Once we discovered the wonderful dining, service staff, and panoramic view from the Veranda at Moana Surfrider resort we didn't want to stay away. Our first pass was after a walk along Waikiki beach. Casual seating with a drop dead gorgeous sunset view had everyone's cameras out for sunset. The next visit was lunch/tea. Tasty tea varieties followed by hearty... More

The veranda overlooks the ocean and offers a great afternoon formal tea... tiny sandwiches, a selection of specialty teas, and a variety of desserts are the focus of this tea which stems from the early beginnings of this hotel... a neat treat for a change of pace while in Waikiki

Afternoon Tea at The Veranda is absolutely the best English Afternoon Tea knock-off on Oahu and it's at the beautiful Moana Surfrider Hotel. The views are as beautiful as the place setting.

We were the on Sunday October 2nd for Afternoon Tea. We ordered the First Lady and enjoyed every bit of it. The service was fantastic! The server brings a box with the various teas to smell and then you're able to choose which tea you want. Our table was overlooking the beach! We could hear the waves while sipping our... More

The Veranda at the Beachhouse in the Moana Surfider is a spectacular venue. It sits in the very first grand hotel to grace Waikiki Beach. The structure is plantation style, and exudes a warm, relaxed, elegant feeling that only comes from an authentic century old building that has been lovingly maintained and restored. All of this, sitting on perhaps the... More

If you feel like some well paced indulgence then book in for the high tea. It is a traditional high tea with a Hawaiian twist as you might expect. The food is beautifully presented and a good size to feel satisfied and a little decadent. We had the first lady high tea which came with a handy sandalwood fan -... More

Had a very nice dinner at The Veranda. Chose the beef tartare and the scallops as starters then both chose the special of the day - "Fish of the Moment". This was a great choice! Sweet & tender fish with a potato mash. Cocktails were good especially with a beautiful sunset & gentle Hawaiian live music in the courtyard! Bliss!

We had a very special table for dinner as requested and wonderful celebratory meal with our guests. All of our dinners were prepared nicely. Drinks were good. I can't really take away for this, but we were seated about 45 minutes late. That left us as some of the last people in the restaurant. They didn't rush us out though.... More
