少し離れているせいか、日本人が少なくて良い。
エッグベネディクトは評判通り美味しかったのですが、フレンチトーストもおいしかったです。アサイーボウルは某コーヒーショップの物より、シリアル多めで朝食向きの物で、こちらもおいしかったです。

As we set up her table with the beach view a rare monk seal came onto the beach to watch us eat!The food and service were exceptional. It is probably the best restaurants all around in Honolulu. Although it is expensive, you get great value for your money.

ビーチサイドのピンクと白基調の素敵な雰囲気。
エックベネディクトがとても有名。
たまたまでしょうが、今回の私のポーチドエッグは固めで、ナイフをいれても黄身がトローッとでて来ることはなく、期待はずれ。
味は美味しかった。
その他、パンケーキとワッフルも頂きました。いずれも美味しかったです。

日の出を観ながらの朝食は価値があります。今回は、虹も観れて良い時間を過ごせました。
次回はエックベネディクトに再チャレンジします。

ワイキキから離れ、日本人が少なく外国の雰囲気を存分に味わえました。
ビーチが目の前に広がり、夕焼けを見ながらの食事に母も大満足していました。
シーフードもお肉料理も日本人にあう味付けで、量もたっぷりあったのでコストパフォーマンスもよいと思います!!

夕日を見ながらの食事がしたくて予約
一歳の子ども連れでしたが、スタッフみなさん優しく、子どももタイミングよく寝てくれていたので、ゆっくり食事ができました。
テーブル担当の方が少し日本語を話せる方だったため、まわりは日本人ばかりでした。
おススメも教えてもらえて、満足のいく食事でした。
夕日は少し雲があり、隠れて見えませんでしたがビーチ沿いの雰囲気はとても良かったです。
ただ海沿いは虫が多いですね…

Such a wonderful atmosphere and view. Got there at 7:30am and got a great seat closer to ocean. Ordered the breakfast with pancakes, eggs, spam and sausage and pineapple (small pineapple cut in half and you ate it out of its shell). Also ordered the croissant. My husband ordered the waffles. Food was great, service was wonderful, and view was amazing under the Hawaiian tree. Would definitely go back.

We are from new Zealand and have been to the Hau Tree now 3 times over 15 years. It is my favourite restaurant in the whole world! This time we brought our family with us to celebrate my retirement and pre 70th birthday. I love the pink tablecloths and the twinkling lights in the trees right next to the white sand beach. The food was to die for and the service very impressive. Ted, the restaurant manager communicated with me before we came re receiving real flower leis for us all and ordering a delicious celebratory gluten free chocolate mud cake for dessert.
Our photos were a bit dark but my grandaughter thinks she can lighten them.
We can't wait for our next trip to Honolulu and especially to the charming Hau Tree restaurant at the New Otane hotel.

We were celebrating our anniversary dinner here. The setting is very nice and romantic. We were seated right underneath the tree as was our request and staff was prompt and sincere. They even provided a complimentary cheesecake for our anniversary which is a nice touch. Given the location and view It would be nice if they restrict the place to couples and family without young children just to make it more enjoyable.

We got here right before they opened at 5:30pm for an amazing seat right under the Hau Tree. It was perfect timing to watch sunset on the beach. The servers were attentive but not overly so and dinner felt relaxed. Everything we had was delicious but I especially loved starting with a caprese salad, it was thoughtfully split for us and plenty for two.

I hope I'm lucky enough to come back soon.

You can't beat this restaurant for the view or the romantic ambiance, but you can for the food and service...
In August we were pleasantly surprised when we had dinner at Hau Tree Lanai for my husband's birthday. The food was much better than it was when we were there last several years ago, and the service was outstanding, so much so that we decided to celebrate our December anniversary there. Well, the server we had last time was not the one we got this time. If it wasn't for the other servers and the bartender's help we wouldn't have had food or drinks. Our server showed up to take our order and collect the bill. Other than that, I had to go to the bar to order wine and flag down other servers for our dessert order and check. I sure hope he split his tip with his coworkers. Aside from the service issue, the food was just ok. The sauteed catch of the day was dry and the steak was as not as good as I can make at home. I was hoping we could start coming back more but I think we'll wait until things improve again.
