Specializing in French/Fusion cuisine, Cafe Miro offers each guest their own choices in a three or four course menu designed by chef/owner Shigeru Kobayashi.

Cafe Miro Ratings and Reviews
Very reliable menu with all selections very good and satisfying.
I had the sole which was a bit "bony" but the meat was tender and flavorful. My spouse had the seafood salad as always. Very good portion and very tasty. Also had the raw oysters for an appetizer which were excellent. Service was attentive and all and all a very enjoyable meal with friends.
The structure of the menu is both unnecessarily complicated and annoying. We wanted one of the $35 three course menus and, because we wanted to have Pate as a starter, we went outside the rules. The result was we were charged by item making the dinner ridiculously expensive for what it was.
If you listen to the wait staff, they spend a massive amount of time explaining the menu. That doesn’t achieve a great deal.
Bye, bye until you get sensible on the menu.
You know... for a restaurant to survive in Kaimuki for 20 years at the very top of the restaurant food – chain, it must be doing something, many things, very right!
Flawless and extremely knowledgeable service
Exquisite and exclusive recipes resulting in over – the – top food.
Worth every penny…
We had a wonderful birthday celebration at Cafe Miro last week. I let them know in advance we were celebrating a birthday and they surprised us throughout the evening with special touches. Our servers were attentive and personable and definitely added to our wonderful experience. The food was delicious and creative. Perfectly seasoned and prepared. Went with the waiters recommendations for the braised pork ribs appetizer and opah in almond sauce and we were very happy. We will definitely come back!
The restaurant offers both ala carte and table d'hote with three choices in the latter depending on the number of courses to be consumed. Wine list is smallish, but corkage is $25 per bottle which seems the prevailing corkage fee in Honolulu.
Food is exquisitely prepared and deliciously sauced. The foie gras donbori (an add-on) is terrific and (at $17 , I think) well worth adding to the usual menu offerings. Service was prompt and friendly.
We both had a steak as the main course -- the tenderloin and the larger rib eye -- both offered in reasonably sized portions and pan fried. Excellent preparation.
The only drawback is the oilcloth tablecloths (as contrasted to linen) but that's a very minor item. Good, dependable neighborhood restaurant.
Staff was super nice and attentive, but not intrusive. Food was delicious and timed well so that courses appeared at the right time. Presentation was very nice with the food appearing appealing. Atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. We very much enjoyed it as a couple.
This was our first visit to Cafe Miro and we were surprised by the wonderful, attentive service throughout the night. The French based menu was interesting enough to know that a return visit is required to explore the menu thoroughly.
French wine drinkers will likely be disappointed in the wine list but a $25 corkage fee will solve this if you have available wines in your cellar.
Cafe Miro is a solid choice for a wonderfully relaxing meal.
There are only few places in honolulu like Cafe MIRO where we can still enjoy delicious french-japanese mix-cuisine prepared by great Japanese Chef. Highly recommended for those couple looking for a romantic quite evening with great food or even with couple friends looking for a quite nice evening and to get together or even to impress someone! Lastly, like their new set menu course which is quite reasonable.
We celebrated two family birthdays recently and went to Cafe Miro for the first time in a long while. There were a number of choices for each course and all were delicious; the seafood salad and rack of lamb had particularly good sauces. Service was excellent but unobtrusive and allowed us to enjoy our conversation. We look forward to returning soon!
We had an excellent dining experience for our anniversary. The food is always great and beautifully presented along with the good service. We've tried almost everything on the menu and was never disappointed. Had several guests from Japan on multiple occasions and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We even had a personal visit from the chef which you normally don't get from other restaurants. If you are celebrating a special occasion, they always do a little extra to make you feel special. We have highly recommended Cafe Miro to our friends.
Foods were great except the bread that was mediocore at best. They should serve good French baguette that matches good French style cuisine. We did not like the vinyl table cloth that killed the beautiful presentation of foods. Table cloth should be white to hilite the cuisine or to match.
