    Visiting the island on vacation. I always go to The Kahala or Moana Surfrider for Afternoon Tea. Absolutely loved the offerings and service at this location. The view was incredible. Carlos, my waiter, made the experience wonderful!!! He’s a true asset to your restaurant.

    This used to be fantastic value but the tiny amount of food (for $69 per person) was a joke. We used to love high tea on the verandah but now it appears to be another tourist rip off

    Darren and the entire Team that took care of my daughter Leilani and I for our very first Mommy and Daughter High Tea were AMAZING!!! I grew up enjoying this with my beautiful Mom (who has since passed away), and it was such a delight to be able to share this with my daughter. Everything was delicious! Absolute perfection!
