The mere mention of Hawaii is enough to prompt visions of grass skirts and colorful cocktails with tiny umbrellas. While you will find some kitsch in Honolulu, you’ll also find art museums, bike paths, and some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Popular Waikiki Beach has soft sands and great surf. For majestic Oahu views scramble to the top of Diamond Head – a 350-acre volcanic crater. Historic structures like Iolani Palace and Ali'iolani Hale are worth a visit on a non-beach day.

This place has a great feeling when entering. There is a decent size menu and lots to look at. The staff is great! The gentleman behind the counter let me sample many kinds of poke which was very nice. My dish consisted of a handful of different poke such as shoyu, ahi, spicy ahi, and garlic. It was all amazing.

Unique on the island of Oahu because of it's 100% Brazilian style Acai Bowl, Tropical Tribe brings you a delightfully pure Acai and Guarana base, topped with freshly cut fruits on crunchy granola.Tropical Tribe import their own high quality ingredients from Brazil to create the Authentic Acai Bowl experience.
Good Value for money. Every time we visit Hawaii we come here for the Acai bowls. Right next to McDonalds the place is clean. Always order the Acai Bowl with extra banana, granola and honey.

This place was recommended to me and what a recommendation it was!! Just up from Safeway on Kapahulu Avenue this is breakfast heaven. So much to choose from at very reasonable prices for Waikiki. I opted for the mega stuffed breakfast burrito. Will definitely return. The walk here from Hilton Hawaiian Village took about 50mins. 2 must stops on the way back are Leonard's bakery and Da Hawaiian Poke Company

Ahi poke bowl with brown rice was truly delicious. The lines out the door prove this is the place to eat! In an area that does not look very safe, but everything is fine. Plenty of locals and tourists around. Very limited parking and no seating inside. There are only 2 picnic tables outside so many people take their food to go. Everything is reasonably priced. We were able to sit at one of the picnic tables and enjoy our lunch. It was outrageously fresh and delicious! HIGHLY recommend.

Award-winning restaurant featuring exquisite Neoclassic French cuisine, oceanfront views. Hawaii’s longest-running AAA Five Diamond restaurant, since 1990, and the only restaurant in Hawaii to be awarded a Five-Star designation by Forbes Travel Guide. Recognized as the finest restaurant in Honolulu, La Mer captures the elegance and romance of Halekulani. Its internationally acclaimed menu features local, tropical ingredients in dishes inspired by flavors from France. Elegant evening attire for women. Dinner jackets or dress shirts, dress slacks and shoes for gentlemen. Reservations recommended. Open daily from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. As an elegant fine dining restaurant, La Mer restricts patrons to adults and children 8 years or older.
You would never expect to find L'Aperitif in Honolulu, let alone Hawaii. It is, without a doubt, the most elegant establishment in the touristy Waikiki strip.
Unfortunately, my colleagues and I weren't aware of the dress code. Our local Honolulu-based colleague didn't tell us. The general manager made an exception and allowed us to sit in the bar area.
The atmosphere is elegant, though I confess that requiring jackets seems a bit much for Waikiki. I have no problem requiring gentlemen to wear collared shirts, trousers and shoes, but not many tourists bring a blazer or sport jacket with them to Hawaii.
Still, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The service was excellent.

Karai Crab is a fun and spicy seafood restaurant. Located next to the historic Willows Restaurant in Moiliili, 5 to 10 minutes away from Waikiki. Menu offerings include Dungeness Crab, Shrimp, Clams, Fried Catfish, Cioppino, and much more! Bold flavors in all sauces created by Executive Chef, Miles Miyamoto will have you asking for more! Karai Crab offers a kid-friendly menu as well as Take Out. See you at Karai!
Took the bus to the restaurant from Waikiki and then walked all the way back afterwards. The small restaurant was full indoors and so we had an outdoor table which had a lovely view of the oriental pond, and covered Willows Restaurant adjoining. Kinda reminded me of Pagoda Hotel. My husband enjoyed his Snow Crab with cajun sauce, accompanied with french bread and local sweet corn. I'm not a super crab eater and finally decided on the Cioppino which consisted of 5 each of the mussels, shrimps, clams, with some penne pasta; plus surprise, a dungeness crab on top. I was just expecting a few chunks of crab. Wow, that was a lot of seafood. Oh yummy, filling, and happy to try something different. We even had some soft serve ice cream at the end of our dinner, complimentary. Can't wait to go back again and try something different. Thank you for a great evening. The male host and waitress were wonderful explaining everything to us first timers. Mahalo!

Dined here on a Friday night as a special meal on our Hawaii vacation.
WHAT A GEM!
The food was truly amazing, and the staff were friendly, informative and formed part of the special interaction that made the meal special.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys great Japanese cuisine.
The location is entirely unexpected for fine dining, but that added to the special evening.

Great food for the price. The portion size is great - 6oz of steak plus a large side of rice and salad for less than $10. Can’t go wrong. Steak was tender and tasty. As others mention it is a bit hard to find, we wandered a bit before coming across it. It is in the apartment building/hotel next to some other window restaurants. Not a free standing shack as I was expecting to see.

Modernistic, up-to-date bar/restaurant off the main drag. Nice fish selection but pricey. No happy hour. Great opah fish tacos.

Turns out I wrote a review of this restaurant in 2012, although the menu has evolved and the place feels different (new location?). The feel is still informal, the service attentive and thoughtful, and the menu full of delightful surprises. We began with an appetizer special of 3 different dim sum, two each of lobster, pork belly and oxtail -- each with a different sauce and all delicious. We meandered through shishito peppers, a superb avocado and crab salad and more pork belly -- along with a substandard martini (way too 'dirty', and not shaken enough) and my new favorite beer, a Japanese rice beer called Orion. Desserts sounded great but we passed. It was a relaxed and generally excellent dining experience.
