“Roy's with a view..”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

So nice to get a little break from super buzzy Waikiki and enjoy the unspoiled view from the home of Island Fusion- Roy's. Food is very good, service is excellent and everyone seemed to be celebrating a Birthday. All the fish is super delicious- simple but tasty Hibachi Salmon, Butterfish, Opah, Salads and Dessert. Yum yum.. and I love their addictive spiced Edamame! The only dish that I wasn't wild about was the Abalone Casino and that was because the bacon was a bit overwhelming aboard the rich meat-and I personally like Clams or Mussels prepped like this best.
Worth the drive or Cab to escape the hustle for an easy breezy Dinner.

What a beautiful restaurant with so many dishes to choose from . It's best however is its steaks , tender , succulent and divine . Leave room for desert because the choc soufflé is a must .

“The original Roys is the best!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

This is my new favorite restaurant. Yes it is expensive but it is fine dining . The food is always superior at any Roys. Service is always wonderful. But this Roy's has tremendous atmosphere because of a gorgeous view of the ocean and mountains. Went to celebrate A birthday. Can't wait to return for our anniversary.

“Very good”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Very different menu. Excellent in every way. Ate outside on the terrace with just very fresh food cooked just the way you order it. I'm pretty fussy when it comes to food, and this place was right on the money. The staff was excellent. Presentation was very good and desserts were also very good. I would definitely return.

“Disappointed Roy's fans”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I love Roy's. we were so excited to dine in the original restaurant. We made a reservation. We were seated at a table that seemed to be in the way. The food was so-so, not what I expected the amount that is paid. The server was hard to find and not attentive. Roy's is usually out of this world, so we left feeling disappointed. Next time on Oahu, we'll stick with Roy's in Waikiki.
