buffet on Island
Menu was on point- there is enough selection to have each item packed with flavor yet not too many to be over whelmed. The Friday/Saturday buffet is perfect for a special occasion or a night with the family. It may be seem pricey but you get what you pay for. We are looking forward to going again.
As always, the staff is extremely accommodating!
What I love about this establishment is that "anything's possible" attitude and graciousness. The food quality is always par excellence and delicious.
Easter at Plumeria
Outstanding service - perfect view - abundance of tasty food on the buffet. We had a wonderful evening with family.
Service by our waitstaff Barbara was just perfect
Really enjoyed our visit. Everything was wonderful.
Great brunch , lovely setting
We have been enjoying brunch at The Plumeria Beach Cafe for more than 20 years and it has never disappointed. The beachside setting is glorious, the food delicious with ample choice, the service attentive without being intrusive. Our daughter chose to have her wedding there with brunch to follow which I think is a resounding endorsement
Good value for the price, just a little disappointed with crab legs on bottom of pan sits in water. Maybe a "strainer like" on bottom so if you're the unlucky one to get those, the pieces would not have water in them. When cracking these, the water drips down your hand.
Lovely spot for lunch. Eat outside for ambience and view. Good food, good drinks. Don't miss the cheesecake!! Delicious!

Excellent service!! As always I appreciate the great service and the chef's willingness to cater to my dietary restrictions. Mahalo!
I have been to the Breakfast buffet here several times and we had a big birthday celebration here once. I have always been wowed by the scenery and the food has always be good. The best part of the experience has always been the service. I would recommend this place to everyone.
