Went to an evening dinner with family on our last evening in Waikiki. We dined on the outside seating area under the Hau Tree. The vista and sound of the ocean was very relaxing. Our host and servers were extremely helpful in seating us and...More

Twenty-five years ago, the New Otani Hotel was the go-to place for our group working in Hawaii and beyond. Located beyond the zoo and park toward Diamond head, it is located on the quiet end of Waikiki. The Hau Tree Lanai is a casual outdoor...More

Open air restaurant situated right next to the quieter beach near Diamond Head. Beautiful setting among trees and canopies, if needed. Excellent wine-pairing/degustation menu as well as a la carte. Service was great!

Great location on the beach. Ideal for enjoying a couple of their cocktail specials and people watch. Lots of birds that are quite entertaining. The wait staff has to come and spray them with water if the food is not cleared right away after guests...More

Breakfast is extremely busy, a reservation is a must for both breakfast and dinner, especially if you would like to sit at a table facing the ocean.

We stopped for a quick lunch while walking down the beach. It took about 20 minutes for anyone to stop at our table. Our waitress was super friendly but apparently overworked. We ordered our drinks and lunch right away worried we might not see her...More

Cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. Recommend taking a taxi the short way out from Waikiki Beach. Restaurant is in a great position overlooking the beach and watching the sunset if you time it right. Service we received was personalised and outstanding. Great choice of...More

The Hau Tree Lanai is perhaps Honolulu's favorite beachside restaurant. Locals gravitate to its ideal location, just outside Waikiki proper and at the beginning of Diamond Head's Gold Coast. The restaurant is located in The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel, an ideal place to start the day, enjoy a leisurely lunch or a romantic sunset dinner.
