Save your money, the breakfast buffet is terrible..
Tasteless watery so called scrambelled eggs, mushy ham.
Simply put cold and nasty, and they seat you as if you were in a Sardine can...
Also the aquarium glass is so cloudy you can barely see the fish....

Breakfast buffet terrible food. No variety. No omelette bar. No variety of breakfast meats, only had bacn & corn beef hash (bacon really salty). Very disappointed on a buffet type breakfast, especially with the price per person ($25pp).
Service also terrible. Waiter asked if my husband was done with his plate, my husband answered "no, still working on it" & waiter takes it away anyways...

One of the best places to eat, pricey but worth it. Sunday brunch is our choice for here. Crab legs, omlets to order and sushi and steak, you name it, it's here. And there is a 2 or 3 story fish tank next to you. Watch them feed the fish. A must stop in Waikiki

An outstanding selection of seafood buffet. There is no superlatives good enough to mention just how great this restaurant was. Even the table water was the sweetest that I have ever drank.
The crabs and lobsters were smashing and every other type and style of sea food was there for your selection - fresh and cooked to perfection.
Then there it the "Mermaid" show - a well orchestrated display of under-water acrobatics done by a wonderful lady dressed as a mermaid - tail and all. When you think of the effort required and the delightful display you gain an appreciation of just how great this show is.
