This was our first visit to Hawaii. We spent two nights in Honolulu before boarding the Pride of America for the seven day cruise around the islands and an additional week in Maui. So, we saw a discount at the Outrigger hotel down the street for the Hula Grill. We read good reviews on Trip Advisor so we made reservations. We went a little early so we could get a seat to see the sunset over Waikiki Beach. Wow, we were not disappointed. The restaurant is on the second floor, we got a table overlooking a patio where a band was playing, the temp was perfect, the surfers were out and the sunset was beautiful. The band, Mauna Lua, was so good singing Hawaiian music that we caught them after they were done and bought a CD from them.
The menu is a good variety of fresh seafood dishes as well as meat dishes. Ours were well prepared and the service was top notch. Since my dinner arrived while I was getting the CD, the waiter took it back to the kitchen to keep it warm - a nice touch.
The entire evening was a very pleasant surprise and a great way to start our Hawaiian vacation.
