The hostess was rushed and inattentive. The other staff members (who filled our water and cleared away the dishes) were helpful and solicitious.
The dish that we ordered - seared tofu - was not seared and not marinated and not even warmed up. I have eaten tofu at many restaurants around the country and had it deliciously prepared. Roy's tofu dish was extremely disappointing.
Since this restaurant has received so many awards, I would have expected EVERY dish on the menu to be special.

Our first dinner stop...but only because we were exhausted and it was close. SURPIRSE...it was delicious. So impressed we went back for a second visit. Second verse, same as the first. One of the staff members remembered us almost a week later! Their sauces are incredible, fish always done to perfection and the hearts of palm entre...wonderful.

We have been going to Roy's for a special treat for years. Recently, we celebrated birthdays and an anniversary there and it did not disappoint. Each person was delighted with their meal and Roy's added a special greeting. We tried several different things and each was delicious. It is so nice that year in and year out they maintain their reputation for very good food and friendly service. Would highly recommend.

I'd read so many good things about Roy's but was really disappointed with the food...service people were very friendly but the food was sub-par. This was in Poipu. That said, I also ate at the Tavern near Hanalei and the food there was very very good!

Roy's is famous all over Hawaii. Although it is a chain the restaurants in Hawaii are much better than on the mainland. I have at least three meals here whenever I saty in Poipu for a week.
