    As always Mahina and Sun’s is one of the standard bearers in Honolulu. This restaurant is roomy, with a great vibe, and live music. But the delicious food is king here. They have tasty, fun cocktails and a passionate, knowledgeable staff. We had their grilled octopus salad…I would get this every time if there weren’t so many awesome dishes. We also a generous bowl of their u’lu (bread fruit) which is the best I’ve had in Hawaii. And for our entree we shared their chicken melanese. This is my favorite menu item…I think. The pool side dining with live music was the icing on the cake. Can’t wait to visit again.

    Delicious comfort food in a charming venue--a refreshing change from the touristy spots in Waikiki. Excellent clams in a savory broth, tender pork chop on a bed of coconut flavored kalo leaves are must order menu items. Efficient, courteous and friendly service.

    Enjoyed the live music. The good is very good and the drinks are very good as well. The inside of the restaurant is a little dim. The best seats are at the bar. The drinks are probably the best part of the experience. The food is good too but definitely there for the drinks.

    I had initially made a reservation for 6 and then needed to add 1 more seat. On your app, it wanted me to choose a new time slot, but I called them and it was no problem adding a seat at our selected time. Our waitress was great, never over bearing like some can be. She was good enough to split our table into 4 checks as requested. Everyone loved their food! We had such a variety between us. The only thing I didn't care for was the Margherita pizza. It's on a cracker style crust. Not bad , but not what I like. The SurfJack hotel front desk validates parking for 4 hours at the Hyatt Centric just a couple blocks away.

    Wow! Loved it. Our reservation at another restaurant was cancelled and we quickly scrambled and took a chance on Mahina. We are so glad we did! Great food, awesome vibe and really cool ambiance. We are going back Tuesday! Cancelled our other reservation and made another one here!! Alina was a great server and ambassador of the restaurant. Couldn’t have had a better experience. See you guys soon! Don’t hesitate!

    Ambiance, excellent food and delicious drinks. We love Mahina & Suns for all of these reasons. We started by sharing three appetizers: A’u Crudo, Smoked Ahi Toast, and He’e Salad. All well seasoned and nicely balanced. Each member of our party got a different main dish and the only dish not finished was the Chicken Milanese….because it’s huge! Made a lovely breakfast the next day. Our server was attentive in just the right way, and the timing of our meal was spot on. The quality of ingredients combined with the skill and care of the kitchen makes Mahina & Suns a true standout and excellent value in Waikiki.

    We stayed here when we moved into the island, and it has quickly become a family favorite. The star is amazing and the food is even better! Do yourself a favor get the steak and the pasta together! But if you don’t, you won’t be disappointed in anything of this menu. We go back often.

    Good vibes and atmosphere, a restaurant surrounding the hotel pool. Never experienced something like that, so that was cool. We celebrated our 3 year anniversary dinner here and the experience was ok. Our server was really great, super friendly, gave good recommendations on the menu except the chicken Milanese. The Milanese is a half chicken deep fried with arugula salad on top. The dish has a lot of potential but was very lackluster. Tasted like the fryer oil hadn’t been changed all night so the flavor profile wasn’t there. Took a few bites and was done with it. On the other hand, the pork chop was great. Thick cut pork chop with luau leaves at the bottom, very flavorful. The clams appetizer was also delicious with a nice little spice to it from the chili. Dessert was a banana pudding that was also really good. Cocktails were ok.
