Amazing Atmosphere and Food!

We spent a day touring Oahu with Ron Wong, Oahuspottours, and ended our day at this restaurant. We told Ron we wanted a place with great food and a Hawaiian atmosphere. It was just what we had hoped for. The staff was so wonderful and attentive. The food and drinks were plentiful and delicious... read more

This is one of our family favorites and we take our guests here whenever possible. It's changed a bit over the last 20 years and we miss the big peacock chairs but it still holds its tiki charm. The drinks are fine and the food good although some food is excellent. Ahi poke is the one that falls in the... More

We have been to this restaurant before & had great food & service. But today it was terrible!! Waited for over an hour with our 2 grandchildren & then my husband finally told them we needed to leave. How long does it take to make nachos, Caesar salad & kids chicken nuggets. NO apologies from the staff on the terrible... More

Friends that live on the island suggested we go to LaMarina for dinner tonight. As soon as they suggested I remembered seeing the restaurant on No Reservations, so we said yes. I trust Anthony Bourdain. The place was fantastic. If you are of a certain age you remember every tiki bar you ever saw on tv or were lucky enough... More

The tiki bar ambiance, the key board player, the pu pu's with a pitcher of Kona Big Wave and dining with a great couple made this a very enjoyable evening. The main course entrees were also excellent. Great dining experience. BTW we are repeat customers, although it has been about a year since our last visit. Will not be that... More

This is one of the last authentic tiki bars left - it opened in 1957 and it is by a marina about a 15 minute drive out of Honolulu. When your Gps stops at a warehouse follow the slightly faded sign to La Mariana sailing club. There is a sweet little gift shop there with a very nice lady working... More

You need wheels to get to this little gem. La Mariana is next to a marina and is a genuine tiki bar/restaurant. The food is OK, the drinks are great and the ambiance is wonderful. It doesn't look like much from the outside but once you get around to the water side of the building you are greeted by lovingly... More

This is a great place to go to for a casual drink and fun with friends. Nice views over the marina. Very friendly staff. It was actually good to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki for a day. Very similar to smaller sailing clubs in Australia. A step back in time. Food was very good not gourmet... More

Good old fashioned Tiki bars are few and far between in Hawai'i these days. La Mariana is a notable exception. It is classic tiki ambiance with tikis, glass floats, and the waterfall (which is restored to working order). It is not so easy to locate, which is fine because it is not overcrowded. The drinks are reasonable and the pours... More
