Great outside restaurant on the beach

The Ahi tuna was great - although it said it came with a bed of warm salad - which actually was a 'bed' of cooked barley. I don't call 'barley' a salad green !!! Also the fish-of-the-day was also great. Although the waiter said it came with brocallini - which was actually bock-choi - which are... read more

I had arranged for afternoon tea on the Veranda at the Beach House for my partner and a friend’s birthday celebrations and although there was a small delay in seating us the staff compensated for this by arranging a table with a magnificent view of the ocean. Aki, our waiter, was fun and nothing was a bother for her. Her... More

Perfect for brunch after a long walk on the beach. Mimosas are just right and plenty of options from the menu. Ambiance is relaxed, breeze blowing and the turquoise waters are a stare away. Cheers!

Located on the back veranda of the Westin Hotel, this restaurant has such a great, shaded setting. There's a huge banyan tree, gentle breezes blowing through the old, open lobby of the Moana Surfrider. It's just so pleasant. The food was fabulous! Expensive. But, fabulous. The wait staff was attentive as well. While expensive, it was a great way to... More

We had a wonderful girly afternoon tea with pink fizz...and a sweet gift of free fans! Selection of teas was excellent, staff service matched that. A lovely atmosphere of gentility right on the beach watching the surfers. Loved this and would recommend to anyone!

Me and the family went to this place on the last day of our stay in Waikiki. We were very pleased with the service and more importantly the food. Everything that we got was cooked to perfection. My tuna was cooked to perfection and was a good portion for me. Then the staff offered a gorgeous tea specialty (the only... More

We liked the food and service was good, a nice place to eat, you are close to everything. It's a lovely setting, can get quite crowded.

We eat here for our first nigh as they had a offer on. Lobster bisque was very good as was the steak but the panacotta had no flavour at all. Ambiance and staff were very good. All in all a good experience and well worth visiting especially if they do the late evening offer

I live in Honolulu and like most locals stay out of Waikiki. One of my daughters live here and the other was visiting from Nashvile and thought it would be perfect mother and daughters time. I have been at this beautiful tea in years past and I was not disappointed! It was so relaxing, no rush and 4 free hours... More
