We never ate a full meal here, but went 3 times in 10 days for sundowner drinks and bar snacks, taking advantage of the great frontline view of the beach. Live music everyday and a pleasant, laid back atmosphere. Note - large portions and look out for the daily specials (e.g. 50% off certain wines).

Tiki's is a favorite! Their happy hour starts at 2:00 pm, the meal portions are large and very tasty, and the waitstaff is a lot of fun. This was our first stop after dropping the luggage at the hotel. We were there enjoying beers and mai tais at 2:10 pm and it was a fine start to our vacation. I... More

Lunch menu not as good as dinner menu. We were aiming to try a different restaurant everyday so we never went back for dinner. What we had was decent. The poke is pretty good. Fish tacos are meh.

After a less than satisfactory first experience we decided to give this establishment another try. We decided to grab a drink from the bar to have while relaxing by the pool (at 5.30pm) and found out that one person can not buy two drinks at a time. When I complained about this strange rule I was told the one person... More

The food is clean, fresh and tasty. The best meal we've had so far in Honolulu, topped off with a spectacular sunset over the ocean. We have been there twice this trip and will return again.

A return visit from last summer, with orange umbrellas and a splendid beach/ocean view. One gripe--salads and main courses arrived in a dead heat, so the entree may have had a visit to the heat lamps while we enjoyed the salad. Our waiter also said that my wife couldn't tolerate the Mai Tai she ordered, and downgraded it.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was here. I asked them to remove cheese from my veggie dish so it would be vegan and they gladly did so. I had a nice local beer as well. The server was very nice and personable. An excellent experience for our first night in Honolulu.

Wonderful place to watch the sun go down, while having a drink. It's on the 2nd floor, so you get a great view of the sunset. Not on the beach, but that's a good thing if you don't want tons of people standing in front of you while you enjoy the sunset. Live music on patio!

The first time we went to this restaurant was great. My wife had the swordfish and I had the mahi. We went back a second time and again I took the Mahi. 1 hour after leaving walking back to the hotel I knew something was wrong. I got a headache and had the urge to use the toilet. It was... More
