Fantastic meal & service

We just got back from dinner and it was sublime. The swordfish was tender, moist, and cooked to perfection. The ribs were melt in your mouth tender, and the desserts were the kind you dream about - the chocolate decadence and the chocolate souffle were beyond great. The best part of the meal was... read more

Great meal, great service. Four diners, four terrific meals AND dessert was even better! If you plan it, see if you can take advantage of the prix fix menu, that looks like a good value compared to aka carte pricing.

Reasonably priced happy hour, which runs from 3PM-5PM at their outdoor lanai, overlooking the golf course. Mongolian baby back ribs and Chinatown chicken spring rolls were excellent, full of fresh flavorful Asian spices. Garlic chili edamame and garlic chili chicken wings was a bit disappointing, both had the same seasoning, which was very similar to the bottled Thai chili seasoning... More

I am going to give this Roy's the benefit of doubt and give them 4 stars instead of 3 because of the service. The food I thought wasn't as good as the original Roy's in Hawai'i Kai, but it was still good. For some reason I guess I expected more from a Roy's restaurant, but when you expand to as... More

A very nice meal for a very large price. Although our party of 4 had some lovely food in nice surroundings with good service we thought the cost was around 25% too much compared to other similar restaurants on Oahu. We each had an appetiser, main, and 1 drink with no desert and the bill was $600

On our recent trip to Oahu, we were recommended to try this place because it had a well rounded menu. My wife had a small fillet that she enjoyed and my daughter had childrens chicken plate. The waiter recommended that I try a dish with assorted sashimi. I must admit the fish was outstanding and I'd definitely order this again... More

Excellent Hawaiian seafood with superb service!! We ate here for dinner and had butterfish, sampler appetizer, ahi tuna and shrimp dish. It was all delicious. We had mentioned that it was our 10yr anniversary and they brought out a special dessert for us and packed cookies for the kids because they were so exhausted and we had to take the... More

This is a typical Roys restaurant. The food is consistent with his formulas for the last 20 years. The location appears to be a take over of a golf course restaurant, so the Ambience is a little unusual, but the food, drinks, and service, give you what you would expect from Roys

On our week long visit we have eaten dinner here twice, so amazing! The menu is wonderful. Don't go past the Butterfish - One of the best dishes I've ever eaten anywhere, also the Scallops were delicious. Great service, lovely atmosphere and for us an enjoyable walk from our accommodation just 20 minutes away. Don't miss this!
