My wife and I really enjoyed our lunch at Hau Tree. We were staying next door at the Lotus and decided to not have dinner at Hau Tree because, frankly, the prices seemed very high (not unlike many of the Waikiki area restaurants). The lunch, however, was delicious, the portions were large and the shade provided by the trees made... More

My wife and I had a wonderful pre 30th anniversary dinner. This venue is beautiful. We came for sunset. Our table was situated under this magnificent tree that had a nice view of the ocean and sunset. Mike, our waiter, and staff did a great job taking care of us for our special night. I had a Mai Tai to... More

This is the restaurant attached to the hotel at which we were staying which was top-notch- right on the beach but just downstairs at the hotel. Of greater significance however, is that we could sit where Robert Louis Stevenson did some of his Hawaii writing! The Hau Tree itself is fantastic- all encompassing and reasonably splendiferous.

We went here for our last dinner in Hawaii and it was such a wonderful choice! Since we had made an early reservation, we were immediately seated by the railings and got a gorgeous review of the beach as well as the sunset later on. The outdoor setting of the restaurant makes a laid back, lovely atmosphere that is perfect... More

Sit and dine in a restaurant built around a tree! The ambiance was nice and service excellent! If you are in Waikiki, try to dine here! We did not sit directly next to the rail, which looked straight out onto the beach, but it turned out to be ok because you could see and hear the beachgoers. Also, we went... More

We decided to visit Hawaii to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and we knew immediately where we would have dinner on our anniversary night: Hau Tree Lanai! Our reservations were for 6:00 because the manager told us that was when there was the best chance of getting a table by the rail. He was right...we got the last table; perhaps... More

My mother ordered the classic eggs Benedict, which tasted a little raw, and I ordered the ahi burger, which tasted delicious! Green pesto, lettuce and tomatoes wonderfully complemented the huge ahi fillet which I ordered well done. The beach right outside was nice to watch as well. A nice, quiet and comfortable setting. A bit pricey, but huge portions!

We ate at this restaurant on 06/21/2014 for dinner. We were staying next door and were very tired from flying all day so our valet suggested we try walking next door instead of driving. What a treat! There were 5 of us including 2 children. We all loved our food! I am a total foodie and a cook so I... More
