we go to Roy's where ever we are if they are there too. we enjoy and prefer the other Roy's that is out of Waikiki a ways. most of the Roy's we visit are quiet and comfortable. not this location! some of the food was not up to Roy's and my standards. however, two of our entrees were delicious.

We visited Roy's when we were in Waikiki in late November. We don't usually go to chain restaurants, but since Roy's originated in Honolulu, we made an exception. I'm so glad we did! We had a fabulous meal...fresh fish, prepared perfectly. Appetizers and dessert were also great. But the best part: our server, Dean. He could not do enough for... More

and good service but the food did not wow. Granted we went around 2 pm in a couple of occasions and maybe the main chef was gone. Bar seemed busy with people enjoying drinks.

This was suggested as "THE" place to go in Waikiki. I booked well ahead to celebrate a big b-day. The location on the beach is nice but the place is very noisy. Service was excellent but I couldn't help but feel that they were rushing us out. The fish was cooked beautifully but the prawns were over cooked. Desert of... More

Good pan Asian creative dishes. Went to this location twice and found the décor and environment disappointing. The place is one big room and décor similar to the Denny's across the street. The place is very loud and sound carries so it makes it a great place for spies to meet their handlers but less intimate for those not breaking... More

We stopped by Roy's and absolutely loved it. Definitely great food and great drinks. We sat on the patio which was awesome as well. Our server suggested perfect meals.... didn't push us into unneeded food or anything. Go!

I don't often give a 5 star review to a non-vegan restaurant, but I think Roy's deserved it. The food here is excellent, and so are the staff. They were busy the evening we were there, which meant a couple of our courses took a while to arrive, but they were very apologetic (the manager also came round and apologised)... More

My wife and I visit many restaurants when we visit Oahu. Roy's is our favorite for several reasons. They have a nice atmosphere and the service and food selection is always very good. Our favorite meal is their signature Butterfish. During our three week stay in the area we ate there three times.
