We were wandering around exploring on our first night in Waikiki Beach and found this little gem. After a long day of travel a good strong MaiTai and some fish and chips for my hubby and a Cobb salad for me was just perfect for a light supper. The best part was the live music including a lovely hula dancer... More

We wanted to eat in the Royal Hawaiian one night. We got there at 7 and the restaurant was booked for outside seating until 9:30. Instead we ate at the Mai Tai bar. It is also right on the beach. We had some simple items. There really is nothing substantial on the menu. Our server was friendly. They do not... More

Went to the Mai-Tai bar for a Mai-Tai (what else?) at happy hour time. Sure, it's not cheap. But the space is lovely and not overly loud or crowded. The Mai-Tai was delicious and it's fun to have one where they were invented. It's such a lovely hotel, this is a cheap way to have a taste of it without... More

We had drinks here, then dinner one night. The food wasn't bad but it wasn't anything special. It is a great place to have drinks and sit by the beach though. This is a must! The drinks were strong and the service ok.

We hung at the bar and had great bar food and delicious Mai Tai's. Another great location on the beach. It's a busy place with lots of people coming and going and sharing great stories at the bar.

Be prepared to relax and we waited on. The cocktails are wonderful and the staff are very friendly. Live music while you sip on your drink

This became our escape from the rest of the family during a Christmas holiday on Waikiki. Although we weren't staying in the hotel, we were able to find a table close to the beach without any problem. There were different musicians each night who provided a good backdrop for watching the sunset view. The MaiTai's were top notch and we... More

We were lucky enough to walk in and find an empty table near the beach to watch the gorgeous sunset. We ordered the Royal Mai Tai which I did not like due to the cherry flavour though my husband liked it.

First night in Hawaii, table first back from the beach, sunset, band playing for party next to us...perfect! Had nibbles to eat which were plenty. Calamari better than the raw plate. But the setting overcame everything!
