Skip this place unless you want terrible food and a cliche Hawaii vibe. Chain restaurant food at its very worst.

オープンテーブルから予約して、座席のリクエストや、連れの誕生日にデザートを用意して欲しい旨英語にてリクエスト入れてましたが、何も伝わっていなかったです!こちらからではなく別途リクエストが必要なようです。食事は美味しかったし雰囲気もよかったです!しかし時期によっては夕日は建物に隠れてみえません!

We had brunch on the lanai which over looks the beach. The weather was perfect. The staff was friendly. The dishes we ordered were all unique and delicious. The Strawberry Mochi Waffles were to die for!

予約していたからか、海の一番近いテラス席にしていただき、ハワイの最後の夜ご飯だったのでとっても嬉しかったです!
ただ風が強く、雨も降ったり止んだりだったせいなのか、たいまつが点けられず、メニューは見えないほど暗かったです(笑)
でもスタッフの方は、気さくで日本語も交えながら話してくれ、
オーダーもスムーズにできました!

お料理はほんとにどれもとってもおいしく、感動しました!

また違うお料理を食べてみたいと思いました!

Strawberry waffle and eggs Benedict were very tasty. We had to send back the breakfast potatoes because they were cold and old. The morning manager took it off our bill and apologized which made the situation right. We would eat here again. Coffee was great tasting, not super smooth but decent.

Had lunch which was fine. Coconut seafood chowder good, chunks of fish, shrimp, ( but only ) 1 scallop with squash, green beans, pile of bean sprouts & rice in large bowl. He had burger with fries. Generous portions, neither of us could clean our plates. Nice open air venue under awnings overlooking Outrigger pool & patio facing ocean. Only noise was from kids in pool. Service friendly, a bit slow.

Staff was very accommodating, helpful and courteous. Food was really tasty with a creative menu. Shares a kitchen with the more famous Duke’s (same ownership) so consider it just as good as Duke’s with the same or better ambiance but less wait time. Would definitely return.

Great view of the water. The sunset is just a little out of view but it's still really nice to be there for the sunset. You get a great view of the various colors of the sky. Request a seat by the rail for the best perspective. The food is quality but a bit pricey.

We were staying next door at the Westin Moana and looking for a less noisy alternative to Dukes. We were seated immediately on a busy Saturday evening, the service was prompt and friendly, our server was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We each ordered something different and all entrees were just excellent. We shared a slice of Macadamia nut ice cream pie at the end to finish up a great evening.

VERY disappointed regarding the fact that I made an online reservation via OpenTable ONE MONTH IN ADVANCE. I requested the best ocean view table and the most requested server. When I arrived with our birthday girl guest of honor I was told we had to wait until our entire party of 5 was present to be seated. Not only that, we were not assigned a reserved ocean front row table. Manager said we'd have to WAIT 25 minutes??? What is the point of making a reservation a month in advance if they will not honor my requests??? Who cares about the food or anything else really after that bad first impression! I would not go back at my own choice.

Our breakfast: tropical pancakes, Portuguese bao benedict with side of bacon & side of papaya. Nice fruit topping on pancakes, pancakes average. Good eggs Benedict, good light hollandaise, fluffy Bao base, wish there had been more than 2 slices of sausage. Generous side of bacon, delicious 1/2 papaya.
Lovely outdoor table overlooking beach

This is one of my favourite places for breakfast in Waikiki. Gorgeous view, not too crowded or noisy at breakfast time (although it can get too loud in the evenings with the bands playing), and the food is consistently good. Always start my vacation off with a breakfast here!
