Roy's Waikiki Beach is another in a luxury chain established by Roy Yamaguchi. I've been to his other places on Oahu, the other islands, and even in Tokyo. His food is always light, tasty and unusual. I also enjoy the drinks here, especially a pineapple martini.

Came by an early Sunday afternoon for a drink at the outside bar. Nice location. Only one other person there, so we had the place to ourselves. Bartender was friendly and poured a nice glass of wine. Bar has about 25 seats and also tables for 2...perfect for a late lunch. The inside dining rooms are air conditioned and a... More

We chose Roys because it was high on Trip Advisors list, and walking distance from our hotel. Reservations essential: you walk past lots of people waiting, who didn't book. Location is nothing special. Our view was onto the street, and most diners wouldn't get that. Its a big open room, crowded, noisy. Our bus driver had recommended the canoe appetiser... More

The food was very good. We both had the tasting menu and it was way too much. Everything was very good, except the main course had too much butter on it for me. The service was also very nice. You should make a reservation. When we were there a lot of people without reservations were trying to get a table.

We've eaten at Roy's many times both at Waikiki and on Kauai. I have to say that there just weren't that many things on the menu that were interesting to us. The butterfish is always terrific, but it seems like they've lost their creative mojo since Roy lost control of the franchise. I tried the whole crispy fish special which... More

After a week on the Big Island, we spent two nights in Honolulu before returning to the mainland. I accessed the Trip Advisor app on my iPhone and researched dinner options for the four of us. Roy's Waikikee appeared to be a sound choice and I booked a reservation through Open Table. We were blown away by its overall excellence.... More

We went to Roy's with a party of 5. I made reservations in advance and was seated immediately on arrival with a wedding party. We ordered several different items on the menu between the five us and also ordered the sampler for two. Every dish was wonderful and an explosion of flavors! I ordered the scallops which were served with... More

We ate here our first night in Honolulu/Waikiki. We had reservations and we were early but they sat us without any problem. The restaurant is located right on the road, surrounded by tall hotels. We were seated at a window table which overlooked the street. There is nothing special about the views or location. My husband ordered a steak and... More

We went to Roy's as we had seen great reviews on trip advisor. We had to wait about 20mins for a table because we didn't have a reservation but that was fine. The food was amazing. We had a seafood combo starter, my husband had the ribs for main and I had the chicken. It was all delicious and I... More
