We went to this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner. We vegetarians/vegans usually have a hard time finding upscale restaurants with good variety of vegetarian/vegan dishes - if we are lucky, we may find one or two dish(es) in each section (appetizer/main/desert). Of course, a...More

Located right in Fairmont, this restaurant is on the best location for sunset view. With the Hawaiian live music and spectacular view of sunset, it was a great dining experience. The reason for 4 star instead of 5 is the menu. It's very typical of...More

We dined here one time for dinner while staying at the resort. The entrees were good, but the desserts are in need of improvement. The service and food were top notch.

Go 45 minutes before sunset..Eat at HaleKai which is 150 feet to the right. Make dinner reservations there. It's the same sunset. Brown's BH is way overpriced and we do not find the food good enough to warrant the cost... More

The AAA Four Diamond award-winning Brown's Beach House is the place for the quintessential island fine dining experience located just steps from shore. Innovative, Big Island inspired cuisine is drawn from simple, pure flavors from locally grown, sustainable agriculture and seafood. Products using the diverse variety of fresh seafood from our island waters redefining the continuing evolution of Pacific Rim, Hawaii Regional, and most recently Big Island Cuisine. Exceptional nightly Hawaiian entertainment by resident soloists and romantic shoreline sunsets at a hand's distance blend naturally with the outdoor open-air seating for a memorable evening under the stars.
