Very nice with great service but the lovely music stops at 8:30 which is far too early! Food was tasty and well presented. Good reasonably priced wine list.

Great spot in our hotel (Halekulani). Nice breakfast buffet, very good lunch menu (vegetable burger, King crab sandwich, ahi sandwich are our favorites) and also a very nice place for a drink (great mojitos). The Hawaiian music and hula dancers are the best and I love the fact tha the music also drifts into our room and adds ambience to... More

We were recommended this by a local on our flight from LA to Oahu, so we went there one evening. You couldn't book, but there was room when we got there.

Was recommended by fellow travelers. We were all disappointed with the menu, small portions, and steep prices. My husband refused to pay $22 for a hamburger. I ended up getting an appetizer ($16), everyone else ordered the fish-of-the-day which was a very small portion of fish with a bit of garnish. Flavor was nice. Would not recommend this restaurant if... More

We had happy hour here before our dinner at LaMer. This is a beautiful setting overlooking the ocean and Diamond Head. There was a three piece Hawaiian band playing with Hula girl. They were excellent. The beverage service was top notch. Prompt service. The drinks were great. Mahalo.

Had cocktails overlooking Diamond Head. What a treat for the eyes and a stream of vacationers parading by on the Waikiki Beach Walk next to the bar. This place is just so relaxing with the Hawaiian music, hula dancing and superb customer service. A great place to visit!
