If you are visiting Waikiki, and you want a charming restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of the beach, this is the place. Literally tucked away at the end of Kalakaua Avenue, the restaurant is tucked inside one of the older Waikiki hotels. Delightfully decorated in pink, the somewhat small restaurant overlooks Waikiki very near to Diamond Head. With... More

Beautiful location and best French toast ever - with macadamia nuts, fresh raspberries, blueberries and coconut syrup! Yum! My husband had eggs benedict and they were excellent, very large serving. Catch #22 bus to get there or it's a nice walk.

We had visited this restaurant on our honeymoon in 2003 and had a fantastic experience. On our latest trip to Oahu we wanted to visit it again to see if it still retained its charm. It certainly has!! It is difficult to find, but so worth it. The setting is very romantic, right on the beach under large trees. There... More

For our last night in Waikiki, my husband and I wanted to have dinner somewhere special and we'd heard a lot of great things about Hau Tree Lanai. I made reservations in advance and when we arrived, the hostess greeted us and seated us promptly. We were seated at a wonderful table under the Hau Tree just feet (maybe inches)... More

A friend recommended this restaurant. It was not easy to find but persistence paid off. The Hua Trees are over 200 years old and the restaurant is on the terrace where Robert Louis Stevenson visited frequently. My lunch was so good that I returned for dinner. The Chef's Prix Fix selection with the accompanying wine selection is excellent.

We haven't eaten here since our last visit 6 years ago and for both of us it was better than we remembered. I was aching for fish and not disappointed in the sashimi, followed by the local snapper with crab and avocado. The man settled on soup of the day and grilled Mahi Mahi and declared both excellent. Really good... More

We were in Oahu for a one week vacation and decided to visit Hau Tree Lanai on our last day. Make sure to book online in advance to avoid disappointment. The food was delicious. We tried a salmon benedict and a French toast and shared. The portions were large, the flavours excellent. Staff were attentive. We didn't have a better... More

The Hau Tree Lanai is perhaps Honolulu's favorite beachside restaurant. Locals gravitate to its ideal location, just outside Waikiki proper and at the beginning of Diamond Head's Gold Coast. The restaurant is located in The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel, an ideal place to start the day, enjoy a leisurely lunch or a romantic sunset dinner.
