Sunday brunch was worth it. Good selection . all of us enjoyed it. We had not booked but they were able to squeeze us in at 2pm (which isn't really brunch but we were able to get the experience) Would advise booking prior to arrival at hotel if only there for one Sunday.

We had my son's birthday dinner here and it was perfect. The setting within the Halekulani Hotel is stunning. Open air walls give way to Waikiki Beach on one side and Diamond Head to the south. Our server was elegant and casual at the same time and did a great job taking care of us. The Mai Tai drinks were... More

Orchids at Halekulani is a 5 Star, World Class Restaurant. We had a recommendation to try this place from the Honolulu Food Tour for Sunday brunch. We were staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and we made the walk down the beach to Orchids. We did not have a reservation and weren't guest of the hotel. This brought some raised... More

This is a great little place next the the Outtrigger. All the seafood was fresh and if they didn't have anything out, just simply ask and they will try to accommodate you (i.e., yogurt and cottage cheese). They mixed the Soya sauce and Wasabi together for the sushi/sashimi, so you need to flag someone down to get just wasabi. Had... More

Orchids is one of my favourite locations in the world. Looking out at Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach is sublime. We eat there for breakfast and dinner when staying in Honolulu. The staff are second to none and the food absolutely delicious. We are a family of four and our children enjoy it as much as we do.

This was by far the most expensive and elaborate brunch my wife and I have attended. The choice included carved meats (including a whole pig), ice cream and a number of Asian foods. I would say that if anything there was far more lunch food than breakfast food. I would have preferred a more traditional breakfast brunch, but for the... More

We were shouted a lunch here for our birthdays and were most impressed by the whole package - excellent service, great size meals, wonderful views, and a complimentary cake and candle to finish the meal. Definitely recommend to others - if we get back to Hawaii we will definitely come back here for lunch.

We visited this place several times during our stay at their sister hotel the Waikikki Parc. Fab views, great Long Island iced tea, snack, and wonderful local Hawaiian live music... Magical place!

We tried to dine here with our entire family of six. I called ahead and was advised about the dress code. My son-in-law only packed shorts (good enough for all other restaurants including Disney, Roy's, etc). They offered to let him borrow pants and he just laughed. So, two days later my husband and I went to dinner by ourselves... More

After many dinners here the best I can say about Orchids is that the decor is warm and inviting and the ocean view delightful and the food above average. The service on many occasions left a lot to be desire. Not enough waiters and many were inattentive at exactly the wrong times.
