You have to order the "Canoe for 2!" A PuPu platter with crab cakes, spring rolls, spare ribs and shrimp. 2 of each item and each was excellent. We were 3 and the waitress suggested we could order a "Canoe for 3". We also ordered the Blackened Ahi appetizer, some of the best Ahi I had since being on Maui... More

Our experience with Roy's Hawaii Kai hasn't been the best in the past. But based on friend's recommendation, we did Roy's in Waikiki and since it was our anniversary, we looked forward to good things. We were not disappointed. Had a cocktail at the bar outside--a busy but friendly venue. Once inside, the wait staff made us feel very welcome.... More

If you want good food with great atmosphere then you have found the place. This does not have the same view as Duke's, but I feel the food is better. Getting close to the same item at both restaurants, Roy's food was a couple of notches higher. I was with a group of 12 and no one left hungry or... More

I am so happy and elated to submit this review of Roy's (Waikiki Beach) restaurant; have been to other top notch restaurants, but never have the (extremely knowledgeable) staff been so warm and friendly! Note: it almost goes without saying, make your reservation early, this place does fill up! We were a party of eight (8) celebrating a birthday and... More

Booked on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews and Roy's definitely lives up to it's reputation. We ate the tasting menu, which was a great variety of good food. Service was excellent and the ambience was pleasantly busy.

We stopped in to have a couple of beers and a small bite to eat. Husband had the onion soup and said it's the best he has ever had! Really lovely ambience and popular

What a terrific meal. We had the pineapple martini to start and then shared a canoe pupu platter of mixed canapes. For main course, I had the Beachwalk which was three types of fish. We split a pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Wine list was pretty extensive too and we picked a nice bottle from California (and we do... More

Always a wonderful place after a day on the beach. Salads are great and crisp BUT my one suggestion is to BRING BACK THE CRAB CAKES! Please. The ambiance is wonderful. Service is impeccable. We love Roy's in so many cities. Hawaii is just even more perfect!

Roy's is consistently good between locations. We are fans of this restaurant from the Hawaii Kai location to the Big Island. You can't beat the fresh fish to the decadent chocolate soufflé. Staff is always friendly and attentive from the hostess to your server. Give it a try and you'll keep returning like we do..
