Stunning spot for a lovely breakfast with a water view. Service was excellent, very good coffee and a perfectly made, light omelette. The granola and berries were a treat too. Will return

This restaurant at the Halekulani Hotel was good value and beautiful. Beachfront and both outdoor and inside available. Dress regulations apply but not over the top prices. Mains were superb at about $32 including my linguini with prawns and scallops and the chicken and zucchini dish was good for chicken also. Tomato soup and Parmesan wedges were spot on and... More

Fabulous meal, great cocktails and terrific wine list. Not a big fan of hotel restaurants, but Orchids is the exception! Great place to celebrate special occasions - be sure to reserve outside table for early evening as sunset is not to be missed!

Service was attentive and cheerful. Each food item was fresh and distintcly flavorfull. From the Kona Coffee cream blintzs to the luau pig and guava-eldebery parfait. This was my 5th brunch. We were seated early for our 2PM reservation. The food items were kept refilled.

When we go to Honolulu, we usually stay at the Halekulani and dine at Orchids. This time, we wanted some peace and quiet and stayed at the new Four Seasons in Ko Olina. But we still came back to Orchids. We had the onaga, which is the best we've ever tasted. The coconut cake is also the best we've ever... More

A return visit about 18 months later, and this restaurant still delivers! We ate here for breakfast and dinner. Both times, service was flawless, as was decor and presentation. The menu appears to be simplified from what I recall. This is traditional fine dining in a beautiful Ocean front setting. As there were four of use, we were able to... More

While in search of the perfect Sunday Brunch experience, we found Orchid's listed one of the best in town. It should be noted this establishment (and the resort it is located within) is quite elegant and refined compared to surrounding hotels where customers to walk in and out of restaurants from the beach. Beach and swimwear/shoes are not acceptable attire... More
