We had two brunches here during our week in Honolulu, and would definitely give the restaurant a 4.5 star rating for its incomparable view of Waikiki Beach and lovely interior garden. At our first breakfast, we were served by Carlos, who answered all questions fully and resolved some minor issues with the kitchen with grace and efficiency. On our second,... More

It was our first evening meal at the Moana Surf rider and it did not disappoint. My wife had the lobster pasta and I had a steak. The meals were great but not amazing. But the staff and view certainly made up the distance for a very memorable and enjoyable evening. Would recommend without hesitation.

If you don't want conflicted thoughts - order off the menu because where to start at the most amazing breakfast choices on display is going to do your head in! 90% on offer were healthy choices and constantly checked for coolness or heat, topped up or renewed. Fantastic staff who were happy to chat about the meals or even where... More

The restaurant is beautiful, and its location inside Moana Surfrider lets you see both the beautiful building and the dazzling waters of Waikiki. We probably waited 5 minutes to be seated, and got a nice table right in front of the banyan tree. The eggs benedict was quite nice and the serving was big. It was full of flavour and... More

We loved our afternoon tea on the Veranda under the banyon tree in the courtyard. The food was lovely and delicious. Huge kudos to our wonderful server, Koji, who was attentive, informed, and classy!

We ate here each morning as it was part of our hotel package but the buffet food was excellent! Made to order omelets, American breakfast foods as well as catering to Japanese guests. All staff was good but I was particularly fond of Herman an Scott!

The Veranda looked lovely and thought would be a beautiful place for breakfast and confirmed they had gluten free choices on their menu. I tried to order my meal but the server had no knowledge of gluten intolerances or the gluten free choices on their menu. We asked if they could confirm with the chef and the response was to...

We weren't very hungry, so we ordered just the crab cakes and a bit of wine. The service was wonderful and the crab cakes were to die for. The view of the 115 year old canyon tree, lit up with blue light, is incredible.
