about

S.O.V.

"There is some kind of energetic anomaly centered at SAM'S OCEAN VIEW. It doesn’t matter if I’m patronizing sams often or on rare occasion, nor whether it’s for dinner or brunch, no matter what… a trip to sam's always seems to result in unprecedented, completely unpredictable, good times. It’s an exquisite and endangered balance of honest light hearted silly ness, adult indulgences, childlike nostalgia, unapologetic extra, and deep meaningful conversations with people so wonderful and varied you’d think they were curated. Sam's is full of magnetic wondery. Thank you for making me feel so welcome and at home in your life and in your community."

EAT | DRINK | FUN| ocean views

One of the best restaurants in Kapaa, Sam’s Ocean View Restaurant + Bar is a Waterfront Restaurant in Kapaa, established in 2015  by Samantha Reynolds and Jill Petrarca. Sam was born in South Africa and immigrated to the US with her family at a young age. A US citizen, Sam has also traveled and worked throughout the US, Europe, South Africa and the United Kingdom, before settling in Kauai in 2013.
Jill Petrarca a native of Rhode Island and long term resident and restauranteur of Santa Barbara spear- headed the kitchen and Samantha the front off house operation. Together they created a Kaua’i hotspot establishing a great reputation amongst locals and tourists. In 2019 Jill went back to California and Sam is now sole operator working with original head chef Bodhi Mack and a core of long term employees.

 

Sam has created a beautiful Ocean Front Restaurant on Kauai, a place where people come together for great food, drinks, ambiance and fun. EVERY DAY GOOD FOOD using the best ingredients , quality cuts of meat and daily changing fresh fish options. Aloha to our fisherman for allowing us to prepare the Best Fish and Chips on Kauai!
 

Come to Sam's Ocean View where the Beautiful Kapaa Ocean View pays compliment to the great food, service and atmosphere. You may get lucky whale watching or be there for the rising of the full moon. Sam's is genuine in food, service and drink!
