Birthday dinner

I had a birthday dinner here and it was great! Food and wine were perfect. Ambience is somewhat noisy, but on par fro the location. Recommend you order the butterfish, which was delicious.

While the BBQ spare-ribs were tasty, the rest of the food I have experienced in multiple visits here have been bland and overpriced. The service is spotty at best and the best thing I can say about this restaurant is it has a good location next to the Trump Hotel. The poke here was average at best but very overpriced.... More

We had eaten at Roy's on Maui several years ago and had a wonderful meal, so when we found ourselves in Honolulu recently, we made sure to include Roy's in our selection of places to dine. Unfortunately, our meal was a disappointment - from the seating to the service to the food itself. After reading several of the other reviews,... More

Roy's is an Hawaiian institution. I ate their eight years ago and they have expanded greatly since then to many other locations outside of Hawaii so I was concerned its quality would lean toward the commercial, money-generating side. I was wrong. We had a reservation for late, like 930p, but got their an hour early and were promptly seated without... More

We ate here on our first night in Waikiki. Everything we had was excellent. We sat outside - good people watching. I had the tomato salad to start and my husband had the ribs. We then split the Beach Walk Trio. For dessert we had the pineapple upside down cake. Great service! We loved it so much we went to... More

We often eat at Roy's in other cities especially in Maui. This was our first visit to this location and as usual, we were not disappointed. Special recommendation for the fish trio entrée.

A little disappointed from previous experiences at other Roy's, but still a good meal. Mahi-mahi was a good choice from all at our table.

We chose Roys as it was recommended, and across the road. What a fantastic place. We were greeted well, only waited two minutes (with no booking), and shown to our table. Our waiter, Tyler, was professional and friendly, and advised us well on our choices. The appetiser (Beachwalk canoe?) was incredible, every item delicious. Then we delighted in sushi and... More

I have to agree with all of the other reviewers- impeccable and polished service, great food, great location, delicious flavors, excellent menu variety, and great for families. You cannot beat the 3 course deal either especially in touristy Waikiki -appetizer sampling and both entree selections we selected were fantastic (short ribs and macadamia nut crusted local fish). Portions were generous.... More

Once you enter the staff seem to treat you like a 'king'. Each course of food melts in your mouth. This quality food and first class service. Forget the the bill; just think of the exprience. This restaurant is equal to any we have visited in Melbourne. A special menu followed by some fantastic choices of special dishes of food.... More
