Description: Top of Waikiki offers one of the most amazing views on earth; unforgettable sunset views, an endless expanse of turquoise blue surf and world famous waikiki beach. The view is matched by Executive Chef Lance Kosaka's Hawaii Regional Cuisine, where he presides over a kitchen dedicated to freshness, quality and is a strong supporter of infusing as much locally grown produce and fresh fish into our award-winning menu.

“Happy Hour at the Top of Waikiki”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Best deal here is to go for happy hour. Nice drinks and appetizers on their happy hour menu and you get to enjoy the ambiance and service at the bar with the restaurant very slowly revolving around with its magnificent view. Highly recommend this as one of your happy hour stops.

“Happy hour cocktails and a meal!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Friends recommended we head to Top of Waikiki for happy hour martinis (from 9.00pm) and watch the world below as the restaurant rotates.

We had a nice meal and quite a few happy hour cocktails! There were lots of people sitting at the bar with nice friendly bar staff serving. The wait staff we had were also friendly and helpful with choosing our food and drinks.

A fun casual night out with a photo booth on your way out for some post martini happy snaps which can be emailed to you!

“Nice views that you pay for”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I love revolving restaurants, so had to include this one. Had soup (corn chowder is wonderful), salad and a dessert. This took me around about one and half rotations. Unlike other restaurants it isn't a complete 360 degree view, nor is it super high. Because dark falls quickly, there isn't a lingering twilight, however it's still pleasant to watch the sun go down on Hononlulu & Waikiki. Nothing was outstanding here compared to the Space Needle or Top of Vancouver. Would like to see it on a sunny afternoon. Service was very good. Plating very attractive. While the view is great, not so great to take photos. If you're dining on a budget--soup starts at $9.

“Great Experience and Food”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

What an interesting place to eat. The restaurant sits atop a building and rotates 360 degrees so you can enjoy a great view of the city, mountains and ocean while you have dinner. It takes about one hour to make one full rotation.

We enjoyed the experience and the food very much..
