Prior to our trip to Waikiki it seemed every travel guide and or magazine recommended a visit to La Mariana Restaurant and Bar. So after a day of craziness at the Pearl Harbour Experience (ie: Arizona Memorial, etct) we needed to chill away from the maddening crowds - so we hopped in a cab and off we went....well sort of. Turns out we just assumed the cab driver would know where La Mariana Sailing Club on Sand Island was - he did not. So make sure you take the address with you as you may need the acutual address. Once we got there - it was exactly what I had pictured in my mind. Old tiki, kinda seedy (but good seedy), full of history and stories. We had yummy Mai tais and beers (several) and I ordered a club and my husband a fish dish. Our waitress was cool and her service was exactly what we needed. Her service style was very attentive but not in an annoying way. Food, drinks and service all good. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer as the little bar looked like it was becoming a happening place for people watching, hanging out and shooting the ship. So glad we went to this very cool local haunt and would return again for sure but would stay longer and into the evening. A total hidden gem this place is and a great way to spend Christmas eve!
