The AMA Ama restaurant at Disney's Aulani is situated and positioned to perfectly see the gorgeous beach. The food was terrific and the price for lunch was reasonable (by Hawaiian Standards). We thoroughly enjoyed the meal with family and friends. I have the pork sandwiches, (there were three) melt in your mouth. They "broke the mouth", which is a Hawaiian... More

I didn't want to order anything on the menu. Fairly overpriced for what was provided. Sun was in my eyes the whole time, even though they have a shade down.

My husband and I came here on date night to check out Aulani for next time we visit Hawaii. We went for an early dinner and enjoyed a mango-mint drink that was absolutely wonderful while we waited for our food. The view of the lagoon is outstanding and our food was brought quickly and was delicious. I can't wait to... More

This experience is a lot like eating in Cinderella's castle at Disneyworld - something to do, but not for the food. The food wasn't bad - it was quite good but just expensive. Best part is clearly the view. If you haven't been to Aulani, do it once. If you already have, not sure it's worth repeating.

This location at Aulani while expensive was the best breakfasts and dinners of entire trip. The wait staff was friendly, the food was excellent and the choices for kids and vegetarians were excellent.

Great views over the deck at Disney Resort. The flavours from their seafood dishes are fantastic. Kids well catered for (hey its Disney). Tip - If visiting (not staying at Disney), ask for your car parking ticket to be validated for free parking, otherwise the parking will be about $20-$30.

We have dinned at Ama Ama several times and we have always had a great experience!! We return each year to Ama Ama multiple times during our visit. We always ask for a table by the front of the restaurant that opens out onto the beach and ocean. Not only is their food selections outstanding, but the service is always... More

Our party of six (4 adults, 12 and 14 year old) enjoyed our dinner at Ama Ama. My husband and I had the chateaubriand for 2 which included 4 great appetizers and a fantastic dessert. The steak could be cut with a fork and the vegetable and potatoes were excellent. The chocolate dessert was unbelievable. My son and daughter-in-law had... More

We had the snapper and opa dishes and they were fabulous! Our server was extremely knowledgable and helpful with all of our questions and requests. The Hawaiian sea salts you receive to sprinkle on your bread and butter are also very yummy and signature Hawaiian! If you get the fish, you won't be disappointed.

Was he re in 2012 and this was my son's favorite restaurant , we ordered some of those favorites and they were lacking flavor freshness and lacked culinary finesse. I don't know if they got a new chef but my how things have changed. For the price I can't recommend.
