Description: The Hau Tree Lanai is perhaps Honolulu's favorite beachside restaurant. Locals gravitate to its ideal location, just outside Waikiki proper and at the beginning of Diamond Head's Gold Coast. The restaurant is located in The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel, an ideal place to start the day, enjoy a leisurely lunch or a romantic sunset dinner.

Plan your meal to coincide with the sunset. We sat right under the tree and the meal was very nice. Bring your sunglasses!

From the road you see a small hotel but you would never guess this restaurant is tucked away so nicely and perfectly on the beach. Perfect for dinners. I loved the delicious food, the service and the location. We found this on our own while looking for another restaurant next door which was closed down. The tree gives the restaurant its beauty and is what makes it so unique

Food was lovely and well presented.
Prices are a little high but not much more than in other restaurants in Waikiki.
View of the ocean is beautiful and setting is quiet
I would recommend it

This must be one of the prettiest and most tranquil settings of any restaurant anywhere! I breakfasted here in August 2013 and was enchanted. (I have previously eaten dinner here on past vacations in Hawaii). The dining area is set around the trunks and below the boughs of large hau trees, only metres from the surf beach. The restaurant is also set right at the end of the beach, away from the rush and bustle of the main part of Waikiki, so it is like dining in an oasis.

Excellent views from the terrace, underneath the shade of the old Hau tree, which added to the ambience of the meal. The lunch menu was excellent and at a reasonable price. In particular we enjoyed the ahi sandwich- which was perfectly cooked and presented.
