Delightful night, we had wanted table as close to beach as possible and we were very lucky securing the best table! You cannot reserve and there are 2 sittings for dinner so arriving early for our 7.30 booking proved very important. Choices of food are wide and all very tempting. Food and wine prices are as expected with a fine... More

We recently had dinner here. There are an abundance of wait staff, who all looked after us well. The food was in general good. None of it verged on being great. Whilst the flavours were well crafted, the consistency of each dish varied. The prices were high, but this is beachside dining at Waikiki in a very nice setting.

We booked afternoon tea at the Veranda. We first tried afternoon tea here about 10 years ago and it had a bit more of a Victorian experience and most of the veranda was tea service. We noticed this time many people were having lunch and those having tea were seated closest to the beach at one end so we were... More

We booked the verandah afternoon tea service and were blown away by the high tea and all the tea flavours as well as the relaxed atmosphere at the Moana. We would have liked to know that the finger sandwiches were not really sandwiches but more hors deouveres as one of our part had a food intolerance but it was all... More

After 2 weeks of searching for really good food in Hawaii we were lucky enough to done here. We actually dined here on out last two evenings as it was so good the first time that we decided to return for our last dinner. We stuck with seafood for both meals and loved all of the dishes.

At least once a stay at Hawaii. Good location and great seats near by the Waikiki Beach. We go there for having breakfast. Fruits, vegetables and foods. It tastes great. Simple but tasty. We can also have 4 foods by order; French toast, Waffle, Pan cake and Omullet. Those are supposed to start baked after the order. 滞在中に一度は行きたいレストラン。 朝食ビュッフェがオススメ。 いかにもアメリカンな濃い甘い味付けではなく、素材を活かしている。...

The location facing a park like setting with the sea beyond and those gentle sea breezes can't be beaten and the food is very good as well.

Sometimes when you are on the beach, it can certainly be a bit difficult to find a place that is fun and shady.
