Overall a disappointing experience. CON 1) I arrived at 5:30pm for dinner and was given an electronic device that would light up and vibrate when my table was ready. I waited not more than 20' from the maitre d'. After an hour I inquired and was told that I was alerted 30 minutes ago, and that the device might be... More

After a long, slow stroll along the picture postcard scenes of Waikiki Beach, we discovered the Tropics Bar and Grill where we savoured a delightful seafood lunch, mai tais, spectacular service. Very casual and relaxing atmosphere in open air seating. We were served very promptly. The seafood dish and grilled chicken dish were exquisite. Very relaxing start to our Waikiki... More

Fun bar and grill right along the beach. We visited a couple times and enjoyed the nightly entertainment. Beautiful views of the beach and great food.

Love going to this place because the sunsets are amazing. The morning views for brunch are also wonderful. The food is average, but with views like this the food tastes even better. Unfortunately they don't take reservations, so at peak times the wait can be long. Grab a buzzer and then roam the shops until it goes off. Live music... More

Same food as the beach bars around the Hilton. Average prices for the area and food is OK/average. What sets this apart is the following: 1/2 price kids menu 5-6pm Live music (nice, not too loud but sets a nice tone for a family meal) Beach/view - can't be beat - if you like people watching it is perfect, if...

Fantastic view. They seem to have a bit of a bird problem but they have a net around the restaurant that prevents most birds from entering. Food was good but Kinda greasy. Bring tums.

We stayed at the Hilton for 7 nights and have to admit this place was our favorite place to eat and have drinks. Breakfast, Lunch and dinner we tried them all. Delicious food and a view that is just gorgeous from early morning to late at night and especially when there is the fire works. Busy on weekends and had... More

It is pricey but between location and taste... very nice. Too many french fries, but the chicken sandwich was among the best ever. Right out by Kahanamoku Beach and part of the Hilton Village...very pleasant. Live music.

We ordered all pupu's, drinks and desserts. Everything was so delicious and the wait staff made sure we never had an empty plate or glass on the table. My dessert was the Rainbow Cheesecake, so colorful and very tasty!

The strip at Waikiki should offer plenty of variety to suit all tastes. Unfortunately, for those of us who have to live within their means - here that means a decision between fast fatty takeaway and very expensive al la carte. Fortunately, for those who are patient enough, a sprinkling of reasonably priced (by Waikiki standards) dining establishments do exist.... More
