I decided to save Roy's restaurant until my final day on vacation because I had heard how good a place it is. I was not let down. The food was very high quality despite not getting my bread because it was still frozen. However the full 3 courses was a delight but there could have been more choice for someone... More

From appetizers, main meal selection and desert this was the best restaurant in the area. Service was great, limited selections for children, but our 5 and 7 yr old loved it. Pricey, but we ate their twice in the week we were at Disney Resort.

Seated promptly. Delicious complementary edamame and sushi. Fantastic chicken satay and mac crusted swordfish. Warm from the oven Deserts were to die for. Wonderful service. Our only complaint was that we were seated on the highest tier next to the open kitchen... And the constant smoke from the kitchen was irritating to our eyes and lungs. Otherwise a perfect meal.

we enjoyed the food, it was good comparing to what you would get at Aulani. we sat outside with a view of the golf course, other than the constant attack from the flies, it was fine. The food was good and so was the service. Better than most touristy places.

Very impressed!!! Everything was excellent… Ti (the manager) was extremely accommodating, we arrived 45 minutes before dinner service began not knowing that the dining room was closed, and were about to leave because our only option was outside and it was very hot that day ( I think it was Monday 8/10.) My wife and I were dressed up for... More

One of the best Roy's experiences ever. Sitting on the outside patio overlooking the golf course and water features is a relaxing way to start a trip. When staying at Aulani, Roy's is always a go-to restaurant for our trip.

Loved our dinner at Roy's! We had a fantastic server who explained just about everything from how the food and drink was prepared to his favorite picks. Everything he suggested was delicious. The butterfish and soufflé for desert was amazing. Even the kids meals were substantial and the kids loved them. This is an expensive restaurant! Be prepared for that.... More

We walked about 5 minutes across from eh Aulaniu to Roy's. They do offer shuttle service but we decided to walk over since it was lovely evening. The food was good, my only complaint was my steak was not cooked to my liking. Everyone else enjoyed their meal and the desserts were delicious.
