After great debate we finally booked Michel's for our 25th Wedding Anniversary meal, and so glad that we did, it is one of the most beautiful setting we could imagine and the food and service were both excellent, we even received a chocolate pudding complete with Anniversary decorations. Only thing we could comment negatively about was dress code not being... More

plan for sunset at Waikiki and if you are lucky you will see a green flash on the horizon before you begin a delightful gastronomic adventure that is visual and delicious. our fav waiter provides attentive service, waves of laughter and wonderful wine pairings. always a memorable and satisfying experience.

A hike if walking from Waikiki Beach. It gets dark pretty early in Hawaii, so we were walking in the dark...it didn't seem too safe. The food was pretty expensive for just okay taste. The service was great, but I think there are better places to eat for the price.

From the moment of our arrival the staff were very attentive. Were shown to the side entrance as if it were the main entrance as there is a step at the front and therefore not wheelchair friendly. Table open to the beach for amazing views. Service by Nathan was attentive with out being obtrusive. Food was delicious and innovative particularly... More

Seven of us celebrated two birthdays a few nights ago and we were all jazzed about dining at Michele's. The host was friendly and welcoming and unfortunately after that it was pretty much downhill. Our reservation was at 6:30 and the place was packed which probably accounted for the less than stellar service we expected from Michele's. He was busy... More

In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in Waikiki. The food is some of the best to be found anywhere and you would have to work very hard to find a better view. Michel's sits right on the beach and the open air setting is perfect. The bar selection is excellent and the wait staff is superb! This is... More

Traditionally we've chosen to end our visits to O'ahu at John Domani's but with the demise of that restaurant we thought we'd return (after a 15-20 year gap) to Michel's where we'd experienced an amazing meal before. In Waikiki a lot of places have a great view but few deliver a 5-star meal that matches. Michel's did not disappoint and... More

This restaurant has it all, great food, great beachside location, plus it's quiet and relaxing, a luxury in Waikiki. The service was friendly and attentive. Decor a bit OTT with dark timbers and elaborate touches, but it did not spoil a lovely evening.

We had dinner here for a special occasion. I made a reservation about a month out and we had a perfect table right along the window. A great wine list, perfect service, delicious dinner, beautiful sunset, and spectacular fireworks down the beach! What more could you ask for?!
