Great place for cocktails at sunset. The surroundings are exceptional with the legendary Royal Hawaiian Hotel and the beach. Good choice of drinks for a reasonable price. Not to be missed if you want a romantic place to start the evening

The Mai tai was invited here so you have to have that while here. Sit on the beach and enjoy the views of the busy Waikiki. Also beautiful sunset though the sun doesn't set in the water here, but the lights are still beautiful. Service was a bit slow and we rated only 4 because they were out of the... More

This is the place to get an awesome Mai tai just steps from Waikiki beach. Anytime is a perfect time to dip on a cocktail and take in the views.

This bar is located outside and on the beach. The staff is very friendly. Remember you cannot take alcohol on the beach. The lunch menu is fairly limited. The food was decent.

If you're wanting a Mai Tai, this is your place. The bar menu has an entire page of Mai Tai variations to choose from. However, there are many drinks you can order as they have a full bar staffed by the best bartenders! The food served is delicious and the venue is outside with umbrellas that will shield you from...

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Hawaiian and quickly became fans of the Mai Tai Bar. You literally walk from your beach chair to a table and it's Mai Tai time. Good food. Great service. Chelsea quickly became our favorite waitress (we only sat at her tables!). And they have The Best Mai Tai/s

We arrived in Waikiki too early to check into our hotel. We went to the Mai Tai bar and sipped pink champagne, while we sat on pink chairs under a pink umbrella and people watched. It was really special. Our waitress even made a turtle our of the wire from our champagne cork. Thoroughly recommend having a drink at this... More

Mai Tai's were great! We were only there for a short time. But it was a great atmosphere, live music and reasonably prices drinks. There where bar top tables and also couch like chairs for seating.

Located in the back of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel right off the beach, this outdoor bar serves spendy but delicious Mai Tai's with a great beach view. They put out snacks for us when we arrived and made a beautiful drink. We were essentially alone at the bar for about an hour/ Staff was attentive, shooed away the pesky pigeons,... More
