After having lunch said we would not go back but as we where staying here thought we would give it another go. Service was worse, food disgusting, tea bag thrown... More

Horrible experience and the claimed they can not take American Express as part of the Ilikai resort they are not accommodating to anyone with an American Express. I cannot believe they are not set up for all credit cards and I would not recommend anyone visit this hotel. Food sucked. Service sucked. Don't come here while on vacation or business.... More

We ate as a family of four and had a great time testing out the various dishes. Great atmosphere out on the balcony, and fab food makes for a great evening out.

We picked up lunch from the restaurant and took it to the pool. The food was quite good and it was nice to enjoy it by the pool. The outdoor dining area is also nice.

We had been to this outdoor restaurant on previous stays at the Illikai so decided to have lunch there. The restaurant is now closed for a month due to renovations. The food was good and basic, not alot of variety and a tad high but you expect that when it is part of a hotel. The waitress was very friendly... More

Staff were rude, mixed up order, swept up and cleared tables whilst we were still eating and even after new people came in. Lunch time service was good it was only in the evening that things went wrong. We never returned

I stopped here after a small work out for a few beers. The bartender was very humble, the staff was friendly and tolerant of my existence and there was a little residue in my first beer. I requested a compensation and the bartender obliged. That doesn't happen everywhere.
