We stopped here to get a drink after a long day walking around. The drink was super while I think the service girl was kinda cocky.

On my last night at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, I visited Mail Tai. It was a great way to end the vacation, as I listened to traditional Hawaiian music, accompanied by a Hula dancer. The band plays almost nightly. Have a Mai Tai and relax.

The atmosphere of the outdoor bar was great! Beautiful setting, live music and hula dancing, and great service. Different variety of mai tais, and a good selection of cocktails. Overall a lovely evening on the pricier side, but definitely worth it for our last night...More

Were there some eleven years ago and still the same. Very good drinks, peacefully and a little more secluded from the beach. Worth stopping for a drink after a long walk on Waikiki Beach

adult beverages that were deemed delightful by our group. Of course the namesake Mai Tai is credited with originating here. Nice view of the Pacific Ocean, beach, etc. Walk through the hotel to see the architecture!

Hi, I had the short rib French dip sandwich and it was very good. My hubby had a burger, he also said it was good. Be aware, it is pricey, and the service was slow, but we enjoyed it none the less.
