A Saturday night (weekly) event on the beach at the Mauna Kea, this was the highlight of our belated honeymoon in Hawaii. Obviously you pay for the view ($90 per person not including alcohol) but the buffet food lines were the best I've ever seen. Table one was jumbo shrimp, freshly made California rolls, oysters in the shell & sashimi...all amazing. the main food line was clams, prime rib (slightly overdone for my taste) and half a lobster...all you can eat and you'll want to. I didn't even make it to the starch table (potatoes, corn, etc.) but the desserts (ice cream and macadamia nut chocolate torte) were the proverbial icing on the cake. The sunset was spectacular and the service was attentive but not intrusive. With two drinks a piece the bill was $240...but it was more than worth every penny between the food and view. A must for romantic couples.
