    What an incredible find. After eating our way through the islands this little hidden gem did not disappoint. Unique location, incredible food options, warm hospitality, and very enjoyable music. Make sure to order some of their signature dishes.

    The food was very enjoyable especially the fish. The oysters did not taste fresh and clean. Very fishy after taste. I feel the sides that comes with the fish are over priced and bland. That being said, we still enjoyed our time at your restaurant. Excellent service and attitude. Thank you guy's.

    Had an amazing birthday dinner here! I had the octopus, oysters, and blue marlin crudo. Delicious, fresh, out of this world. Singapore sling has great as well as the banana pudding and coconut sorbet. And the manager and waitress were so welcoming and informative. Loved everything about jt here. So happy we found this place—we will be back!!

    For dinner, Mahina & Sons has a very nice/casual atmosphere. The service is very friendly and attentive and made us feel welcomed and "at home". Food was delicious and done well. It isn't "typical" american, asian, hawaiian, pacific rim food but you'll be able to find something to your taste and it will be delicious.

    Last year my dad was in the hospital and we could not celebrate his birthday with him. This year we made sure to take him someplace special where he would enjoy the food and ambience to celebrate 85! Both our hostess and server were wonderful and knew how to relate to an older Hawaiian uncle and were so lovely, both inside and out. We had the smoked ahi and vegetables and he’e for our appetizers and shared the Family Feast and as expected, it did not disappoint. I was also happy that we sang “hauoli lā hānau” to to him with a candle in his banana pudding. Mahalo for a great night.

    Food was beautiful and delicious. But it was pricey for a family of 5. We sat at a reserved table down by the pool/reception. A little distracting as there was a big group that was going out so it was noisy. Other tables in the restaurant were reserved, but were empty for the time we were there.

    We had a large group of diners, and shared a few meals. Kids had the usual burgers, chips, margarita pizzas, but the chicken wings with honey glaze were a stand out, and they were ordered many more times during our stay. Pork tacos with fresh pineapple cubes and pickle were a great sharing dish for the adults, as too was the HAND MADE CAVATELLI BEEF RAGU, ( a dish that was recommended by the server , and didn't disappoint ) RIBEYE STEAK $42 ROASTED HOUSE VEGETABLE, was cooked beautifully and perfect size. House salad was an excellent addition to the meal.

    I had an extraordinary experience at Marina and Suns in Waikiki! The drinks, appetizers, and food were all amazing. The hand-cut pasta was a standout, and the live music added a lovely touch to the atmosphere. A perfect blend of culinary delights and a charming ambiance made my visit truly memorable. Highly recommend!

    We arrived early and were told to park a 30 minute round trip away. That would be fine generally but when we returned we got a lecture by a rude, condescending, and possibly socially inept waitress+ hostess explaining that we should have called (we arrived before the reservation.) The restaurant was not busy at all…she then continued the interaction after we were seated and continued to be extremely rude with a fake nice tone (she was not our server.) This was followed by inattentive and awkward service at the table by a different waiter. The food was good or at least ok depending on the dish. Flavors were fairly simple in a good way. The cocktails were just ok but very “spirit forward”, no light pours which could be a positive depending on the night you are trying to have. If the service wasn’t so unusually terrible I think Mahina and Sun’s would be a 3-4/5 overall but the service was so bad that our overall experience was unpleasant.

    The waiter assumed we would like the other fish in menu, but luckily it was still good but because we didn’t know what if fish was served, felt like we may be getting cheated as paid the same amount for whatever that substitution

    I made a reservation on Open Table and we were seated in the pool area but we wanted to be seated in the regular dining area. The regular dining area was not crowded when we got there. Our table felt like we were in a lobby of a hotel. The server was very nice although we didn’t have our water refilled regularly during our dinner. We had to ask for that. I used to come here a lot before Covid and the food was much better back then. The oysters tasted fishy and my roasted chicken was dry and tasteless. The avocado tacos used to be better and hardly had any sauce on them. My friend had a Paloma and it tasted like ice melted in it and was very watered down. Overall I was disappointed because I used to love coming here. I don’t think my friends want to come back.

    The menu has a variety of items ranging from casual dining to more specialty items with various prices. The atmosphere is interesting with an emphasis on Hawiian beach life. We found our waiter friendly and helpful in helping us choose our dinner, pointing out popular dishes on the menu. A very pleasant evening for the 3 of us.

    We had a truly horrible experience at this restaurant. We waited almost an hour for food. When it came one salad and a flatbread humus (both uncooked) did not arrive with the rest of the food. We pointed this out right away, and were assured it would be right out. Long story short 5 of us finished our meals before (after asking repeatedly) one of our group finally got their flatbread 45 mins later! They took that off the bill and gave us free dessert -but it was still the most expensive dinner of our trip and nowhere near the caliber of restaurants like Monkeypod. We also ate our dessert with our table still cluttered with the dinner dishes that we had finished probably an hour earlier -this is not such a big deal to me, but I’m mentioning to show that clearly the staff was clueless about how to serve in a restaurant. I will add that the staff was very sweet and friendly -but the experience was still extremely aggravating and unpleasant

    Stayed at this hotel for many weeks when moving to Hawaii. Ate here many times. My favorite dish was the ahi tuna but I had it when it was on special with mashed potato and the execution was perfect. The fish is always wonderful however I Don’t recommend the normal Ahi on the menu I don’t like the big chunks of raw red onion and the potato’s were fried like 5 small croutons last time I ordered it. The fish and chips, however is really good. The bar always serves great drinks and  surprisingly, the wings were excellent.
