The restaurant is in the Fairmont Orchid hotel at Mauna Lani. It is an open air restaurant, with half the tables under cover, the other half with no cover.

I recently found this "hidden" jewel located at the Fairmont Orchid Hotel in Mauna Lani on the Big Island. Located on the ocean's edge, this outdoor dining venue is nearly unbeatable.

Nice location near the beach and outside, quiet and very good service. The wine list was very nice but had a hearts of palm salad which was terrible and my fish was too much tricked up

My husband and I witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets we had ever seen at our dinner at Browns. The food was delicious and the restaurant was very aware and accommodating of our gluten free needs and even did a special GF tempura batter on our shrimp appetizer.

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.
