This is our most favorite restaurant in the Hawaiian Islands. The view is spectacular -quality of food, menu choice, ambiance and services are without a doubt the best! We have been going there every winter since 2006!

We made a reservation in December (more than a month in advance from our dining experience) and specifically requested a romantic table for our five year anniversary. Well when we arrived and checked in for our reservation, there was no acknowledgement of our anniversary and we were then seated at a table for two in the middle of the restaurant... More

Superb. Mum and I were lucky enough to dine here on our recent visit. This restaurant is located at the southern end of Waikiki towards the Diamond Crater. It has the most amazing view looking down Waikiki beach at night with all the lights. They have the restaurant open towards the ocean so you experience the lovely sea breezes. This... More

The food has historically on my previous trips to HONOLULU have been mediocre at best, but the view at sunset from the bar is fantastic. I would not recommend eating there as the food is pricey and not very good, but this is the best place to watch a sunset from the bar. To me it is a sunset drinks... More

For years, this used to be my favorite restaurant in Honolulu, as it truly was 5 stars across the board - food, service, atmosphere and ocean views. However, last night the food and service were just average. A real disappointment. Hopefully, not a new standard.

This is quite simply a wonderful restaurant. Yes, it is expensive but the ambiance, food and view are all excellent. My wife and I go here each year to revel in each other and just be romantic with excellent cuisine and service.

Michel's is located in the beautiful Gold Coast area of Waikiki's Diamondhead and Kapiolani Park. It is right on the beach and has spectacular views of the ocean just 50 feet away and the Waikiki shoreline. The evening sunset view is unsurpassed. And the city lights made post-sunset views almost as good. There has been an excellent classic French restaurant... More
