My husband and I returned to Roy's Po'ipu for our 5 year anniversary and we're once again pleased. I had the Metairie with fried tofu and it was out of this world! My husband had the Opa and pasta, also good. You cannot go to Roy's and a pass up the Chocolate Soufflé. Get it! You will not regret it!... More

Chef Roy's new restaurant, Eating House, is just incredible. The décor immediately makes you feel as though you're sitting in a beautiful plantation in gorgeous Hawaii. Make sure to go early & grab a drink at the bar. The cocktails are delicious! We ended up eating two nights in a row at this restaurant. The food was incredible - especially... More

i hadn't been to Roy's in a couple of years but the food was always great. I was not disappointed last nite. I had the grilled short ribs with horseradish mashed potatoes. The short ribs were tender and beefy and loved the horseradish mashed potatoes. The chocolate soufflé was awesome - order early it takes a while. Roy's has a... More

when we visited in February the waiter told us thet they would be closing in a few days. They will reopen in a different Location and under a different name. We are fans of Roy's but this evening food was very disappointing.

As other reviewers have pointed out, Roys changed locations and just opened up recently. Great food without crazy inflated prices which can be common in the area. Kids menu is fantastic. They can go ramen, short rib or fish. Appy and dessert. Try the brussel sprout cauli golden raisin appy. It's a can't miss! Our mains were cooked with care.... More

Very romantic, loved the seats by the window, lighting was perfect, service was excellent and the food was to die for. One of the best restaurants on the Island.

We didn't want to stay...the macadamia crusted fish wasn't on the menu. But Tara explained the new concept to us and let us view the menu while we enjoyed a cocktail and the view. No pressure. We decided to be adventurous and boy were we happy we stayed! i had the hot pot rice bowl with butterfish and my husband... More
