“A true positive experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I've been to Honolulu several times and I always find myself needing to go to House Without a Key for cocktails or dinner. This place is really a must go if you are in Honolulu. I recommend going right before the sunset so you can enjoy a wonderful view of the ocean while drinking a glass of the best Mai Tai you will ever have.

“Great Hawaiian Ambiance & Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We always go to this restaurant when we are in Waikiki. It's located in the Halekulani Resort and Spa-a beautiful place itself. What makes this so special to me is the ambiance. It's located right on the water: it has a great view: they have music and hula dancing every evening from 5:30-8:30pm. Everyone wants to be there for the sunset. Since I've been going here for years, usually in the late summer or fall, everything I've eaten is good. But, what I really go for is their Coconut Cake....it's to die for....if you like Coconut.

“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”

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