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.

good restaurant. kind to all customers including children. want to revisit.
Nice staff, great selections. Enjoyable live music. Love the afternoon tea!
Enjoyed tea with a beautiful view of Waikiki Beach. Food was delicious. Service was friendly but we had to literally flag down our server on a few occasions. Parking is easy at Princess Kaiulani; with validation, first four hours are free.
Loved it thank you
Early Mothers’ Day lunch for Mum & I. Beautiful setting, friendly and professional service and delicious food. It felt very special. Not cheap, but definitely worth it for a treat. Would recommend.
Perhaps one of The Most lovely spots for Afternoon Tea on the island of Oahu !! I have been coming to the Moana since childhood and since early adulthood have made a tradition for myself and friends to have lunch or tea on the Veranda. It never disappoints :)
We love going to tea, however , I noticed the last few times we have gone, the tea selection have been less and less. They use to offer at least 12 different teas, now it is down to 8.
Service is very good, but I think the selection of the desserts could be better.
Overall a good place to go have tea, but prices are a little high, but since we go for a special occasion, it's ok. If the prices were a little less, we would go more often.
Absolutely loved it! Beautiful setting, excellent customer service, food was heavenly! The Moana is a favorite of mine, and I will be sure to come back. What could be better than Afternoon Tea with a stunning view of the beach and ocean!
Great service! Great people!!
I loved everything and the spot they put us for our anniversary! My fiancé had a wonderful time as well. I would love to come here again!!!
Did not live where we were seated. We overlooked lanai furniture with a peek of ocean. I can get comparable food without a view for a fraction of the price.
Service was the only great thing about my experience.
Awesome service with the best view! Right on the beach! Can’t wait to go back!
It was a perfect day and we had a perfect table with a wonderful view. Food and service were excellent
Family in from out if town. Wanted to take them to beautiful place with great food. Verandah ticks all the boxes. Lovely!
My girlfriends birthday
Great salmon. Beautiful location. Friendly and courteous staff.
The views, food and service were very nice.
great place, great food, somewhat better with discount coupon
perfect place for our honeymoon
Excellent food and outstanding service.
Who can’t be transported to heaven on Waikiki beach but the Veranda takes you all the way there. Yes prices are crazy and portions small but what would you pay for the best seat on the shore.
Amazing food and venue!Amazing view
We are kama'aina who rarely go to Waikiki but wanted to have a lovely moment together. Tea was the perfect thing and the most outstanding part was the service. Pleasant, attentive without being intrusive. The tea service was tasty but the portions somewhat skimpy compared to tea around the world. We particularly enjoyed the savories and scones. The pastries could improve. All in all, though, a delightful afternoon moment!
My gfs and I did "afternoon" tea for 4 using travelzoo vouchers ($59 for 2 for the classic set, can use up to 2 vouchers per table). Normally it is $45/person so this was a steal! The classic set came with 5 sandwiches, 7 pastries and a choice from 6 teas.
Savory "sandwich" bites
*lobster- FAVORITE savory, with its fresh generous portions of sweet lobster and a very subtle aioli
*truffle egg- very pleasant with that soft bread, elevated with that delicate use of truffle oil
*smoked salmon - a beautiful flavorful bite, and wished there was more
*chicken salad - very tasty with beautifully soft bread and added freshness of the sliced cucumber and tomato
*miso chickpea tartlet- surprisingly tasty
*peppermint choco macaron - lovely, very forward mint flavor without tasting like tooth paste, but also balanced with that strong dark choco layer, and the cookies itself were so delicate, with a soft chew.
*Stollen- softer than it looks with a surprisingly pleasant sweet holiday flavor
*Kabocha Madeleine - soft and nice pumpkin spiced flavor.
*snowflake cookie- meh. It was too hard and not memorable. But beautifully iced.
*cranberry Scone (x2) - ok, a little dry but at least saved by the lemon curd and clotted cream
*chestnut cream roll - the chestnut filling is so smooth, the cake is so soft and fluffy. It was perfectly sweet.
*tartlet - AMAZING and our FAVORITE dessert. The Bottom is buttery shortbread,filled with a marzipan, topped with a choco mousse dome dusted. Love the layers of textures that weren't overly sweet
Enjoyed the old architecture and the veranda. Perfect setting for tea time right in the beach. The live music was SUPERB, his selection of music was on point and enhanced our experience.
Service very friendly, but slow (waited a while to order for our food, and to get the check).
Complimentary validated self-parking at Sheraton Princess Kaiulani or validated valet parking (plus tip) for up to 4 hours.
Our visit was perfection! We were given one of only two oceanfront tables and the service was impeccable. Staff were very nice and the food was amazing. Highly recommend.
Beautiful ambiance, right by the beach. Food was excellent and service good
For my wife’s birthday during vacations in Hawaii.
it was really excellent experience.
It was wonderful time for us.
Nothing beats eating lunch on the beach in beautiful surroundings. Delicious finger sandwiches, good variety, specialty teas and fattening sweets. Thanks to Travelzoo I could afford a little bit of paradise pleasure.
It was nice to enjoy vacation at such a historical and cheerful hotel in Waikiki. It was worth to go.
We were so thrilled to find this place on the last day of our trip, but regretful that we didn't know about it sooner. The ambiance was wonderful. You can enjoy high tea or a casual break from the beach. Definitely coming back on our next trip!
Overall very good and it remains a place I'd take my special friends and family to. Menu has been updated since I came last time in 2018. High tea is what we order. Lucky on day of our lunch the weather
was gorgeous. It was a picture perfect day.
