Afternoon Tea
A relaxing and refined experience - breakfast, lunch, and afternoon tea on The Veranda is a delightful island tradition. Refresh your senses while ensconced in the elegance of classic Victorian architecture, shaded under the canopy of a historic banyan tree with the sound of ocean waves lapping aside you on the shores of Waikiki.

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).

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.

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!

実質的な値上げ?と思いました。

でも、甘さなどは丁度良かったと思います。

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.

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.

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

Sweet bites
*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

Ambience
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).

Parking
Complimentary validated self-parking at Sheraton Princess Kaiulani or validated valet parking (plus tip) for up to 4 hours.

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.

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.
