Delicious!

Great food! very convenient location... my only complaint is you can't see the ocean (there's a building blocking the view) Roys is famous in Hawaii (local chef)

Roy's is always a must do when we visit Oahu. I have been to Hawaii a few times and we always make a point of dinning at Roy's Waikiki. On this trip we visited twice, food is fresh, innovative and amazing, the service is always impeccable and friendly. Great cocktail/wine list. Love this place!

My first visit to Roy's was in Naples Florida, followed up by eating at Roy's Chicago. In the past few years, I was disappointed and expected a much better dinning experience. It was okay and the service was above average, but the waited couldn't explain the dishes very well. My son and I had the sampler plate for two which... More

The hardest thing is getting great people and they have. Friendly and engaging from the second you walk in. A step above the franchised Roy's on the mainland. Would avoid the booths unless you are not so tall, they just dont have enough depth for your legs. Had the ribeye, which was tougher than expected, but flavorful and perfectly cooked.... More

We booked Roy's for the last night of our Oahu stay and we were not disappointed. We tried the taster menu with wine and thought it was excellent value at $70 each. I'm not a dessert fan but the chocolate fondant was to die for as were the complimentary desserts to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays. Felt a bit guilty... More

Almost across the road from the Outrigger Hotel is the famous Roy's restaurant. We were not disappointed by the extensive menu and it was difficult to choose what to eat. We will just have to return one day. Worth the reputation this restaurant has earned and held for decades for food and service!

We had Poke, Sushi and Roy's special Ribs. The food is very fresh, well presented and tasty. Our server was super knowledgable and super attentive. Recommended, but be prepared for ~$35 a head for your entree.

This is a great restaurant. Bookings advised. The best meal I've had for ages. The butter fish was to die for. Staff just amazing. Even your water glass was continuously filled. Staff very courteous friendly and efficient . Entrees amazing.. Golden rolls heavenly.. Just the best. An unforgettable culinary experience. A must do!

Roy's is always great in Hawaii, we had drink and pupu's here one night and dinner at the bar the next. Food was as expected, superb, we had the Asian Prawns, and Chinese style Monkfish. Delish!
