Great location and Hawaiian feel. Share a cocktail at sunset then stay for a relaxing meal in the courtyard.

House Without a Key is located on the beach with wonderful sunset views. Every time we've been there they've had a Hawaiian band with a hula dancer. All very tasteful and serene. This visit was no exception. The weather was perfect. The sunset was almost too good to be true and the music was wonderful. Prices here are a little... More

We dined here twice and on both occasions had two slight concerned with our meals. Mostly I was worried of undercooked chicken. And the second time three family members ordered the same dish which all tasted different. Prices are a little high but not too bad, not excellent value for money however.

Another perfect place for sunset drinks set in the grounds of Halekulani Hotel. Hula dancer, Hawaiian band. A classy venue, perfect garden setting for a sunset drink before dinner. Have always visited with our kids (3 & 6) who seem to just love to seem to sit there and watch.

but wish we could have made it back. The coconut cake was really good and my daughter had marshmallow ice cream. The cocktails were well done. The view is amazing - you sit right outside enjoying the nearby beach views. I could see plenty of incredible looking foods around us but we were only there to snack at the time.... More

Watch the former Miss Hawaii Luau as the sun sets behind her over the crystal blue water. Stunning cocktail list, I recommend their signature Mai Tai. A perfect spot for pre dinner drinks and beautiful people watching. A short walk from glamorous restaurants such as Nobu and Roys.

Hotel itself is expensive to, but what sets this apart is that there is little foot traffic at its ocean front location so very peaceful and conducive to romance, unlike the sometimes spring break atmosphere elsewhere on the beach.

The burgers are off the charts and the outlook is amazing. The grassy area is great for kids who can't sit still and the service was excellent. We stayed down the road at the Sheraton and walked up for dinner and cocktails with our four young daughters 3 of the 5 nights we stayed in Waikiki. The had classic Hawaiian... More

The view of the Pacific Ocean from this poolside restaurant is just fantastic. I highly recommend the fish and chips.

We visited here on Thursday, July 10th. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and we were staying across the street at the Trump. I was told by many that going for sunset drinks and appetizers was an absolute must when visiting Waikiki and we were not disappointed. The passion fruit margarita was the best!!! We sat and listened to Hawaiian music... More
