“Lovely sunset spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We ate dinner here on the patio at sunset our first night in Honolulu. The live music made us feel like we were really in Hawaii. Cocktails were great and food was good too.

“Food was pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This place is seafood only, but it comes highly recommended amongst everyone. Did not disappoint. They often have live music and a great view.

“Our favorite hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We enjoy the memories we have had for 55 yrs. of memories and some of them right there. You can forget the entire busy Waikiki beach, if you want or walk it. The staff and the lovely rooms are pristine...they have thought of everything. We especially like the name "House Without a Key" because years and years ago it was the only one on the beach with open living and dining.

“Sunset and Hula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

One of the best place for sunset and hula performance. The Mai Tai is very good :) This place is romantic and relaxing after a hot sunny beach day:)

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Nice location but the food is marginal and overpriced. I know that gourmet dining is not about quantity but I have never seen smaller portions in my life. Giant silver serving plates and food on it that you need to find with a microscope. I would not go back there.
