日本語のメニューがあったので安心でした。朝食で訪れましたが、日本人が8割だった気がします。
お野菜も新鮮で、とても美味しかったです。少しお値段が高い気もしますが、ハワイなので仕方がないかな?
家族連れにはキッズメニューがあると助かります。

We picked Bills at the last minute and it was a fabulous choice. Food was pretty good and service was excellent. Accomodated 9 adults with children without a problem.

Mediocre is too high praise. Ridiculously expensive, poor service, room temp, tasteless food, wrong order. I could go on & on....you’ve got the picture! For the aggravation, they deducted the coffee....give me a break (but NOT Bill’s Aussie!)

Bill's doesn't disappoint. Fresh local ingredients whenever possible, consistently good preparation of items on menu. Full bar and great music (not live, but the compilation is always fantastic.

Loved the atmosphere! Beautiful location, with inside and outside seating! We went for breakfast and the food was excellent! We were looking for breakfast but refreshing and filling. My husband likes the classics where I like to venture out a bit. He got some hot cakes that were to DIE for! I got avocado toast with poached egg! Great and fresh ingredients and very filling. Wait staff and atmosphere were excellent as well! Definitely recommend!!

We had a friend visiting from Canada & was really looking forward to a great evening. The service was very poor. We had to grab our own side plates & the attentiveness was less than acceptable.

Came because we love Bills in Sydney, but the food here is not even close to the standard in Sydney.
Would possibly return, but not a must visit sad to say.

I ate here three years ago and had a much better meal. The food was very average and not particularly good value. The service was fine and atmosphere quite pleasant. My husband chose an excellent Californian white wine. If I ever return to Hawaii I probably will not eat here again.

I don’t think I’ve ever posted a negative review, but this dining experience was so average it deserves a mention
The staff were ambivalent and robotic, lacking the great American service we’ve come to know and expect.
I ordered the Avocado toast with poached eggs. The presentation was great, but the poached eggs which were sous vide, were rubbery, watery and cold. When this was bought to the attention of our waiter, he pretty much shrugged, ordered a new egg and left the plate on the table floating in it’s watery mess
Very disappointing as Bills food is awesome and this breakfast was a poor brand experience

We have long been fans of Bill Grainger and his cooking and we were excited to have the opportunity to eat at one of his restaurants.

At first sight the place does not look very inviting with a quite austere lobby on the ground floor. Anyway the young lady who confirmed our reservation was very pleasant and showed us to our table. The restaurant itself is spacious and well fitted with a good atmosphere and we looked forward to our meal.

Our server explained the “specials” and we both ordered the fish special. Cocktails, wine and first course were delivered without problem and then we waited for our main course. We waited and waited and eventually asked our server for a timescale for service of our food. He seemed quite shocked that we were still waiting - any half competent server would have been watching over his section to ensure customers were happy and enjoying their meal. After an enquiry to the kitchen it transpired that the fish special had been sold out but no-one had told our server.

We had to reorder a different course which was enjoyable but frankly not what either of us really wanted. The manager did not charge for our bottle of wine which was a positive gesture but our evening was spoilt and we chose not to visit the restaurant again later in our visit to Oahu.

Mistakes happen and we accept that. However it was the lack of attention from our server that really caused the problem and that level of service should simply not occur at a restaurant of this quality.

Bill's Hawaii was a highlight for us during our stay in Honolulu, so much so that we ate there twice. The cocktails were delicious and authentic while the food was beautiful in both presentation and taste. The wait staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
