I stayed at the New Otani hotel and took advantage of having breakfast in this wonderful setting under the big old Hau tree. The food was very good, nothing exceptional, but prepared and presented well.

Can't beat the view form this "right-on-the-beach" restaurant. They even have a couple of trees right in the middle of their floor. Great service. Good food. NEED Reservations for almost anytime as it is VERY busy.

The location was great; right next to beach and ocean. it was outdoor dining with beautiful trees. The restaurant is at a hotel about mile east of main waikiki area. We usually eat early, but I still made reservations - the food was good, but not remarkable for the pricing..

We recently took some out of town visitors to this picturesque restaurant. Located in the New Otani Hotel, it fronts Waikiki Beach, with outdoor patio seating down the stairs from the hotel lobby. There's valet parking-- a bar with lounge off the lobby. Unfortunately, this evening, the weather was iffy and we had to move from our nicely situated table... More

A long time favorite of mine for romantic, beach side dining without the drama of being in busy Waikiki. This place is a little off the path of the mobs in Waikiki, and nestles at the base of Diamond Head mountain in the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel. You literally sit under a big Hau tree and listen to the... More

When you are dining at any upscale hotel venue, it going to be pricey and this is no exception. The locale is beautiful. We had breakfast there and the cool, quiet view of the empty beach was great! Portions are large and selection was good.

We hiked from Waikiki to top of diamond head and back and this was a perfect stop for lunch. The terrace is a beautiful setting under a few trees and shaded in the mid day sun. We both had ahi fish sandwiches prepared differently and they we excellent. The seasoned fries were crisp on outside but still fluffy on inside.... More

I am only writing this review as a vegetarian for dinner menu so if you are a meat eater or interested in brunch look at other reviews for guidance. I was looking for an ocean view restaurant for our anniversary. I settled on this one because it had two vegetarian options on the menu and that was two more than... 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.
