“Pricey but Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We always enjoy at least one afternoon or evening sitting on the grassy area sipping a drink and enjoying the most wonderful coconut cake you'll ever eat. Sometimes they will bring a basket of Maui chips too. We would love to try their buffet breakfast sometime but at $32/each it is a bit over our budget.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Simple elegence. Unsurpassed service, music, location and Hula. We like to go before sunset to catch a possible green glow while being entertained. Also like just having cocktails and appetizers outside.

“For a special night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The mai tais were invented here (so they say). Best tasting mai tai ever - and we have had a few! The food was excellent, with evening traditional Hawaiian entertainment - romantic and relaxing. Not too expensive, about the same as other restaurants in this category - get there at 5:00 p.m. for best seating. No reservations.

“Sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Hawaiian entertainment is first rate. You will be transformed rather than feel you are at a cheesy tourist attraction. The view of Waikiki at sunset is spectacular. Have a great mai tai and appetizers for a light dinner. The waiters may be snobby but put up with it!

“Relaxing and Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I had such a great time relaxing and having a drink or two with dinner. The music is fantastic to go with the ambiance and atmosphere of Hawaii.This was a great way for me to unwind and not be caught up in the busy pace of downtown.
