This is the original Roy's and is situated on the Kalaniana'ole Highway. It is on the second floor so you can have a wonderful view of the ocean and sunsets. The food is just fantastic. Happy hour in the downstairs bar is a great time for all.

This place offer the best of Hawaii. Delicious food combined with beautiful scenery and outdoor seating. Great service with very friendly staff. Had the filet mignon and apple cobbler. It was just amazing. Tried the ribs, shrimps and salmon and was all delicious. I would definitely come back here. It's worth the price.

I just love this Roy's and am amazed at the whole fish that they prepare. The only thing left on my plate were the bones and I had to think twice. Just simply outstanding. Service is just as good as the food. Looking forward to the next visit!!!

As usual, we found this restaurant on trip advisor. We tried to get last minute reservations but they could not seat us until 9:30. So we decided to walk from our nearby hotel and were able to ascertain a seat at the bar. What fun watching these guys work. Simply a wonderful, choreographed and entertaining kitchen! They sushi coming out... More

As a tourist, we call in a double order of ribs as we towel off from being at the beach. Roy's opens at 5;30 and they usually have the order ready in 15 minutes and ready for pick up in the downstairs bar. We. Received 10 mouth watering barbecue ribs which we paired with rice at our b & b... More

Hands down the most relaxing al fresco dining under the gas lit tiki torches under the swaying palm trees, chilling with the sounds of the live music. It's funny, you can't think about the fact that you are only feet away from a busy highway. But thats the magic of Roy's. The ambiance is amazing and if you choose to... More

My aunt took me here for my birthday. This is her favorite restaurant and she loves the fried fish( branzano) it was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We shared it and had the crispy Brussels sprout salad also . Edamame is served before and a complimentary dessert was given for my birthday. The chocolate soufflé is outstanding and should not be...

We have been going to this restaurant for so so many years and yes yes blah blah the food is of course AMAZING!!! However food can be amazing anywhere. For me what truly makes an experience and makes a clientele that is loyal to a fault is service. Service and the care someone gives their guests, to treat them as... More

This place blew my mind. The food here is ridiculously amazing. I had the mahimahi and my husband had the steak and they were both utterly amazing. The price is a little high but the food is definitely worth it!!! A must visit
