Always try to dine here at least once, always for lunch, the menu is reasonably priced, for such a famous establishment, and there is always something that we fancy, which helps. Service can sometimes be a little slow.

We were married in Hawaii 25 years ago on 3rd July and our first meal as a married couple was at this restaurant. We decided to return for our anniversary celebration. Everything was perfect! Food, service, location, nothing could be faulted!

It wouldn't be a visit to Oahu, without a stop at the Royal Hawaiian and the Mai Tai Bar! Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head, the ocean, the people watching and some of the Best Mai Tai's. Make sure you walk the beach.
