@fetehawaii ‘s farm-to-table / new continental cuisine 🌴- Waikīkī love child @whitesandshotel

2022 James Beard award winner Chef Robynne Maii and the highly regarded Fête team is responsible for developing the innovative cocktail and food menu at Waikiki's newest restaurant inside White Sands Hotel — Heyday.

With a stylish alfresco dining area and new-continental inspired food and ingredients, Heyday takes the traditional elements of Continental cuisine and gives them a modern and international twist like you've never seen (or tasted) before. Our bamboo bar is the only venue on the island where you can swing (yes, you read that correctly) while sipping on cocktails inspired by Hawaiian flavors and fruits. Breathe easy as the bar and dining room are entirely outside!

Combined with the retro aesthetic of White Sands Hotel and featuring Hawaiian music with a contemporary flair, you will be transported back to the 1960's thanks to this new dining experience.

    Tucked away in the courtyard of a small hotel, this little place has good food and fun craft cocktails. Though in the middle of Waikiki, it feels private and tropical at night. If you are lucky, you can sit at one of their swings at the bar.

    Disappointing!!! Food was cold, portions were small and uninspiringly presented! Based on other reviews I was expecting at least a 4 star experience. The location was pleasant seated around the pool and our server did a good job to find a nice table for us, other than that, I would not recommend.

    Having read the insider comments from the owners of Hana Koa Brewing Co on where they eat in Waikiki in Condé Nast Traveler, we sought out HeyDay. And looking forward to the ‘awesome hideaway’ we were not disappointed. The friendly staff and delicious food was a plus! The best wedge salad ever, and the chocolate cake delish, well done. A special thanks to Ken our waiter.

    Zero complaints about our dinner at Heyday. Love the outdoor vibe, servers were busy but never waited for food and drink. Perfect choice for a low key meal after a long travel day. Teriyaki chicken sandwich, potato mac salad and a Mai Tai for the win!!!

    We wanted to go somewhere in Waikiki that wasn’t crawling with tourists. This place is a hidden gem. We’ve also heard that the food and drinks from Fete were good. The live Exotica/Tiki band INTOXIKA made the night! It’s like really stepping back in time. Really!

    I would not suggest the cajun chicken, and when we told the service that, she immediately tuned out our comment about it. She just quickly grabbed our stuff and handed us our bill. We were shocked because we said it extremely politely and said nothing against them, just a heads up.

    Heyday was our favorite excursion on our Waikiki trip. It’s located at the White Sands Hotel which is super retro, cute, and relaxing. It’s also away from all the noise and chaos of Waikiki Beach. The drinks were fantastic, fresh, and strong (definitely try the pina colada and banana hammock!!) The food was so delicious, we enjoyed the Maui Onion dip and the chicken satay skewers which were so tender and good!! Our server, Zach, was friendly, helpful, and super chill. We enjoyed a long nice conversation with him, he was great!! The atmosphere is so great there, with a cute swimming pool, beautiful decor, and a fun swing bar!! Definitely a must to visit!

    Food was great despite limited choice. The Mahi mahi,pork schnitzel and steak were very good as well as the salad and sides. However the access to parking is limited and not worth the hassle in Waikiki as their are many other places to go with good food and easier access. Service staff pleasant and friendly.

    We love this place. The ambience and atmosphere are wonderful. Service is pretty good, depends on the time of day and your server. Food is decent, and sometimes really good. Depends on when you go I guess… I would give it five stars, but I had to wait quite a while for my food and they forgot my drinks last time.. I will definitely go back though, it’s like a little oasis in Waikiki.

    Reservation calls to restaurant and attendant were surprisingly dismissive and below satisfactory and unlike HeyDay. However, a manager on duty made every effort to apologize and correct. Still, I’ll never make another reservation at 5pm again. We were dismissed repeatedly for having made a reservation at 5 “while a party was finishing” and told we should not have made one until 6. The availability on Open Table failed me w out of town guests who I had raved to. ☹️

    Huge fan of the Heyday! Came for lunch and ended up staying for hours. Between the bar swings, the pool, the jacuzzi and the incredible food and drinks, it all I could ask for! Cutest decor as well.
