“Great food and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

This was an excellent find while vacationing in Oahu. Location is on the beach and the ambiance is very romantic in the evening with the lighting , sounds of surf, and live music. Food was excellent, as was service.

“I always return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I simply adore House Without a Key. I try to go to Hawaii annually and if I'm on Oahu, I always go to this place at least once for sunset cocktails. The ambiance here is spectacular. Live music is accompanied with a graceful hula dancer. Hawaiian potato chips accompany the drinks. A beautiful banyan tree adds to the scenic splendor. After drinks, move back a little farther to the restaurant and continue your evening with a delicious, well prepared meal. You will love House without a Key. Afterward, wander around this scenic, historic hotel. There is an excellent gift shop and a lovely jewelry store inside. Valet parking is free, just validate your ticket at the restaurant.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Casual gourmet with great setting, good service, great atmosphere and ambience which really makes the place unique. The entertainment was really cool with traditional music. Beach view, great sunset...really great place. The Hotel there is just as impressive. The only drawback are the birds begging for crumbs around the tables as well as occasional wind gusts.
