Relaxing and beautiful

The outside lanai is great for an evening cocktail. We had appetizers and drinks by the ocean, I would go there again in a heartbeat!

This is the most romantic spot to relax on Waikiki beach. The tropical drinks add to the allure. Yes it is pricey......but you are paying for an experience. There are plenty of tables so don't worry about the crowds.

We had dinner on the Veranda. The staff was friendly and helpful with our dinner selections. The food was wonderful and the view of the ocean and Waikiki beach was beautiful. If you are visiting Oahu I would make it a priority to have dinner here.

I thought it was very pretty here but it wouldn't be on my list again. Service wasn't that good and food was just average. To be honest would probably give this place another shot as I really wanted to like it! Every restaurant has an off day and I think we just hit The Banyan Veranda's day when we went.

such a great selection at this serve yourself bar. Food is very good and it's all you can eat. We had breakfast included and ate mid morning so you don't need lunch! Excellent.

A seriously ill friend of ours asked us to have a Mai Tai for him under the Banyan tree at the Ala Moana Hotel. It was beautiful. We chose a table next to the tree so we could enjoy an ocean view in front of us and a view of the charming, historical, Victorian hotel behind us. The Mai Tais... More

We had dinner at the Banyan Beach Club one evening, just picking it at random as we walked along the beach. The food was good, cocktails were good and the experience of sitting right on the beach for dinner was just lovely. The surrounds of the Westin Surfrider were lovely too - felt like we were in a grand old... More
