Veranda - Moana Surfrider
At Afternoon Tea, modern meets classic with sweet pastries and savory bites from our award-winning chefs and an ageless ritual of presenting our six locally crafted teas.
Complimentary valet parking is available and self-parking for four hours at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani. The attire is resort casual (no tank tops, beach, athletic wear).
We’ve been to High Tea many times. The overall has always been very good. This last visit, their were too many birds in the eating area. Some of the birds were coming underneath the tables and underneath your chairs. It was not a good experience because we were worried that the birds will come on top of the table or on us.
As a long time resident of Hawaii it really bothers me that restaurants/hotels take advantage of us. I have always come and supported many hotels and restaurants when there was hard times but a $85.00 mothers day brunch to much. That being said it seems to be the Waikiki trend. Nothing really special to the brunch just that its mothers day. What you think most would bring a few family members it really is to expensive.
Graduation Lunch. Great table and view. Waiter did forget the tea tray request but minor. Food was fantastic and all together great experience for my daughter!
Simply cannot beat the view. Noise level quite high at times. There was a singer performing at the pool about 30 feet away.
The ambiance was spectacular! What you expect when you dream of visiting Hawaii. The food and service was great as well!
Great friendly great location
Excellent ambiance - old Hawaii elegance as it should be experienced - delicious food complimented by attentive, courteous service. Recommend lunch at the Veranda for any special occasion!
Beautiful setting to enjoy a relaxing luncheon with friends.
Made res fri 4/19 for easter 4/21. Website did not show any easter menu. Called saturday to confirm menu. Was told there would be no special menu for easter, only reg menu. Arrived on easter to gind only an easter buffet, no reg menu available at all. Would never have made res fo r 85$ per plate buffet. Easter ruined for my party of 6. Horrible
The food was ok. Nothing great. Hot and damp plates made it hard to take cold items. Expected a bit more for $85 bucks. The service was great.
Easter Brunch with the family!
Very GOOOOD location.
The afternoon tea is excellent!
About that Wagyu Beef burger 💞👍🏻💥
It was my first time going and our group of 6 had a really good time! We ordered the classic afternoon tea and we're amazed at the speed of service, quick substitutions, and quality of food. Definitely coming back again.
Superb Lobster bisque... went back for this another visit. Bacon, lobster, lettuce & tomato sandwich pricey, but delicious & generous. Hamachi appetizer also very good.
Also serves high tea.
Good service, lovely venue on veranda of Moana Surfrider facing beach bar & ocean, which becomes the Beach house for dinner, with some overlap of the menu.
The experience was less than stellar this time and we had been several times to afternoon tea. For the price the value of the overall experience was not worth the view, and sadly, I would try another hotel's afternoon tea service in the future, especially since they have higher reviews and the cost is less. Hope the Moana can turn things around and/or lower the cost. Mahalo.
An experience that can’t be topped! The location view live music impeccable service and outstanding food far exceeds anything you can dream of!!
I went there specifically for the afternoon tea service. I will return with my daughter!
Went there to surprise my mom who was visiting with an afternoon tea. Had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend. The tea and food was delicious and the outdoor seating was beautiful with a nice view of the ocean.
This was one of the most delightful, delicious and relaxing dining experiences we had in Honolulu! Three of us had afternoon tea and one ordered from the regular lunch menu. Daniel, our server, was exceptional! This is a "do not miss' spot!
This is a wonderful location. Looking out onto Waikiki Beach. Great service and attention to detail.
My mother’s 88th birthday .
Loved the afternoon tea. Would of given 5 stars except some of the finger sandwiches (bread) seemed hard/not as fresh.
We ordered their popular high tea set. Tea came within a minute. We asked for milk. Took 5 minutes. Tea was getting cold. And their pastries came about 15 minutes after that. So, we basically had room temp tea and just asked for hot water for refill (duh). The server just said sorry and that they were busy. (Really???!!! Seriously!). Did not even mention getting us new tea. The experience was chill though. Something fun to do on a lazy lunchtime with good weather.
When you need someplace with ambience and the feel of old Hawaii this is the perfect place to get together with family and friends.
The bread was old and stale, the food was not the same quality. The pastries didn’t even look gourmet, definitely not worth the price.
The ambiance is spectacular on the veranda. Music playing, soft breeze, beautiful scenery. The tea service is very special.
I had my birthday high tea here and we really enjoyed it. Our server Jeremy was lovely and gave us excellent service and looked after us well. I would definitely do this again! A beautiful setting!
Beautiful scenery...Eggs Benedict on point...love the zing of the salad accompaniment!
Patio dining at its best!!
We had afternoon tea...beach is beautiful to look at. But being outdoor, the weather was cold and windy...needed to bring a jacket to keep warm
It was my first time for afternoon tea at the Veranda, and I was definitely not disappointed! I've tried other locations for tea, but this is in hot contention for #1. Sitting under the gigantic banyan tree with a view of the ocean is absolutely perfect! Lana, our server, was attentive and courteous. She explained everything from the tea and where they came from to all the food and menu options. Tip for kama'aina - you get 15% off! Valet parking is free with validation, or there's self-parking at the Princess Kaiulani. I will be visiting again for sure.
You can't beat the setting at this tea and for this reason we like it the best on the island. However, we miss some of our old favorites - such as the pot de crème is no longer offered. Also missing the chocolate element in the pastries. They are more citrus-y overall. The petite sandwiches and scones with cream and curd - so ono!
Great setting by the beach along with good lunch selections-especially the Tea Service!
My daughter and I went to the spa and decided to have afternoon tea. The view and service was awesome, but the food was okay and a little pricey.
We heard a wonderful musican playing various songs that I had to go and get his card. His name is Dave Watanabe and I will definitely go back to hear him.
