The restaurant is located in The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel, an ideal place to start the day, enjoy a leisurely lunch or a romantic sunset dinner.

There can be a wait time if you are not staying at the hotel, but don't let that deter you. Perfect for breakfast with a view.

Such a lovely location on the beach under the beautiful old tree. Food was delicious, coffee didn't stop coming, service exceptional. I thought the prices very fair for such a meal that was an experience! will definitely book for dinner at sunset next time I am there.

This is the New Otani hotel restaurant. Seating is outside. Saidly, our seating was after sundown One row of tables allows for a view of the sunsets. We had a nice romantic dinner. My wife had grilled scallops and I had the mixed grill. Both were perfectly prepared.

While the food and parings are excellent, the staff and setting under the trees on the beach make it an over the top pleasurable dining experience away from the noise of Waikiki.

The banyan tree on the beach adds to the charm. The food and service were great. Our waiter made a very enjoyable experience. He offered... More

The view from this restaurant cannot be beat. It is exquisite. Unfortunately, the food is on the other end of the spectrum. Fried, gravy, and not a lot of taste. My favorite part of the Price Fixe menu was the sorbet which was a cleanse for our palet between courses. Prices were high too.

Located in the Waikiki beach area at the end. My friend and I had salads that were a meal. Both delicious and with the view, it is paradise. Staff is... More
