The Beach House By 604

The Beach House offers some of the best dining views on the west side of Oahu. It’s a short drive north of Ko Olina but totally worth it if you want to get outside the resort bubble for a moment. The chipotle mango ribs and the furikake ahi are worth the drive alone. Open Monday through Thursday 11am to 9pm, Friday 11am to 11pm, Saturday 10am to 11pm, and Sunday 10am to 9pm.  beachhouse604.com

Ocean views, tropical greenery and a koi pond create a tranquil oasis for the Ko Olina outpost of Longhi’s, which also has a second location on Maui. Bob Longhi opened the original location in Lahaina in 1976 and for decades has been providing delicious Italian-inspired cuisine to the islands. To help you soak up all the yummy cocktails the bartender’s shake and stir (be sure to try the “Sicilian Mai Tai”), the menu is full of hearty dishes like mac nut crusted fish. Open daily 9am to 9pm. longhis.com
